Website To-Do and Done

Page contents

Meta To-Do

  • decide on a To-Do tool (GitHub Issues, Todo.txt, simply this web page, or something else)

Website To-Do


  • 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, 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 TGIH: Themeless & Gitless Introduction to Hugo



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

  • improve the top-of-page and bottom-of-page icons, which are currently either ⍐ 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.


  • 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😱︎)

  • 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


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.
