Website Developments

16 02 2012

Ugh, well I know I’ve been working on my website for the last I don’t know HOW many years and I still feel it’s not finished, despite that fact that I keep putting new images on there, I’ve decided I need to re-write it!!!!!

Yes, I know.

It’s just that I’ve been messing around with iPad and iPhone HTML hooks and to achieve what I would like to achieve with these devices necessitates are rewrite.

It’s not all downhill. I’m going to utilise as much from the existing site as I can and don’t think much visually from a desktop browser view point will change. I think it’s going to be more of a background, mechanical change.

Having said that, I’ve now forked the existing site and started coding again.

Mins’t, website should be a continuously evolving and morphing medium. Well, I think so anyway.

Grumblings of a web developer

27 08 2010

Well its taken quite a while and a lot of slow methodic gentle developing but I think I’ve finally got my website into some kind of semblance. The design has had small incremental changes but last night early morning had a total rewrite and you know what its starting to look something like.

Now it’s not a flash (perish the thought) or flashy javascript bonanza but a ground roots simple html/css website – well it should be…

As I’m Mac based (and have been since ’88) I use Safari and Firefox to do the majority of testing to make sure it works, so far so good, but then comes that major, MAJOR thorn in the side of every (proper) web dev, IE 6,7 and 8. Well what can I say:- it don’t work.

For such a simple website you’d think that everything would be hunky-dory but nooooo, if only it was so simple.

Well for the time being, if you want to look at it properly use Safari, Firefox, even Chrome, but the buggy pain in the r£@r IE (at least 6 or 7) just forget it for now.

I know there are people using these browser because my google analytics shows me they are. On the plus side at least its advancing, if somewhat at a snails pace.

My good friend John’s website after its redesign has started to see a good amount of regular traffic and he’s been producing some great model portfolios.

Grumblings over for now!


What’s up with the Website????

25 05 2010

Well work has been stalled lately for my other website steve barnett photography while I finished of my first year at Uni.

As that’s all over and done with now till September I should be able to put some more hours back into getting more photos uploaded and it finished off. It’s mostly the navigation bar that’s looking somewhat not complete so as soon as I can, it’ll be done.

Keep checking back to see its progress.
