After several months waiting for approval the Intro website is live.
Umbraco feeds XML to a flash front end build by
web maestro Rich Salter.
Site design was done internally by Intro.
Believe it or not, despite all of my interest in Umbraco, this
is my first site to go live other than my own domain!
A while back I posted a
Poll macro for Umbraco. There was a reasonable amount of
interest, so I posted the source.
As the original post says, this was just a very quick demo and I
thought that the method of storing responses would need
Niels posted a link to the
demo on the Umbraco site and
as a result it got several hundred responses which slows down
Umbraco when trying to acess the node where the responses are
stored in the GUI.
This post is just to advise against using this Macro on
production systems until I (or someone else) get the chance to
As you may be aware Umbraco 4 is scheduled for release this Friday. Niels and Per are out in Copenhagen having a few beers to celebrate this milestone. Not wanting to be outdone a few of us over here in London are up for joining the celebrations and indulging in a shandy or two of our own.If you want to come along, add a comment below or tweet with the hashtag #umbraobeerslondon. We’ll only go ahead if there is enough interest (say 6-10 people). With Niels offering to provide a beer or two for us there should be a free pint involved. Venue to be confirmed.Hopefully see you all on Friday.UPDATE: As of 11.30am on Thurs we are Myself, Lesley, Hendy + 1, Billy. If we get to 10 people before 8pm this eve we'll be on @ Bar 101 at 6.30pm
A while back I discussed the desire to have a document that
helped me to evaluate a web content management system from a
developer perspective. A few other people expressed interest in the
idea so I've published a very rough first draft here in case anyone
wishes to collaborate or provide any feedback.The document is intended to be a verbose specification of a
simple website to build in the CMS the functionality of which is
extremely common to most websites. The exercise itself should take
no more than a day and leave a developer with a good feel of how to
perform basic tasks such as create content types and templates. The
simplicity of the exercise is such that I'd expect any reasonable
developer to be able to sit in front

Depending on interest there will be more information to come on maps, including how to display multiple
It isn't often I get frustrated enough to write a ranting blog
post but I've been getting pretty steamed up with some of the
communication I've been getting recently from prospective
clients.I get a fair amount of email each week asking me if I'm
interested in working on a project. Luckily I'm privileged to be
busy right now and I'll usually - politely - decline.
Occasionally, if the project seems of interest and I have the time
to commit to it I'll write back outlining some initial thoughts, my
terms of business and importantly my hourly and day rates.Some may question the fact that I get down to money so quickly,
but I've become quite adept at spotting emails where budget is
likely to cause issues. Many of these emails even
