2. Coach's Corner - Multi-Column Search Results In Listings Manager - By Mike Briggs
Coach's Corner - Multi-Column Search Results In Listings Manager - By Mike Briggs Last month's Coach's Corner with Google-Style "Pagination" seemed to be pretty popular, so this month I've decided to touch on another popular subject. This tutorial is something that's been mentioned in a few forum threads before, and I thought it deserved it's own tutorial.

This month, I'll show you how you can set up Listings Manager's search results page to display its results in multiple columns.

This is pretty quick to set up. All that's involved is adding a few lines of JavaScript to the _search_results.html template file. If you have a large number of listings on your site this can really organize your search results page.

Feel free to drop me an email or post to our forum with your questions. We can also do the entire set up for you through Priority Consulting, so if you need any help just send an email and we'll go over your requirements together.
3. Ross Report - Page Publisher WYSIWYG File Uploads - By Ross Fairbairn
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say Hello. Hello, hello! Hi everyone.

I have a great Ross Report for you this month. Keeping in line with last time, we're going to be getting a little technical, but don't worry, I've got all the steps for you covered.

While Page Publisher includes a feature for uploading images and files, some customers have asked "Can I upload images in Page Publisher from within the WYSIWYG editor?" Because I like to find you the best solution I can, I researched some different options. After some hard work, I managed to make something work. That's right, in this tutorial here, I show you how to setup your Page Publisher WYSIWYG editor to upload files and images from within the editor itself.
4. Offbeat News: Nunchuks And Wheat Grass - By Donna Brown
Offbeat News: Nunchuks And Wheat Grass - By Donna Brown When Dave (our esteemed leader) comes into the office and says, "Hey, I got something for each of you!" there's cause for mild concern. Granted, it's often something fun and interesting -- last week we all got nunchucks. Mine are red. So far, I've succeeded in hitting myself in the head with them on several occasions. Don't worry, there's no lasting damage... I think. We're all improving vastly (sometimes I even catch them!) so if ninjas ever storm the office, we'll be ready to defend ourselves with our foam-padded weapons!

Occasionally Dave's "surprises" are a little more foreboding, like one afternoon when he started off with, "You have to be open minded...". Actually, "foreboding" doesn't begin to describe it.

That day, it was wheat grass juice. Very healthy, according to some websites, I found. Anti-cancer, lots of benefits to the blood, improves digestion...and tastes dreadful. You know when you cut the lawn, and you open the bag and you've got a big mess of fresh cut grass? Imagine drinking it. Actually, imagine concentrating it, then drinking it. It's REALLY strong. And REALLY bad. I felt a little queasy the rest of that day...

Working with Dave? Always an adventure.

Editor's Note: Next newsletter maybe we'll have some pics or videos of us showing off our awesome nunchuks moves. :)
5. Useful Links For Developers
Useful Links For Developers I'm always on the lookout for useful resources, and share the best/most interesting/weirdest ones here with you. It's those "diamonds in the rough" that I think a web master or web developer like yourself will find most useful.

This time around I stumbled upon some cool links, and what's best, they're free! :)

stock.xchng
With over 200,000 images to choose from, stock.xchng (pronounced stock exchange) is a resource chock-full of high quality free stock photography. Maybe you're looking for images or artwork for your site, or a new desktop image. Or perhaps you have some photos of your own to share with the world? stock.xchange is a good place to start.

Free Icons
Rather than photos and art, you might be looking for some navigation icons for the your own site or web application. If so, you can check out these free icons from maxpower. Another excellent source for free icons is FamFamFam.

We've also got some of the best resources indexed at htmlArea.com - you can find some excellent stock photo or icon sites there.

If you have a resource you would like to share let me know and perhaps I can feature it in a future newsletter.
6. Dave's Secret Project Needs Your Help
Project Chela - Submit Your Photo People from all over the world are helping Dave (our fearless leader) with his top-secret birthday surprise for Chela (CHAY-luh). You can help out too!

Check out Project Chela, where people send in photos of themselves and their friends holding up a birthday message for Chela. So far, it's got photos from Ohio, Texas, New Zealand, and a bunch from Vancouver - even some of us from interactivetools.com. Dave's on the bull, Donna's holding a sign up in the air, and I'm the guy sitting on the escalator.

Dave needs your help and time is running out - Chela's birthday is on May 31st! Wherever in the world you are, you can help by sending in a photo, posting a link on your blog, or forwarding the website (www.projectchela.com) to your friends in different places around the world.
