Site Updates and Web Tutorials

Now that I have been able to add a little bit of functionality I guess it’s time for a more formal and official update. I do have a functioning comment system now so anyone reading my site can let me know what they think, throw in their 2 cents and even give me some ideas for changes. I also threw in a little javascript to help with showing/hiding my latest articles and comments, let me know what you think about that and if perhaps you would prefer seeing all of the latest entries in one page or anything else. I will add an archive functionality once I add enough entries to the site so that ones that do not appear under newest content can still be accessed and read by anyone who so desires. I have also converted most of the site over to PHP, although it cannot really be seen, it helps to get everything out of a database rather than hard coding it every time. For now I am working on getting the “About Me” and “Contact” pages up and running, just trying to for myself to sit down and fill in the content. It shouldn’t be much longer for basic versions of those pages, maybe later tonight or over the next couple of days. Then after that’s up I will probably work on integrating some color and cleaning up some of the css I am currently using.

The other thing I wanted to share were the resources I found and used to help me learn what I needed to know in order to get this site up and running, and ones I still use for reference purposes on a somewhat regular basis.

CSS:

PHP and MySQL:

Javascript:

  • I’m not really doing anything fancy with this right now, I already know a bunch of programming languages and so this one isn’t much different, I will update on this if I end up doing anything interesting with it in the future.

Well, that’s all I have for now, soon I will probably throw up an entry that talks about what kind of software I use, maybe turn that into a separate page of its own, please comment and let me know what you think, also toss out some ideas that I can work on.

Oh ya, I just checked my Google Index and I am already the 1st entry on the second page (if you google "Joshua Daigle", 1st overall with no space), pretty good for only a week old sign up.

Looking pretty good so far. I like the layout. I'm still not hooked on the links menu, doesn't seem to flow right. I agree with Sunny, you should get an RSS feed up. It is really easy to do so it shouldn't take you long to figure it out. Looking forward to some more updates.
