Sitemason 6 Watch: Actions in Action

Continuing our interface teaser, today we wanted to show off how Actions will work in the new interface. Sitemason defines Actions as any change that modifies the list. Here's a brief video showing off Adding a Page, Reordering the list, editing a Page, Duplicating a Page, and finally deleting that duplicate. Enjoy!

Click Local: Nashville Edition

Griffin, FoxyCart, Emma, Raven, and Moontoast logos togetherNashville is a pretty neat place. It's notable of course for its music, publishing, and healthcare industries. However Nashville has been making quite a name for itself as a technology town. Recently named separately as one of the best cities for startupstech jobs, and as a city of the future, Nashville's star is certainly rising.

A tech town is only as good as it's companies, of course. And today we want to highlight a handful of those that glowingly represent our city and are models and inspirations to us here at Sitemason. Read more...

Come to Live on the Green!

Overhead night time view of Live on the Green 2011

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!

Heroes In Our Community

Imaginary heroes possess super human powers, wear exotic costumes and save the world from crafty villains who have developed elaborate plots to take over the world for their own selfish interests. When you were young, how often did you pretend to be a caped crusader, tasked to rid the world of some sinister force that was unleashed through the elaborate, dastardly plot of an evil genius? 

Well, we have heroes at Sitemason and, while we can’t attest to their secret powers or any enhanced accoutrements to their wardrobes, we believe they are making the world a better place through their efforts as non-profits. Please read on to learn about the organizations that inspire us. 

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...
