I was recently asked to guest host on the EE Podcast with my fellow Albuquerque EE developer Emily Lewis. We interviewed Ryan Battles on EE Error pages. Have a listen:

EE Error Pages with Ryan Battles
While error pages like 404 Page Not Found are “standard” server messages, they don’t always present your site visitors with useful information. Ryan Battles joins the show to talk about ways to make your server and site error messages more effective. He discusses how developers should approach their ExpressionEngine templates to ensure that a correct 404 redirect occurs, and shares tips for customizing EE’s system messages and front-end form validation.

Proposed ExpressionEngine Stack Exchange Site

Proposed ExpressionEngine Stack Exchange Site

The ExpressionEngine community has rallied and is actively supporting a new Stack Exchange proposed site specific for ExpressionEngine developers.

I am in complete support of this proposed site and am doing everything I can do to get the proposal to Beta stage. Please join us by "committing" to the proposal on the Stack Exchange Area 51 site.

In addition to committing to the EE proposal, you will also need to build a reputation of 200 or higher on one of the 90 available Q&A Stack Exchange sites.

We also encourage you to post any and all ExpressionEngine questions to the StackOverflow.com website until the proposed EE site it up and running. Post a link to the question on Twitter with the #eecms hash tag and you will get very quick answers to your questions.

ExpressionEngine & Newspapers

ExpressionEngine & Newspapers

If you're searching for the perfect CMS for a newspaper or magazine project, look no further... ExpressionEngine rocks large content sites and scales well as data and traffic grows. Below are four of my projects that are good examples of what EE can do:

- Zocalo is the largest traffic and content site I've worked on. It's for a daily Mexican newspaper.

- Gulf Coast Business Review is a weekly business newspaper.

- zRecs Network is a group of online blogs focused on kid related content.

- Inkling Magazine is an online magazine on science and women.
