DAY Communications LLC Design & Function for Web & Print

Mobile view of site popup

Popups are great to capture attention and present important content on desktop and tablet sites, but on the smartphone view, they can get in the way.

Various solutions to hide the popup from the mobile view have been shared. For example, Conditional CSS, and Temporary Solution to Hide Popup on Mobile Devices, and Create a Simple Responsive Popup Window with jQuery.

I recently solved my problem with this dilemma by adjusting the css on the popup.css file by adding a media call for a mobile view, and changing the selectors to hide or revise those of the divs in the main css. Though I was not able to simply wrap the code for the popup in a display:none css div, I could isolate my display:none div to wrap only the image, and without the 1. Overlay, 2. Popup and 3. Image css definitions showing on the mobile view, it is now clean and user-friendly.

Chatbot developers in the catbird seat?

Chatbots are in the news. Should you invest in this prospect? What is a chatbot?

“Chatbots have the power to personalize a business, give customers a more intimate experience and build consumer loyalty by giving a phone menu or website store a pleasant, responsive, human personality. They may eventually take the place of customer-service people, store clerks and even psychotherapists as computer speeds and artificial intelligence evolve.”

Are you falling for the vanilla flavor in a CMS?

Why not rather be passionate?

It's always disturbing when I'm relaxing at night to see a TV commercial for Wix or another such competitor to DAY Communications' wonderful services. It's painful because— what can they offer that I can't? Nothing! You just get an interface rather than a real face (consultation), a template rather than a custom design, and  "wal-mart" server solutions rather than intelligent hosting with custom features.

What do "free" websites offer? They'll give you a cookie-cutter "professional web presence" with "high-quality designs," a little SEO, wording to start you out based on your industry, and a CMS (content management system) that lets you add images and content easily, for ONLY $9.99/month (or $19.99 or $29.99 if you what more bells and whistles), or if only for personal use, it's perhaps $4.99/month after a brief free trial.

Add e-commerce for an additional $4.99/month and you get nothing but PayPal functionality, a free add-on for any website, or for $19.99/month (additional to your base fee) you get the CMS with order and inventory management, etc. For more money, you can feature more products and get more GBs for loading content and getting more traffic. pistachio and chocolate ice cream on sugar cone

Compare that to a BlogEngine or Office365 website solution, which are DAY Communications' out-of-the-box solutions for people who want an instant web app. For my custom design fee plus reasonable hosting fees you can have branded email and a CMS that is MUCH more sophisticated and flexible. There is no comparison between Office 365 and WordPress. And BlogEngine permits addition of custom AND plugin functionality.

Add PayPal for free, or let us help you find an ecommerce solution that complements your site.

How do you add up your cost in time and aggravation, or business lost because of wording that really does not explain your services? You will spend far less with me and you'll get a Pistachio Cherry or Chocolate Marble CMS.

DAY also provides custom design and set up for multiple blogs, various apps, and websites with full ASP.NET functionality. If any of your web information needs to convert to print, no matter what format, we can do that as well.
