Hand in

The hand in day is tomorrow. The boxes are implemented and seem to be working. I can make posts on WordPress, put them in a specific category, and the post will appear. I had some help with the PHP side of the site. It allows the website to get the WordPress post data directly from the database. It seemed to be the easiest way as Ciaran didn’t want people to reply to posts, or have dates or time stamps and such. He just wanted posts to appear, and let him edit or create new ones easily.

I used some nice looking patterns from the subtle patterns website I found a few days ago, and made the box the only part that is scrollable. There’s a dismiss button at the top of the box to get back to other pages too. Now I’m spending the rest of the night inputting most of Ciaran’s old website data ready for the hand in. I added a little footer too, in either corner of the page. Ciaran allowed me to put the “designed by Dean Wheeler” part in, which I’m happy about, but he loves how the website has turned out, and is a stark improvement to his old one.

For comparison, here’s his old website: http://kenkokan-karate.co.uk
And here’s the one I’ve done for him: http://karate.ashwick.info
