Doodlekit - Latest Blog Comments en-us Top 10 Reasons Why Corporate IT Sucks - Dirk <p>All the corporations that I have worked for are exactly the same. <br />One was particularly bad. Manager's name was Tom. We started the acronym FoT - Friend of Tom. He hired all his friends. Last one he hired at a higher salary than he was making so he could get a big raise - I have to make more than the people that work for me. He basically hired the last guy to be the &quot;manager&quot; over two guys even though his title was Senior Software Dev. One of the two guys did 95+% of the coding on a complete ground up re-write of one of the software control and GUI systems. Upgrade was scheduled to cost $20k for each of the 3,000+ platforms. Demo'd at a trade show - customers loved it. The one guy doing all the work got a $200/year raise. He went to work for another company for $30k/year more. He said he would stay for a match. Company wouldn't do it. Project never got finished. They threw away potentially $60M in revenue for $30k. A new electrical engineer there figured out a problem that other engineers had tried to figure out for 5+ years. When the issue occurred at a customer site it meant flying an engineer to fix it not to mention down time for the customer - at least $200k/year total plus bad will. The temp/consultant VP of engineering tried to get him a bonus. He got a letter back saying that if there was any money left over after the management bonuses they would consider it. Needless to say he didn't get a bonus. This was a small company - 200 or so people - but the CEO lived in another state and flew in each Monday. How much was that? <br />The company was a 90 year old company and the management drove it into the ground in less than 4 years. All the engineers I knew saw the writing on the wall and jumped ship.</p> Wed, 26 Aug 2015 17:20:45 -0500 /blog/entry/55860/top-10-reasons-why-corporate-it-sucks#comment4244282 Win A Free Website - FOREVER!!! - Yonas Berhanu <p>it is nice and prefebele website for free domain ,I am so happy get this free website.I like it and realy it is forever free website</p> Tue, 04 Aug 2015 02:03:47 -0500 /blog/entry/3684050/win-a-free-website-forever#comment4242538 Top 10 Reasons Why Corporate IT Sucks - Corporate IT Germany <p>This article is spot on. Nothing different here in Europe. <br />It's not fun to see your colleagues losing their jobs to some Indian IT guys. (They are mostly horrible coders - no comments, weird variable declarations, procedural style). <br />Almost all corporate IT projects are about saving costs. Some 1%er millionaire and billionaire shareholders from Dubai and Hong Kong have to get richer than they already are! <br />Dealing with legacy crap from the last century - no thanks.</p> <p>Never - ever - work for corporate IT. The only exception is maybe Google, facebook or Apple. <br />Developers, go join a tech startup and change the world ;)</p> Mon, 20 Jul 2015 08:17:43 -0500 /blog/entry/55860/top-10-reasons-why-corporate-it-sucks#comment4241451 Template Design Tools: General - Body Settings - Marielle Holmes <p>Awesome!

Started at 30k and made my way up to 80k with average 4% raises every year. It was good. I got laid off because our little company got bought out by another bigger company and worst case scenario economic collapse occurred in 2008. New Management came in and gave themselves big bonuses and big raises. At least 6 people in the IT department were making 100K a year and to pay for it all they came after the little guy making 80k. So they cut me and took mine to pay for it. IT sucks now. </p> <p>Now I work for another company making half what I use to make. I wont let six months hit me before I walk out the door. Got my house paid for, so now all I have to find is food and money for internet access.</p> Sun, 03 May 2015 09:52:34 -0500 /blog/entry/55860/top-10-reasons-why-corporate-it-sucks#comment4235775 Auto Scroll Down Links (Internal Anchors) - girish soni <p>Hi.. I am trying to do something similar and am hoping you know if this is possible. I have a display area at the top of the page, then a large area that has a &lt;div overflow. The idea is that the information at the top of the page stay in view while the information in the overflow is scrollable.</p> <p>If someone clicks on an area in the overflow it changes the display at the top. This all works. Now I'd like to make it so the clicked field in the overflow (scroll) area moves to the top of the scroll area.</p> <p>I first implemented this with the # as you described above but as you can imagine the page scrolls up and now the display area is no longer visible. Is there anyway to have it only scroll within the scroll area not the page?</p> Tue, 31 Mar 2015 08:51:08 -0500 /blog/entry/55645/auto-scroll-down-links-internal-anchors#comment4232968 Template Design Tools: General - Body Settings - Heath Huffman <p>No, this is a waste of time to try and prevent. People can always do screenshots and other methods to get copies of your images. The only thing you can do is threaten litigation on those site you find using your images.</p> Sun, 01 Mar 2015 22:48:10 -0600 /blog/entry/3719689/template-design-tools-general-body-settings#comment4230068 Template Design Tools: General - Body Settings - CM CAVE <p>I was wondering if there was a way to disable &quot;right click&quot; so that content and images would be protected from copy and paste?</p> Sun, 22 Feb 2015 23:38:24 -0600 /blog/entry/3719689/template-design-tools-general-body-settings#comment4229472 How To Make Logos & Banners For Your Website - Kiran Pal-Pross <p>Hi Jason,</p> <p>I'm not sure if it has something to do with the template you're using, but on mine I just clicked on the Header and loaded my photos. It says right there that loading more than one creates a slideshow. </p> <p>There's another place you can check - in Website Administration Tools - click on Templates, then Advanced Design Tools, then the Header tab. Your first photo should show with a square recycled arrow symbol in the centre. You can edit it from there as well. </p> <p>Hope that helps!</p> Mon, 09 Feb 2015 22:30:24 -0600 /blog/entry/3690624/how-to-make-logos-banners-for-your-website#comment4228695 Multi-Language Labeling For Doodlekit - Heath Huffman <p>Hi Juliana,</p> <p>To truly make your pages international, you would probably want to hire professionals to rewrite all your content into each new language. Outside of that you would have to rely on content translation through automation - which never works out that well. That being said, it is probably the only option available for you. This technology is already easily accessible through browsers and search engines (Google will translate any page to any language). </p> Fri, 02 Jan 2015 22:49:40 -0600 /blog/entry/8910/multilanguage-labeling-for-doodlekit#comment4226327 Multi-Language Labeling For Doodlekit - juliana wernerova <p>I would like to have my page in various languages.
