  1. In your GA dashboard, does it say that it's receiving data? If so, then there is nothing wrong with the code implementation. GA has a built-in threshold. Not sure exactly how to lift that but basically, if your new website doesn't get sufficient data, GA will not show it.
  2. Thinking of mobile-first, a visitor will scroll anyway Changed the logotype, added some color, created a single-page test templ. which can be see by choosing it in the menu.
  3. Yeahhh I got rid of that topbar, using a fixed hamburger instead: http://www.rinaldi.nl/projects/nina I think this looks way better than earlier, and also the menu items looks nice with the Fjord type.
  4. I also tried slicknav, the problem with that one, it will not be told to play nicely within my column structure, it will take the full viewport width even-though placing it inside a container with 80% width. I also wasn't able to put anything else in the bar. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but to style that topbar, I might have to deal with sass sooner than I wanted lol.
  5. Haha yeah. Well, I have visited a gazillion websites in this beauty/fashion/model industry, and can't remember seeing anywhere a logo or navbar that is pretty big. Hence the reason for choosing to keep it small but readable. One of the references I took are them: http://www.clmuk.com/ small logo, small social icons, the images are most important. I can of course do it differently, just to be different, but styling that top-bar showed to be a hell. I started learning code only last month and still trying to find my way in all the related languages. To be fair, I just remembered, I forgot to mention that I might replace the mail icon. The other two link directly to her social pages, but the mail icon would link to a new page with info about her, bio, etc. So that would not be using the icons consistently. Still thinking how to solve that nicely.
  6. Ok, found out that styling the Foundation top-bar is a hell. Unfortunately, I am not skilled yet to change anything about it (haven't tried sass yet), I even can't get the font-size of the bar h1 to be bigger I removed the gradient. I know it's not a valid excuse, but I started learning code last month, and still trying to find my way and get into a good rhythm of doing a bit of coding every day.
  7. Should I use icons at all? Is that still considered up-to-date? I see them everywhere, is it wrong of me to think "I don't want to use them, because everyone else uses them."? Bigger header? But still avoid the "Can you make the logo bigger?" syndrome, correct? Yes, the default font of Foundation is Helvetica without any styling So no border at all? I did that before and it felt the images were floating in air, does that sounds weird, I dunno :S I will remove those small blocks, both out of aesthetics and the fact that on tablet and mobile, it shifted locations. It even goes to white I will play with that more, I understand what you mean with having it more subtle. By the way, the gradient doesn't work on tablet nor mobile, is this normal? Ehhh...is this related to adding extra lines in the CSS with something -moz etc? Thank you
  8. Thanks. I think it's better now http://www.rinaldi.nl/projects/nina/ (uploaded 14:15 CET) I chose two nice fonts, Oswald for the logo, and Fjord One for everything else. Those blocky spans is an experiment, native to foundation so I tried to see how it looks, still playing with that. I chose for a darker background to avoid having that clinical white that everyone else in her industry seems to have, what do you think about that?
  9. Oh really, sorry. I thought dev talk is for development only. Thanks.
  10. Hey guys, is there a section in the forum for webdesign works-in-progress, to ask for feedback/critique? If not, can you recommend me a forum with good constructive feedback from strong designers? I am working on a minimal site for a makeup artist and can really use some feedback. My weak-points are typography (definitely an art) and emotion. The latter probably stems from me being a typical Asian dude who is discrete/private by nature, so expressing emotion doesn't come naturally to me. http://www.rinaldi.nl/projects/nina/index.html How can I make this more...alive? The intention is to keep it clean and minimal, but this looks plain dead to me. Anything that comes to mind, let me know. Thanks.
  11. Looks great, easy on the eyes. I like the typeface (absolutely my Achilles). Sticky CTA, very clever
  12. Ah yes, of course, edited
  13. Ladies & Gents...it works now!!! Partehhhhhhhh Ok, literally one issue: installing in a subfolder. That's it! lol So as Mike (and later on SMO) suggested, I installed it on subdomain. I did had to # the symlinks thing, but of course, did that already in the earlier attempts. Turns out the htaccess.txt / .htaccess, wasn't a problem, good to have that confirmed. Maybe valuable to add this in the Troubleshoot Guide? That installing in a subfolder, instead of root (domain/subdomain), might actually be the problem-starter. Thanks Mike, Macrura, Pwired and Smo. I can smile again woohoo! @macrura: still planning to play with that bitnami stack
  14. Thanks. Yeah I already assumed that it's definitely not PW, just can't figured out who. The first thing that I checked was my host, and according to their service page they do allow mod_rewrite and actually explain what to do in htaccess. However, what I did notice, not sure if this is the dealbreaker, but the htaccess file that comes with the download says this "htaccess.txt". The moment I change that to ".htaccess", it disappears from the directory. So I kept it as txt. Let me guess, it's really required to have it as .htaccess isn't it?
  15. Thanks. Yeah I am a passionate (therefor also emotional) guy, so when something I am really excited about doesn't work for me, but for anybody else, I just feel down Hmmm...subdomain, never tried that for anything before, will do that today
  16. Wow! Thank you for this! I am curious by nature and like trying different apps just to see what it does and whether I can use it for something in the near future. Thanks for introducing me to Bitnami, this looks like app heaven to me
  17. Nope I think my journey ends already. What did I do: - downloaded the master zip from the download page; - unpacked it; - renamed it to "pw"; - uploaded the pw folder with filezilla to /projects/; - so the full slug would be www.rinaldi.nl/projects/pw; - opened the browser at said url; - it said hello and welcome etc. to me; - it asked me to choose a profile; - I chose a profile and clicked next; - it showed me a lot of green bars, and one red bar saying that my mod_rewrite might not be working; - so this is the moment that I opened the htaccess file and started the mentioned suggestions/solutions. The first attempt brought me to a working homepage, a not working admin link, and not working other pages. The second to fifth attempt showed me a 500 error after choosing a profile, either clicking on "Check again" or "Next step". I have tried: - uncommenting according to troubleshoot guide; - uncommenting everything; - changed the rewritebase thing to include my full slug. What I really don't get is why this is not working. I have installed many different cms systems in the past, and they all worked 'out-of-the-box' The reason I was excited because how nice it plays with Foundation, the framework I settled on, for the coming time. I don't want to sound like a spoiled brat, but I am so disappointed, that I am actually gutted, as I was really excited seeing how it worked from Philipps screencasts. I am not a developer, nor do I want to become one. I simply want to design a website, have the minimal required knowledge to connect it with a cms so the client can update their site themselves, and then move on. Is there anyone out here that can ask me to try anything else other than what is already in the troubleshoot guide, or in the other threads about this problem?
  18. I'm sorry guys, but now I can't even install it. I shows a 500 error directly from the start, no matter what I try in the htaccess. This is definitely not how I imagined my journey into PW
  19. Ok, hold on, I am going to do a clean install. I think it's the best option right now.
  20. Oh wow! How can I have missed that! But no, I just edited the file to /projects/pw/, and I still can't see/access the admin
  21. Hello! First of all, I am really looking forward to have lively conversations with you all, and becoming skilled with PW, I think this might be exactly what I have been looking for. Last month I decided to learn code, registered myself at codecademy, completed the HTML and CSS tracks, and recently have been producing some nice one-pagers with Foundation. This morning I watched the two episode Philipp Reiner special on how easy it is to simply copy-paste the HTML into PW, and then make the necessary changed to have it dynamic. --- Now, I installed PW in a subdir: 'www.rinaldi.nl/projects/pw' and for some reason it shows the Default template, but clicking on the admin link does not bring me to the admin login. I have done everything in the troubleshoot guide, I have mod_rewrite enabled, uncommented the rewritebase /pw/, etc. The only thing I haven't tried yet, is to start all over again with a clean install. But maybe this isn't necessary(?). Is there anything else that I have to take into account? Thank you.
