September 25, 2014
Chadwick Meyer
For those that pay attention to security issues, we were alerted to the "Shellshock" vulnerability on thursday (9/25/14) and we applied the security update to our server as soon as it became available. So our servers are secure from this vulnerability. This is a huge security event. The bug allows anyone to issue any commands as the Apache web server user (with their permissions). Within a couple hours of the announcement, commercial servers and personal computers around the world were already being scanned for this vulnerability and ...

HTML5 Multimedia Player for Maximum Browser Support Across all Devices

September 17, 2014
Chadwick Meyer
We have updated our multimedia players to rely solely on the browser's built in HTML5 player. This ensures greater compatibility across all browsers and devices, desktop or mobile, and less glitches. Long Time Coming This is a move we initiated several years ago, but at the time we were unable to fully transition to an HTML5 only-player because not all browsers support the HTML5 audio and video tags. What also complicated the transition is that not all browsers support the same media formats. For example, Firefox still doesn't support the ...

New Calendar Event Map

August 15, 2014
Chadwick Meyer
We've released a great new feature for the calendar which lets you turn on a map that sits above the calendar or event list. The map shows the location of each event. The markers are clickable and will either open up the event details in a popup window or go directly to the event details page. This is particularly useful if you have several events spread across the community and you want to help people find the gather that is closest to them (e.g. community groups). This feature is activated by turning on the "Display Map" option on the ...

How to Merge your Business Google Plus Social Page with Local Page

June 18, 2014
Chadwick Meyer
Businesses need to make sure they have taken every step to be found online. This means having a beautiful, SEO optimized website, having a presence on the social media platforms where your customers frequent, and also being listed in appropriate business directories such as Google maps. The problem is, as the online gatekeepers evolve, their recommendations for businesses change. All the time. Recently, I discovered Google had lovingly converted Gutensite's Google Places profile (the old business listing recommendation) into a lonely, ...

Our Response to the Heartbeat Security Flaw

April 08, 2014
Chadwick Meyer
This is probably too geeky for most people, but for the sake of transparency I wanted to let you know what our status is in regards to the recently popularized "Heartbeat" security threat. "Heartbeat" is a flaw in OpenSSL, a protocol that manages the secure connections of the servers that run 2/3 of the websites in the world. Essentially it allows hackers to theoretically view 64KB of the current memory space (that's a lot of data). This random, raw data, but it could contain secure information like passwords and private SSL keys. Lots of ...
