Jan.28.2013 Site Update
posted Tuesday Jan.29.2013 01:59 am

So this is the first time I've ever been able to make a site update post without having to go into the archives and log into the old forum and make the update as a post. It's very nice to have one uniform way of adding content now.

Earlier today I tracked down and fixed several bugs in the content viewer. I also crafted some missing code so now individual site updates from the past can be viewed.

I've also begun a redesign of the home page and did some behind the scenes work on AMProLand. Might have something to show soon with both of those projects.

That's it for now.
Speaking of Javascript
posted Thursday Jan.17.2013 01:55 am

two minor (but very nice) site upgrades are

* I figured out how to use Javascript to maximize the viewer window for playing videos. I have no idea how it will look on a super high resolution wide screen monitor, but it looks pretty good on my monitor.

* I have managed to start assembling open graph tags on most of the content. So any system that uses opengraph (mostly facebook for now) can display content properly when I share content from the website.

Now I'm in the process of extricating the last of the Simple Machines Forum from the info section of the current website. That is the last bit of code that I haven't written myself in use on the website so now the new version of the website will be all my code.

till next update,

A long time ago I decided I didn't want to learn Javascript because there's only so much brainspace in a person's head, and mine is full of too many different programming languages already.  But over the years I kept coming up against the limitation of not being able to do client side type things and that's what one would learn Javascript for. 

Last weekend after a brief flirtation with installing jquery I decided to finally bite the bullet and start learning to code some Javascript.  Now, a week later, two things that I've been wanting to happen for a while are finally happening thanks to Javascript coding. 

1.  The gallery section is finally coming together.  Visitors can flip through pictures in the gallery without having to refresh the whole page.  I rather like that.

2. The Where2GoOnline.com report has alternate views now.  Instead of being stuck looking at the most recent links, you can flip to the most viewed links or the oldest links.  And I can spread that to the rest of the website and establish more views after there are enough links on there for it to make sense to do so. 

So that's one huge step in the process of things coming together.  My brain hurts from too much coding in too many different languages.  But that's the breaks I guess.
