|Webmasters / Cost Of Registering A .edu.ng Domain by yawatide(f): 3:59pm On Jan 15, 2017|
Hello my fellow web developers, I am in need of a .edu.ng domain. I am aware of the requirements but not the cost. Please let me know the cost, if you have an idea.
I hate to be rude but please, no responses along the lines of, "I can help you with this. Send me an email or call me at...". I can assure you that I will not contact you and would rather call 100 web hosts to the answer than contact you privately. Again, no offense meant
Share your answer here publicly so that all can benefit.
Thanks in advance
|Webmasters / Re: Coding Is Not For Everyone! by yawatide(f): 6:54pm On Oct 17, 2016|
I totally agree. Just like education isn't for everyone, coding isn't for everyone either.
Also, let's not forget - those in control of things are pushing science (STEM for short) for a particular reason - by limiting the left side of your brain (which is the creative side), they are eliminating those who would otherwise challenge the system. Rather, they want people who, like lab mice, will become automatons and robots, doing what the master says (right-brained people are more structured and less likely to buck the system).
Now, before you start arguing with me based on emotions as opposed to facts:
1) Look around you and notice in how many schools the arts are being pushed aside for STEM
2) Though this applies to the US, note that since we are studying based on the European educational system (and Americans, the white ones at least) have European ancestry, the following quote still applies from John Rockefeller, "I don't want a nation of thinkers. I want a nation of workers."
I know that my post is very deep and will most likely go against what most people (hopefully, you are not one of them) have been programmed to think. So again, I implore that if you must disagree with me, do so on a factual and not emotional basis.
|Webmasters / Re: 4 Common Mistakes When Building Website by yawatide(f): 6:48pm On Oct 17, 2016|
You might also want to add making sure the website is mobile-friendly. A good book in this area is Steve Krug's "Don't Make me Think"
|Webmasters / Re: HELP: Suggestions And Corrections From Webmaster by yawatide(f): 5:48pm On Oct 14, 2016|
It could most likely be because none of the news links (at least the ones I randomly clicked) are originally yours. You are linking to outside news sources. Adsense doesn't like that. The same thing happened to me over 4 or so years ago on a news site that I actually am still running. It was okay for them when I was only making like $100 a year. The minute I started making $100 a month, I guess red flags went off and the account was suspended.

Anyone tried OpenCart? I've been using it for a while and like it. In particular, I love its low learning curve...
|Webmasters / Re: How Do I Do This On My Site by yawatide(f): 10:43pm On Sep 16, 2016|
By CMS, I mean WordPress, Joomla, etc
|Webmasters / Re: How Would You Design This Better? by yawatide(f): 10:42pm On Sep 16, 2016|
Steve Krug, yes, my bad. I guess I had Daniel Craig my mind at the time I was posting

|Webmasters / Re: How Do I Do This On My Site by yawatide(f): 7:22pm On Sep 15, 2016|
Sounds like what you need (in the spirit of, "don't repeat yourself") is a content management system and/or forum software.
|Webmasters / Re: How Would You Design This Better? by yawatide(f): 7:21pm On Sep 15, 2016|
With so many websites out there probably offering the same thing as you, you probably want people to at least see what the site's about. The minute I went there and was forced to register, I immediately clicked my back button. Waste of my time. You might want to correct that for starters.
There is a very good book I read years ago titled, "Don't make me think" by Daniel Krug. Seek the latest edition and read it. You will find it to be very useful, relative to what you do on your website to not only get visitors to come but to stay as well.
|Webmasters / Re: Bootstrap Begingner by yawatide(f): 5:13pm On Aug 10, 2016|
I think the bootstrap site has a tutorial. You can also visit YouTube and I am sure there are tons of videos on the topic. Other than that, I would advise that you experiment by adding, say, an image, refreshing and seeing what happens, etc. Finally, if you don't have it already, I would download Mozilla Firefox and take advantage of it's responsive view window
|Webmasters / Re: Nairaland Forum Rival: Advise Pls.... by yawatide(f): 3:59am On Aug 05, 2016|
I would disagree that NL is "undefeatable". MySpace was defeated by FaceBook, etc etc. Will it be tough? Sure...But that doesn't make it impossible.
Just have a good Unique Selling Point, offering something that NL doesn't and/or improve upon what NL is doing now, and you should be good to go.
|Webmasters / Re: How can i make this site better? by yawatide(f): 8:52pm On Aug 03, 2016|
Not bad for a first creation. Yes, it showed up well on my cell and desktop. By the way, as an FYI, you might want to use a framework like twitter bootstrap for all your responsive websites. Even if you start off with the default template, it will definitely speed up dev time for you.
|Webmasters / Re: How can i make this site better? by yawatide(f): 9:39pm On Aug 02, 2016|
IMHO, given that pretty much everyone is on the internet with a smartphone, a desktop score of 60 would be the least of my worries. There are other, more important issues that need to be addressed:
1) A lot of opening tags don't have accompanying closing tags
2) use of deprecated tags like CENTER. Use CSS and text-align instead
3) use of multiple BR tags where again, CSS would have come in handy
4) Reference to files that don't exist:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style .css"/> - note the space here b/w "style" and "."
5) Use of images where text would be preferred (for example, phone and email in the top banner). Again, CSS can be used to style a similar image result
|Webmasters / Re: Responsive Emails - To Implement Or Not To Implement by yawatide(f): 6:45pm On Jul 28, 2016|
Not to brag or boast but I am well versed in the matter. If you saw my very first post (after years of absence), I said I intend to reinvigorate the board, relative to posts where we can all learn something, as opposed to advertisements (basically, spam). That's how it used to be 10 years or so ago.
At any rate, I posted this to get others points of view on the topic. In the end, we all learn. IMHO, if I were to list mine, then it might be the end of the thread as I might end up listing everything that's out there. On the contrary, when others post, as is my style, I will chime in to either add and/or dispute. Again, in the end, we all learn a thing or two.
As to what I mean by HTML emails, I mean the emails you send out that have images, formatted text, etc. This is as opposed to emails that are strictly text. HTML emails add a level of interactivity and is more pleasant to the eye, IMHO.
Oya, let's hear what you have to say after you've done your research.

How does this add to the general discourse? Please respond to the question at hand. I would love to read your thoughts on the matter...
|Webmasters / Responsive Emails - To Implement Or Not To Implement by yawatide(f): 6:39pm On Jul 27, 2016|
I hope and trust we are all using responsive web design (RWD) for our web projects. Given that everything is going mobile these days (and smart TV as well), it only makes sense that we take the RWD route. How about our HTML emails? Are we still using the standard templates or are we also RWD in this regard? Regardless of your approach, let's discuss the pros and the cons and what approach you prefer/implement...
Even the jQuery js minified file, for example, is a few KB in size. One needs to weigh the cost vs benefit of using jQuery in this instance. In other words, is it worth including jQuery.js when all you are doing is validating a contact form field?
I know you are being a bit sarcastic when you say, "silly". Remember, when all you have is a hammer, everything is a nail. Each framework has its advantages, disadvantages and uses. Also, browsers have gotten pretty good over time. Also, thanks to, for example, lazy loading, you don't have to include every single js or css file at once. Finally, you can also improve performance, by, for example, including you js calls at the bottom of the file instead of at the top. Chrome's web developer tools comes in very handy here.
More comments please. There may be no right or wrong answer. All the same, it is good to get a feel for how we think. I am beginning to enjoy this board again already
Your answer is at the core of what I am driving at
More comments please...

It's been a while. I have been off mostly because whenever I come in, like today, all I see is one ad or another, or request for services. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with either category of posts and I am guilty of the same crime every now and then. When I joined in 2008 though (Wow! Almost 10 years now), it was all about sharing knowledge, acquiring knowledge and debating best practices. Let me see if I can revive the tradition, he he:
Oya, let's get back to learning something
