For seven or eight months, we have been slogging our guts out on two or three vast projects, perhaps the biggest being a major rebuild and redesign for frieze Magazine - Europe’s #1 art magazine.

Ampersands are the new ‘E’s

29th September 2007

Things are so, so busy that I’ve had zero time to continue blogging of late, for which I apologise. New staff, new office, new projects, plus a major new site we just soft-launched (but more about that later, once I’ve ironed out a few things).

The ExpressionEngine team take four giant steps

9th March 2007

It is a very big day for my friends over at what was, until today, called pMachine. Originally named after their initial product (long since put to bed with the growth of ExpressionEngine) they have today been reborn as EllisLab inc, named after the founder Rick, who is modestly not responsible for the decision.

Friday’s Expression Engine snippet

11th November 2006

I’ll end this week with what I think is an utter gem. I’ve been banging on about how Expression Engine isn’t just a blogging tool, it’s a full-on content management / web publishing / whatever we’re supposed to call these things this week system. Problem is, it’s missing one key, critical feature - hierarchical pages. It’s certainly something you can fudge around, using nested categories for the structure, and one weblog entry per category for the pages.

Tuesday’s Expression Engine snippet

7th November 2006

Sometimes I need one of Expression Engine’s features to work for me in a slightly different way, and that’s when I reach for the Query Module. In a nutshell, this module lets you get data from EE’s databases using standard SQL, then make that data available.

7th November 2006

During my tenure as guest author, I’ve not got around to talking about anything other then Expression Engine. So, to continue the trend, here’s a quick snippet of hopefully-useful code for Monday. There’ll be another snippet each day this week.
