A web poll is a useful way of gathering opinions from your site users. It is also one of the most trivial pieces of web functionality that you could write.A friend who is a java developer and has never really used .net or Umbraco wanted to see a real world example, so I put this together for him real quick (he was impressed).http://darren-fergusoncom.site.securepod.com/development/polldemo.aspxI’ll look at releasing a package at some point. It is implemented as a Macro that takes a question and a delimited set of answers as parameters.
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... 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... that isn't really in WCM
scope?Any tips for structuring the document?How to get the developer to write up the steps performed so you
could browse their evaluations to support your CMS selection.

Everyone knows about Firebug right? If not and you are a web developer, you are missing out and making your life much harder!Yslow is an add-on for firebug that analyses the download time of a webpage and gives you tips on how to improve. Test results are graded A-F and displayed in a very simple format. You can click on each test which takes you to a Yahoo page explaining the test in detail and the steps that can be taken to get a better grade and ultimately better page performance.Foxmarks... my productivity. Twitterfox – A Twitter client that sits in your browser bar displaying the number of unread Tweets. Clicking the icon opens up the UI overlaying the current web page that you are browsing. The UI allows you to do all the basic
some of the tooling and debugging techinques at the same time.
At the time of writing JSON validation isn't part of Visual Studio without the web essentials plugin and even if you have this you still need to associate the .manifest file extension to get JSON validation working.
From teaching the Umbraco course we learned that when a property editor doesn't work there are a few common causes and frustratingly each is diagnosed by the developer in a different way:
Invalid package manifest - Check... is to put a hard stop in place when there is a fundamental problem with the property editor (or dashboard). I think that when a developer is learning how to extend Umbraco for the first time, getting hung up on mis-spellings, missing quotes and semi
when developing web
applications:Don't modify data in get requests.Keep Sessions short.Don't use a remember me function (either as a user or
developer).Don't let your pages be loaded into iFrames - use frame busting
page layouts, though as Elliott Kember points out - in a rather long
winded blog post - it can be dangerous in the wrong hands.

This post should be subtitled "or stop moaning".As a pre-cursor to the main content of my post a note to CSS
developers. Be careful what you set your heart upon.
If IE6 was banished/killed/gone what would differentiate you from
any other web developer? If anyone could pick up a manual and learn
CSS, and all browsers rendered your markup exactly as intended
would that not render your x years of experience redundant?
Wouldn't the market become saturated with talentless newbies who
could... such time that you've communicated to
your customer your EOL plan. If you've never supported IE6 or are
some gimmicky web 2.0 site then I guess it is your call.Now for #3. We've seen a series of sites recently such as I dropped IE6, IE6 Update, IE6
employee - she takes care of the books and lots of other admin
tasks - this isn't income shifting she actually has a full time
job. Employee #3 is a full time developer unlike myself he isn't
into blogging, social media and developer communities... needs
updating and expanding upon a little.
We do web - applications and content. We are very good at
Interwoven (Autonomy) content management products and Umbraco. If
these technologies won't contain your application we'll work with
ASP.net or (PHP or Perl if you want) to create something that does.
Good quality graphic design and user experiences are very important
Here are some reasons that you should work with us:
1. 15 years experience. We've been building the web
appropriate folders under the Umbraco web root. A little digging
around suggests that the place to put CSS files is in
~/Content/Styles so I drop my CSS files... realise that by modifying the
default Layout I've trashed the out of the box example layout, but
luckily I can now just go and install a clean copy of Version 5
matrix to use as a reference alongside the site that I am
building... but standardising on the
Microsoft supported stack gives the developer a fantastic
experience when using Visual Studio. It also means when inheriting
or supporting legacy sites that you don't unwrap the box to find
out that you need to hire
There was a very good web chat yesterday about the Umbraco 3.0 package repository.
Details are here. http://www.umbraco.org/10722.aspx
The screencast below demonstrates
Dashboard Prevalue editor - a simple Umbraco package that I
released on our.umbraco.org.
The idea behind this package is that you'd use it to allow
content editors to control PreValue lists. You don't want to expose
them to the developer section so you can just place the datatypes
you'd like them to be able to edit on the Umbraco dashboard in
whichever section you'd like.
The UI is also a little simpler than the regular prevalue editor
you just "type and tab". Each time you hit tab a new PreValue is
I also use this package as a developer during initial content
