In a previous post, I mentioned the SDL Tridion MVP retreat, and that front-end is going to become a really big deal in the world of Tridion. Today, I would like to briefly discuss what I meant by that. (Briefly means “under 1000 words”). What it amounts to is an amazing project by Bart Koopman and Will

  All the way back in Febuary Ferbruary Febfruary the second month of this year, I wrote about how I’d been nominated for this really cool award, the SDL Tridion Most Valued Professional award. Also known as the Tridion MVP award. It was a really, really  cool honor to have been nominated, and I got all

Last week I was hit with a small challenge of fixing a snippet of code that fixed a problem with a third party application called Media Manager. It  does some pretty nifty things with videos — but it also injects a <style> into the <body>. Because it does that, I had a challenge in changing the dimensions
