The Micro Manor

Hi all,

I am a product designer, just starting out, and would like to learn how to design my own site. I just signed up for WordPress, and hope this class will help me with that as well.

My design focus is products for small, limiting living spaces which including metropolitan living; transient habitation such as apartments; institutional or temporary housing such as college dorms, shelters, even guest rooms; and specialized living situations.

I know that this is a 101 class, but my goal is an ecommerce site. Shooting for the stars, hope to hit the moon…will settle for the top of a mountain.

I wish you all well and I am excited to see how all our projects turn out.

Still stuck on the homework? I cannot figure out how to get past 

4. External Style Sheets.  in the Code Academy I keep getting an error 

Oops, try again! You forgot to copy and paste the CSS style for 'p.neat-word'!

Oops, try again! You forgot to copy and paste the CSS style for 'p'! 

I don't know what I am doing wrong.  I would so love to get past this.

Finally finished Lesson- except for the first page of 4. External Style Sheets'p.neat-word' part.

I think I am learning, but am slow in applying everything I have learned. I hope you all are progressing as well.

I am having  browser issues. I listened to the lesson on the Dom but have not had a chance to appy it. So the site does not look the same on Internet Explorer as in Chrome or Firefox.

However, I have been able to apply the lessons on CCS and I found a lesson on tables. I noted the link on my site if anyone wants to go there as well. 

Please visit http://themicromanor.com/.

I look forward to viewing your sites as well.

Have a great day all!

I have learned much this weekend. I have completed section 4; used the Chrome Dom and created the email form.

However, I could not quite figure out how to validate my email button, or how to link email to me- but I don't think that is in the lesson. I am starting out on lesson 5 now. How is everyone else coming along?

Hi all,

Yes I know the class is over but I just recieved an email stating that reviews are comming soon. I wanted to update my project becauseI just made my first Wordpress Theme from code!

I used a tutorial from by Keenan Payne from http://slackrmedia.com/ here is the link to the tut if anyone wants to play with their own themes.

http://www.onextrapixel.com/2011/03/08/how-to-code-a-wordpress-3-0-theme-from-scratch/.

It is an old tut so if you want to use it you need to refert to the WP Codex site for updates. It is still a work in progress but here is is.

 I look forward to seeing all your sites progress as well.
