So I’ve had issues with my previous blog so I moved onto a wordpress.com one.
This week I have been working mostly on getting settled on what platforms I will be using so I am sure the user interface will make sense. I am leaning towards wordpress base with custom written elements for the accounts bit and a free forum platform connected to it as stated previously but I still have not decided firmly, which has me slightly worried. I will be wanting to talk to Chris about this during this week as I draw up the UI bits needed. I have already created some of the designs and have some of the images I will be using already done so that will save me some work further on.
I am slightly confused at what exactly this next deliverable wants of us – the example in the lecture was a complete functioning site – are we supposed to have full, final UI done by next Friday? I will be looking to clear this up since I have obviously missed some parts of this. Either way, I am progressing steadily and I should have everything I need cleared up this week. I have some other things to deal with during the week so hopefully that will not interfere with the task at hand.
My main problem right now is not making the account system etc. work but whether or not there is a point in working on the forums but if I should be focusing on other things – stepping into the boundaries of changing the plan, which is something we have been warned to avoid. Still, I am completely confident the month we have to create the website is enough whatever I do – I just have an extremely tough time figuring out if this is, indeed what I wanted to do.
