The EU’s directives have impacted virtually every digital professional as products and services are designed with GDPR in mind, regardless of whether you’re a web design company in Wisconsin or a marketer in Malta. The far-reaching implications of GDPR don’t just impact how data should be processed, how products should be built and how data…Details
I’m a new, self-taught dev who just recently starting my first professional job. I’m looking into setting up a sort of special feature for a work project. This project is for a WordPress site, but I felt that it was more about web development than WP, which is why I’m posting here.
Basically, I need to be able to click a button underneath a blog post tile (on the main page), after which a popup will display with the title, image and content of the blog post inside.
The sort of loose example I was given was this site (when you press Learn More):
How advanced is something like this to implement? Is there any way for me to pull the WordPress code that this site used (it is a WordPress site also)
A requirement is that the popup itself needs to be AODA compliant (basically being accessible).
Can anyone give me some guidance with this task?
Web designers tend to learn something new with each project. It may be something minor (but helpful) like a new CSS property. Or it could be something more significant, such as a whole new content management system (CMS). That is both exhilarating and just a tad bit scary. It’s great to gain knowledge that you…Details
We are building a managed marketplace with buyers and sellers. The sellers will send us their items and we will list, photograph, store, and ship. The sellers will have their own dashboard to adjust the price of their items and monitor and get their payouts when their items sell.
My co-founder is the developer and uses React, MySQL, Node.JS, Express.
We were thinking of using the Bootstrap Hyper theme (which is just the front end) https://themes.getbootstrap.com/product/hyper-responsive-admin-dashboard-template/
But it seems like there might be better solutions out there that might not need so much work. We need a way to upload products, ship orders, deal with returns, refunds, see customers, give employees permissions etc
Are there better solutions when Shopify, Volusion, Bigcommerce and the like are not custom enough for our business model?
There is no doubt that logo design is one of the most important aspects of designing a brand identity. However, it can also be the most difficult part of it. While it’s true that a logo design needs to be unique and memorable, sometimes, you can’t avoid that creative block. Or sometimes, you might have…Details
I made a site to help gamers find clans and communities, with forms and Discord integration, called Gather 🎮
Check it out here!
Thanks for taking an interest in my site. If you have any feedback, I’d be happy to hear it. You’re welcome to join the Discord.
Support 🤔. If you need help, check the guides, and join the Discord.
Search 🔍. Search is the main feature. You can use a wide range of filters, including for specific games. Concise information about each result is shown, with a call to action helping you to get involved with the community right away.
Alternatives 🧭. There are other sites to find a clan. For instance, siegrs.gg is great for Siege. I think Gather offers a unique combination of granular filters, seamless integration of multiple games, and randomised ordering of results for fairness.
Aesthetics 🎨. I hope the aesthetic is not too unexciting – it’s not quite my wheelhouse! 😉
Permissions 🔒. Please let me know if you have any issues with the permissions system, or have any thoughts on how the user experience can be improved. The system affords more flexibility than, say, the one in Discord, but that also makes it a little more complex, particularly as there is no simple hierarchy. I made two recent changes. First, you can now assign a permission to all roles or all forms, removing the need to specify each and every role or form. Second, you can assign the ‘Administrator’ permission, which grants power over everything.
Forms ✍️. An optional extra are forms, useful for some communities. I wanted to improve on what Enjin offers in this regard. In particular, users can share their Discord, Steam, or Blizzard accounts, which avoids the confusion of people using the wrong format or leaving out a discriminator (e.g. #1234). You can also change a form without affecting historical applications – all fields remain intact, with no data loss. It’s also privacy-friendly – applicants can revoke applications in whole or in part.
Discord 🕹️. The Discord bot can synchronise roles and notify you about form submissions.
API 🤖. The API has been designed with third party use in mind. The Discord bot actually uses the event system, which is open to everyone to use. The API isn’t currently documented, but if anyone is interested in using it, please get in touch.
SEO 🔍. I set up a search page for each game, but not many of them are being indexed at the moment. I think this is because there are simply not enough communities on the platform at the moment, and so many of the pages have similar content.
Background 💡. I came up with this idea as I am a clan leader myself. We used Enjin for years, but with the advent of Discord, that didn’t make sense anymore. Things like forum boards, blogs, and galleries just weren’t needed. There were some things we wanted, like application forms and discoverability through a recruitment system. So I conceived of Gather as a kind of lightweight compliment to Discord which stays out of the way for the most part and helps you where it can.
Note for moderators: I tried to post this on my Gather-specific account, here, but the account doesn’t have enough karma to post.Details
When it comes to creating PowerPoint slideshows, using a simple PowerPoint template can be a key approach. It may seem like a good idea to throw the kitchen sink: data, stats, charts, and shapes into every slide, but you’ll never be able to win over your audience with a cluttered slideshow design. That’s why professionals…Details
