The little things

I’ve actually really liked the feedback process here. It’s very collaborative and helpful to get the perspective of others who are on my level to get an idea of what they are seeing and what I’m not. I also liked giving the feedback — it was comforting knowing everyone else was having problems similar to mine and I enjoyed helping others get through those problems.

I’ve been trying to button up the little things on my site, including this little dropdown arrow that Greg pointed out, doesn’t appear when the menu is activated. Spoiler alert: I haven’t figured it out yet.

From what I’ve been able to tell, the menu is using a state-based CSS indicator (not sure if that’s the right word) that is hated online. I’m able to manipulate the element by calling the class and adding a box (that’s one piece of customization I did), but I have no idea how to access it when the menu is expanded. I eventually just put a post on a forum for the site and am waiting for a response from the folks who know better!

I’m still thinking of ways to improve the site — I embedded my resume in order to keep people on the site, per Greg’s suggestion, and I’m playing around with more styling like typefaces and getting rid of the bold for hyperlinks.
