Testing out forms, glyphs today, and whatever else I can post into the “add new post section. Continue reading
I constantly get sidetracked here at work. There are lots of last-minute, emergency power points that end up taking priority. As a matter of fact, building this site originated from one of them.
After our website was created by figmints, we were left with lots of errors. Images didn’t load or size correctly, dynamic functionality was missing, even areas of our website with “submit” messages were missing entire lengths of code to actually send the information to a website or email address. I definitely wouldn’t recommend them for large global projects.
Still Working at it. Ended up having a lot of issues with Go Daddy support. I have decided that when the contract for hosting is up, I will be switching to something a bit more robust for developers.
Besides that, I also switched manuals. Originally I was reading through the Headfirst manual. However, I kept running into issues where the book would claim certain HTML IDs and classes could be found in the .css files and I couldn’t find them with the search commands in Sublime Text 2. I took a look at the contents page and realized the book is about 4 years old, and there was no support information to be found online. Some reviews of the book on amazon.com also reinforced the issues I had.
Now, I’m using “Word Press: the missing manual”. This one is already better suited as it has general knowledge, rather than asking for specific changes in CSS or HTML files (it also notes changes in version numbers).
I’m learning about WP, piece by piece, so I can setup my company’s website. Hopefully this goes well. I’ve already encountered issues with the admin controls on the back end of Go Daddy. Apparently the permissions they has setup on my site were denying a PW access. I had to call them and have them fix the issue. Good to go now. POST#1!
