Here are the most common myths you are going to find or people might tell you about:
PSD to HTML5
Myth Number 1: HTML is a Programming Language
Hyper Text Markup Language is a formatting language and nothing more. It enables the web page designer to display text in different ways by using formatting tags. Generally, a programming language allows you to describe some sort of process of doing something, whereas HTML is a way of adding context and structure to text.
Myth Number 2: Text cannot be displayed vertically on tables
This particular myth evaporated because of Internet Explorer. Microsoft Internet Explorer has, and has had for quite a long time, its own style properties. The vertical-align property may be used to alter the vertical positioning of an inline element, relative to its parent element or to the element’s line.
Myth Number 3: Support audio recording from your microphone
HTML5 cannot support this just yet. Remember never the less that is not recommended to have audio in your sites. Unless of course you are a musician but be sure the viewer can choose to hear it.
PSD to WordPress
Myth Number 1: You can use it for everything
WordPress is great but it’s not the best tool if you want different kinds of designs on it. Remember it was first designed to function as a blog so there aren’t a lot of varieties to play with it.
Myth Number 2: It can support different kinds of services
You cannot have a live chat, a forum, a blog and your original page on it because it would explode! Not really, but that is just too much for our friend who is not designed for that amount of information.
Myth Number 3: All sites are WordPress friendly
This not only has caused nightmares, but some of our coders are in therapy. One of those is Flash. We have been saying how difficult it is to work with entire sites designed with Flash, since not only are they useless for the viewer (they just get tired of waiting) but you must be careful with the flash designer or they might trick you.
PSD to Magento
Myth Number 1: Change your Magento Base URL to a URL that does not point to your Magento root installation
When your store’s base URL is “yourstore.com” but “www.yourstore.com” is the URL that’s licensed for Ultimento. Technically these are 2 different URLs so you’d want to make sure to provide the correct URL.
For example if you have Magento installed in your domain root folder at “yourstore.com”, you can’t simply put “http://yourstore.com/magento/” in the Base URL field in the Magento admin. But if “www.yourstore.com” also points to your root folder, then you can safely change the Base URL in your Magento admin to “http://www.yourstore.com/”.
PSD to Shopify
Myth Number 1: It is the same as Magento
Shopify is not the same as Magento. Magento was design for Big Shops and Shopify works for small bussiness. You cannot have a lot of different products displays or pictures or videos. It does has different adjustments to your necessities but not as specialized as Magento.
Myth Number 2: It works with lots of languages
Actually Shopify has its own language. Liquid is the template language used. It is written in line with your theme’s HTML and lets you display your shop’s content however you see fit.
Myth Number 3: It has a custom Check Out
The big customization you can do is change the colors and add your logo but if you want to change the information or put it on the top then this is not the CMS for you.
