How to Batch Download SquareSpace PDF Files

So your client is on Square Space. And all of their files were uploaded there. Squarespace however doesn’t provide FTP so you can’t just go in and grab them all. Only images are found in the /sitemap.xml file – so we need a way to get a list of all of the PDF files that have… Read more »

WordPress Hotel Reservation System

I recently finished a couple months stint crushing season upon season of Hotel Impossible.

With the help of Corbin’s contacts and clients out in Saskatchewan we had built up a decent size client base while still operating primarily from Halifax. Because… Read more »

Integrate Shelter Buddy with WordPress & Increase Pet Adoptions

We’ve seen it time and time again. Non profits and charitable organizations with websites that need a facelift. None are more familiar with this than animal shelters. The logic does make sense, as inconvenient as it is for the end-user. Saving animals takes precedence over a highly use-able website, as funds can only go so far.… Read more »

Fix Gravity Forms Conflict with W3 Total Cache

Amongst our favourite wordpress plugins are 2 heavyweights. Gravity forms – the superior forms management plugin that is easily one of the most extensible form management plugins out there, and W3 Total Cache – the ultimate Caching / Minification plugin. Unfortunately, when you lock these two titans into the same corner, the outcome can be… Read more »

Recent Website Designs for Non-Profits in Regina SK

We’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to design and develop the websites of some incredible charitable organizations here in Regina, Saskatchewan. When we first started Command Base back in 2011, we didn’t just want to be another web shop that would churn out site after site with no regard for whom they were working for. We wanted… Read more »
