My Tech Tailor new website

We've launched our redesigned website for My Tech Tailor, mytechtailor.com, built with Perch! All of the websites in our portfolio at mytechtailor.com/websites are built with Perch as well.

Our clients are in love with the CMS. I'm told "I can't believe how easy this is" on a regular basis. Thanks Drew & Rachel!

Really nice work.

Nice work!

Nice. I like the way the contact form is handled. I had to submit it to see what happens.

I've briefly played with the idea of opening a contact form on the same page (in a modal window), but ran into issues with validation and submissions.

Beautiful website.

Thanks everyone. The compliments really mean a lot coming from other web devs.

Stephen, I handle the validation with JS and submit the form with AJAX. In the form I have:

<perch:success>
    <script>
    return 'SUCCESS';
    </script>
</perch:success>
<perch:error for="all" type="general">
    <script>
    return 'CMS Submission Failure';
    </script>
</perch:error>

Then in my JS I listen for the return:

.done(function(data) {
  if(data.indexOf("SUCCESS") > -1) {
    // form was submitted successfully
  } else {
    // there was an error submitting to the Forms app
  }
}).fail(function() {
    // there was an error with the AJAX POST
});

You could also create a return for every type of Forms app error and then use Forms for the validation, but I already have a JS validation script that I like, so I just used that.
