Local Business Breaks Ground the Old Fashioned Way

A Ground breaking ceremony conducted Thursday August 3th was a reminder of a time gone by.  The ground breaking was for the West View Green House Homes project Members of West View’s administration decided to duplicate the ground breaking ceremony from 1964 by breaking the ground with mules. Just as in 1964 a team of mules broke ground.  The Mules used to break ground Thursday are named Ruth and Rose and owned by Kenny Ball.

Ozark Action West Plains Missouri

When Ozark Action approached us there was a problem.  Although they had a web developer build their site this web developer was rarely available to make needed updates.  We enjoy helping local community services stay up and running but a new site was not in the budget.  Ozark Action help those in need find help with all kinds of things like electric bills, heating, cooling, weatherization, community projects, housing, and head start programs.  It was a shame to see that their web sites annual report was more than 2 years old.  Also Ozark Action provides many jobs in the area, jobs that were impossible to post on their website.  Enter Suit7, we kept the old site and found all source code files then brought their site up to date.  Since then we are happy to say that anytime a update is needed one of the staff at Suit7 makes the required updates with in 48 hours.  Ozark Action provides vital community services to our home area and we are very pleased with the opportunity to help keep their web site running and up to date.

Adding Audio Player to WordPress and Web Pages

Recently when working with a Custom RSS Reader app feeding from a WordPress installation we realized that rss readers didn’t like WordPress audio plugin shortcodes or WordPress’s media player. All we would get in our reader app was blank boxes or a non styled button that opened a browser window, taking our users from the app.  After testing a few plugins and reading their documentation we realized that we were spinning our wheels.


After stepping back we realized how to play audio in our RSS Reader App using html.  This snippet was found on http://www.w3schools.com/


That is when we decided to use the tried and true html5 language and it worked perfectly.


We used this code:

<audio controls=”controls”>
<source src=”#” type=”audio/mpeg” />


Replace the # with your audio file url.

For example the code would look like this:


<audio controls=”controls”>

<source src=”your_media_file.mp3″ type=”audio/mpeg” />



The audio file must be in .mp3 format other file formats can be used but the type= must match the format used.
