New Site Added for Creative Multimedia Programming side of things…

I am on my fourth or fifth blog for the course in multimedia at LIT so far so good.

Below is an image featured in my latest installment. I am fond of the color and getting used to using the blogger tools provided by google. Wow the interesting world of google – it is very dense for sure learning about analytics, site verification etc.

Here is my latest blog post entitled:

Creative Multimedia Programming

Today as a matter of record Meta tags were added as a simple method over the google tag managers. Tag Managers were deployed last week and seem to be working but advice has been given that the meta tags are simple and easy to use. Google tag managers require registering or the site if there is trouble verifying the site – google forces you to get a container snippet by creating a google tag manager account, crating a container and then by copying and pasting the container code.

An easier way to do this is to use an alternative, the meta tags and paste them into the head for the site.

For the above site I also accessed this list to manage the account:

google analytics,

administration property settings.

Blogger generates a site map so this is taken care of.

 

Curious Room Report

This week was interesting – lots of graphics were drawn but CSS was slow, firstly media queries would not work properly. I had to include the min & max and not just the max as I had done successfully in an earlier project. Then my navigation decided to act up. On the upside I had lots of fun experimenting with flexbox for my menu but alas it did not work. Another effort for the digital grave! No doubt there will be a price to pay for time ‘wasted’ in the coming weeks …..

I am having great trouble to get simple jQuery to work and the weekend was spent developing a nice looking media player that does not work, yet! Here are some screen shots of my user feedback development screen and about screen. It is still unclear to me how I will get the html integrated with php as I am finding it impossible to de-bug initial work. More challenges await….This creative world is a crazy gig – my deep desire is learn new ways to execute creativity¬†but frustrations loom large; relying on old techniques to render new ideas. Yes the digital paradox.

Oh and I forgot to push to bit bucket so that is next on the list! A link will be posted as soon.
