Why Do We Use Cloudflare?

May 10, 2021

When we set up client websites we’re sometimes asked for more in-depth details on why we move DNS to Cloudflare. We list a few primary points in our site-setup post from May 2020, but are happy to elaborate further here.

California Prop 65 Conditional Text in WooCommerce

February 25, 2021

If you’re shipping products subject to Proposition 65 rules to addresses in California you’ll need to display text accordingly upon checkout. Surprisingly as of February 2021 we could find no working code or plugin that correctly displayed a message for an individual state.

Seeing our Website Launches in 20/20

August 10, 2020

Let me tell you something about websites: they only truly exist if you visit them. They are very existentialist that way. And once you get there, once you’ve participated in the shared experience of our Razorfrog servers loading a website, and your human brain and eyes undertaking their perception, we want to make sure that whole thing was worth it, always, for any business that wants to exist in the infinite, unknowable web space.Read More
