Websites are hard mkay?

This week I’ve learnt and also, frustratingly not learnt, how to do some new things on the world of the web.

Recently, my partner decided he wanted a website (again) and so we got to work on it and here is where we have gotten currently. He also has a forum attached which is phpBB. The website stuff is fine, if he has a question I don’t know I look it up and more or less it is an easy fix or add on but where the forum is concerned I pull out my hair!

He would like a list of most recent topics/posts in the forum to be displayed on the site, sounds easy enough right? Well, I’m still yet to do it. I’ve scoured ever phpbb forum I can find and yet my brain still hurts. It is now to the point where I’ve given up in frustration… any phpBB experts out there?

It has been nice to use more CSS though and get the hang of PHPincludes and I even validated my website! For the first time in her history, Lazily is validated! Doesn’t she just shine? ๐Ÿ™‚

In all of this I’ve learnt more about cpanel too and my host is helping more learn more as I help him out with tickets and the like. They’re a very supportive host is Rewind and none of my questions are ever stupid.

As my confidence increases I’ve been able to answer questions on forums and overall help people out. It’s kind of incredible the week I’ve had.

So where does it all lead? Well, I signed up for my first SOTM competition and I’m coming second so far! I was scared I’d be dead last with only my vote to my name ๐Ÿ˜› I’d love your help if you’d like. Click the button below to go to voting:
