  1. Entropy Crushers →

    I’ve spoken to a lot of people about team growth and scaling recently. So far I’m content with limiting our growth and continuing to allow each team member to have a great deal of responsibility and autonomy. That said, we do have roles (such as Project Manager) that loosely defines each person’s primary area of responsibility.

  2. RAMP 1.2 and a RAMP Post ID Meta Conversion Plugin

    We released an update to RAMP yesterday to address a compatibility issue introduced in WordPress 3.5.2 as well as adding support for the post locking feature that will be arriving in WordPress 3.6 and addressing a few other issues. This is a recommended upgrade for all customers. We also released the RAMP Post ID Meta…

    capsule-512

    I’m very pleased to announce the release of Capsule v1.1 (and Capsule Server v1.1). In this release we added some pretty handy features along with addressing the usual array of 1.0-related issues. The download and an online demo are available on the Crowd Favorite website. Some of the highlights in the new version include: A…

  4. Awesome Web App/UI Designer Wanted (Contract)

    My team and I are building a new web application and are looking to collaborate with a UI designer to help us bring it to life. You understand that a great application is one that delights the user with its elegance and ease of use. You have reasons for your decisions and enjoy the opportunity…

  5. Backflip Studios

    Backflip Studios

    Crowd Favorite recently helped Backflip Studios launch a great new WordPress-powered website. Backflip makes mobile games, and they have awesome artwork. It’s always a treat to work with beautiful content. This was a pretty straight-forward WordPress CMS site. We created a custom post type for their games so they can easily manage them (and add…

  6. Social 2.7

    Just in time for the holidays I am very pleased to report we have a new version of Social for you (compliments of our good friends at MailChimp and my team at Crowd Favorite). This release as a few changes of note: Points to a new Social proxy URL. The old one will stop working…

  7. Take RAMP for a Spin

    RAMP demo

    We recently added the ability to take RAMP for a test drive before you buy. On the RAMP page, click that “Demo” button to sign up and we’ll set up both a staging and production WordPress site for you – with RAMP installed and configured on both sites. You can log in, create and upload…

  8. Signage

    Crowd Favorite Conference Room Sign

    It only took a year after our remodel, but we finally got a sign up in our conference room. New whiteboards are set to be installed in the next few weeks as well.

  9. Social 2.6

    Social 2.6 is now available for download! This release was initially intended to handle a smallish set of bug fixes, but then Twitter announced version 1.1 of their API and we figured while we were in there we might as well make all the changes necessary for compatibility. So the good news is that this…

  10. Twitter Tools 3.0.2

    I’ve released Twitter Tools 3.0.2 to address a handful of bugs and add a few customization points: Add aktt_tweet_create_blog_post filter to allow other plugins/code to make programatic decisions about when to create blog posts from tweets Add aktt_tweet_create_blog_post_format filter to allow post format to changed or omitted Properly apply title prefix when creating blog posts…

  11. Hiring: Web Application UI/UX Designer

    We’re still in the process of filling the three positions I posted about previously (technical project manager, front-end web developer and full-stack web developer), but we’ve just added another position that I’m really excited about. We are looking for someone to join our team specifically as a UI/UX lead for web applications. We do a…

  12. Crowd Favorite is Hiring: Devs and Project Manager

    Earlier this summer Crowd Favorite enjoyed it’s 5 year anniversary. I’m really proud of what we’ve been able to do as a team over this time. In the last few years, it’s become clear to me that hiring and recruiting is both the hardest and most important part of my job. A great team sets…

  13. RAMP 1.1

    Quick Send

    When I was posting about our recent releases, I overlooked version 1.1 of RAMP. This is the first major feature release of RAMP, and we added a bunch of great features. Perhaps the most useful user feature is the “quick send” feature. Now when you publish or update a post, there is a “RAMP It”…

    We’ve released version 1.1 of our FavePersonal theme for WordPress (the theme you see on this site).
