For the last year or so I’ve been working on a big corporate site using Hugo. The advantage of using a static site generator over something like WordPress is that you end up with a bunch of pages that you put on any server you want – minimal security risks through login pages etc – and a speedier site. That’s the theory anyway – there are several workarounds required in various place, but it does just about everything you could want a site to do....More Information
A client of mine over at www.teachchildrenmeditation.com was having issues with an uploaded mp3 on a blog post. The issue is quite a technical post for me so it’s for any fellow WP users out there rather than the average client! The problem was that the mp3 worked fine on all desktop browsers that I could test and even on my android phone but it had a couple of quirks on iOS. The duration of the mp3 was shown as NaN:NaN on the embedded player The mp3 would loop back to the start after approx 2mins 30seconds. Turns out that the way iOS handles things is slightly different to other browsers and it means it can’t work out how long the mp3 lasts. Now this can be down to 1 of (or probably both of ) 2 reasons Access-Range – best explained in this post https://forums.cpanel.net/threads/how-can-we-enable-byte-range-requests.289232/ File redirection – htaccess being used to serve the file up from location X while the browser thinks it’s in location Y Turns out that because I use...More Information
I’ve been working on some new graphs for Teach Children Meditation and have come up with some nifty solutions for some issues. Instead of just boring old input boxes for setting some values the user gets to slide sliders (ed – what else would you do with a slider?). The values are stored and a pretty Polar Area Graph is generated to be printed out or saved so the user can see how they improve their scores between the start and end of the online...More Information
I came to Bruce having tried and failed to create a website on my own. The previous company I had engaged had also let me down badly. Bruce made the whole process so simple, easy to understand and straight forward. He was incredibly patient and happy to explain anything I wasn’t sure of. He was prompt with responses to requests and always made himself available when I needed help. I will continue to use Bruce any time I need to update my website, because I found him so easy to work with. Thankyou Bruce!

I have been working with Bruce since I set up my own small business in 2008 – he set up my original website and has updated and developed it for me ever since. From the start he took time to understood what I needed for my client audience, and has been very responsive to my website needs every six months. From my non-techie perspective, he seems technically brilliant!

I have worked with bruce for nearly 10 years now – he’s developed a few websites for me and helped me take my courses online which has brought me a worldwide presence (and marketplace). He knows his stuff and is really reasonably priced. I run a small business so cost is important to me and I know Bruce will always give me the most cost effective options.
