LAX Workout

LAX Workout, originally uploaded by davidjay13.

I think I just crutched 1/2 mile through LAX. I had a short layover
here and they came to the plane with a wheelchair for me and that was
very nice but I'm not fond of being carted around in a wheelchair so I
had the guy drop me at the red carpet club and then when I had to
board again I just crutched it...but wow I'm outta breath and maybe
even sweating a little. Lol...that was a long way but I made it!!!

I'm off to London this week for a U2 show! I'm so excited!

Also, next Monday I'd love to meetup with some of you. We've already
got a few photographers planning to meetup so stay tuned for a time
and place!

Rock on!

Designer Insight Group!

We just finished up our first Designer Insight Group and we held the two day confernce in SB at the Freedom House. We invited a bunch of the top web designers in the world to get specialized training by the Showit Crew and we're stoked to see more and more web designers switching over to use Showit to build their websites.

One of the evenings we took everyone out to the Canary Hotel in SB and went up on the rooftop deck to hangout before a delicious dinner down in their Coast Restaurant.

I can't wait for the next one!

Rock on!

This week we're having a two day conference at the Freedom House for a
few of the web designers now using Showit to develop websites! Yea!
Smart folks!

potential clients for web designers and so these designers who are

Sweet Shoes! Heutchy

Checkout my buddy's shoe company! He's sick!

Click here. It's called Heutchy and you may remember him from this image.

Josh Newton wins $1500 from Showit.

Yesterday I posted a contest on facebook that I was gonna be crusing around SB for the next couple of days on Christianne's little scooter b/c I can't drive a car. I just strap my crutches on there and it's great! I love it!

...and the first person to snap a picture of me on the scooter and post it on Facebook would win a free Showit PRO account and a few hours later Josh Newton came cruising around the corner on his Ducati with his friend Brendan James on a Harly so we snapped this picture and Josh is now $1500 richer thanks to Showit!

Look for more contests like this as I travel to London this next week and Costa Rica, Austria and Germany in the next couple of months.

More FREE Showit updates!

One of the greatest things about using Showit is that we are always making it better and adding more free features and better stuff! As opposed to template websites where you get what you get and you're stuck with it for the next year or two. Everytime we release something new you get it instantly and you don't have to pay anything extra!

So just the other day we launched an update to introduce a few new features and squash some minor bugs. If you haven't already... open up Showit and you should be prompted to install this latest update.

One of the new features added gives you the ability to control the latest galleries with any text or image you want to. Now you can advance the images in a gallery... advance the thumbnails... play... or pause... with whatever layer best fits your site. In the Link tab for any layer... check the Action radio button... match up the target with your thumb gallery and display area... choose the action for when the user clicks... and you're done!
In addition to that, we've also added some new options for the galleries. You can choose to hide the current thumb gallery controls if you're going to take advantage of the new options mentioned above. And you now have the ability to use a highlight color that will highlight the selected thumbnail and also highlight any thumbnail you mouse over.
Another feature added that will definitely speed up organizing your site is the ability to quickly add blank style groups and pages right from the pages panel. Make sure to right click on a style group in the pages panel and you'll see the new options in the displayed menu.

And here are some of the other things you'll be happy to know we've fixed:
  • Scrolling bug for organizing lists of images in a gallery
  • Background bug with style groups
  • Scroll bar issues on smaller monitors
  • Background editing on inherited backgrounds
  • "Copy URL" uses HTML instead if deep linking for improved SEO results

We hope you enjoy this update and let us know if you run into any issues.

Thanks again!
