I’m not freelance, so I don’t need a website to “sell” my services, hence you won’t find any smarmy headlines and calls to action here – but pretty much just some of my work, and a blog.
I built it on Roots, which I love. I’ve found Bootstrap a little fiddly but once you get the hang of it, it’s lovely to work with. BS and Roots were possibly overkill for such a simple site, but I wanted an excuse to use them and it gives me the option to add to the site in future without having to write out tons of CSS. Now that I’ve worked with this framework, I am looking to use it for my next project.
I’m sure there’s all sorts of things people can nitpick at, but to be honest I just wanted to share it with you, and I do hope you all like it, and my work!
Thanks.March 12, 2012 at 7:11 am #98832karlpcrowleyParticipant
Wow, I love it, nothing bad to say
What CMS are you using if any?March 12, 2012 at 7:12 am #98833
Good ole’ WordPress. And thank you! :)March 12, 2012 at 7:15 am #98834karlpcrowleyParticipant
Thought that, but chrome sniffer didn’t pick it up

Looks good! I’m getting a weird bug where when I hover on the items on the home page I’m only getting the hand cursor some of the time, so I wasn’t sure if they were clickable or not.
If comments are closed (like they are on the portfolio items), I would simply remove the ‘Comments are closed’ message. Nobody needs to know that they could be open!March 12, 2012 at 2:28 pm #98864polson1000Participant
Very nice! Are you converting PSD mock ups into these WordPress powered designs or working within the structure of the underlying theme?March 12, 2012 at 8:33 pm #98887joshuanhibbertMember
Love it! My only recommendation would be to have your blog as the landing page. After all, you aren’t freelancing.March 12, 2012 at 10:08 pm #98902SMacMember
Very Nice…March 16, 2012 at 8:49 am #99234
Thanks for all the feedback, really glad you all like it.
@TheDoc, that’s weird. What browser? I’ll see if I can re-create.
@polson1000, I don’t use Photoshop for any of my work. I will be writing a blog post soon as to why, but I am very much one of these “in-browser” designer types. I just find it easier to work straight with CSS in-browser.
@joshuanhibbert You’re probably right, although I felt my blog was a little thin on the ground right now. When I’ve got some more posts up I will probably switch them around.
Again, thanks for the feedback, I am really happy with it and I’d thoroughly recommend Roots.March 16, 2012 at 5:06 pm #99257TheDocMember
I’m seeing it in Chrome.March 17, 2012 at 7:51 pm #99310HoughtonAParticipant
I like it!
I might make the top menu buttons change based on whatever page is being viewed, though.March 18, 2012 at 3:18 pm #99354
I don’t think having page dependent menu’s is a good idea if I’m honest, it’s confusing for users and this site is so simple.
I’m unable to replicate this cursor issue in Chrome. It’s just a normal list gallery, there’s nothing different about it apart from the transitions.
I can’t help but get the feeling this is a browser bug with the transitions, as in because the image moves it causes some sort of issue with the placement of the link.
I can’t see anything wrong with my syntax though so I don’t know why it would do that.
Site should be fine in landscape view on a tablet, though I need to adjust the gallery. However I do plan to make it work for portrait view too, just need to add the media queries. Thanks for the heads up!March 18, 2012 at 10:03 pm #99389March 19, 2012 at 5:02 am #99394
Maybe, although it does say you are on the blog page or the about page!
