https://scottsworld.info Biggest change is implementing https on the site, the default URL for the blog was changed to https and had to change all the links in my pages from http to https. Now getting any links to my site to change because if you to the http link instead of https it will stay on http until you click on a new link with the https coding.
Updated The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding ©, v. 12.0.2 from version 8 and updated the gedcoms that provide the information. https://scottsworld.info/genealogy/getperson.php?personID=I1&tree=Woodward https://scottsworld.info/genealogy/index.php
Have mostly completed updating the HTML/CSS of the site to be HTML 5 compliant. Unless you know website coding it probably isn’t of must interest. A lot of things I was instructed to do in html 4 now is depreciated or not supported and I had to remove it. The main changes are designed to make sites more flexible so they display on any display or device. If you don’t know HTML is Hyper Text Markup Language and CSS is Cascading Style Sheet. More and more of the control of the site from the color and fonts to margins, alignment of elements and so on are in the style sheet.
Biggest annoyance is over the years they have gone from the “center” tag to using “align=center” in that ever tag we wanted to center and you could center a whole page and everything on it with div align=center. Well all that is depreciated and they want you to align stuff with the style sheet and one alignment command is now replaced with half a dozen different ones and what works on text does not work on images or tables and so on. I had to learn a whole new technique to align images and tables. Now have one style command with half a dozen align and margin commands to do what align=center did with style=center with isn’t as reliable, some times doesn’t work.
Was working on the Woodward pages Friday night and yesterday, have one page that will not obey the style sheet and all the text runs from one side and off the right side… Driving me nuts, can’t find a reason why and html tidy and the css checker say there are no errors but obviously there is a problem. https://woodward.scottsworld.info/introduction.htm All the subpages from that page work using he same code.. ARGGG! Computers!!! Enough to drive a person insane some times..
The weather page is mostly working. https://weather.scottsworld.info/index.html At least the main page is, having issues with the program Weather display not uploading files it is set to and creating and uploading one image I have turned off completely but it still does it.. Bloomsky v1 died and was replaced with Bloomsky v2 but I have had issues with my internet dropping and have to get up on the roof and reset the bloomsky to the router. If it is not one thing it is another around here, murphys law is working over time.. I will have to post some photos later, my phone crashed said the sd card was corrupted and the last photos I took the other day aren’t on it any more..
Removed the Gospel Principles pages, the list hasn’t been used in a few years now. Had too many people complaining they wanted to be removed (although instructions on how to unsubscribe were at the bottom of every message) and not one person (over 500 subscribers) complained when I stopped posting as I don’t have enough time. So I decided to remove the pages.
Think that is everything, lot of coding changes and other technical changes but it still looks mostly the same. You would probably have to be me to spot the changes really.
