Was given the idea to track the drops of creatures so we have a droprate
Taking a look at an old post and refining.
Merged data from wiki and manual files to database
Added favicon, icon to log posts
Opened two stores on Zazzle and DESIGNEDBYHUMANS. Added merchandise from previous graphics projects to stores.
Redid About page.
Reopened website project. Began a new workflow using Lucid Flow. Currently hatwood.net is on version 0.1.5. Working on changing legibility of spawn markers and labels, merging information (graphical, database, and wiki), site cleanup. Version 1.0 will have a completed set of spawn maps, updated database, art section with Eternal Lands related art I've done, an updated about section, and a more concise log of progress.
I have been looking around for tools to help with making websites mobile friendly/responsive. After chatting about it in LNX, J0wn convinced me to use Bootstrap. I've seen the name thrown around a lot on developer forums and have looked into it before but not seriously. I began by reading the documentation.
Codecademy has several website projects that ease you into Bootstrap, and I've done several classes now through Codecademy, so that's where I'm starting. w3Schools also has a tutorial. I haven't decided yet how I want to approach incorporating Bootstrap to the page... Do I want to try to add it to my existing site, or should I rip the site apart again and begin fresh? Considering I designed the page from a desktop starting point, this approach seems to clash with the mobile-first design of Bootstrap.
While I work through these projects, I'll think about it. I don't really mind ripping the site apart again. Practice makes better!
I'm hoping to finish a simple interface for adding new posts tonight, and do some re-arranging of the blog tomorrow. I'd like the date to be more human-friendly and to the left of the post in a separate column. I would also like to have a thumbnail associated with posts below the title with the content wrapping on the right, and I would like a navigation list on the right with posts by date and posts by tag. Of course, this also requires me to add tags to a table in my database... Never ending to-do list is never ending.
I need to add more elements to the blog, like a date and title elements for each post. I also need to add the background to its own div so I can have curved corners on the bottom to echo the top. It's too late tonight (1am), so I'm going to forget about it for now. Tomorrow is another day!
Very happy with my progress for today.
I bought my domain today to start my own website. Yay!
A while ago, I noticed a lack of information regarding Haidir spawn locations, so I thought I would share my spawn locations. Then I wanted to learn HTML5/CSS3, so I began a website on a free domain, which was really spammy. It wasn't long until I decided to buy my own domain and hosting so I wouldn't have to worry about popups. I am excited to see where my project takes me.
