Latest "New Thing" You've Added to Your Site?

Post by youngsterj4y »

From a coding perspective;
I love to learn new things I can do with HTML/CSS! Recently I made tiny little draggable windows, for example, and figured out how to make it have buttons to minimize and close! I was so proud of myself even if I mostly just copied code. haha. I'm just wondering what new tricks and features you've all learned to do with html/css/javascript/whatever. A guy in my tech class has been teaching himself game dev in unity and it's been fun to watch him mess with collision variables.

It’s always fun to learn something new! Recently I added a search bar to my site. It’s a very simple Javascript code snippet that only returns results that match what was typed, and only works for content in the page it’s in, but I still like it a lot. Maybe in the future I’ll learn how to make it search the whole website, or make Boolean searching possible!
I have not thought of a cool signature yet! :P

A "New Tab" page I adopted from a fellow Neocitizen named Zero: https://techramancer.com/sp/start.html

Made some tweaks by adding a search bar that searchs via DuckDuckGo, the code of which I adopted from WebOas.is (now defunct due to the passing of the creator Webby), though it exists in copies as he requested such as https://weboasis.digital/

I FINALLY garnered the courage to add JavaScript to my site, there's a button in the top left corner that takes you to the beggining, and i intended for it to work just as it does in Windows XP, changing how it looks based on if it's being clicked or hovered over, i tried using CSS for that, but it ended up being glitchy (you had to click that twice for the other two buttons to load)

I'm glad i finally figured out what to do, and seeing the website work (almost) flawlessly is cathartic ngl :)

I used to have a chatbox on my front page, but I noticed it attracted a lot of spammers and bad actors. I didn't want to remove it entirely, because I love having a little interaction like that on my site, and plus, not all of it was negative.

A solution I came up with was to move the chatbox to its own page - but create a design that was super cute and wholesome to kind of encourage that sort of vibe. I themed it like a cat cafe with soft creamy colors and lots of cat related gifs. It's been up for a few weeks now, and I think it's serving its purpose! Trolls still stop by, but overall I think it's encouraged people to be a little more positive. Plus just being off of my front page is a little bit of a troll-filter. :)

Inspired by the concept of a virtual sitcker album and the site mystickerwall.com , I decided to make mini project about going outside and taking photos of anycool sticker art I find and document them on my page, with a link to their original creators if possible since some of these are used by people to promote their art/services.

I haven't added yet, but I plan on soon

I'm on the verge of deploying a new layout & design for 2023.

I'm excited to incorporate a new method of collecting metadata for books, music, articles and other things and automating creating seasonal posts for them.

I can't wait to share when it's done.

i just added a "latest post" column to the forums on the homepage just like this site does. i find myself clicking on threads from those links a lot, so it's probably a good way to get more people to read different threads

I added a page with my personally drawn adoptables for people to take home (shall they want to). They have a quite personal common theme as you will see if you decide to visit.

I have yet to finish the page with adopts I collected from others' sites though...

It's a special interest of mine, so I wanted to make a brief page about it!

Today I have updated the navigation section of my website, so in the mobile version you can expand and close it to conserve plenty of space.

I also gave the entries in the main dream index descriptions to give readers an idea of what each entry is about.

nice looks good! i would make the menu a <button /> instead of an <a /> since it's not a link and makes more sense to people using screen readers

i'd also move all your <script /> tags before the closing <body /> otherwise, the markup on the page will have to wait until the javascript finishes to render the rest of the page, which means people with slower internet connections will have to wait longer to see everything on the page

I understand the first part, I can turn it into a button with absolute ease. But if I move the script part to the bottom of the closing body tag, then the navigation would be located at the bottom of the footer. Is there a solution to this problem?

ah yeah so the problem is that the script is written in a way that's it's dependent on where it loads

i'd delete the part of that script that's writing html and just write it straight into your markup

Code: Select all

    <nav>
        <a id='burger' onclick='navigation()'>MENU</a>
        <ul id='nav'>
            <li><a href="./index.html">Home</a></li> 
            <li><a href="./dreams/index.html">Dreams</a></li> 
            <li><a href="./about.html">About</a></li> 
            <li><a href="./links.html">Links</a></li> 
        </ul>
    </nav>
and then just keep only this bit in your script and then you can safely move it right above the closing body tag

Code: Select all

function navigation() {
  var n = document.getElementById("nav");
  if (n.style.display === "block") {
    n.style.display = "none";
  } else {
    n.style.display = "block";
  }
}

fascinated, lately, with the idea of internal corporate web tools. plenty of businesses have loads of technical debt, and these things are typically the last things the boss wants you to spend time updating. if it works, why bother? except the boss doesn't use it, and by "working", well, until some browser update breaks the 1.x version of jquery it was designed with in 2009. i have a soft spot for the aesthetic, despite the handwringing i do at my dayjob with these kinds of things.

here's my hand at trying something like that:

A custom dress up game with an entry page! When I think of the old net, my fondest memory is definitely of the dress up games and such that were so much more common back then! Its my first attempt at something so complicated, but I'm very proud of it.

From here, I'll probably try and expand the game more? Drawing each item takes a while... And beyond even that, I'd like to make a more mobile compatible version of this game, with a UI instead. That definitely will take a while... :?

I mostly tweaked my homepage and replaced the code for the slideshow on the right. (And got rid of a few images. Now there's only 5 instead of 8 or 9.)
