Why We Chose Pantheon as Our Partner

Posted by Steve Kenley on Jun 26, 2015 9:15:14 AM


All our sites are built with best-practice workflows on Pantheon. Here’s why you should keep it there.

Pantheon ensures your website will continue to perform at high speeds, with minimal need for support. The platform automatically does much of the work required to keep professional-grade Drupal sites fast, secure, and scalable.

Squeeze More ROI from Your Investment

Every dollar you spend on web development should contribute to the growth of your business. Using open-source CMS like Drupal brings you closer to that goal, as developers don't need to start from scratch. However, they must still spend many hours on system administration. Pantheon allows you to funnel 100% of your investment in web development directly to the high-value features and strategy that grow your business. And not just while your website is in development, but for its entire lifetime. 

Software Updates! Don't Be Afraid of Them

Posted by Duncan Laney on Jun 3, 2015 10:24:52 AM


Working in the tech support industry, I've worked with everyone from the super tech savvy to the computer illiterate. One thing I've noticed with people of all skill levels is that many people are afraid to update software, hardware, firmware, etc. You name it; they don't want to do it. Here, I will share with you why you should update and some best practices.  

Updates: They Won't Hurt You

A leading reason for update aversion is fear. I have heard so many stories from noob users and power users both, who have had an update go bad, and now they are nervous about updating anything.  Don't let one bad experience ruin the beautiful world of updates.  

What to Expect From Your Web Forms

Posted by Steve Kenley on May 27, 2015 9:00:00 AM


Web forms on your website can be very helpful tools. They can be used to gather data about potential customers, or give current customers a convenient option to ask for help. On the other hand, they can be the source of some inconveniences as well. Spam is an ever-increasing problem, and having web forms on your site is an invitation to spammers everywhere to fill your inboxes with garbage.

What is a Spambot?

A spambot is an automated computer program designed to assist in the sending of spam emails or populate website forms. These programs continue to get more intelligent and now people have become a big part of spamming in recent years. Where there is cheap labor, people can be hired at an extremely low cost to do nothing but fill out forms and send emails.

Don't Use Internet Explorer... Ever

Posted by Duncan Laney on May 6, 2015 11:05:40 AM


In my last blog I mentioned that you should not use Internet Explorer....ever.  As far as browsers go, there are worse options than IE, but no one uses those. Internet Explorer doesn't have as many extension or add-ons as other browsers like Chrome or Firefox. Also, Internet Explorer (IE) does not receive updates as frequently. Meaning, if you have a sweet new feature or moving graphics on your website, even if your IE is totally up to date, the new feature/moving image may not display or work correctly.  

Adding an Image to Your Drupal Site

Posted by Duncan Laney on Mar 18, 2015 9:19:00 AM


Wecome back to another Drupal 7 FAQ support tip. In the last blog post, I mapped out how you can fix broken links in your website. Now I'll walk you through now to add images to your site. It's quite simple as you will see.  

Adding An Image

Adding an image to a page is similar to adding a link, with a few differences.  

    • Log into your site, then go to the page where the link in question lives.
    • Click the edit tab at the top of the page, and this will take you to a screen that allows you to edit the page content.
    • Then click in the content where you would like the image to be placed.
