Does anyone remember when guestbooks were popular? :D
Back in the 90’s a guestbook was the height of style, your website had a few static pages, but then a magical link called ‘guestbook’ allowed people to post public messages and their name. The guestbook showed off how popular you were really!
Ooooo I have 300 guestbook comments how cool!!
Flat file database free web sites
Recently I have had the opportunity to play around with a database free CMS called GRAV. What a pleasure it is to code and use!
First of all it comes with an admin plugin, where I can publish new pages, view stats, edit content, upload images, basically everything a CMS with a database can do. I often forgot while working with GRAV that there isn’t a database driving it, which just shows how flawless the admin interface is.
Taken from the GRAV website below:
Grav is not your average CMS. It’s an open source, flat-file NoDB CMS written for PHP 5.5.9+ that is focused on being crazy fast, easy to learn and use, with powerful features to enable it be easily extended.
The main highlights!
- Facebook has now introduced cover video, all profile photos for pages will now be circular, so make sure that square logo isn’t cutting off text at the corners, plenty of whitespace.
Using HTML5 video tag

HTML5 Video background
In order to provide the best separation between text and background image/video, employ a div which will cover the background with an opaque colour which the text can then sit on top of and remain legible.
