WordPress Total Conversion

September 6th, 2012

Since working at Webb Design, I’ve had the opportunity to develop my web coding skills. I’ve learned a lot and had to put into practice my knowledge in javascript, PHP, and MySQL. I’ve gotten the chance to dabble in AJAX (mostly just basic forms) and have gotten even more familiar with WordPress.

Previously, this website only had WordPress installed for the “News” page. I’ve now fully converted this entire website over to WordPress. All previous pages are now WordPress pages and these news posts are still normal WordPress posts. I’m using custom post types for the Projects and Portfolio sections with the addition of custom taxonomies for portfolio entries. With the help of WPAlchemy Metaboxes, I was able to fully customize my WordPress interface.

Although I could have coded all this functionality by hand, I’ve done all this so that my website is easier to manage. The time I’m saving having to code my website, I can now use to concentrate more on updating my online portfolio more regularly.

I believe I’ve caught all dead links, but if you happen to stumble upon one, feel free to let me know!

Now (hopefully) you can look forward to more updates!

Website Internal Makeover

June 9th, 2012

I finally finished redoing my website! On the surface, everything appears to look the same. This is because I’ve updated the code of this website, not the look. Because I wasn’t keeping up to date with the best web coding practices, I was still using tables to lay out my website. Now, I’ve rewritten it so that it’s using a template I made with PHP ,updated the structure to use  a series of DIV boxes instead of tables, and modified my html to use CSS more efficiently.

To illustrate how much cleaner the code is, I’ve taken a screenshot of how my website looked before and after my code makeover using the 3D View in the Inspector in Firefox (versions 11 and newer). You can see the difference between how much I’ve reduced the layers of code.

I’ve also restructured the file hierarchy of my site, so there might be some dead links lurking about. Please let me know if you find any!
