In case you were watching me build a web2.0 website from scratch over time, here’s a little update.
Search engine friendly urls are now working. ex: http://2009.webveteran.com/about-freelance-web-development/home/
Ajax loading is 50% done. The main contents change so far (not page title or sidebar contents). To see it see it work, load the home page, then click on ‘Home’.
For very intersted parties, I will be giving out demo accounts to access the CMS Admin.
This Demo Staff type has all of the priviledges of an admin, with none of the responsibility.
Meaning, for example, you can test out updating pages and deleteing other staff members – without it actually being performed on the back end.
To request an account, make a comment below – be sure to fill out all 3 fields. I’ll set up your account and email your password.
I had this crazy idea, and I think I’m going to try it! I started to build a new website for myself… long overdo from almost three years ago. And I figured, ‘why not do so publicly?’ Sure it’s like dropping my drawers, but I’m confident although I know I am not the absolute best. But I think it would be interesting… at least, I think it would be to watch someone else do so.
The completed site will be/have:
- web2.0 layout and functionality
- custom cms with plugin architecture (I might open this up as well)
- seo + sef urls
- one page load navigation (ajax)
So without further wait, please visit 2009.webveteran.com to take part in the experiment. Comment and criticisms are welcome and appreciated.
Keep in mind, this is a site entirely in development! What you will see occasionally:
- broken links
- broken content
- dummy text
- images as test text
Heck, you might even see a table or two (gasp). You’ll probably also see me change libraries every now and then (as was the case with the scroller). And of course there may be days without any progress whatsoever. Subscribe to this blog or my twitter account to keep updated!
[sigh] here we go…
