    Posted 13 November 2014 12:00 AM by Brad Smith, Commercial Director @ ClearPeople

    6 reasons why in 2014 this isn’t a great idea! I’ve noticed that a lot of businesses I talk to about their website and intranet development projects work with ‘agencies’ who deliver solutions built on a content management system that they have developed themselves.  It got me thinking about the pros and cons of such a relationship, and also about the benefits of working with an agency that is agnostic in its approach to technology.  It may sound a bit unusual...

    SharePoint 2013: Choosing the Right Colours

    Posted 30 June 2014 12:00 AM by Ian Jackson, UX Developer @ ClearPeople

    In front-end development, the first step we take when styling a web site is to focus on the branding (font-sizes, line-heights, margins, and padding of the primary html elements). We also focus on the brand colours, and define them on the base elements so that all child elements will inherit the style. The branding is defined in the CSS, and is generally the first piece of CSS loaded. When test developing SharePoint, we need to approach this process in a different way. Where normally we begin ...

    ClearPeople Sitecore Azure App

    Posted 28 October 2013 12:00 AM by Vicent Galiana, Senior Sitecore Developer @ ClearPeople

    This module integrates within the Sitecore Azure Module 2.0 User Interface, allowing users to access Sitecore logs and windows events stored on Azure Table storage from within Sitecore, and dynamically filter by date range, log level and type. When you use the Module Sitecore Azure 2.0 to move your Sitecore web site to Azure, you lose the log files, and the old log viewer becomes useless. Now, the information is stored in the table WADLogstable, in the table storage. The idea behind this change...

    Testing Mobile Websites

    Posted 6 December 2012 12:00 AM by Mariola Dybas, Project Manager @ ClearPeople

    When we start to plan for a mobile project here at ClearPeople, some of the key questions we ask ourselves are: ‘How do we go about testing mobile websites?’ and ‘How many new devices do we need to test them on??’ The first thing that we do is some quick market research – are there any new devices on the market since our last deployment? Have there been any operating system updates that we should be aware of? Next we select key devices for the project; then fin...

    Is Your Website Flash Content Ready for IE10?

    Posted 15 October 2012 12:00 AM by Vicent Galiana, Senior Sitecore Developer @ ClearPeople

    With the release of Windows 8 nearing and the full release of Internet Explorer 10 imminent, Microsoft has released some information for developers regarding the use of Adobe Flash Player on websites when viewed in the new IE10 desktop and metro versions. Windows 8 and IE 10 will use the same integrated Flash Player – which means users will not need to download and install the Flash Player from Adobe before being able to view content.
