DevBlog: November 27, 2015

This is the first devblog I’m releasing. I mainly want to document that tonight I’m done with the “rough draft” of the website. There’s still a long way to go before I feel like the first stage of the website is complete. Please comment here (or contact me on Twitter @erabrand) with any feedback you have or bugs you find.

  • I have an idea for how I’d like to integrate the logo into the design, but I haven’t quite been able to manage it yet. I’ll keep working on it.
  • Fill out the Who We Are page and make it public again.
    • I need to get biographies for the people highlighted on the Who We Are page.
    • This might also lead to creating subpages for a few of the biography sections.
    • Copy the list of autchat participants into either the Who We Are page or its own sub-page.
  • Completed 12/06/2015 I need to embed the storifies into blog posts. There are a lot of them, so this will take me a while.
  • Completed 12/07/2015 I need to add images into the How-To for the Twitter chat
  • Need to create the other two how-to guides.
  • Completed 12/07/2015 I need to tighten up the copy, especially on the About and Twitter pages.
  • Implement SEO and Google Analytics.
  • Create a styleguide and how-tos for people producing content for the website, specifically for the topic and storify blog posts and editing the main page.
  • Fix the long descriptions for the images in the IRC and Twitter how-to guides. Considering asking others to help w/this.
  • Implement the site image/favicon.
  • Completed 11/27/2015 Change the background on the blog category pages (Topics and Storifys).
  • Completed 12/06/2015 Try to figure out why line breaks don’t show up on the Topics Category page. (They do show up on individual pages.)
    • Figuring this out is leading to more work. Still deciding on a solution.
  • Completed 12/13/2015 Add information about the accessibility plug-in to the FAQ.
  • Find a way to automate upcoming chat topics to auto-populate the home page.
  • Add a glossary to the FAQ, esp for terms like “neurodiversity” and “neurodivergent” and “self-diagnosed”.
