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?

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!
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.
