I told you these would be more frequent! It’s been a fun week or two at Little Warden, lots of things happening and we can announce today we will be at Digital Olympus in Poland in April! It looks at a great event and we are really excited to head there and catch up with friends and make some new ones! (The plan is to have a little special gift for customers who come and see us during the conference)
- Whois, Robots.txt and a few other checks are now at HOST level rather than URL level [explained in this post]
- Meta Index, X-Robots and Robots.txt now have a ‘this is fine‘ button in Outstanding Issues
- Fixed an issue with protocol workers not picking up certain types of SSL
- Custom titles will now show up for Content / Element checks
- We now accept redirects with ports specified (for some reason this broke stuff)
- We’ve bumped the maximum amount of Custom Elements allowed per URL to 12 from 9.
- You can now request a Renewal Report from Robot Dom on slack [blog post coming later this week]
- Our Slack integration will now notify you when your domains / SSL are close to expiring more frequently than before! [blog post coming later this week]
We are going FULL steam ahead on our ‘new URL’ process, improving both the flow of adding URLs and reducing the amount of clicks required to do things.
Every month or so, Heather and I like to sit down (well I like to, Heather hates this) we sign up, go through the full onboarding process and think about what confusing elements or bits that we can see need improving, but as always if you’ve got any suggestions, send them across.
- We are heading quite quickly into Birthday month for Heather and Scarlett (and expensive month for Dom), Scarlett will be 4 years old! and Heather will be
[redacted]not as old as Dom.
- We’ve submited our preferences for Scarlett’s school, that has come by so quickly, pretty soon she’ll be able to do some code and actually contribute properly to Little Warden.
- Our next family project is building the Lego Train set that Dom got for Christmas, Heather and Scarlett sort the pieces into piles and Dom sticks it together (then Heather or Nicky fix it when he inevitably gets it wrong)
- We’ve put some more videos live of our Half Marathon in Las Vegas then Disneyland trip (…please subscribe)
Next Family Trip?
We’ve booked a sneaky little Day trip to Cadbury World next weekend with a Character Breakfast (let’s see how much chocolate we can aquire)
This is where we try and highlight something every week that we didn’t create in the hope it gets some attention from other people (and they aren’t a usually a client so THIS ISN’T A PAID LINK JOHN..
This time we’d like to give a shoutout to Alexandra Tachalova from Digital Olympus. We used to run a conference a few years ago and we know how hard it is (or was) Alexandra has taken Digital Olympus from an online only event to a physical presence with 600 people and we are proud to be a part of it this year.
I belive some tickets are still available so if you want to ‘Party in Poland‘ with Heather and Dom (warning, they may be in bed asleep by 10pm) then get yourself a ticket.
That’s a wrap!
I figure the URL thing will take a few weeks so I’m expecting the next update to be JUST before we go away to Paris.. but who knows #newyearnewme.
Real Dom, Heather, Scarlett and relucantly Robot Dom
