Updating elfden.co.uk

It has been a while since I even looked at the main elfden site, let alone updated it!.

However since I have written some php I felt it deserved a bit of a makeover, so I am currently working on the redesign, and integrating nearly everything into my content management system.

Some interesting facts are cropping up though:

  • The gallery will contain 26 sub galleries for all my images!
  • the resizing on my gallery gives a sharper thumbnail than I originally had!
  • 50 pages in one category is too many.
  • my coding skills several years ago are good enough to cut and paste into my database … luckily
  • being able to do the majority of it off line is fortuitous
  • it is boring and tedious – get me outta here!

I currently have approximately 40 pages to go, and will have to upload the images afterwards but I aiming for the new system to be live by the end of the month.

    Of course when writing that I didn’t realise how much work needed to be done on some of the pages! No simple cut’n’paste *sigh*.

    So it has been delayed – though this gives me time to play about with the design abit more, as I am still not happy with it.

    Another eason for the delay, was writing a few more script for the CMS – polls and sitemap for example.

    almost finished – I doubt I’ll ever be satisfied with the look of it. Keot things close to the original but not exactly the same.

    However i have now uploaded and released the new site.

    The gallery will probably never get finished – 300 plus images is a lot to sort out!
