Moving on, in the year 2007 we decided to adopt CSS Style sheets and make our banners a bit more shiny to reflect our name. So we used Linux Gimp to create the basic Sun that replaced the old Illumine Star. For that reason, we used the Gimp Super Nova lighting Effect. In the same time – we created our own style sheets based on Arial and Tahoma fonts. This was the last page version that did not rely on a CMS system. The page was also translated 100% to Greek.
Years 2010 – 2013. We decided that a CMS system is the present and the future. We had chosen Joomla – the leading trend and #1 CMS tool at that time. Another decision was to have the page only in English since most of our clients were abroad or companies with English as the communication language. Site included a dedicated login page for accessing the on line training material since we had a lot of online training courses at that time.
In 2015 we moved to WordPress. We were using a couple of plugins such as Nooz, Contact Form, Eggplant, Sitemap to make the site working and we do use a lot of extras. Our company Blog and LinkedIn profiles were also referenced from the site. This time our page reflected our social media presence, even if we do not like and do not support FB, we maintain profiles on Twitter, LinkedIn since 2006 and of course Blogger. We also maintain our repositories at Github.com.
Also the new CMS based page had the following changes
- We adopted HTTPS for serving content
- All documents updated for the year 2014-2015
From 2019, after 15 years we moved away our business from Greece and Greek providers and we operate globally with the power of awardspace.net. The old domain illumine.gr has been redirected to our new illumineit.com site. Logo changed to “Software Applications, IT and Cloud Technology”
