Updates to the site
On the rare chance that you’ve visited this site a few times, you might have noticed that its design has changed more often than its content. That’s the risk with this being a hobby project and me finding it much more satisfying fiddling around with the design rather than posting stuff.
Now I’m updating the design and the functionality of the site again (and actually posting something—hurray!). The reason is that I might actually have some real use for the site in the near future. I’ve also found a way to manage the site much more easily. More on both these things in later posts.
So far I’ve mostly updated the looks (which still might look wonky on mobile devices). But the following content and features are planned (a big reason for me writing this is so that I will actually remember to do these things):
Fix so that project and publication pages actual contain information. In doing so I will implement a tag system so that all posts relating to a project or publication can show up on these pages.
Change the way posts are previewed and listed. Right now the small text that show up under each heading is just the first few lines of each post. This causes some problems. And often these first few lines are not very informative. In changing this I will also change the way posts are listed. Right now this listing is based on when the post was first posted. But even with the very few posts that I have, I notice that I update them a lot. I will therefore have the sorting be based on the latest update and make it easier to see what each update entailed.
Planned posts and content:
The tools (e.g. software) I use for work—and why I think you should maybe do the same.
Publish some material that I had to remove from an article. I found this material quite interesting; the reviewers did not.
The article of which that material isn’t a part of wasn’t published under open access. The licence does permit a draft of the manuscript to be posted though. I thought I’d show how to make such a manuscript look nice.
I have probably forgotten half of the things I had planned (but then I’ll update this post—I think). I have no time span for all this. Most things are quite simple, so hopefully it won’t take too long.
