At this year’s annual Salsa Community Conference we presented to more than 100 people about the importance and “how to” of mobile coding in email, donations, and advocacy forms.
We do a lot of things at Cornershop. Hosting isn’t one of them; it’s best left to companies whose raison d’être is hosting. And by not providing hosting, we have a lot of flexibility when it comes to hosting environments and can provide unbiased advice. We’ve developed some favorites, and also some things we like a host to offer.
Without you, we never would have started Cornershop, and it never would have been as successful as we’ve been thus far. You make it not just possible, but worthwhile.
Email can still be an effective communications tool, though it requires understanding who your constituents are and what they are interested in.
While CSS’s media queries are typically used in service of responsive design, we’ve identified another use for them: embeddable widgets that adapt to the space they’re placed in.
In the past, accommodating different email systems has largely consisted of simply offering an HTML formatted message, and a “plain text” version of the message for those who can’t (or won’t) receive HTML emails. No longer.
Made possible by recent changes in web technology, responsive design allows a website to change its formatting in response to the size of the screen it is being displayed on.
Wireframing is often neglected in the website development process, but it has a huge impact on a site’s success. It’s critical to understand what wireframes are and what role they play.
