Website To-Do

Sure

  • update any page that needs updating (in other words all pages are “evergreen”)

  • finish converting #tag pages to #portal pages

  • figure out a better way to automate including my bookmarks on relevant #portal pages

  • figure out how to get rid of the whitespace at bottom of every page (below the bottom navigation bar)

  • import all nm’s long- and medium-form content to this Hugo site (from Blogger, Tumblr, old ii.com, etc.)

  • improve stylesheet so, for example, the HTML5 Kitchen Sink looks better

  • use web feeds and/or Twitter to announce changes to the site

  • update the site skeleton that is used in Hugo Tutorial: Themeless & Gitless Introduction to Hugo

Probably

Maybe

  • import nm’s short-form[1] content to this site (from Twitter, del.icio.us, pinboard.in, discussion groups[2] etc.)

  • improve the top-of-page and bottom-of-page icons, which are currently either ⇧ and ⇩ or ⍐ and ⍗ or ⍓ and ⍌ (because I’m in the midst of changing them). I wonder if there is a standard???

  • improve the admonition boxes and icons, which currently look like this:

‼︎
This is important.
👉️
This is a note.
💡︎
This is a tip.
⚠️
This is a warning.

Done

2020-January
  • Change title of “TGIH: Themeless & Gitless Introduction to Hugo” to “Hugo Tutorial: Themeless & Gitless Introduction to Hugo” so maybe it will show up in search engine results when someone searches for "hugo tutorial" with bing.com, duckduckgo.com, google.com, etc.🙏

  • Create #meta Portal and pin (📍) a link to it near the top of the list of Portals

  • Change top right navigation bar so it now says Portals  About  ⍌ (where ⍌ is a link to “scroll to bottom of page” but I wonder if anyone understands that???)

  • Change layout of article metadata (permalink, dates, copyright, portals) in article footers, but I don’t know if I like this new design🤔

2019-November
  • on pages with comments, change section title from "Discussion and feedback" to "Discussion and reactions"

  • new favicon/logo Infinite Ink logo Infinite Ink logo Infinite Ink logo

  • Change most #tag pages so they are now #portal pages

  • In #portal pages, make the bottom navigation bar be previous portal | home | next portal

  • Change top navigation bar so it now says: Portals  Meta (instead of about  connect  tags)

  • Change bottom navigation bar (previous|home|next) so it flows and aligns better on small screens. (After a lot of FAILed CSS3, flexbox, and float experiments, I am using an HTML5 table to do this😱︎)

2019-October
2019-May
  • publish Asciidoctor- and Hugo-based site🎉

2016 – 2019
~2013 – 2019[3]
  • experiment with static site generators, including Antora, Blogdown (which is based on Hugo), GitBook, Hugo, Jekyll, Lektor, Liquid Luck, Pelican

  • experiment with wiki software, including Gollum (which is git-based wiki software)

  • learn different flavors of Markdown, including PHP Markdown Extra, which Tumblr supports, and GitHub-flavored Markdown

Notes

Discussion and reactions


1. Short-form content is also known as micro content.
2. Discussion groups include Usenet, mailing lists, forums, discourse sites, comments on other websites, etc.
3. I pretty much decided on Hugo in ~2017 but periodically got so frustrated that I kept trying alternatives.

Discussion and reactions
