Will continue editing this list as I go, until it’s finished.
- Give the damn thing a name! - DONE
Maybe work on that header text; see if there are other fancy CSS3 features that could make it look better. DONE - Add a menu bar with drop-down for cities. DONE - Flickr section: display actual images (not thumbnails) so they can be made bigger, and into clickable links. Work on the sizing, see if possible to get all landscape/portrait only. DONE - Do I want Twitter section smaller? DONE - Gigs: work out how to lessen number of words in description of each item. DONE - WHY THE HELL IS TWITTER RETURNING RANDOM SPAM AND YOUTUBE RETURNING FOREIGN SOCCER MATCHES? Stupid Pipes…URGH
Youtube: make identical to Flickr (larger preview images and clickable to go to video). Decided to just embed two videos. Much easier, no time to do something more complex. DONE - Make sure all pipes are returning relevant items. Done, except for Twitter which still returns no results sometimes. DONE(SORTA) - Find out how to style scrollbars? This looks hard…TOO HARD BASKET! - Add a footer with credits. DONE - Make an About page. DONE - Final check for style, make sure everything looks right. DONE - Backup plan for the background image. DEEMED UNNECESSARY - The most time-consuming step: once it’s all done, copy this page 7 times and alter slightly for all the other state capitals. Do the same for Pipes (that’s a lot of pipes!). Link them all together in their menu bars. OR find a better way? DID 4 CITIES ONLY, TOOK FOREVER - Host everything. DONE
- Tumblr! (inc. Progress Reporting tag)
