Layout, whee! Now, some things are still not working as well as they could be. I'm still going through and finding little things that need fixing, like titles on pages in subfolders. But I wanted to get something up today since it is the first of October! Gawd, 17 years. That's a little scary to think about. If you do find a site that looks weird, feel free to contact me about it, though I likely already know and it's on my list. Oh, speaking of lists, the to-do will also be getting updated at the end of the month. Knocking as many things off as I can!
Anyways, I'm actually still debating if I want a sidebar, as I've moved the navigation to the top. Originally, it was going to be the 'latest' of media and computer stuff, but honestly, with nothing new coming in, that seems rather pointless. Maybe I'll switch it over to a 'random' instead, kinda give other things a shot in the sun.
Croik's essay is still being converted; my focus has been on the layout and fixing ALLLLLLLLLLL the coding mistakes I've made over the years! So that's being done, as well as transferring the fanfics to a database to make it easier to load them. Less pages to have to deal with in the future. So, lots to do, I'll do my best to get everything squared away by the end of the month. Here's hoping there's another few years in this baby! ^^
.....I may have bitten off more than I can chew!
See, I'm going through fixing many of the poor coding errors I've made over the years, as well as trying to simplify my file structure. To help with this, I figured now is a good time to enter all of the fanfics into a database. All of them. *headdesk* But I'm determined to do this right this time around, which will make it easier to update in the future!
I'm imposing an October deadline to get everything at least functional, even if I don't have any of the extra stuff up like I wanted. Granted, it's not a round number, but given that I always celebrated the site anniversary in October, I figure that's a good time to hit refresh.
I FOUND MY DATABASE BACKUPS!
Ok, yeah, they need work. I have to finish adding the gallery pictures. But this won't take nearly as long as I was afraid it would! And, one of the classes I'll be taking is in MySQL, so I will hopefully know to build them better and make improvements later. Priority now is just to get everything going!
