As of right now I am pausing all posting on this blog until January 1st 2013, because I have to study for my maths exam, (failed it once, aint playing the fool again), and when I would have finished that I would be transferring my computer to the Linux side, I would have done it already but I am still working on a website, that I am trying to finish by Christmas of this year.
So with that said,
Happy Holidays from me to you
As I am writing up this post my eyes are slowly closing down on me from severe lack of sleep. The NBC SVG website codenamed (blog site) went up this weekend, and the one thing I am thankful for is that I wasn’t building the site alone, it was a partnership setup so, I had to hand it over to my partner to make the final changes.
this is what the completed site looks like, there might be some changes in the future but nothing over the top
In my current state, I can tell you that you should never give up those sweet 8 hrs of sleep, trust me.
So I am taking this week “off”, well not really, I would be taking it light, as I have the final designs to submit for the iCandy website, and I was thinking about building the site from scratch, (to give myself bragging rights), and I have that truckload of movie reviews to flood this blog with, as well.
One last thing before I go, at the end of the year, I will be moving to Linux, completely, I have no other choice as my computer is too slow to keep up in windows 7 and the majority of my programs with the exception of the creative cloud are supported or have better replacements. So 2014 is looking to be very interesting
So, after doing some serious thought, I realized that It takes extremely long to get all 30+ designs, for the monthly inspiration pack, so I’m returning it to its regular weekly format.
I am moving the Quote of the Week to Sunday, to go along with the now Weekly Inspirations. The movie reviews therefore would be posted on Monday, but I will write them up on Sunday.
Hey, just giving you the latest updates on the web design projects I am working on.
By the date in the header you can already guess that the blogging site I was working on is finished, met with the company on Wednesday and they wanted membership functionality added in as well, so that was all that I had to do. As you know BuddyPress and I have a history (not a good one) but this time everything went so smoothly that I was almost scared. The only challenge I came across mainly out of stubborn idiocy, was that S2member was the only plugin that effectively subscribers from seeing the WordPress back-end.
But here’s the kicker when you mix Theme My Login and S2Member, S2Member breaks some of the styles, which if you had activated all the plugins at once, would have been impossible to pick up (trust me on this one),
so here’s the fix that you just plug into you
functions.php file to fix it
// S2Member fix for Theme My Login
So now the only thing left for me to do, is bring over their old posts, which is going to take a while because they were using standard HTML before (god help me), and to put in their streaming codes, and I am done.
here’s a live demo of the site: Live Demo
The other site, that would be a custom project from the ground up, so I am going to be learning a lot on the ins and outs of WordPress theming as well as advanced css and less
