Thanks for your comments on our review. It’s nice to see that somewhere someone out there might be reading them. Have tried to encourage my artist son to do something like you’re doing, but no luck. Your website is looking crisp and clean - well designed.

It's been nearly two years since you told me you couldn't see the hotlinked-from-discord images on my site and I responded so unnecessarily flippantly that you deleted your comment. You may not remember this but I do, sorry, you were absolutely right that it's bad practice and I am *finally* going through and fixing it

testing out a script for putting breadcrumbs at the top of the page that had to be tried on the live site (it uses the url of the page, you see.)

Also, finally actually hosting my art ON MY SITE. It's shameful I waited this long. Years ago poor cuberton tried to tell me that a lot of my externally linked images were broken from their point of view (since tumblr/discord were blocked on their school computers) and I gave some unforgivably flippant answer like "that sounds like a you problem". god no, I'm the webmaster, fixing that is absolutely my job

I finally passed 25% storage space usage and had a brief moment of panic before realizing that using up barely a fourth of the site's storage really does Not matter. (If I'm smart about this refactor, I might get it back down again, too.)

Ladies, gentlemen, and neocitizens: those of you who switched to a static site generator, how much hell was that transition?

I want consistent control over headers/footers, but I also have at least 3 totally distinct "sub-sites" that I don't want to mess with, and do NOT want to have to convert my stuff to markup.

I used a static site generator for my blog, and it was, quite frankly, a *massive* pain in the arse to update β€” that’s why I switched away from Neocities for the actual hosting side of things, because I just wanted to use WordPress and get it over with. I also used an SSG for some other pages but it turned out to be easier to just edit raw HTML in the long run

Actually a preprocessor, but piss-easy: http://htp.sourceforge.net/ - pretty simple, works on only the files you specify. Gets pages looking the same, or you can use if-else statements in the template for variation. Custom macros, too. Is nice.

taking a webware class and it's making me want to tear this dang thing down and start from scratch. Hmmm....

I will not do this on the live site of course (rule of webmastermancy no. 1: NO UNDER CONSTRUCTION PAGES. Unless you are editing IN the browser, a page is on the live web when it is finished, or not at all.)

(generally, rule zero should be "edit offline" but this is neocities. rule negative one is make your site however you damn please, if at the end of the day you've created something new that you like and can show to other people. Hobbyists are allowed to pick and choose which rules to follow and break.)

Oh, expect 95% of the same content, and at least the *option* to view it in the old CSS style. I just want to make everything properly spaced, alt-texted, validated, and future-proofed.
