Re: Web Page Development
In Response To: Web Page Development ()
just wanted to chime in on the web page development - genealogy related topic. As someone who has done websites for years let me just say that there is a real steep learning curve with regards to doing sites and I would offer to you the nugget "Keep it simple s#####" as a point of reference with regards to trying to learn and create a website as well as do research.
I am sure there are some super humans out there that can learn all aspects of website design and development and research their family history at the same time - I do not include myself in that number....I look forward to creating a family tree based web site EVENTUALLY but i don't feel pressed time wise I will get to it and my knowledge of html allows me to comfortably "know" how to get it looking the way i want and doing what I want it to do. But being in the midst of family research im cutting myself some slack with regards to implementing a site RIGHT NOW lol...i will get to it....im sure the web will still be there when im ready...Those of you that are still in the "learning stages" be patient, read as much as you can stand - maybe even take some classes online or otherwise until you feel comfortable with html code and CSS coding(a boon esepcially for sites with a lot of text)
