Any web developers have a great resource for accessible color palettes?

Getting proper contrast on one or two colors isn't to hard to do but 8 colors... yikes.

Didnt know of any, but I found this one : http://accessibility.oit.ncsu.edu/tools/color-contrast/ Looks pretty helpful as is can compare and analyse any colour combination you give it. If you found any other please share.

There are a couple of color scheme generators out there, and don't forget the W3C spec. I can get some links later when not on a phone.

We're running into some issues with trying to remove/hide pages from SharePoint 2010 (public facing site).
We can easily hide pages from the navigation and remove all the links we know about - but there's still the possibility of other people linking to it still.
We can also delete the pages but often they're pages we want to keep for safekeeping as the program or information may become needed in six months to a year.
We haven't yet found a solid solution. Has anyone else? Does this get any better in SP 2013?

+Marc Wenning that sounds like what I would expect - but our team said that wasn't doable. Wonder if they've restricted it for some reason. I'll probably tick them off by checking it on my own. :-)

The reason so many miss the point of the Good Samaritan Story
Let’s take a look at a familiar story from the Bible, shall we? How about the story about the Good Samaritan? Because everybody knows that one. It’s about the importance of helping people who are in trouble, right? You could make it about that. And that might be helpful. But you’d be missing the point of the story. Most people completely miss the point of the story.  Here’s why: Jesus tells this story (It’s in Luke 10) in response to a questi...

Curious to hear everyone's input -
I've been charged with coming up with an interactive mapping solution for our CEO so he can display demographic data, unemployment numbers, etc. etc. with just a few clicks/swipes on either a large touchscreen TV/panel or on a large TV tied to a tablet device.
I'm pretty sure ESRI/ArcGIS is the way to go but wondering if a Web App or Presentation will be the best option to be sure he has it as accessible as possible without any issues or hick-ups.

The 'ESRI Insights' app allows you to view demographic information for a specific location or region that you specify.  You can also quickly generate reports.  Its a pretty simple app, but it gets the job done and is easy to use.  Of course, this will require and arcgis online organizational account with named users and credits but would require no programming or data of your own.  Just a thought, good luck!

I've been operating under the impression that Section 508 says online videos should be captioned and have transcripts as well.
However, now that someone's asked for documentation I can't seem to find it. Am I dreaming up the requirement or am I simply missing the documentation now?

What's everyones thoughts on using SharePoint for public facing website in the next 5 years or so?
Sounds like they're moving more and more to the cloud and making it hard to customize things.

+Jonathan Blundell the Azure Cloud allows you to run Virtual Machines as well, this may be the reason why your backend guy is not worrying. 

Sharepoint as far as I know will still be an on-premise solution too, not only a Web Service published on the Internet as Office 365, so your application specialists will be able to install it in the Cloud and migrate your data and customizations.

Trying to upload photos from the G+ mobile app tonight and less than half are uploading. The rest show a black box with a refresh circle I'm the middle. Maybe third times a charm??

I've posted this before but never received a response so thought I'd try again.

I'm curious about how Best Bets work in SP 2010 search.

Do they only appear if the exact phrase is used?

It seems like we have a Best Bet for job and jobs but if you search "job openings​" or "jobs at DCCCD" there's no Best Bet.

Is that how the system is made to work, or is there a setting we could change to look for any words within the search?
