Why the Change?
I'd like to give a few shout outs
So what you are seeing throughout my website was all completely developed by me. Of course this doesn't include the Google forms and the external widgets such as for Twitter. In addition, I have decided to use Nabble
for this blog due to it's embeddablility. In the future I will consider programming something myself but Nabble seems to work really well and allows me to get by without a database. As for HTML and CSS I have used various articles which were found through Google searches but the most helpful resource was W3Schools
. The best part about my website is that it doesn't cost me a thing! Of course, I am paying for the domain name codisimus.com but I am using 000webhost
for hosting and the free plan is all that I need for now. If you are interested in creating your own website, these are the tools that I would recommend. I would also like to thank my cousin Justin
who came up with the original website design and is doing some graphic design for the site and my plugins.
So what's planned for the future?
Now that I have my new website up and running, I hope to use it a lot more. I will be posting lots of various content on it, mostly in the form of blog posts. I have several tools, Bukkit plugins, and other fun things that I create from time to time. I would like to share these things with the world so that others can enjoy them as well. After reading a few posts you will begin to understand what I mean. I also hope to write tutorials and articles to expand the Learn Java
page of my website.
The next step for codisimus.com is to move all of my Bukkit plugins from BukkitDev
to the Minecraft Plugins
portion of the site. This will keep all of my plugin documentation in a single location as opposed to split between several forums. Nabble
can also be used to create Forums so I may create a forum to replace the option of posting questions and tickets through BukkitDev.
If you wish to stay up to date
If you are wondering what else will be coming, Follow me on Twitter
. I will be announcing most of the new content through tweets. Each time I add a new Bukkit plugin to my website it will be announced. However, I have not yet decided how to handle new plugin versions. I do not want my twitter feed to become overly saturated with Minecraft plugin updates.
Feel free to contact me with any questions by replying to this blog post or using the Contact form at the bottom of each web page. I'd love to hear feedback about the site and how you think it could be improved. I am working on adding social media links to the website but it involves some tricky CSS to create an accordion style sidebar. Stay tuned...
Until next time.
