Sometimes, it’s not just what you’re selling, but how you’re selling it that really matters. Way back in 2008, we decided to launch a WordPress themes club called Spectacu.la. We had a couple of nice blogging themes that had been targeted for a marketplace, but as that marketplace got canned we found we had nowhere to sell them. We figured… continue reading ⇢

Here at interconnect/it we consider ourselves privileged to work in one of the greatest cities in the world. Liverpool has of course always been a cultural and creative hub, but the last few years has seen a number of creative businesses proliferate around the culturally rich “Hope Street Quarter.” Our offices on Brownlow Hill are at the edge of this area close… continue reading ⇢
Imagine that you’re building a theme, and in various places in that theme you have small elements that you’d just love to content manage. It could be items in a footer, in the header, or for use as widgets. Things like a copyright notice, a credit line, some free form spaces and so on. In the past, coding for this… continue reading ⇢

We’ve had a pretty busy few months here at interconnect/it and, as a consequence, we’ve failed to tell the world about a large number of website’s we’ve built recently.
Here’s one we built earlier. Hope you like it.

This month we can look forward to Lydia Bates and her talk on writing for the web, as well as the usual Q&A, show and tell and pub trip. You… continue reading ⇢
On the 5th August, it will be my last day at Interconnect/IT before I disappear to have my little bundle of crying and pooping joy. This blog post has been written with the purpose of both introducing myself (even if it only to say goodbye for now!) but to also show my appreciation of the great people here at Interconnect… continue reading ⇢
Let’s start with a story. In 2008, WordCamp UK started off in Birmingham. The concept was great – a WordPress related conference that would take place in a new city each year. And so it was. Good talks, good people, good fun. It doesn’t get much better. Year two was Cardiff. Year three, Manchester. And this year, 2011, WordCamp UK… continue reading ⇢
