EDIT: FINALLY got this new “news blog” style put up–what do you think? It didn’t turn out exactly like I wanted (because CSS is apparently cranky about background colors on “height: 100%;” div layers that scroll…argh). But otherwise I like it! Let me know if the background image is too busy!
Here’s what remains to do at WMWorg before I can upload v14:
- Finish and upload main domain layout
- Finish and upload network layout
- Code and upload guestbook design
- Write up v14 blurb for layout archive
Finish and upload news blog layout
Rewrite domain info page
Get new guestbook since my old one has been closed
Make new admin logo for contact page
Link-check sitemap, add new links where necessary
Make new button for v14 layout
I’m taking time with this redesign (but don’t I always? LOL)!
One reason this is taking so long is because I’m giving all the mini-sites a new look, similar to what the video games site and the British TV shows site have. (Once their redesigns are complete, I hope to not have to redesign them again for a while…whew!)
The main domain look has been pretty “set” for a while, but I actually might change a few things more before it goes live. I’ve also got to do the news blog look…and then I think (THINK) I’ll be ready to launch V14. Just trying to squish out all the air bubbles and kill all the code bugs first. XD
I swear it. These two sites I’m working on are just about top priority. Y’know, after my usual weekly work, my blog posts, and sleeping. LOL
I’ve been hard at work the last couple of months putting together a site about all my favorite British TV shows, and hopefully within the next month it will be finished! (Barring IRL illnesses, random holiday time fails, and the like. xD) Hope y’all will like it once it’s done! 😀
Apologies for my long absence; the Christmas season began before Thanksgiving over this way, and it’s been rushrushrush since. I’ve been doing a little work here and there on several fansites that I hope to bring to your screen soon, about the following subjects:
- Super Mario RPG
- Dawn Granger (DC Comics)
- British TV shows
- Tumblr layout help
It’s just been slow going, is all. Maybe there will be (GASP) updates for the new year? We can dream! 😀
Currently in the process of creating seven fully-fleshed-out sites, in addition to blogging six days a week. Yep, that’s right, SEVEN sites, and six blog posts a week. :O I think I might just be crazy. Either that, or my content bug is flying around out of control. LOL
The only thing I’m having difficulty with is my layouts for all these sites. Having content is great, but layouts have always bugged me. (Get it? Bug? xD I’m so lame. 😛 ) Hoping my webdesign bug decides to cooperate and help me make pretty layouts to go with all this great content–and soon!
I updated a couple of moved/closed fanlistings over at Captivations, and I plan to do a thorough review of all the FL links on there right before v13 goes live as well. Just want to make sure I’m linking to the right stuff! 😀
Also, I’m still working like a fiend behind the scenes of WMW.org here. I just finished a complete revamp of the Webmistress page last night, and I’m planning the same kind of revamp for the College Knowledge section as well, because I’m not really satisfied with the page layout in that section right now–it feels kinda cramped.
All that remains to be done, after the College Knowledge revamp, is to debug all the layouts (WMW.org itself, FL page, news blog, network, links), make sure they run in all the main browser types, and then–joy of joys!–v13 will be uploaded! *happy squee dance* 😀 Now here’s hoping I can actually DO this before June ends. LOL
After a 10-month wait, I’ve finally been able to move ahead with backend code and frontend design for WMW.org, as well as the look for the update blog. Now I just have to finish coding the fanlistings page and come up with design and code for the links page…LOL
Really enjoying getting back into web design. I didn’t realize how stifled I felt until I got a hard drive I could actually keep saving and re-saving to without fear of losing data. 😀 (But I’ll never let a hard drive failure catch me off-guard again–I’ve got a big external hard drive and 3 flash drives as backups now.)
Anyhow, keep your browsers tuned to WMW.org in the next month or so–v13 will be a big (and cool) change when it comes!
While the loss of a year and a half of data is staggering, I am nevertheless working on Version 13’s designs for my domain, joined fanlistings, network, and network update blog (this thingamabob right here). Let’s just say that the new designs are…markedly different from version 12, but I believe it’s different in a good way.
Also, since I lost all of the data regarding Lux Perpetua (my Dove II fansite), I’m going to have to rebuild it from scratch. ;_; That is not cool, dude. At least I hadn’t scanned in but 5 issues… *sigh* But all my essays are gone, too–I’ll have to rewrite them all, and pray I remember all the content. Double ;_; .
And lastly, on a more positive note, I looking at possibly re-uploading some of my old-as-dirt anime and gaming shrines, in a kind of archival mode. (Since the last time I dealt with any of that stuff was back in 2008, the files from my June 2010 hard drive should still include those old site files.) I’ll probably edit the content down some so my rabid fangirlism isn’t as evident, but it would be nice to at least acknowledge my roots in webdesign. Who knows, I might even give each of the sites a fresh new design along the way. (Or I might just be lazy and upload them as-is. LOL)
Found this website, thanks to browsing around several other domains who had “radios” on their sites. It looks pretty sweet–I’ll have to figure out how to work it, but I’m closer to the dream of a listen-able radio on WMW.org than ever. WOOT WOOT WOOT
[off topic] No news yet about my dead/fried hard drive. :c Still praying!
