Prices randomly changing to zero in Magento

Prices reverting to £0.0 in Magento

These are the questions/search terms we put into Google when we hit a really worrying problem with a newly launched ecommerce Magento site that we had developed for a client. The site had been tested on a private server and everything worked. We were confident enough to go live. Continue reading…

SEO for responsive websites

Having a responsive website, one that works on mobiles, tablets and PC’s has fast become an essential rather than desirable requirement for any website.

We all understand how a responsive site looks and works on different platforms but the real question we should be asking is: ‘Is SEO better on a responsive website?’ After all, a site that isn’t visible really isn’t going to do your business any good at all. Continue reading…

Building websites for Woodingdean

Building Websites for Woodingdean.

At Build14Me we are right proud to be part of our local community. We are based in Woodingdean which Wikepedia (link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodingdean) describes as being ‘an eastern suburb of the city of Brighton and Hove East Sussex, separated from the main part of the city by downland and the Brighton Racecourse’.

Woodingdean has a population of around 10,000 people and a pretty thriving business community. We are based on Warren Road which seems to act as a thoroughfare taking commuters, holiday makers and schools traffic from (East) Brighton towards the A27 and Lewes, London and Worthing. There are a number of businesses along our ‘stretch’ including a mobility shop, a newsagent, a burger bar, a couple of estate agents, a t-shirt embroidery business, Johny’s Wares (link http://www.johnyswares.co.uk/), Paws with a cause (link http://pawswithacause.co.uk/) a hairdresser, a funeral parlour, Woodingdean café (link http://www.woodingdeancafe.co.uk/), a blind shop, a carpet shop and the obligatory Tesco Express and local pub. And just a street or so away there is property maintenance company NP Dechaine (link http://npdechaineltd.co.uk//). Oak Cottage Nursery is opposite (on the South side of Warren Road) (link http://oakcottagenursery.org///)

Spotlight on: Aqutilis.tv – A website to behold – ‘Sea’ for yourself

Aquatilis.tv

Aquatilis is one of my favourite websites. It is an impressive display of web coding and design, but also built to raise awareness for a 3 year oceanic exploration!

Unfortunately, I will have to leave the exploration to the professionals, however with my profession being web design at Brighton’s Build14me.com, I can at least explore the Aquatilis website from the comfort of dry land and would absolutely invite you to do the same.

The site is incredibly visual and suitably designed around magnified images of the oceans most bizarre and colourful lifeforms.

You are welcomed to the site with animated waves rolling in the background and an ‘inhale’ button, seemingly being pushed around by the waves, enticing you to dive the first depth of your journey.
