Web Dev

Here I will discuss the stylistic and organizational choices that I have made with my website during my ongoing process of website development. I know very little CSS, and while I know that I could figure it out, it was easier and much more fun to ask Ben Nitkin for help. 

Website Wish List

As I work on my website, I often think of ideas for improvements in the moment, but I don't want to detour for an hour to change them immediately. Instead, I'll keep this list until I can sit down and upgrade my site:

The Secret Menu Addition

I decided that my main manu was getting a little too full, but that it was showcasing most of my major interests and already looked really nice. So instead of adding another menu that would display on the front page, I have added the secret menu that you see here to help round out my e-Portfolio requirements. I decided to name the new section of my site Hodge Podge because it is a random assortment of things. 

The Picture Bug

As you may have noticed if we haven't fixed this yet, there is a bug in the picture display, which should look like the pictures here. However, for some reason, only one picture is displaying, and the buttons to switch to different pictures are not. Additionally, the pictures are not staying within the article block. This is going to take some more work. 

Going Through the Long Overhaul

Today, my site went through some major overhauls. Ben looked at my design, and decided that he should start with the CSS, or the Cascading Style Sheets, from his website because I wanted many of the curved objects that he uses on his website. The first results were hilarious, with ugly matchings of color going every which way, and elements not lining up. However, over the course of a few hours and lots of exchanges about design choices, my site started to fall into place.

I've had this website for a little more than a year, and I think it is time for a makeover...
