Its been bugging me for a couple of weeks that certain clients were not able to upload certian file types. I blamed my Hosts, Herat, they said ti wasn’t them, my theme, bad code… but it turns out it is WordPress itself.
“This issue affects more than just Word documents as initially reported. This ticket can be used to track related issues with all non-image files failing to load after 4.7.1 with an error message of Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.”

Well, right in the thick of the new year rush to update websites at the moment. Which is of course good for business but less good for the hairline.
Responsive is still the thing, though i am still not convinced that it should always be ‘the thing’. I suspect some websites would be better served by a desktop site and a mobile version (thanks to WPTouch for the WordPress plugin.
And as for Responsive templates. I still like the plain Genesis theme to build on. Though all these many Live Composer, Virtual Composer plugins do make for interesting times, though not clients are going to find them easy. With that in mind this Divi theme seems pretty easy and nice. I do worry about the speed of responsive web sites though. they can be slow.
Which takes me to Symfony, Bootstrap 3 and the whole custom backend and custom front end. Not an easy thing to get one’s head around – and the benefits?? tying in your customer to expensive edits and expensive new designer / programmers?? I had a long document rom school recently saying it did not want a custom backend – i had to use WordPress. that was refreshing . You can take a wordpress site to anyone and they will be able to help/host etc.. But custommade…
So. Here i am hopefully coming to the end of my first custommade site and i am very much looking forward to it being over.

I haven’t updated my own site since 2004 (and thats a guess, i really have no idea. ) So, i will be tweaking this as i discover more things to do with Resposive web site design and build. But i do think the importnat thing is to start down the road of Responsive sites.

UNION gallery – lovely bunch. Since made many sites for scottish artists through the folk at the Union Gallery.
Dermalclinic – second redesign for them. Still a static html site.
The Home Cinema Centre – rebuilt in Expression Engines with Ecommerce. A big site that would handle thousands of products and enquiries. And stayed secure throughout its life. I really liked expression engine and the way you the builder could write every bit of code on the site. It made SEO really easy. And very stable.
Part of the Zest Zest Health & Beauty Beauty salons in Edinburgh. Since rebuilt in Wordpress and changed to Zest Skin Spa

DTR Services – Driver training. Another site for Dalkeith Transport. Moved away to a different designer and then cam back. Now updated to a WordPress site
Borderbeads Necklaces – sadly you never know when a new business will succeed or not. I think its always worth trying myself. Its always better to be hopeful.
Leith Benevolent Association. Charity in Leith, Edinburgh
Ink Boutique Knitwear. The second version of the knitwear site.
Gazelle Furniture. Furniture Makers in Edinburgh. Still make sites for them. I think 5 now?
The Home Cinema Centre. First version of this site was a large static html ecommerce site. Bit of a nightmare to add new products to but worked well in search engines. Later remade using Expression Engine 9as the only system at that time i trusted to make a decent SEO’d site – mainly as with Expression Engine you write your own page code. Really good system, once built.
H2O Car & Vehicle & Fleet Valeting.
Galgani Hospitality Consulting – to the hospitality industry. Want to buy a hotel? Very nice guy. Done 3 sites for him over the years (more if you include the hotel group he worked with before going solo).
Holyrood Park Apartment. Another site for this client and another holiday home site.
Greensills were, i think, a flower shop. Pretty site i always thought. Good Photos really help.

Swim Edinburgh web site was built for the City of Edinburgh Swimming Club with various database archives of performances and competitions.
Built and looked after this site for many years until it became part of a website of larger group of hotels.
Bookcases Direct – i still make websites for this business.
Grange Communications sold calendars. I build their first 2 sites before they took it all inhouse.
Southside Guest House, Edinburgh. Franco has a very popular Guest house and B&B in Edinburgh. He also updates it himself regularly, in different langauges. He also had it made long before other places got their internet act together. Thats why it does so well in search engines – and why i still get enquiries from similar businesses in Edinburgh.
I’ve rebuilt this site a few times over the years. Freight / Transport company in Dalkeith.
Irving Cabinetmakers. Over the years i have remade this web site a few times. They change their names quite often but always stay making bespoke furniture and rooms all over Edinburgh & Scotland
E4PavementsSigns – then we split up the content of Edmonds in to different sections – this one wa for – you’ve guessed it – pavement signs.
Lenticular Graphics suddenly became all the rage, so we buyilt a site for that as well as part of the Edmonds online empire.
Devlin Jones Bathrooms.
We did a look of work with British Trust Hotels back then and built a few sites for them, including Sundays’ favourites Easybreaks.
Following on from the Edmonds website we built this site. ‘Two bites of the cherry’ the boss would say. And it worked well. It was also the first time that we realised how upset the competition were when they copied the entire site and rebranded it for their own use!
Ink Boutique, designer knitwear and armwarmers. Used Mals Ecommerce and Paypal. Successful little shop, still going.
This was my first really successful site. We beat the opposition printers, and The Drum pointed out that we had the biggest web presence of all the Advertising Agencies in Scotland – with a staff of about 5. I had this page about Advertising Agencies that mentioned lots of Scottish agency names (who were they? Blue?? i can’t remember) anyway, when you did a search for their names this page came top. They all had Flash sites! – chumps. Anyway, we rebuilt the site a few times over the next couple of years then sadly it got forgotten in about 2009. Its still going but…
They did research into your family history.
My first site for some friends. They used it for quite a few years before selling up. Not much of a looker but it worked.
