As of today, December 1st, 2013, the seyDesign brand is now being carried on by Jonathan Head (that’s me), the founder and lead developer of NimbleHost.

If you’re a seyDesign customer you may be wondering what’s going to come of seyDesign, and I’d like to ensure you that seyDesign is not going anywhere. Customers are still receiving the same exceptional support. Product updates are still being released. New products are on the way.

In short, we’ve taken great pains to ensure that you won’t be able to tell that anything’s changed at all, and will continue in the tradition of excellence Adam (the original seyDesign founder) has established. Of course, if there are things you’d like to see changed or improved, please do let me know.

If you’re not a seyDesign customer, now is a fantastic time to take a look at the awesome RapidWeaver addons they (well, I guess I should say “we” now) create. You’ll receive the same legendary service at seyDesign that you’ve come to expect from NimbleHost, with top quality themes and stacks perfect for any RapidWeaver project you’ll be working on.

Thanks for your continued support, and I look forward to working with you!




RapidSearch Interruption

by Jonathan on November 24, 2013

It looks like Google has finally pulled the plug on the old web search API that RapidSearch has faithfully used for several years. We are currently working on an update that will switch to the newer Custom Search API.

You may be wondering why we didn’t update RapidSearch sooner – this is because the newer Custom Search API is more restrictive and harder for you, as a RapidWeaver user, to setup and use. In order to do so, you have to first create your own “Custom Search Engine” directly via your Google account (this can’t be done via RapidSearch) and jump through other previously unnecessary hoops. Additionally, ads are now built-in to the experience, and removing them requires that you switch to a paid search account with Google. Our hope was to spare you this pain until it was absolutely necessary, and it seems that time has come.

We’ll be posting more information about the next RapidSearch update here, and via our mailing list (join here). Stay posted, and we’ll get RapidSearch updated to work with the newer API as soon as possible!

Why Cruftless Links Are Better for SEO

November 8, 2012

A number of customers have been contacting us recently with concerns about changing the file names for their RapidWeaver pages. The reason for this is because we have two different plugins (Mobilize and RapidSearch Pro) that require PHP, and as such, require a .php file extension to be used. These customers are worried that by […]
