Interview with the creator of CSSEdit 2

22 comments 2006 at 01.57 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

One of the reasons I was attracted to CSSEdit was its gorgeous interface. Jan Van Boghout isn’t only a talented developer but a great designer as well. I’m sure many people don’t realize, but Jan designs every element himself. Just look at MacRabbit’s new website, the icons etc. and I think you’ll agree it’s topnotch. High time we sat down with Jan to ask him a few questions about this new release…

Defining the colors you will use can always be daunting, it’s sometimes hard to find perfect complementary colors. There are a lot of web-hosted applications out there that can help you with that. If you want an overview of some of the better ones you can find it on my link page. A new kid on the block is “Kuler” from power house Adobe.

Belgium isn’t exactly the Mecca for great software development but since a few years I’ve been a fan of MacRabbit’s CSSEdit, a pretty cool app for visual editing CSS, designed and developed by Jan Van Boghout. Almost 2 weeks ago version 2.0 was released and I had the pleasure of beta testing this little gem the last few months.

Speaking at Web Directions North

I’m just starting to settle in in our new place and the next exciting adventure already comes knocking at my doorstep. One of the countries that has always been on my to-go list is Canada, the world’s second biggest country with its 24 thousand kilometers coastline. Its great nature is one of the reasons I want to visit it. Now I have another, it’s called “Web directions North”.

A few days ago I learned about Joe Clark’s ambitious plans. Joe is an accessibility expert from Canada and his idea is a big one! Joe would like to write a standard for captioning and dubbing, develop training courses for those and last but not least design and create new fonts specifically for captioning. It’s called the “Open & Closed Project”

Today’s topic has been on my mind on several occasions but I always postponed writing about it. Something that happened on Saturday triggered this again. It’s an example out of the real world. One of those things that is on our to-do list is some new office/house furniture. So we visited a design shop and after some looking around we kinda found some great ideas. Before making a final decision we thought it would be a great idea to have some interior advice to see if all fits well in the available space.

How to fix broken URLs in ExpressionEngine

12 comments 2006 at 08.08 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

First of all, I’m back! The move went well. However, it’s a bit chaotic here. A lot of boxes still need to be unpacked. I tell ya this takes more then a Spring cleaning :) I’ve gathered too much stuff over the past 12 years. Oh well, at least I am connected already :) I thought this was a good moment to share a small but useful EE tip. Before ExpressionEngine version 1.5 there was this problem when people didn’t enter the full URL of an article page, EE loaded a rather messy page. Since 1.5 it’s easy to make sure all broken URLs don’t get a 404 error page or a messy page.
