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.
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!
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.
Lets 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!…
Here at Sitemason HQ, we don't amount to much without our partners. Two of our most dearly cherished partnerships are with the immensely talented and award winning McNeely Pigott & Fox and Signal Hill.
Recently we chatted with MP&F's Art Director Brooks Harper and Signal Hill's Principal and Creative Director Daniel Pryfogle to get their thoughts on Sitemason, and why they choose us as their platform of choice...
Dear designers, agencies, and anyone who will listen,
We need your help. Actually, we think you need our help, but we'll get to that in a bit.
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.
Sitemason 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...
For all you developers out there, we upgraded the Sitemason PHP Boilerplate to include all the improved HTML5 goodness over at html5boilerplate.com. Give it a whirl on your next project and let us know how it goes. Read more after the break for a change log.
