This week, with the portfolio site due, I decided to try out altering a template using Dreamweaver. The results, luckily, were not terrible. It took a lot of work to try and figure out how to make the HTML work with the template, especially when I did not recognize some of it. I took out pieces that were not needed for my website, and I removed anything that I haven’t learned yet, for simplicity’s sake. Obviously the website will get better as we move forward in the semester and learn more, but overall, I am pleased with my results.
The worst part this week was figuring out how to attach my website to the domain via my FTP. I realized, after so much frustration, that I had been using the wrong FTP information when trying to connect, but I got it sorted out. Everything should be working, and I look forward to being able to make a website that is visually appealing and interesting.
The URL is here, so you can see for yourself my results.
