Advice on How to Properly Setup an Expandable Website? (Designing Phase)


Recommended Posts

    Well while I am trying to tackle HTML5, CSS, CSS Grid, CSS Flexbox and a few Java tricks; I am also learning how to use a web editor called 'Visual Studio Code', and the webbing features of both Goggle's Chrome web browser and those of Firefox. I have been knee-deep sorting-out how to integrate all these various codes, into a viable working coding structuring. Truthfully it is currently a bit of a kick in the balls right now. But I believe I'm muddling through the fog well enough, and I do love puzzles and challenges. I prefer a good old fashion brain-teaser, over a silly video game anytime. So I decided it is now time to increase the workload as to avoid reasoning-stagnation, writer's block and the dreaded intellectual-laziness. Plus it is a great time to start preparations on the begin the build of the forum site. I will use the WordPress interface provided by BlueHost, to build the forum site.

 

     Presently I already have a sizable body of written work completed, just waiting to be uploaded onto a WordPress forum site. So it now makes far more sense to begin working on both projects. Continue working on the website coding and start working on building on the forum site. After all the end-goals are actually the same. Through simultaneously working on both projects, should in theory result in both projects being completed faster and launched sooner. The reality is that the main body of written work, must first be completed and posted onto the forum site. It is after all where most of articles will be chosen, and then linked to the website. Sort of the whole 'chicken or the egg' thingie. So the forum site must actually be completed and operational first. And as the forum site is the larger of the two projects, due to the time required uploading and completing articles, thread posts, etc. There will be plenty of time working on and perfecting the website code. 

 

    So probably by this weekend this thread will expand to cover both the building of a website and a forum site. This should spice-up the thread a bit...

Honestly I think you are setting yourself up for nightmares when there are better ways. Knock yourself out and remember, who wants to look at images all day?

   In the end you may very well be correct, but my driven nature (anal-retentive obsessive) needs to know. I need to know if building a 3-screen row viewer array is even possible? With CSS Grid in combination with Java Script it seems quite possible. I already found a working example of the Java Script code, building the very same style of single-screen viewer I had envisioned. It looks clean and simple just as I wanted, and easy to add or remove imaged when ever needed, This would not be true if working with slideshow videos, and have far quicker upload speeds.

If you look at the last minute or so you can skip the code and just watch how the viewer functions. Now it is merely a question if three such Java code scrips can be placed side-by-side on a single CSS Grid Track? It certainly seems possible now with CSS Grid. Now if it proves successful as to function, than I am happy enough as I will finally know. If it proves to be a cool web feature than that is great. But if it proves to be ugly as sin and useless as tits on a bull as you predict, that is cool too as either outcome allows me to at least know. Failures add to the learning-curb, as I can just adapt, adjust and move on. I value your remarks and comments on this project chief.

"but my driven nature (anal-retentive obsessive) needs to know"?  Dang Gunny, I didn't know that you're becoming PC.  But I get your drift.  After all, this is a PG rating forum and you must place your weapon on safety.  What you meant to say is --- FU#@@&XXX/><!!!$#%!

Now is probably a good time to set up a poll to see who likes sites with slides and who doesn't. As a side does each slide use a viewer's data when it changes? Filipinos are famous for having no data so maybe you're targeting a different audience.
