With more and more people using their iPhones or Androids to surf the web, it is getting more important every day to have a specific mobile-formatted version of your website. In the case of the Peoria Civic Center, they needed a mobile version of their site that would list events by category, present a simple email contact form, give driving directions and a way to purchase tickets. 

This was accomplished with a variety of tools, including many server and client side technologies that allow quick and easy administrative updates, as well as an interface that allows the best possible user experience for all smartphones.

In addition, the Peoria Civic Center's website was upgraded with other mobile-friendly tools like QR codes and browser-sniffing. If you want to know what any of those terms mean, contact TJ Dub today and I'd be glad to fill you in!

I love having local, Peoria-based clients! My latest website was created for the Peoria County Bar Association, which is an organization for Peoria-area attorneys to sign up for emailed newsletters, purchase memberships, register for events, and more. The administrative tools are easy to use and members can log in for change and update account details. 

Since the PCBA is Peoria-based, I also was able to sit down one-on-one for some website training to make sure they knew how to operate their website once it was launched. This was a great project to work on, and I look forward to serving more Peoria-based clients as well as the attorneys that are part of the Peoria County Bar Association.

TJ Dub Web Design was featured on the local WEEK news channel! The office space we occupy is in the Warehouse District of Peoria and in the midst of a major renovation. Peoria is taking major strides to improve the area and restore some of the buildings, and WORKflow is at the bleeding edge of the restoration. 

TJ Dub is a proud resident and supporter of Peoria and the Warehouse District, and I'm thrilled to have been given the opportunity to talk about it on the local news channel.

There's  been a lot of changes at TJ Dub Web Design since our last blog post, and we're dedicated to providing more consistent updates! 

The biggest news is that we've moved! The office on Jefferson and Spaulding in downtown Peoria got a little too cramped, so we took the leap and moved into a newly renovated building in the Warehouse District of Peoria, Illinois. The space is great for us and our clients through Peoria, Bloomington, East Peoria and more.

Peoria IL Web Design Office

TJ Dub has been supplying Peoria and the surrounding areas like Bloomington, East Peoria, and more for several years, and I'm excited to announce that we now have access to additional office space in Washington, Illinois and Bloomington / Normal Illinois for convenience of meeting with clients. 

Secondly, we've finally found a great web service provider. After years of struggling to find a good solution in dealing with web hosting for TJ Dub's personal sites and clients, we've settled on a Cloud Server provider, supplying the maximum of uptime and support at no additional costs to you. 

Please give us a call and let us know how we can help you!

Open letter to all clients using TJ Dub for hosting:

I cannot apologize enough, but the server that TJ Dub uses for hosting suffered a massive outage for the past 16 hours.

Some sites were able to be transferred within a couple hours in the early hours of the morning and should have never experienced any downtime. Some sites were not so fortunate, losing a day of hosting while your site was down.

Please believe me when I say that this outage is not at all typical of the hosting that TJ Dub supplies and we are taking measures to ensure it will not happen again.

Thanks for visiting the new and improved TJDub.com! The old design was getting a little long in the tooth for a company that prides itself on innovative website design, so the old website has been completely demolished and turned into the one you see now. Please be patient as the dust settles and the wrinkles are ironed out.

The website renovation was done in preparation of the Peoria Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, so if you're one of the Expo's attendees who I talked to, welcome to the site! If you're finding me any other way, I'm glad you're here and I hope you take a look around the site.

<![CDATA[Internet Explorer 6]]> http://www.tjdub.com/blog/Internet_Explorer_6.html http://www.tjdub.com/blog/Internet_Explorer_6.html http://www.tjdub.com/blog/Internet_Explorer_6.html#comments Filed under:

It is with a heavy heart that TJ Dub Web Design cuts off support for IE6. Internet Explorer 6.0 was released to the world in August of 2001 and, at the time, was a revolutionary browser that made great strides in CSS support, JavaScript and DOM, and more.

However, all good things must come to an end. Supporting a browser that is closing in on 8 years old is just something that we cannot support in any good conscience. In 2001, IE6 supported many things other browsers didn't. However, in 2009, IE6 is an anchor that is holding back the future of the web. Supporting a browser that old means inflated code, hacks to make it work in an old browser, and leaving out features that don't work across the board. Rather than face these circumstances, we're cutting off support for this old browser and recommending many other free solutions that are much better supported in today's internet. Firefox, IE7, Safari and Chrome are all free and respectable browsers.

Of course all our sites are still viewable in IE6, but no longer optimized for it. Some features may not work and, depending on the site and its complexity, the layout may be a little broken. Web design and development is a fast moving field, and supporting old software holds us back.
