So you’re a back-end developer. You write .net or Java all day. You create Schemas and Templates in Tridion. It’s Friday. The front-end developers have signed off early and you just got a high priority bug. And it’s in the CSS. You hate CSS. What do you do?
I had a discussion recently about whether to put CSS into Tridion as multimedia components or code components, and it triggered a really fun discussion. We talked about all of our different strategies and use-cases for managing the CSS in SDL Tridion, and it seems like something that other folks may ask about in the
As I’ve mentioned previously, I recently left Tahzoo and started working at a new company called Content Bloom. Last week was Content Bloom’s global training summit, held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (if that’s a real place). Everyone at the company presented on a topic; it’s a chance for us to all teach each other.
I’ve been working for the last month or two on some super cool mobile templates for a client. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, we’ve pulled out all of the awesome for this. If Tridion were a person, it would be peeing its kilt with excitement every day — even though it definitely isn’t wearing
So, you’re hooked on the idea of using a CSS preprocessor, and you’re thinking of even managing your files in Tridion. Not a bad idea, right? But uploading those binaries into a multimedia schema isn’t as easy as it looks. So what’s a guy to do?
In a previous post that I wrote, I talked about living the web developer’s fantasy of being told, “be as cutting edge as you want”, and how Joe Shirley (a fellow Tahzooligan) and I decided to use all the nice things we could 1. Before I get in to how we used a CSS preprocessor
CSS is so cool and easy! Since it’s not a programming language, anyone can do it! You just need to know the properties and how to write a selector, and the job is done! If you agreed with any of those statements, then this post is for you. CSS is cool, but it isn’t easy.
I’ve said before and I’ll say again that contenteditable is one of the coolest attributes you can apply to an element. This lil’ gem originates from Microsoft, of all places, and has been there since IE5.5. Well, the other browsers caught on a while back, and others, including myself, have demonstrated some cool techniques with
Just this morning I had a small conundrum where I was trying to debug some HTML and CSS that I had written. Specifically, I was trying to figure out where some of my wrappers were, and how some alt and title attributes were behaving. And then I had an epiphany: you can do this with
Working in Content Management System (CMS) implementations has its challenges. While some of those challenges are in the application itself, many can be with the content authors. Content authors expect a certain amount of flexibility in how they can add or remove content on a page and we have to find a way to account
