A long time ago I needed to come up with a username for an online game and so I decided to go with Juje007. And when I got into web development I wanted to have my own domain so I bought juje007.be. But this domain was starting to get old and not so long ago I decided to drop the “007” part of my username because that was starting to get really old and I’m not that into James Bond any more. So that’s why I decided to buy the domain juje.co. But the problem still was that using my username for a portfolio website was not going to be so professional. So that’s why I also decided to buy jurjen.co. So from now on everything from juje007.be will be moved to jurjen.co and to juje.co.
But the domain was not only thing that needed a revisit. The theme was also getting old and needed a redesign and since I learned a lot about Bootstrap I also decided to do the design with Bootstrap instead of Foundation. So that’s why you are now looking at a new and wonderful design.
Beside a new design and domain I also decided to change my homepage to a portfolio website to simple show of all my projects. So the main site has been compressed into 1 single page for convenience.
But there will be more. I didn’t just revamp everything there will be a lot more on the new website and here is a list of what will be new:
So after a long time of no updates I decided to update my website/blog.
The reason was that there were a lot of issues with my website for instance the carousel wasn’t working anymore and the twitter widget did not work either anymore.
The carousel stopped working because the jQuery library that I use uses jQuery 1.9 and the carousel used deprecated functions in jQuery 1.9. So I needed to update or change the carousel and I ended up installing the Nivo Slider an awesome slider which is standing under the MIT licence.
The reason why the Twitter widget stopped working was because Twitter changed their API. So from now on you need authenticate trough Oauth to do anything reading, writing, updating or deleting. And because Oauth is not that easy and I have no experience with it I decided to download a Twitter widget and to convert my footer bar into a widget bar. But because there were some things on the bar which used data from the other site in the WordPress Multisite network and the native widgets from WordPress don’t support Multisite I needed to download external widgets and even create my own Multisite Pages Widget.
But after working hard and completing everything you can see the biggest change in the footer with a working Twitter widget and a bit changed design for the footer.
My hopes for WordPress is that they will add native support for Multisite widgets.
