Site still being improved!
Started this project with my good friend and favorite designer Lucy in August, and it has not stopped being exciting. I decided to lay back on server side scripting this time; I have been thinking a lot about user interfacing and am still having trouble developing my first direct GUI. As odd as it sounds I have been using wordpress installs as a way of updating site content, for the time being (until I understand user input better) it is working out quite well. I decided to rely on that ascent more than creating my own convoluted back-end. This is also the first time I am applying a working AJAX model, complete with browser state-saves, google analytics calls, and seo safe rewrites to google specs. Hash tags were a bit of an issue but with guidance from google I realized that a site can still be fully indexable using the ajax format. This is really an excellent tool and one I have been wanting to implement for a long time. In all regards (AJAX requests, jquery effects, page transitions, and gallery style) I think this is the best site I have made so far, and I’m so glad it was for my designer Lucy 🙂
