Come to Live on the Green!

Anyone who's moseyed through downtown Nashville the past couple Thursday evenings knows just how successful Live On the Green has become. The free concert series has grown to be a major attraction in town. With such a large production, a lot of people (fans, bands, the mayors office, sponsors, etc.) depend on the website being an effective communication tool. The last thing promotors need to worry about is their website performance. Learn how Sitemason works with clients and partners and check out the remaining schedule!

If a Bee Wrote a Blog

It'd be all buzzz! Bad jokes aside, that's where we begin today's post, tackling some web buzzwords. Specifically, Progressive Enhancement and Responsive Design. We'll look at the meaning of these concepts and how we're employing them in the new interface.

Sitemason 6 Watch: Interface Teaser


Although only a shadow of its future self, today we wanted to tease the new interface and show off our progress of SM6 up to this point. There's still a long way to go, but our baby is taking shape. I mean, dang, just look at that responsiveness!

More Than Hosting

Cloud services AWS, support, and monitoringLets be honest, when an organization first gets started on a website, they rarely weigh the benefits of hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) vs installed software like WordPress or Drupal. They rely on their web designer to come up with the technical solution.

Sitemason, of course, is a hosted platform and has been since our inception way back in 2001. Part of our mission is to extol the benefits of the entire SaaS concept. So naturally, when we work with clients and partners, part of the initiation process is to explain the benefits of our hosted platform. If you're in the mood for a list, it's your lucky day. We present to you the top 5 benefits of our hosted content management platform. Read on to see the list...

For those of you keeping up with the Responsive Web Design movement and/or the progress on our new interface, we're extremely excited to show off our new font icons. As part of the interface redesign, Kevin Kennedy went back to the bottomless well that is his creative mind to invent Sitemason's own font icon set.

If you're saying, "Wait a minute, did you say Font Icons? You must be confused." I'm so glad you pointed out my penchant for confusion, but in this case, I'm not crazy. Read on for an explanation, or checkout the full Font Icon Set if your idea of a good time is perusing Webdings. Now who's crazy!…

Sitemason 6 Watch: Talking APIs with Tim Moses

As part of our look in at the continued progress of the new version of Sitemason, we asked Tim Moses, lead developer and CEO, to tell us a bit more about the new API's inner workings.

No journalists or developers were harmed in the making of this interview.

Stop the Car, I Think I Just Saw an Incredible Website

Website screenshots stacked in a pileSitemason is not a big company, but so far this year we're feeling our oats. Thanks to our great partners, the sites being built on the Sitemason platform have never looked better. Today we wanted to show off some of the work we've been privileged to be a part of just this year...
