FTP across two websites

Posted 28th February 2011 | Category: Web Development Blog

Recently we built 2 separate websites that used the same CMS (content management system). The problem we had with this is when files were uploaded using the CMS, take images for example, they would upload to the website under which the CMS resided. Therefore the images could not be accessed by the second website.

Interactive timeline

We recently developed a project timeline for one of our clients that allows users to quickly browse a timeline display with advanced capabilities.

SagePay iFrame integration

Posted 25th February 2011 | Category: Web Development Blog

We have set up a number of websites over the years that take payments through the site using a third party to process the credit card information. A common third party supplier is SagePay (formerly Protx), who process the shopping basket or other payment items the website passes through. This involved send through the information from the website to secure pages on the SagePay website. The down side to this is although you could apply basic styling to these pages, they would always look very different to your website. What you are able to do now is embed an iFrame into your website to load up the SagePay credit card forms, passing in the same information and process the details in the same way. The advantage to this is the customer remains on your site and as you are able to style the SagePay forms so they can blend seamlessly into your site.

Mootools and Ajax features

Posted 24th February 2011 | Category: Web Design Blog

Ajax is a method used in web applications to enable the retrieval of data from a server asynchronously in the background without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page. This can be extremely useful in web software as it allows the user to interact with a web page without the page having to reload.

What is a domain?

Put simply a web domain forms the main part of your websites address or URL.
