We hope you enjoy learning about our team!
Today we installed wordpress onto the server and established the connection to the database. I’m also going to start working on a homepage for the site. I grabbed the mission statements from the old site but had trouble finding pictures to go with some of them. I also changed the order of the pages on the nav. If you go on page attributes you can change the order number. On a later day when we’re back to school if someone could find some better pictures that’d be nice.
Today I updated the logo on the website. I took an older image of the logo and brought it onto Photoshop to touch it up. I cleaned the image and added an orange outer-glow on the”1153″.I added drop shadows on the wrenches and the “rebels”. I uploaded it to the site and added it to our page.
The Robo Rebels will be leaving on Wednesday for St Louis to compete at the World Championship. The team has worked very hard to make it this far, and everyone is excited for the competition.
Today we created a new folder for our WordPress site, we extracted files given to us and placed them in the new wpsite folder. We individually created our own database based through Xampp and moved all of the files in the wpsite folder into the local server on Dreamweaver. Next class we will be looking to work on the website in Dreamweaver
Today we started getting the website onto the server, and I moved previous posts about the website into the new website category for posts. Also, someone (I think Max) mentioned not being able to make a home page. In the customize I found something about making a static front page so I added a blank home page and moved the posts to a page called blog.
Today we started the process to put our wordpress site onto Dreamweaver. We downloaded wordpress files and put them into our wpsite folder. Next class we will work to put our sites onto the server, so we can edit them independently of wordpress
I also added a Logo above our “RoboRebels 1153” in the header. I was unable to figure out how to create a home page button, but the Logo links to the “home page” with the blog posts. My next goals are to photoshop the logos to them look cleaner (whether or not we use them) and try and find a way to link to the home page.
