Those coding tidbits that drive you crazy

So I’ve had Star Trek RPG coded and open since March. Now it’s a fabulous looking website and it’s smooth fix width layout. Gorgeous. The pink version is my favorite.

Now that’ all fine and dandy but I browse my website from mobile devices and this has been driving me crazy! Like nutters beyond my normal insanity… On the post page (and only on pages with posts) there is something that makes the 1100px width larger, specifically on the right hand side. (BTW I figured it out about here in writing this). It looks like there is a 1300 pixel margin but it’s only on the right. My mobile devices do it too and I haven’t been able to figure it out.

Now this was going to be a plea for someone to help me figure it out but I went and click a few buttons to see if I could figure it out. Now with that clicking I found a new thing in the built in Firefox for inspecting code. It’s this cool 3D thing to show me the layers in my website. Well turning that on it showed me the element that was causing it (it was a conflict in a width of an element I shrunk manually for the post screen) and have since fixed it.

So what is the moral to this story? Click new buttons.

Photo Gallery

Alright! So I wanted a Photo-Gallery to put pictures, organize them and all that jazz. I have found a very nice one I think. It is called Zenphoto. It looks really nice and it has a layout that I think I can mess with adequately. I am going to install it here in a little while and see how I like it. From the demo I think it is going to be perfect! It looks very clean and exactly what I want. It will take some effort on my part because I like to text my pictures and its difficult to find a software that will do that but it’s okay. I will have fun doing it I’m sure. ^_^

Since I’m uploading the gallery today I will be working on the layout so the splash page is being postponed. Not that bad because I still have to make all of the icons for the splash page so that means I have to figure out which ones I want to link to on my Spalash page. Most likely all of my links here on the right will be added.

Coming soon!! I am going to be making my pages of, Reasons why I love my friends, and I will also be adding some of my favorite site that I like to frequent. Soon you should be seeing Links to DA, Twitter and Facebook appear as image links.

I would also like to apologize for the ads but maintaining so many websites is getting a bit overwhelming financially so I’m hoping it will help offset the cost a little. I <3 you guys. Now time to make lunch, spend time with my chicklins and then put them down for a nap. After that I might be able to work on the Zenphoto gallery. ^_^

Feeling slightly accomplished

So last night, after my children went to bed, I went to work on my main splash page for Morrigan’s Madness. I haven’t thought of all the links yet but I finished the main image and plan on making little trinket danglies that maybe spin when you hover over them. Currently the links that I know I need are one to here and one to DA. I’m thinking about making a gallery page for pictures of me and then I will need to make links for my other sites, like Faerie-Reverie, Cheesy Genius, and Wootflakes. Not sure how I want to link my brother’s and my mum’s site. I also might make a secret link that shows me naked….. j/k. I wouldn’t want to scar you guys like that.

So today’s agenda? Play with the chicklins, work on websites and clean…. Hmmmm, I think this is startingg to become a routine. Maybe I should change it up by adding in something different…. Like……. Going outside to jump in puddle with my daughter. Yus, I might just do that. ^_^

Have a good day everyone. I will update later.
