Artefact 3 – website

I always thought that building a website was a HTML filled job.  I spent several months this semester learning all about codes and the finer points of closed brackets.  However, I also used WordPress to build this site which was a lot easier than building code.  It still had limitations though.

It took a little while to get comfortable with the menu tabs, but I do mean a little time, as in maybe about an hour.  Once I had figured out where everything was, it was plain sailing from there.

You can see my first Weebly website here.  Not bad for a few hours design work.  And most of that was choosing themes and layouts.   The ease of use of this site would make it my personal choice for website design in future.  Sorry WordPress, I may be moving…
