Tips and Tricks

Demystifying Universal Analytics
Google recently unveiled Universal Analytics, the next version of their widely utilized web traffic analysis software. This article will walk through upgrading to Universal Analytics, which, according to Google's Help documentation, "offers a new set of features that change the way data is collected and organized in your Google Analytics account, so you can get a better understanding of how visitors interact with your online content."
Optimizing Site Speed
When we build and maintain web sites, we need to be cognizant of users' technology capabilities, as well as their limitations, and plan accordingly. Algonquin's Web Development Manager Mike Spencer walks through some helpful tips to keep your site light and speedy.
How to See the Entire Image Properties Box
This tip really applies to any element of QuantumCMS where you want more screen real estate. However, with the recent upgrade to QuantumCMS some users on smaller screens have noticed that the Image Properties box in the WYSIWYG editor is partially hidden off-screen, meaning they cannot get to the OK or Cancel buttons.
Moving Off-screen Windows Back into View on Windows 7
Occasionally when using QuantumCMS, or any web site or application that pops open new windows or dialogs, you notice that new windows aren't visible to you. This is typically because the window has opened off-screen.
Custom Form Builder Features Overview
During the last user group session I covered the Custom Form Builder for a bit. If you have attended the user groups, you might recognize this as a recurring topic.
Why Can't I Just Reply to Form Submissions?
If you've used the Custom Form Builder that's part of QuantumCMS then you may have asked youself, or one of our support team, this very question.
Time to Update Your Web Site Copyright Date
It's that time of the year where you should take a few minutes to log in to QuantumCMS and update the copyright date on your web site. If you don't remember where it is, for most of our clients it's a Site Property that you can edit.
Google Analytics: Weighted Sort
Google has modified the way Analytics works to allow users to adjust how items in reports are sorted.
Maximize Your Workspace in QuantumCMS
If you want to get the most out of your screen real estate, there are a few techniques to keep in mind that may help improve your experience.
Adding a Page Alias
An Alias is an alternate URL for a page on your web site. You can create an Alias for the old address of a page that has been moved so users will be redirected if they attempt to access the old address.
Adding Google Analytics to Your Site
Disabling Pop-up Blockers
QuantumCMS makes use of Pop-up windows for various tasks. Make sure that all Pop-up blockers are disabled before authoring.
Pasting Options
Inserting Hyperlinks
Steps for adding hyperlinks to your content within QuantumCMS.
Inserting Images
Steps for adding images to your content within QuantumCMS.
Previewing a Page and Checking Updates
While authoring content on a page in QuantumCMS, you may find the need to check your updates on the public web site.
Paragraphs vs Single Line Breaks
Pressing the ENTER key within the content editor in QuantumCMS will result in a new paragraph....
Why Aren't My Changes Showing Up?
Have you ever made an update to a page in QuantumCMS, saved it, and checked it on the public site, only to find that your changes aren't showing up?
SEO Spammers Using Your Contact From
If your site has a contact form, then odds are you have gotten at least one submission from someone offering his or her search engine optimization (SEO) services. Some of our clients get many. I received this note this morning:
Verified: Google Ignores Meta Keywords
Just over a year ago I reported on my blog that Google had finally verified that it ignores the meta tags of pages when calculating rank. I failed to post it here so that you could all benefit. While we in the profession knew this for quite some time, and also know that none of the other search engines use them, either we often find clients being wooed by SEO salesmen.
