New project – Building this website and documenting it. Okay, not so new since I’ve been working on this website for a good part of last year. But the new part is documenting how I did certain things here so that hopefully it’ll be useful for someone else. And useful for myself when I’ve forgotten how I did something.
I tend to make random notes here and there. Scraps of paper; incoherent emails to myself that only made sense at the moment I was working on something; bookmarking web references which might not be there forever, etc. So these posts will help me in the sense that I am force to sit down and coherently recap instructions on how I did something in words a novice like me will understand. Because, honestly, I don’t know anything about web design and writing codes. So when I find something that works or don’t work, I need to really make sure I write it down at a central place.
Why? Because even after multiple MULTIPLE suggestions online, in forums, to make all changes in a child theme. I have not. Which means I have to redo all my work whenever there is an update. I’ll explain more about what a child theme is and how to create a child theme… when I actually do create a child theme.
I promise myself I’ll do it soon, for my own sanity. How many times do you have to redo something before it drives you up the wall?
