    Default An idea to start some activity in the Website Design Forum

    Well, let me start by saying that I am no web designer, programmer, or any such person. I dabble in Wordpress, and that's about it. I was excited, however to see this forum show up, as I thought I might be able to glean some info from the geniuses on here At this point, however there isn't much to learn here...

    I thought as a way to start some discussion, we could do a thread that would basically be a repository for member websites. A lot of you have great sites, and finding them can be tedious if you don't remember whose was where, etc. I propose any member that has a website for their display (or other hobbies?) just post it. That way we can associate your username and website, and have them all in one spot. Just as we rely on each other's displays for a creative impetus on our own, we can peruse other websites for ideas to use/modify/borrow and put on our own pages.

    Anyone think this sounds like a good idea?

    Edit (2/8/12): Okay, a couple of positives responses and Dave had added his, so let's make this happen.

    Having looked (unsuccessfully) for such an archived thread, I figured it either wasn't allowed, wasn't suggested yet, or I was just blind.
    Given a choice, I'd prefer to do business with comrades here.
    Good idea, boyelroy.

    I'll chime in... I think its a great idea. Whenever I read a post by someone I usually go their web page to see there home. I have them scattered arround different reference documents in hope ill remember them later.

    Okay.... I'm running Dirk's Lights as a link out of http://diychristmas.org where I also have the DIGWDF store, among other things like a backup/alternate chat room, and a PDF-version of the Wiki...



    (I just know I'm gonna get banned from DIYC sometime soon... I just KNOW it....)

    I have two sites that might be of interest to the DIYC crowd:

    • PacificaLights wherein all the gory details about my light show are stored. This site runs under Joomla 1.5.22 on a circa 2007 Mac Mini under Snow Leopard. (Why is it a dot-info domain? Godaddy had dot-infos on sale that week.)
    • DMCole.net is my blog on fiddling around with microprocessors and LEDs. I have a bunch of content that is almost finished and in the next couple of weeks hope to get it published. This one runs on Wordpress 3.3.1 also on the MM.


    HTH.

    Isn't that kind of a given for just about everything? That it needs more cowbell that is.

    My Christmas website is: http://ChristmasOnQuietHills.com/

    I did host it from home on a SheevaPlug, but recently migrated it to running on my linode.com hosting account. It uses wordpress which is tracked in git for easy updating, maintenance, and tracking of my changes.
