Site (Re)Creation Update

Written by Kodi Wolf at 5:15 AM

The site is coming along nicely. I think I'm finally out of the testing/template creation phase, so I've moved the site out of the test directory and into what I hope will be its permanent home in /WOLFsector/. Now, I can start creating pages that will have the correct links.

One of the new bells and whistles I've added is a Google Custom Search box. I've managed to style it so it looks good on the site and it seems to be working pretty well. It finds pages on my site, anyway.

Now, other than figuring out the subscription software I have yet to install, it's mostly just a matter of (re)transferring my pages to the new design. Hopefully, this will be the last time for a long time. At least I have all the files I converted for Mambo, so I should just be able to go back and "find and replace" the relevant code and reconvert it back to what it was before (Mambo preferred 'div' tags to 'p' tags, so that's the main thing I want to change).

I have run into a new problem, though, and I'm not sure what's causing it. I'm using a JavaScript script to offer the ability to change style sheets, in case what I've designed doesn't work for people. It was working fine, but after I moved the site, it defaulted to no style sheet, instead of loading the default. I've been over the code, the links, etc., but I haven't been able to figure it out. Once you click on one of the links to set the style sheet, it works fine, but I really don't like the idea of new visitors being presented with a non-styled site until they figure out they can choose a style.

Oh well. I'm tired. I'll work on it tomorrow (or rather later tonight; my schedule is currently 'fall asleep around noon, wake up around 8pm'). It'll continue to shift until I'm back on a day schedule, at which point, if the weather is good (not rainy), I'll be able to finish painting the upper kitchen cabinet doors and start back on the house renovations. Which also means the site will probably take a backseat again, unless my wife can convince me to take breaks like I'm supposed to. Then again, working at the computer isn't exactly a break. :)
