I’ve obviously learned a few things since then. If I can get this CMS to do what I want it to do, it will likely replace WordPress as my CMS, even on my local computer. That’s a big IF.
I had to clarify that. I don’t need a template engine. HTML5 is pretty easy to manipulate without using one. First, I looked at the HTML5 Boilerplate template and then, the responsive template at Initializr.
I don’t like the orange color scheme, so I need to change it quickly. I don’t need the aside and some of the other things provided, but I won’t have to change much. I’m going to use a full-width content page and Slidebars to display any menus I need.
I plan to share what I’ve done when it’s all done. Anyone wanting to use this will use a modern browser. Supporting all the old versions of Internet Explorer is a waste of my time.
It depends on what’s going on around me. I get depressed at times and when I do, I refuse to code anything new. That’s when I focus on fixing minor things that tend to annoy me.
I don’t have to spend hours out and about paying bills or shopping until next month. If I can stay focused on the task at hand, I’ll complete my CMS project by then.
By the way, I already have a name for my CMS. I won’t give it away, however, until I make it public.
