Re: Form Spam

The normal captcha seems to work on for me - for the sites that have it. Adding it back to the ones that don't to cut down on spam. As an alternative - I wonder if it is possible to add a field that is hidden from the user but is set up to "require" that the field be empty. So if a robot tries to fi...

Re: Directory of Designers / Developers / SEO Specialists / Theme Builders / Extension Builders etc. here

As admins I'll let you guys discuss how you want it run but in considering your questions but not wanting to make it complicated perhaps let the admin control it - ie leave it locked and if someone wants to be added to the list they can send an email to the admin to have their name added - assuming ...

Re: Directory of Designers / Developers / SEO Specialists / Theme Builders / Extension Builders etc. here

BF - Is it an admin that should do this or since I brought it up, should I just do it? I don't mind but I don't have everyone's website address and I don't want to step on toes. Again the idea was to keep it updated on a regular basis as new designers say #metoo. Let me know what you want me to do w...

Re: Browser Cache

Good idea. I'll try this also.
However - I am curious how does not affect the site speed score in regards to "leverage browser cache"?

Re: Web designer recommendations?

We should keep this list updated as web designers want to add their name to the list. Perhaps add their website address next to their name? I can think of a name or two to be added. Perhaps separate the designers from the developers (templates / extensions / custom code etc.) from the seo specialist...

Re: Hiding page name following site URL

Ok. I was also given this code to put in the htaccess file: RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^/about/ /about.html Redirect 301 /about.html /about/ Seems everyone (each "generator") has a different way to accomplishing this. Thoughts on the best way? Also, if I am using redirects from nonww...

Re: Redesign of my existing site

Is there anyway to optimizes the images in both size and compression? IE - if the image is 4000+px wide, I think you can get away with it being a bit smaller and them compress it before uploading it. Site speed is really slow according to GT Metrix as well as Google Page Speed. Otherwise, looks real...

Mail Engine in the Contact Form

If I may, I have heard of some hosts having issues sending emails via a php contact form to a generic email address such as gmail, Hotmail, etc. However, if one changes the mail engine via the "advanced" button at the bottom of the general tab and under the "mail engine" tab (change to smtp) it seem...

Re: Imbedding a Device Friendly Video

If I may, I think another upside to YouTube, other than the obvious that the very heavy video is hosted on YouTube servers (reduces weight on your own server right?, is that YouTube can also be thought of as another social media channel for seo purposes. Pop in your keywords and it is possible for t...

Re: [rz] Inner Border

I haven't had time to look into it seriously but I've often wanted to find an easy way to add an inner shadow to an image (standalone, slideshow, rollover text, or inside a layer) as opposed to a drop shadow. Not sure if its reasonable with todays UX and design standards but I've always liked the lo...
