Still afraid? See below.
There are conflicting studies about the risk of accidents on Friday the 13th. The Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) on June 12, 2008, stated that “fewer accidents and reports of fire and theft occur when the 13th of the month falls on a Friday than on other Fridays, because people are preventatively more careful or just stay home. Statistically speaking, driving is slightly safer on Friday the 13th, at least in the Netherlands; in the last two years, Dutch insurers received reports of an average 7,800 traffic accidents each Friday; but the average figure when the 13th fell on a Friday was just 7,500.” However, a 1993 study in the British Medical Journal that compared the ratio of traffic accidents between Friday the 6th and Friday the 13th stated that there is a significant increase in traffic-related accidents on Friday the 13th.There are indications that there are more accidents on Fridays than average weekdays (irrespective of the date) probably because of alcohol consumption. Therefore it is less relevant for this purpose to compare Friday the 13th with any other 13th day of another month. (check wiki)

Which CMS to use

Part 2. WordPress




If you need a platform for personal page, blog or website with a blog, we would suggest you to choose a WordPress template. WordPress is a very popular CMS engine, that gains more and more popularity nowadays.

Originally WordPress was developed as a blog platform, so it’s the best CMS to use if you need a blog or site with blog/news/latest articles. It has a lot of useful blog functions by default: blog categories, comments, post tags, display post date, author, calendar of posts etc. You’ll be able to approve new comments, allow users post comments after registration, add posts beforehand and publish them at later date, display short teasers of full posts (excerpts) with Read More buttons and use a lot of other useful options for blog.

On the other hand, WordPress is very good for usual sites as well. WordPress admin page is considered to be the easiest among all of free CMS platforms. You’ll need just a few hours to learn how to add posts and pages.

If you need to add a custom module/plugin/function you’ll be able to add it through admin page to template widget areas. WordPress templates may contain different number of widget areas. If you check templates preview, you’ll see widgets map in the bottom of template page. Default WordPress plugins are: recent posts, popular posts, calendar, archives, categories, tag cloud, RSS, recent comments. Search bar comes by default as well.

Another amazing function of WordPress is one source of all external plugins/add-ons. It’s possible to download them easily from the official site (so called ‘one-click installation’). The system will notify you when new versions of your plugins are issued, thus you’ll be able to update them by one click and always use latest secure versions.

Adding content is pretty easy: fill in post name, post article, choose category for the post in the right and click a button to publish the post. Native visual editor has basic functions you might need: bold, italic, list, text color, alignment (left, right, center, full width), custom characters etc. If you want to add an image and make it ‘featured’ (visitors will see it next to short story text on your blog page), the system will resize it automatically. Thus all blog posts will have the same style (same image size and layout) without any extraordinary efforts :).


If you use WorpPress template for your site, you’ll be able to change user roles from usual registered users to editors of your site. Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t provide any options to change layout or add different blocks on different pages through admin page. If you choose to build your site with WordPress, all content pages will have the same sidebars, footer and header, just content part will be different. Though modern WordPress templates allow you to choose different layouts for content pages.

Assigning SEO friendly URL’s (URL’s like www.site.com/about_me instead of www.site.com/post#1) is not difficult as well. It’s possible to set a template for all links structure and change any link URL during adding new pages.

Overall, if you need a website that is easy to manage and update, we would suggest you to use WordPress CMS as a platform for your site.

Templatetuning initially do not provide Facebook templates installation (we do care about your page “secrets”).
But you always can order our template installation/uploading (on your server) service.
We will provide you with URL you’ll need for template linking to Facebook page.

To order installation/files uploading, please enter our live chat.
Then after it’s uploaded and you have an URL, there are just a few steps left to get your Facebook page dressed-up.

Here are instructions for you:
To use a Facebook template with the new standard from Facebook (iframes)

1. Log in to your Facebook account (you only need a regular Facebook account, anyone is eligible for creating Facebook pages).

2. When logged in, create a Page (you may either follow the URL – http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php – or press “Create a page for my business” on any other Facebook brand page you see)

3. For further steps you’ll have to create a Facebook app, that’s a very easy process.

—-3.1. Verify your account – http://www.facebook.com/developers/apps.php
This is performed by entering a code sent to your cell phone via SMS or by verifying your credit card.

—-3.2. Create a new Facebook app

—-3.3. Configure the newly created app
——–a. In a Canvas section type in an app’s name (canvas page) and a path (Canvas URL – the one TT provided you after the template installed on your server). Also, choose iFrame as a Canvas type and “Auto-resize” in iFrame size.
——–b. In Page Tabs section specify a name that you want to appear for the tab, and in the tab URL field type the index.html, which is where your page contents are. Also, make sure you have iFrame chosen as a Page Tab type.
—-3.4. Assign this new app to your Facebook page – press the “Add to my page” button on the app profile page.
If the tab doesn’t appear on your Facebook page, go to page settings (“Edit” link at the top), then go to Apps, locate your app and click “Edit settings”. Make sure you have the status “Added” there, if not – click the “add” link in a settings popup.

That’s it!
Time to enjoy your new FaBulous page!
