1. Article Manager Special - An $80 Value!

Just until May 31st Article Manager will be only $269, and as an added bonus, you'll receive an entire hour of consulting time with one of our product experts, absolutely free!

With a savings of $30, and $50 of consulting free, that's a total value of $80 - you can even save $120 off the regular 5-pack price, or $195 on a 10-pack!

With your free hour we can help you get instantly started by doing many of the initial template changes for you. You can even use your free hour to take advantage of Article Manager's most advanced features: set up a two column homepage, place your headlines in different sections of your site, or create an RSS feed. How you use your free hour is entirely up to you. :)

To pick up a discounted license of Article Manager with your free hour of Priority Consulting, just visit our order page.

You can learn more about Priority Consulting.


2. Coming Soon - Article Manager Cross-Browser WYSIWYG Support

With so many more people using Mozilla and Firefox, we're getting set to release cross-browser WYSIWYG support for Article Manager. Mozilla and Firefox users will soon be able to format their article content using a WYSIWYG editor.

It's also great news for Mac users. While it won't yet support Safari, Mac users can access the WYSIWYG editor using their Mozilla or Firefox browser.

From what I've seen so far, the editor looks phenomenal. Stay tuned for the next newsletter when we announce its release! :)


3. CSS Reference Links

One thing that's always helped me out when working with websites was having an excellent list of development resources. I've even gone as far as to create a browser home page loaded with all of these links. In this newsletter I've included some excellent CSS resources. Take a look and let me know what you think. :)

This CSS cheat sheet has almost everything related to CSS, including properties, syntax, and selectors. What's more, the author will even let you print it for your own reference!

Next is a diagram of the CSS Box Model Hierarchy. Sound confusing? This diagram makes it much easier to understand, clearly illustrating how margins, padding, and other CSS elements are layered.

I'm constantly on the lookout for useful resources we can share. If you know of any tutorials or references please send me a link (luke@interactivetools.com) and I'll see if I can include them in a future newsletter.


4. Googspy - Useful Search Marketing Tool

Ever wondered where your competitors rank on Google, or even which keywords they've purchased?

GoogSpy.com, a very cool search marketing tool released by Velocityscape, helps answer this question. With GoogSpy.com, you simply enter the name or web address of your competitor and it'll return several of their top ranking organic and paid search terms. Googspy.com will even provide you with a lists of the company's top 25 competitors.


5. FireFox 1.04 Released

Mozilla has recently updated their FireFox browser. The latest release is a security update. It turns out that two vulnerabilities were identified, which may be exploited by remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands.

FireFox has a ton of great features such as tabbed browsing, RSS integration, and popup blocking. Most useful is the Web Developer extension, which allows you to resize your browser, disable images, validate your HTML, and so much more.

You can download FireFox 1.0.4 here.


6. interactivetools Overrun by Spiders!

Our office is being overrun by insanely large spiders! If you don't believe me, you can see a picture of them crawling on Tara.

Okay, okay, I'm only kidding! :)

Cinemazoo, an animal agency, helped Dave and Tara throw a birthday party for Dave's son Jonah. The party was held at Jonah's preschool, and the entertainment included tarantulas, snakes, and all sorts of other wild life. As you can see in the picture, the trainer had the spiders crawl over people brave enough to volunteer.


7. Theo in Australia

Theo, our project manager, is on vacation right now in Australia. He sent us an update and we thought it would be great to share his experiences with you.

We're hoping to hear more updates from him, but we really don't know what his computer access will be like.

I've posted his most recent update in the forum. Please feel free to say hi or leave him a comment.
