At my Media Manager presentation at Tridion Developer Summit a few weeks ago, I showed a trick for resizing your Media Manager videos outside of Media Manager’s outlets.
This morning, I learned that there was a bug with the approach, and this afternoon, I found a fix. Let’s discuss. Read More
A few months ago Robert Curlette invited me to speak at the first ever Tridion Developer Summit. Unfortunately, he only allowed me to pick one topic. Surprise! I chose SDL Media Manager. What I want to do today is provide follow-up to my presentation, as well as links to my presentation, also.
It’s been almost two weeks since the world’s first Tridion Developer Summit. This event was the first of its kind where Tridion developers from around the world had the chance to get together and share what we’re doing and how we do it. It was a bit like the analog version of tridion.stackexchange, but without anyone downvoting answers. First I’ll offer a short review of the summit, and then some follow up thoughts on the content of the sessions that I attended.
In a previous post, I talked about some general better practices for writing jQuery plugins that will play nicely in content management systems. Today, I’d like to introduce one such plugin:

So, it’s a tad overdue, but I’d like to briefly mention something that happened about a month ago. I got this super neat email from Nuno Linhares, who works at SDL.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’ve been working with Media Manager pretty heavily these last few months. One thing that I’ve noticed is that there’s no real jQuery plugins out there to assist with embedding Media Manager videos. Well, that’s no longer the case! Read More
For the last few months, I’ve been doing a substantial amount of front-end work on SDL’s Media Manager tool. While you can find a pretty decent amount of information on Tridion via blogs and stack exchange, you won’t find much on Media Manager. Let’s start by introducing outlets.
So, not too long ago I had the opportunity to sit down with Miguel Miguelez and Nuno Linhares, both from SDL. Over the course of one or several beers, we discussed the Frenchness of the French, super awesome tattoo ideas, and content injection. And we came up with an idea which I’d like to share. Read More
In the last year or so, “Responsive Design” has become quite the buzzword. It’s not just industry jargon or a little article on A List Apart anymore. Project managers, business analysts, salesmen and marketing executives are tossing around the term “Responsive Design”. Heck, a year ago I was explaining the concept to an executive, and now executives are asking for it by name. I’ve even heard of executives asking where the “Responsify” button is in Tridion. Now that Responsive Design has become a buzzword, I’m seeing its meaning and intent get distorted. So, I’d like to offer a gentle “realignment” of where “Responsive Design” fits in the web experience. Read More
