New Layout!

Posted on 29-11-2014 | Tags: , , ,

Hello guys, as you may have noticed, I have given the site a big revamp! This is scheduled for Sunday morning because I was up at 3am fixing it, which is way too late for an update.

Basically cleaned up the code and made everything a little more modern… I really liked the old layout but I think this is easier to read with the nicer and bigger font Clearly, it has a lot of the elements of the old layout… like the scalloped edges ’cause I love scalloped edges and I need my twitter & Youtube Channel Header to all match up somehow.

This layout took me ages because it’s like 90% code, rather than images, because I wanted to practice my coding again. Big thank you to my brother for helping me out with the code when it didn’t want to do what I wanted it to.

I’ve also added a new page with my videos on it, a much needed update. You can click on it and watch the videos straight from the site if you want, remember to ‘thumbs up’ if you liked the video though!

So that was my Saturday LOL. I actually have so many things I want to do this holidays, so I’m glad to tick this off the list of stuff to do. Tomorrow I’m hoping to film a video and maybe make a move on in regards to my Google Adwords Certificate

PHP includes are a little snippet of code which basically “includes” another page onto the page where you place this code! It’s very useful for basic webdesign, because it allows you to easily change your layout without having to edit every single file on your website.

Posted on 20-02-2010

So, as promised, I’m going to do a quick review on 3 popular content management/blogging tools that can be installed on websites such as mine. For those that don’t know, blogging systems such as these are like control panels that help you easily update your website and blog- without worrying too much about HTML and formatting; all these systems allow users to comment on posts. I’ve tried various publishing software, and have found downsides as well as upsides to each- so here are the pros and cons, and recommendations about each one.

How to Add Favicons

Posted on 19-02-2010

A Favicon is the little icon displayed in the browser next to the URL of a website.

You can add your own, but it has to be a particular image type, a favicon is a ’16×16′ image, in ‘.ico’ format. Your image editing program may or may not support this type of image, if it doesn’t, you can just save it as another image type, and then convert it to ‘.ico’. You can use the Dynamic Drive Favicon Generator to convert your images into favicons.

Once you have your favicon icon, you need to upload it to your website, and the following bit of code to the section of your website.

Now, you should see your image next to the URL of your website!
