Monthly Subscription Price Changes

January 26, 2011
Chadwick Meyer
We don't say it enough, but I want you to know we are very grateful for your loyal support of Gutensite over the years. You make our world go around. Through these recent economic hard times, we've labored to keep our costs low so that Gutensite could be affordable to even the smallest business and organization. And we're proud of the fact that we've been able to tailor packages that fit every budget. We plan on continuing this commitment, while still finding ways to innovate and make improvements to the CMS for the benefit of ...

Park Circa is Redefining Neighborhood Parking

January 21, 2011
Chadwick Meyer
A new App launched today called Park Circa, which will redefine neighborhood parking in urban areas. Not a day goes by in a city like San Francisco where anyone who owns a car doesn't think about parking. Everywhere you go, everything you do, parking is a consideration. There are simply not enough spaces for everyone... at least that's what we think when we accept the status quo. But overnight, factors change and suddenly new possibilities open up. A few months ago I blogged about this concept of rethinking outside the box. Park Circa has ...

Billing Rate Changes for Custom Work

January 20, 2011
Chadwick Meyer
We've tried for many years to keep our billing rate as affordable as possible. But despite our low overhead and efficient processes, it has become clear that our current billing rates are not a realistic reflection of the costs for paying a competitive salary for the excellent work our team does. When we were just a small design firm with the two co-founders doing all the design and programming work for a combined, below-market-value salary (in exchange for the long term promise of profit from the business), we could squeak by on peanuts. But ...

Google's Licensing Wars over MP4 and WebM

January 20, 2011
Chadwick Meyer
Oh Joy, let the licensing wars begin. You may be wondering how Google Chrome's recent decision to abandon MP4 affects us? No one knows. Chrome is still a small percent of the browser market, but we would still like to support Chrome if we can. However, there is not a good alternative to MP4 that has universal support, so web developers' options are limited. Their WebM format will not play on mobile devices yet, so unless a site offers both MP4 and WebM formats, mobile browsers won't be able to play the videos! Unfortunately it is not cost ...

New Multimedia Player with HMTL5 Support for Mobile Devices

January 10, 2011
Chadwick Meyer
We just completed a total overhaul to our Audio and Video players so that they now take advantage of built in HTML5 support for audio and video. This makes our player compatible with all modern web browsers, including mobile devices like iPhone, iPad, Android, etc. For older browsers like Internet Explorer 8 (which does not support HTML5 video), and Firefox (which supports HTML5 video but is not licensed to play the MP4 format yet), we will still provide the old Flash audio/video player (but with a new skin), so your visitors will not lose ...

Truncating Text

January 07, 2011
Chadwick Meyer
We've improved our algorithm for truncating text. There is always the danger that the preview version of the text you are shortening may have HTML in it, and if we simply truncate after X characters it can break the HTML (sometimes with ugly consequences). We had an imperfect work around for a while (that would strip the HTML in those cases just to be safe), but that meant sometimes the preview wouldn't have desired styling. So we just upgraded the function so that it detects and closes the HTML tags so that they are no longer broken. Nice ...
