Thanks to all those who welcomed me in my last post, and thanks for the questions as well! I’ve been compiling a list of potential guides/articles to work on in the near future (spring break starts this weekend! :D) and I’m looking for more.
Here are the current ideas:
- A brief coding overview: What’s the deal with HTML 5? How do I/why should I validate, and what’s it mean to have valid code? (This may have an abundance of links as many have been more eloquent than I in expressing the answers to these questions.)
- A guide to positioning: Essentially this will take up where this guide leaves off; it will show you the different techniques for arranging and positioning the components of your layout.
- Introduction to fancy CSS techniques: Once you’ve got the basics of positioning and color down, there are some more recently developed techniques to add a little flair to your page. This would list these techniques and have links to tutorials on and examples of them, and if necessary, an explanation of the principles behind them.
- Textpattern and Swimchick: How do we use Textpattern to run Swimchick? This would probably not delve into the code itself, but just give you an idea of how Textpattern operates, since I don’t think many of you are working with Txp right now. If you want to see code, that can be done, too, but you’ll have to let me know!
Which one(s) do you want to see? Additionally, what other questions do you have or tutorials do you want to see? Please be as specific as possible; it’s much easier to write a guide (or find one) on a narrow topic than a broad one!
