Hey C-You Too Buddy!!!! You can take this page and shove it!
Those two statement pretty much wrap up how I feel about a contact page. But I stated in the deliverables of TheTaleofMatt that I would include a contact page. Its a good idea and a nice feature to have but setting one up is not so intuitive. But none the less I managed to pull it off just this morning. With one small catch!
Ok well if you have seen the latest homepage of www.TheTaleofMatt.com you can see that things are starting to look like an actual site with real images and stuff not just some crud slapped on a page. Even though I still have a lot of work to go before anything is complete i thought I’d share with you some of the challenges I’ve met with DW and how I managed to curtail them.
Horray! In the last few days I’ve been getting slammed. With Mothers Day, CS5 in 30 Days Project, 100 Miles In May (I’m also running 100 miles in the month of May), playin softball, prepping for grad school and just tryin to be a good dad, I havent had much time to think, much less Blog about the headway we’ve made. But Alas im happy to report that www.TheTaleofMatt.com is now live thanks to Dreamweaver!
This weekend I got a crash course in HTML, CSS as well as Adobe DW CS5 and to tell the truth its been great. I’ve really tried learning HTML and CSS in the past, reading tutorials checking out book from the library etc, but it just never quite sank and I’ll admit there was a lack of being able to practice what I was learning. Dreamweaver CS5 miraculously makes up for all of this! I am quickly discovering that DW is a great way to learn how to code.
If we are going to build a website the 1st Adobe CS5 Application we need to figure our is Most likely Dreamweaver (DW).
(I’d like to hear your thoughts on this)
Dreamweaver is a WYSIWYG or a “What You See Is What You Get” application. These programs are used for building and creating websites and apps (like on your iPhone). The cool thing about these is that you dont need to know any programming language to “Code” the site. You simply drag and drop pictures and elements (like forms) into the application and then tell Dreamweaver (or WYSIWYG) what you want it to do with it. Dreamweaver then simultaneously writes all the code for you.
Day 1 Update – 26 Days Remaining on Trial CS5
Ok so first thing is first. This is day 1 but in all actuality its day 4 because of a few reason. When I first downloaded CS5 I had not yet come up with this idea, Day 2 was spent formulating the plan and Day 3 was spent putting the pieces together and notifying the appropriated people of what the heck I was doing.
So, its already Day 4 (26 Days Left Remaining) and I have barely opened the trial software. But dont worry because we’ve already come along way towards our goal. So heres what I’ve done so far and Im sorry that not much of it has involved CS5.
