rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


The "Be Sure" Module Checks Drupal SEO

This week, an OSTraining member asked us about optimizing their Drupal 8 site.  We have recommended some modules before, including the SEO Checklist module. However, there’s an interesting option in Drupal 8, called the “Be Sure” module. I’m going to explain how you can use Be Sure. Source: https://www.ostraining.com/

Acquia a leader in 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management

This week Acquia was named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management. We’re quite excited about it at Acquia as it’s the third year in a row that we received this recognition from Gartner. Organizations planning large WCM deployments rely on reports such as the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management to give them a comprehensive view of the competitive landscape. Acquia’s strong placement will cause many organizations to give Drupal a closer look for their content management projects. Acquia is the only open source company included among the six leaders, and as CMSWire’s Dom Nicastro reported, “Acquia made the biggest positive move” of all the solutions ranked in Gartner’s report. What I found especially interesting in this year’s report was their observation that the WCM market is beginning to split in two subcategories: the first subcategory treats the web as an ever more important…

Choosing the Best Host for Drupal 8

At OSTraining we often get asked to help our clients make the right choice for Drupal hosting. You may often hear that Drupal hosting is expensive, but there are some very reliable and affordable options available. For Drupal 8 you will need a host that is running the latest stable releases.

How Amazon, Expedia and the QVC Convert Every Last Visitor (And How You Can Too)

Don’t listen to what people say. Watch what they do. Ramit talks a lot. But his actions, and his emails, are where the value lies. Similarly, you shouldn’t just read the ConversionXL’s when you’re trying to come up with ways to get your landing pages to convert better. Instead, you should just go visit the top performing websites, like Amazon, Expedia, or (surprisingly) the QVC. Start browsing, shopping, and going through their checkout funnels. It’ll quickly become apparent why they’re good, and how you might be able to adapt the same approaches to your own site and pages. Here’s how to convert like Amazon, Expedia and the QVC. Four Conversion-Boosting Site Elements: Friction, Scarcity, Personalization and Motivation You can immediately spot the difference between a website that was designed by people with a print vs. digital background. The print was is beautiful, no doubt. Pixel-perfect probably. Where it quickly falls apart,…

Andrew Short and Neuroplasticity

Mental health is a big issue and concern of mine, not just for myself but for all those whom I work with and for. And, I’m glad that it’s become a bigger part of the conversation in the professional world as more people realize that it’s as important as any other type of “health” out there. And, I’m increasingly encouraged with the continued scientific progress and growth in areas related to the brain and our ability to overcome obstacles that were once thought impossible. How quickly we can discount ourselves and others when we believe faulty science (or out-of-date perspectives). The story of Andrew Short is very encouraging: You see, I have to believe, especially for myself, that the brain is malleable, that it’s fundamentally fluid, that it can (and will) still learn to do things differently, even though it might be incredibly difficult. In fact, I’ve seen this in…

text-spinners

A clever idea for text-based spinners in CSS. You set the “keyframes” in the content, and cycle through them by moving the line of text to the left in the actual keyframes. <button>Loading <span class=”loading”></span></button> .loading.bar2::after { content: “▁A▂A▃A▄A▅A▆A▇A█”; animation: spin8 2s steps(8) infinite alternate; } @keyframes spin8 { to { transform: translateY(-12.0em); } } This is a whole repo of them by Max Beier. I’ve isolated one of them here: See the Pen text-spinners by Chris Coyier (@chriscoyier) on CodePen. Direct Link to Article — Permalink text-spinners is a post from CSS-Tricks Source: CssTricks

Choreographer-js

A new animation library by Christine Cha: A simple library to take care of complex CSS animations. You define the animations through its JavaScript API and execute them via DOM events, then the animation is done through applying inline CSS. Seems to me it’s not so much for helping build complex CSS animations, but for doing animations through CSS that you can’t otherwise do, because you can’t get things like mouse or scroll position in CSS.
