Nov 20, 2017 10:00:00 AM Matt
Well sure, ok, maybe we might be slightly biased on this. We are, as it turns out, a consulting firm in the business of selling outsourced programming. Ahem... But, nonetheless, I’ll try to be reasonably fair and balanced here. As a consultancy I think we have, in fact, a unique vantage point on such matters, since we spend each day of our lives straddling both sides of this topic: That is, we ...

When Drupal Is a Good Fit

Oct 23, 2017 9:00:00 AM Brian
Drupal sometimes gets a bad rap for being overly complex, but aren't your site needs also complex? If they aren't, you can stop reading here, skip over WordPress and go straight to Squarespace. If Squarespace can’t cover all your needs, keep reading.

Can My Responsive Website Replace a Mobile App?

Oct 11, 2017 9:03:00 AM Ashday Media Group
Smartphones have had an immense impact on the way we both interact with websites and how they’re built. In the early days of Android and iOS -- or even further back to flip phones that could access the internet -- websites weren’t designed to fit well onto a small screen. Mobile browsers did what they could to make them work, but it really wasn’t all that long ago that you had to double-tap on ...

Can I Get This Site To-Go?

May 6, 2016 7:49:00 PM Mike
This is probably old news at this point, but more and more the preferred method for consuming content is mobile. Whether this means a smartphone, tablet, or some other internet-enabled device, the odds are pretty good that your site will be viewed from something other than a traditional computer. (Although let's be honest, that doesn't really describe anything like it used to either.) Interesting ...

Goodbye Drupal 6

Mar 10, 2016 11:16:00 PM Mike
Security updates and most support, in general, is now gone for Drupal 6. What do you do now? No, it’s okay, don’t panic. There is something that can be done. Although many sites that were running on Drupal 6 have already started the process of migrating to another version of Drupal, not all sites have had the chance for one reason or another.
