Manor Farm Cottage website

Manor Farm Cottage

I’ve just finished work on a little site for my Mother’s first holiday cottage in Goodmanham. The site features some wonderful photos from Leeds based freelance photographer Rick Harrison, some great copy writing from former colleague Ste Sawyer and a sweet little booking system module from PHP developer Graham Smith. It's built on the ExpressionEngine content management system in HTML5. I nearly always use jQuery for my javascript these days so there's a fair bit of that in use. I've also taken a conscious decision not to support IE6 for now. I think I'll fix that in a while though. I'm also going to be doing a stripped back version for mobiles.

So if you are looking for a great place to stay in the heart of the East Yorkshire Wolds then Manor Farm Cottages are ready to take your bookings now.

Enhancing your designs with CSS3

When I designed the current version of this site I always had it in my mind that one day in the dim and distant future I would enhance the design with some CSS3. I wasn’t thinking about anything too radical - rounded corners, and some shadows on my fonts and boxes would do. Well after reading an excellent article on Smashing Magazine by Inayaili de Leon appropriately enough titled Take Your Design To The Next Level With CSS3 I decided to do just that. Bear in mind that many browsers, especially ones beginning with IE, still do not support these enhancements.
