I recently contacted the MP for Gloucester, Mr Richard Graham, with regards to hearing his thoughts on the recent proposals by the government to introduce ISP level filtering for everyone in the UK. We shared a few emails… but not “email ping pong”
Transactional email services are hot news right now and with good reason. Using a Transactional email service means your site or server doesn’t have to do the heavy lifting and you’ve got a place to go when your client says that “email isn’t working”. Here’s a quick guide to setting up your ExpressionEngine web site to use Mandrill – a great, very low cost, transactional email service from the people that do Mailchimp.
I have seen talk that Responsive Web Design means you are making a stripped down, “My first website” for use on mobile devices. I disagree and here’s why.
I recently put a new ExpressionEngine site live which featured a search facility that returned results based on multiple category selections. To do this without using a third-party add-on such as Super Search I had to create a little work-around. To be honest, I didn’t think much of this as it seemed quite straightforward but a number of people have asked me how I did it so I thought I would share the information here – mainly because I’m likely to forget an need to do it again at some point.
