Just finished watching the first screen cast.
You have some nice great points on it.
I already mentioned that I will be getting rid of dropdowns in a next release.
I don’t find them user friendly at all.
I will replace dropdowns which is the 3rd level of navigation to visible crumbs style links.
Those 3 home buttons. You are right on.
I will rename them to a actual product lines like:
Ultra-tec and Wire Rope.
I will also implement Go to top, that was good idea and I’ve seen it many times when browsing sites.
As you probably noticed, I got rid of popup windows for videos and instead embedded them in pages. Some customers who were behind some corporate firewalls were not able to see them and by embedding them on page it solved that issue.
Thank you for your time, I appreciate that.
that would need someone better than me to explain
I saw a lot of basic HTML tutorials where guys are deleting mere A tags in divs as you have and putting them inside of a list
here is basic example why it is better to use list for menu, easy to move with CSS only
It was funny here in the office. Friend of mine heard that screen cast and said:
That guy sounds like you. And I go, he lives in Czech . And friend says. Damn, you been here 30 years and you don’t sound any different than him as far as accent. So, don’t know how should I feel about that. Just kidding. Take care.
I will send you tomorrow 2nd video about updating 65 pages
some theory of using PHP
you say you use notepad for development
hope you mean this one
NOT this one
if you are serious about web coding stuff, get this editor (is for … Win, Mac, Linux)
to enjoy it even more give this 30mins
what you need from here is … 7 – Package Control !
here = Zen Coding + Sublime CodeIntel
good post as well (general info)
+ once you installed package control > go ahead and install package called “SideBarEnhancements”
do things I point out here now
the rest you will need later, once more advanced, so ignore it for now
get back to me if having any questions
you said the company web has 65 pages and in HTML ?
man I do NOT envy you :)
if you can and have the “power” to change it, you should gradually but eventually, page by page, switch from HTML and convert it to PHP
HTML is hard to maintain during time and on so many pages
PHP will save you a 75 % of the time
