Internet Explorer Fix that will save you agony

April 27, 2011 in WebDesign1, WebDesign2

I came across this in my frustration with the way IE9 was displaying my website.  It was ignoring a lot of my CSS3 features (rounded corners, shadows…) and some other CSS.  It turns out IE8/9 are set automatically in “Compatibility Mode” that will go backwards to IE7 and ignore some of your CSS. 

 To avoid this annoyance, all you have to do is add a meta tag that specifies the mode for IE8/9 –
< meta content=”IE=edge” http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” />
which translates to “use latest version without any compatibility mode”
See for tons of detail (not really necessary to read).

Review of MojoMotor

April 3, 2011 in WebDesign2

Here I’m writing about another CMS system inside of an installation of wordpress. But MojoMotor by Ellislab truly has it’s place within the industry. It is super simple for clients to update and add content to.
It is dynamic in text editing because MojoMotor doesn’t kick the user out of the content and into an admin system. All editing by the client is within the page itself. The learning curve for a developer is not bad if you have used other systems in the past and have an idea of how PHP works.
I would like it if it had a built in one botton backup system for clients to use, simple photo gallery included, and contact form. However all of these can be added with some inexpensive plugins.

All in all, MojoMotor is a great simple CMS system.
