Next version preview pt.2 – Customizable client fields

With release of new version we will introduce new feature to HostBill – customizable client fields. During signup client will pick his profile type – Private profile or Company profile – as an administrator you’ll be able to configure which fields need to be displayed for each type of customer, you also will be able to set those fields required or not, to be displayed on client invoice or not. You will be able to define your own custom fields – lets say you operate in European Union and wants your commercial customers to provide their VAT number during signup – nothing simplier with HostBill! Take a look at screenshots and see by yourself.

Webdeveloper musthave – Zen Coding

This post will not be directly related to HostBill itself – but hey – its developers blog! 😉

I’ve recently stumbled upon great tool called Zen Coding – if you’re using HTML in your everyday work – this little fellow can save you a LOT of time – just requires some practice, for ex:

div#page>div.logo+ul#navigation>li*3>a

will be expanded into:

<div id="page">
        <div class="logo"></div>
        <ul id="navigation">
                <li><a href=""></a></li>
                <li><a href=""></a></li>
                <li><a href=""></a></li>                
        </ul>
</div>

Make sure to see it in action:
