The idea is to create a website to keep track of all my project ideas and also to practice my developing developing skills (see what I did there!)
- Recent Updates Feed (3 years ago)
Added a 'recent updates' feed for the home page that generates this little panel that you are reading this in. I added a 'updates' table to my database, any changes I make generate an entry there and this page uses AJAX to collect the most recent ones and display them here.
- Added images (2 years ago)
Finally got round to adding images. True to form, I couldn't do it the easy way and opted for a custom PHP script and HTML form that uploads images to the server and adds details such as description and url to a table in the database. Then it associates the image record with a particular project. This means I can link multiple projects or blogs to one image. To display them I use AJAX to grab the matching image URL's from the db and display them as thumbnails in the image panel. Will start adding more images soon.
