Centering Squarespace Buttons

Centering just one call to action button is easily done in Squarespace. But what if you have multiple buttons, and you want them in a row and centered as a group. That's a harder task, and I present in this post a fun hack to help you solve it. 

Facebooking the Squarespace Flatiron

Have you built a site on a Squarespace template such as Flatiron or Marquee supporting the concept of index pages or index collections? Do you post a page or a gallery link to Facebook only to be frustrated that Facebook ignores the metadata for the page you are posting and displays the index page's metadata instead? Keep reading!

Gizmodo Explodo

I respond to an infographic promoted recently by the blog Gizmodo on the "top five misconceptions about evolution according to science". In fact, it is the creationist side who gets the science right. The infographic is an example of the sort of false claims to which creationists are too often subjected. 

Remembering My Father

"His Majesty allows us 6 lbs. of coal per man per 24 hrs." These words and what follow on a long-hidden-away postcard provide insight into what it was like for those serving in one of the worst wars of the 20th century.

Seven Tips toward Better Writing

"D- - n, d- -n, the author & publisher I say!" You're looking at a well-known sketch from 1807. What? You don't want your readers to react in that way? I should hope not. Here to help are seven tips toward better writing that I presented as a lightning talk at C14 OakTable World Las Vegas – an event sponsored by the OakTable Network and held in conjunction with the IOUG's Collaborate14 conference.
