Forbes writer Victor Lipman wrote an article today about Pixo Vice President Amber Johnson's speech in Steamboat this last weekend about the effectiveness of mommy blogging social media campaigns. You can read the entire article here. To quote Mr Lipman in his Forbes article:
A little over a week ago I headed to Oregon to meet with Franz Maruna, CEO of Concrete5 to talk about Concrete5, find out how the marketplace works and see where Concrete5 is heading. Everyone at Concrete5 that I had a chance to meet were great to speak with and a pleasure to be around. The corporate office is in a rejuvenated warehouse near downtown Portland on an upper level floor of the building. Franz mentioned that they are going to be knocking down a wall this week to expand the offices and to increase their space. They currently have 12 employees plus a lot of volunteers.
Pixo has just release a new Concrete5 form add-on that allows you to put your Concrete5 form block field labels inside the form field. This handy add-on allows you to create forms that are more compact which is great when you don't have a lot of space in sidebars and other tight spots to have wide form elements. This add-on also creates the form fields tableless so if you want to style the form elements using CSS it is easy to do. Two great custom templates with this one add-on.
Pixo has developed a new add-on that allows you to put the label for a text field for the Concrete5 form block inside the text field like you see below. Often site administrators have limited space for form fields in sidebars and other areas of a site and as a result the standard Concrete5 block doesn't work well because with the label to the left of the text field it takes up a lot of space. With the custom templates that install with this add-on you will now be able to create forms that have the lables for text fields and text areas inside the form field. You also get the advantage of tableless form fields that are easy to style if you want to give your form a particular look.
