Search - "new website"
On his first week at job, the junior says:
Hey guys! Check out this new website I found! You'll thank me later.27
New devRant web app for desktop is now live! (https://devrant.com - the .com will now redirect to feed if you are logged in) Let us know what you think, and especially if you spot any bugs (very likely some slipped through). Some cool new features are still in development, will be out shortly.70
Stupidest client ever:
I once had a client that requested me a new website, all went well and get paid.
After a month our two, he called and requested a change on basically all pages. I sent him a estimate of 2h, he approved, signed a contract and I've made the changes. He never paid me that changes. After 2 months ignoring my calls and emails I've rollback to the pre-changes website. He called me anything you can think off and that I would be sorry for done that... I was like... WTF??
- Pay me and I'll put the changes online.
- you will be sorry. See you in court.
We went to court because of FUCKING 200€...
Court decision? The client was obligated to pay me the 200€ and all the court expenses...22
Today I presented a client with their new website.
Feedback from the owner was "I fucking love it".
Got a cash bonus and a bottle of champagne before leaving.
Today was a good day!21
Client: we want our logo in our new website
Me: ok no problem just give me the....
Client: but we dont want ppl to be able to download it.
Me: excuse me but that is not posible cuz...
Client: where is your faith! Nothing is imposible.
Me: proceed to stare in disbelief....29
A client called
Client: Hello Mr. Can you come to our office today?
Me: Yes sure
In fews hours I was there
Client: Check this email we are getting every day
It was email from spammers who asking to redesigning their website because it was not responsive
Me: 🧐Thinking ‘valid point !’
Me: So what you need me to do for you then?
Client: We need you to redesign the site
Lol - thanks spammers for bringing in new client13

Me: (Types in John Smith)
Email: Set a new password.
Me: (Types "youaresostupid")

Me: Money plz~
Me: (wtf, then remembers i changed his email password) Fine then.
1. There is 2 factor authentication enabled. : Got it?
2. The website sent plaintext password.
3. He is just pure idiot.
4. I didn't got the money.
5. I am now a h4x0r12
classmate: Hey, "friend" told me you do freelance website development. right? I need to create a new website and need your help.
Me: umm... OK... what's it about?
Classmate: It's for my dad's friend's business.
Me: OK. but I will charge the standard rate.
classmate: No... I will make it myself. I just want your help.
Me(Internally): ...not again...
Me: Do it yourself then.
Classmate: It will be quick. an hour or two max.
Classmate: And one of my uncle who did IT told me that c++ is faster. can we use that instead of HTML?
classmate: you don't know shit.
... classmate walks away...
This guy somehow manages to get As in exams (mostly cheating. and our papers are shitty theory papers which you can mug up. so that helps) and in a year will have an IT degree.56
When you're creating new website and Chrome asks you if you want to translate the page from Latin.3
Client : Hey make me five page website with blabalabla blabla blabla blablablablablabla that should be easy for you! for 10$?
me : for 10$ i can create a new folder and thats it and i am not gonna call it project i will name it asdaddaddadsas!15
One day a client sent me gifts and a sweet letter just because they loved their new website so much. I just about cried. I work in an industry where acknowledgment and thankfulness by clients are extremely rare. 😱😭9
The Company I work for has a new Website.
Me: opens inspector, changed an elements position.
Boss: "Stop! We paid so much for this you'll destroy everything."
Me: reload page, smile at him.7
Client: Can you provide some kind of guaranteed timeline that you're going to be able to move our website to our new servers with the optimizations implemented? I know you said it should take a week, but we have 3 weeks to get this moved over and we cannot afford to be double billed. I'm waiting to fire up the new server until you can confirm.
Me: As I said, it SHOULD take about a week, but that's factoring in ONLY the modifications being made for optimization and a QA call to review the website. This does not account for your hosting provider needing to spin up a new server.
We also never offered to move your website over to said new server. I sent detailed instructions for your provider to move a copy of the entire website over and have it configured and ready to point your domain over to, in order to save time and money since your provider won't give us the access necessary to perform a server-to-server transfer. If you are implying that I need to move the website over myself, you will be billed for that migration, however long it takes.
Client: So you're telling me that we paid $950 for 10 hours of work and that DOESN'T include making the changes live?
Me: Why would you think that the 10 hours that we're logged for the process of optimizing your website include additional time that has not been measured? When you build out a custom product for a customer, do you eat the shipping charges to deliver it? That is a rhetorical question of course, because I know you charge for shipping as well. My point is that we charge for delivery just as you do, because it requires our time and manpower.
All of this could have been avoided, but you are the one that enforced the strict requirement that we cannot take the website down for even 1 hour during off-peak times to incorporate the changes we made on our testbed, so we're having to go through this circus in order to deliver the work we performed.
I'm not going to give you a guarantee of any kind because there are too many factors that are not within our control, and we're not going to trap ourselves so you have a scapegoat to throw under the bus if your boss looks to you for accountability. I will reiterate that we estimate it would take about a week to implement, test and run through a full QA together, as we have other clients within our queue and our time must be appropriately blocked out each day. However, the longer you take to pull the trigger on this new server, the longer it will take on my end to get the work scheduled within the queue.
Client: If we get double billed, we're taking that out of what we have remaining to pay you.
Me: On the subject of paying us, you signed a contract acknowledging that you would pay us the remaining 50% after you approved the changes, which you did last week, in order for us to deliver the project. Thank you for the reminder that your remaining balance has not yet been paid. I'll have our CFO resend the invoice for you to remit payment before we proceed any further.
I love it when clients give me shit. I just give it right back.6
The new Dutch mass surveillance law goes into action on the first of May. I'll of course have a good security setup ready but that does not stop the bulk data collection.
I just setup a website which (still in English at the moment) requests a random search result from bing, google or DuckDuckGo every 3 seconds.
Will work on making it more 'real' :)
If stopping the surveillance isn't an option, let's add more data to filter out for them!39
7 years of "learning" "IT" at school...
What have I learned: Excel, Word, PowerPoint....
School started. I got the new book and we are doing more than MS Office!
We are making a website
Had a former customer call a few (10) years ago, furious that we shut down their website.
Me: but you moved your website to another provider 2 years ago? We dont even provide webhosting any more?
Turns out, when they moved we put a redirect to their new site on our server.
During the summer this server was decommisoned due to a failing harddrive but since we no longer had any active customers on it we just pulled the plug.
The customer had never actually redirected their domain name. :)
When we sent them a copy of their own cancellation letter we got an "oh hell, sorry".
Hi there fellas,
I'm new to devrant and I'll like to share with you my first story.
It was my first payed job. A good friend of mine (media designer in print) called me "My customer needs a website, do you think you can do that?"
At this time I've never build a single page, so my answer was "Of course, easy-peasy".
She told me it was a family business and a nationwide player in finance sector.
I met the CEO, did my research and build a prototype. Well, the CEO and his staff liked it so I finished the website and prepared for the first review.
I booted the laptop and tried to connect to their network. There was none. They just never had a wireless connection not a single cable in the entire office. That was the time I realized that I work for a family business.
The CEO was an ancient guy who probably saw Jesus Christ hanging on the cross in personal and internet is weird thing controlled by the devil himself.
I took the laptop and went over to the CEOs personal office, plugged the network cable out of his Computer and into the laptop. Finally I could show them what I've done.
He took a look at it and called for his assistant. "Might you print that website for us?" That was my second wtf moment.
The assistant returned with a half chopped down and bleached rainforest that contained an image of their new website.
I tried to tell him that a website on paper can't show him the functions n shit, but he looked at me like I was talking two foreign languages at once.
So we reviewed the website on paper and his one and only problem was the size of the letters. "I can't read it well, please make the text bigger" At this moment I wanted to hit my forehead on the table and tell him that it is normal to have readings difficulties when you are walking the shores of Styx.
At the end everything went well, but I realized that dealing with customers is a lot more difficult than developing something for them. The future should prove me right.
My first story about my first job.
Thank you for reading 😊12
Just read this in German craigslist:
I make your new fancy website...only 99€...no wordpress, cuz thats for blogs only...
I program object oriented in HTML/CSS!7
When you are creating new design for your website and everything works fine and then you see that you browser is zoomed on 150%😫😭6
*has finals to study for*
Me: I could study... Or I could write my website..
*create new project*
1. Create user on website.
2. Receives mail with username and password.
3. Changes password.
4. Receives mail with new password.
5. Delete account and look for another service.3
What an awful day :(
The server where I host my 4 clients websites crashed.
Unable to reboot from the console.
I contact the support. 15 minutes later: "we'll look at this"
No news for 1 week despite my messages.
Then... 1st ticket escalation... 2nd ticket escalation... 3rd ticket escalation...
Answer: "Sorry, your server is down and cannot be repaired."
I ask "is there any way to get my data back?". Answer: "No, because we would shutdown the whole bay and all our clients would be impacted".
I subscribe to another server, at another provider.
I look at my backups... shit, the last one is 4 month ago!!
I restore the first website: OK
I restore the second website: OK
I restore the third website: My new server is "too recent" and not compatible. with this old Wordpress. Fuck! I'll look at this later...
I restore the fourth website: database is empty!! What??? I look at the SQL backup for this site... it failed...
I lost ALL my 4th client data!!!
I'm sooooo piece of crap!14
C : Hi, I will send you the minor fixes with new images soon. Can you update for me?
Me : Yes sure.
C : We would also like to launch the website tomorrow.
Me : Oh cool. Then I'll connect it to the live domain after the updates.
C : My boss also likes to press a button and launch the website....
Me : ... umm ...18
My company needs a new Website.
ME: Boss, let me do it. It's just a simple static site with a few pages. **Dreaming about a fast and beautiful site**
BOSS: Your time is too valuable. Nobody is paying us for our website. The apprentice will do it.
Few weeks later... Wordpress page! Page loads in > 20sec. Over 150 request for css and js... It's fast on Mobile, because it just breaks and loads only half of the content.
So ashamed working in this Company. No sane customer will ever do business with us, when he sees this stackpile of shit.10
This kind of bullshit advertising is the reason everybody thinks we can do that every new whimp of the client within a few minutes.
Fuck off! Making real custom websites/apps takes time, planning, design, coding and testing. Its not just pressing a few buttons.
Translation: Make a website? 30 minutes.17
Saying yes to people who want a website for $100.
I've learned my lesson, all brand new websites now start at $1000.10
I'm building a website for a new company and the boss doesn't understand technology at all. says he doesn't want me using any html because it is old and I have to use python because it's a 'hot language.' I try to explain that html is for websites and he replies 'not mine.'19
--- Save some time with Google's .new-Domains ---
A few days ago, Google announced their new '.new' domains.
By using them you can save plenty of time when creating new Docs, Sheets, Slides, Sites or Forms.
So instead of going to Google Drive and creating the document there, users can just input the corresponding URL into the browser!
Here are a few examples:
> 'doc.new' or 'docs.new' or 'documents.new' to create a new Google Docs document (https://doc.new/)
> 'sheet.new' or 'sheets.new' or 'spreadsheet.new' to create a new Google Spreadsheets document (https://sheet.new/)
> 'site.new' or 'sites.new' or 'website.new' to create a new Google Sites website (https://site.new/)
> 'slide.new' or 'slides.new' or 'deck.new' or 'presentation.new' to create a new Google Slides document (https://slide.new/)
> 'form.new' or 'forms.new' to create a new Google Forms form (https://form.new/)
This is also useful for creating special bookmarks in the browser!35
New client wanted us to redo their site and boost their SEO because "nobody has ever used our contact form".
Looking at their current site, turns out their contact form is POSTed to an HTML page, that obviously does 0 processing on it. Like tossing it on the trash bin.
Their current website is done by a company that claim they're experts on web design for our clients sector.
Still haven't stopped laughing.7
That's a new one on me fixing a website on my phone whilst on a train , internet dropping in an out
I did it 😎11
Me, a 19 year old student at a meeting with a "potential new project" today:
Her: So, we would like a website where people could rent a conference room, and pay for it on the website. After they have paid, we want automated emails to go out to us and the person that rents the room. We basically want an automated rental system.
Me: Sounds fair, what kind of budget do you have in mind?
Her: Well because you are a student and you still live at home, we have a budget of about €200 (~$220). We thought it'd be fair because you don't really need an income yet.
At that point I slowly tried to fade away from the meeting... Please help me 😭22
I’m doing this guys website for FREE. As a favor to my mom. This is the shit I have to deal with as thanks.
He gave me some images he wanted on his new site I’m developing on Tuesday. Woke up to this email.9
when it's 36*C / 97*F in the city and you pack your laptop into your backpack and flee on to the swiss alps. To work on a new website at a beautiful landscape, on green meadows, cows and agreeable 18*C / 64*F.
And getting payed for this... This is life!12
Well there I (the 15 year old me) sat sat the table having breakfast with my girlfriend and her parents when they asked me: "hey aren't you good with PC's? Our company needs a new website" - 4 month later I started an one month internship at their company and built their website which is still in use (which is bad)4
Last week, someone contacted me, he said he needed me to fix the existing code on a new WordPress website because the developer did a messy job, so I thought to myself, it can't be that bad, requested for the SSH access and got into the server.
I was wrong, some people really know how to fuck shit up.
I don't want to go into details but there were legit more than 50 plugins installed and activated on the website for no good reason and all the pages took about 45 minutes each to render if not more, so you can literally request a new page, start making coffee and use the washing machine and if you are lucky to have spent 45 minutes, return to a fully loaded page.
For a new WordPress website, it seemed really old.
It was almost as if this developer had a line of code that looked like this:
@Import 'all the bad programming practices ever and the ones yet to be invented';24
*Alice mostly finishes her new website*
Everyone: "Yay! Cool!"
Alice's mother: "I can't read it it's in english."
Alice's mother the next day: "I can't read it, it would be interesting for german people, too."
Fuck you. Just fuck you. Or finally learn a little bit english. But mostly fuck you.25
Already existing website, I was asked to do a few things to redo. Code is a mess, 0 comments, oldschool technology. Completely static html site of a small company, nothing extreme.
Client: okay, could you please add 2 more items to the navbar for the 2 new pages?
Me: yes, here they are. Since it was already full, font size had to shrink.
Client: it's okay
>> Fast forward 2 weeks, full of similarly easy modifications.
Client: could you make the font size of the navbar larger?
Me: not really, we will lose responsivity
Client: do it anyway!
>> Fast forward to next day
Client calls me that it is urgent to 'do something immediately' with the navbar because it is broken and I am a 'horrible webdesigner' for making a mess of her website. I was told that it is not her job to make it good look and that I should 'use my eyes better'.
After 2 minutes of a lecture on webdesign she let me tell her how a responsive website should look like and to achieve that we should better restart the whole website. At that point I was the idiot who just wants to get more money and that I won't be able to do that since I am already unable to finish these few tiny things she asked for.5
My first rant was about this topic.
I once made a program using C++ which would allow you to make HTML pages.
I made a menu using switch () like this:
1. Add Title to website
2. Add Image
3. Add New Line
4. Add paragraph
This was the most useless and stupid thing I ever made5
A client asked me to work on a new website for them. They setup a WordPress site with a basic theme and asked for the following additions:
- Job application system
- Employee management
- Employee scheduling/holidays
- Online clock-in/out and pay calculation
- Training videos/modules for employees with progress tracking
And their budget... $75
I am a back-end developer, never suggested otherwise. My company is a firm of 50 people and owner hired a web designer to code our website. And it got hacked. Badly. So boss tells me to check if I can fix it. I take a look at the PHP and boy, written in PHP3, copy paste code from all over the place, hell the admin panel is a clone from a 2012 tutorial, nothing that remotely stares at the DB is checked for SQL, and now he wants me to design a new website, rewrite everything in PHP7 and had the balls to say "I know it's not your job, but it's a job, so do it"5
Apple at its finest. Sold the iPhone I used to own. Wanted to remove from iCloud. Open chrome on my Android device and was greeted with unsupported browser. Funny thing is it works if I tick open as desktop website.
Ffs apple. Your safari browser is the new IE of browsers. Yes my device is supported. Yes for Christ sake it can render stuff. It's not an old Nokia... Who even thought it was remotely a good idea to restrict mobile access...5
The new website I developed just went live !
Now all I can think about is the possibility of there being unfound bugs.2
I am from Germany.
And I wanna make a (new) website.
This is fucking exhausting 😩
(Do I have to translate it to english as well? The site will be bilingual).
I miss the time when I was a careless teenage who would just code and not care about bureaucracy...7
The reason why I changed my username ( I'll just be honest here )
I was working on a website. I noticed that entries were submitting yesterday but today new entries were not showing up on database. It was like my database refused to insert new rows but there was no new error in log. I kept trying for almost half an hour, read all the answers on stackoverflow, read docs, tried different methods. Nothing worked. I was fucked up. Completely fucked up.
In frustration, I just stared my database for 10 mins without a single blink, and then I noticed this thing 'showing 25 out of 78 rows'
I clicked on 'show all'
I felt retarded.
Okay I can give an excuse that last time I saw a database was a year ago, but still.. how retarded you need to be to not see this FUCKIN 'SHOW ALL' when it is on the TOP of the FUCKIN TABLE!!6
The new w3c standard "CSS Houdini" gives you access to the css engine and let's you write your own css properties. That means no more polyfils, new exciting website designs and more possibilities and control on how the css is rendered on all browsers.7
As a student, I was doing an internship, during the summer, in web development. I was building a new version of a website, using Django.
Everything goes well. It works great on the development server, supervisor is super pumped about it. For bureaucratic reasons, I'm not allowed to put it into production. I write a detailed doc and they say they'll handle it.
Internship is over. I keep receiving calls for help from my former supervisor. The production team keeps failing, again and again. (sort of fed up) I finally go back there to help them. The website is finally up.
A week later, it is taken down. Default Apache page shows up when browsing. Never heard from them ever again.
Now all I have left is disappointment and an experience I can't showcase 😣13
Wanted to make a website with some of my friends about whatever kid thing we were into at the time. None of our parents cared, it was the 90s and nobody took the internet seriously.
Copied and pasted bits of html into notepad and FTPed them to some free webhost over dialup. The website lasted three weeks -- my friends got bored, I got hooked.
A few years later I found myself wondering why some websites used ".php" instead of ".html". I discovered this shiny new thing called PHP 4. Built a website for some video game I was into using it. Spent the next two years teaching myself everything there was to know.
Took programming in high school. Chose CS over mechanical engineering because I liked the university better. Got an internship which turned into a job which turned into a career.1
Me and my girlfriend just broke up.
I was sad at first but now I can really start focusing on some really interesting projects.
Such as my new secret website that I will release soon. I think you'll like it.10

Best client ever:
Yesterday I meet my new client. He need portfolio website for his logistics business.
So I meet him and explain my previous experience in website development.
After 1hour he gave me advance 50% of total cost.2
Congratulations? For fucking what. So you built a wix website. Now youre a web developer and the whole world knows it, my services aren't needed anymore.
Congratulations you bypassed half a decade in 50 hours a week of coding, then you have the bone and fucking marrow of emailing me because your like buttons are causing users to create a new instagran account. Good one kid.3
Needed devRant font awesome icon for my personal website. Couldn't find. Thought of creating a new issue when I found this..
Request every dev to thumbs up this issue at https://github.com/FortAwesome/...2
"Make us a one-page website for our new company!"
I build the site, to their exact specifications and show it to them
"There's only one page"
"You only asked for one page."
"No, we didn't"
I show them the email they sent me, asking for a one-page site
"Wow, you suck, we are finding another developer!"5
Just ordered Pizza. You get 10% off when ordering via their own website, so I did. They calculated the new price on their site, sent it to PayPal and PayPal did another 10% off...
How's something like that in production?5
Meet 'SBI Online' app from Play Store, in their own words:
What they were supposed to do?
"Experience the new Retail Internet Banking of SBI"
What they do?
"SBI online app will redirect to SBI Retail Internet Banking (online SBI) site"
Why do they have app?
"No need to remember URL",
"Less memory space required on device"
App storage space?
F**king 2.6 MB, just to redirect users to their website, in third-party browser.2
I swear to god if see another "Here's how I made my amazing new website with Wixs" advert on Youtube, I'm going to throw my laptop out the god damn window!
*decides to make a new os*
*goes to their website*
*searches for sources*
I ain't know a single stuff in C/C++ except that printing a string in C is printf and cout something in C++
So we send a quote out to a client to update his website to make it compliant with the new privacy guidelines: SSL encryption, removing external libraries, removing Facebook Plug-ins, all that stuff. We didn't get a response.
On Monday, he called in a panic. "The website does not work, fix immediately!"
I check out the server, what do I see? An SSL cert installed the Friday before... Client decided to do it himself, on a Friday, without testing. He broke something, but cannot tell me exactly what he did.
And somehow he thinks all that is my fault :D4
"Hey guys, i don't have any clients on the website"
"Yup the new guy drop the database"
Goodbye Holydays ...15
My mobile provider doesn't allow me to set a password that contains any other symbol than letters and numbers for the website where you can look at how much data you consumed (and can order new data, change plans, etc.). Are you kidding me. This is making shit insecure, you fucks!17
My University distributes all worksheets over an online system. To access the files one has to download them each time first. So to get rid of all this annoying clicking in the browser, I just programmed a service, which logs onto the website ,crawls trough every folder, searches for new files and downloads them if they do not exist on my computer. Kind of proud as this is pretty much the first really useful program I developed lol8
Old client texted me yesterday: the website and pos system you made does not work anymore... Why ?
I saw that their domain was moved to another host and texted back: "some has moved the domain so that's why."
Client: "how can this be fixed"
Me: "move the domain back"
Client: "but then the new system I bought cannot function".
Me: oh well, then you are in trouble, if the new company you hired to make you a new system and website had been using just a little brain power, this would not happen. Now you have to bring your new system up and working before you open your store...
I could have helped them by pointing a sub domain to the server, but he never ever treated me with respect, and never payed in time, and he did not tell me about this move before he initiated it.
Me: shuts down server and thingking: good luck working with those new "professionals"4
me: boss, the new ssl certificate is ready and working fine in the website.
boss: cool, let me see it ... is wrong, this button must be wide and the color is ugly, do it again and tell me when is the button is fine
me: but, the ssl ...3
Got this rude ass email from an idiot client who thinks I'm solely responsible for figuring out how to link his 3rd party email/newsletter sign up form to his new website without any access to the account. He "doesn't have the time to research". Newsflash asshat, I'm not responsible for your 3rd party shit. Go contact their support. 🙄😑14
My fellow coworker dev just sent a staging site link to our CFO to review some new functionality...
CFO clicks on our corporate HQ link in coworker's email signature instead and berates coworker for sending him the wrong link...
This person is somewhat largely in charge of making decisions that affect our digital marketing, website budgets, and strategy.
I can't make this shit up.6
Received a new client.
"Hi can you help me redesign my website?"
Me: "Sure what's your sites URL?"
(Checking out site before I take clients)
FUUUUUUCCCKKK, now the websites have new features, where no matter how many time you try to go back from their website, they will redirect back to their SHITTY FUCKING WEBSITE. FUUUUCCCKKKK YOU3

Seriously, if you wanted a new design in the first place why didn't you said so?
I think most people are annoyed by the new design of chrome, for all the wrong reasons - I just noticed the TLS indicator lock is now gray when encrypted, giving you the idea of a website being not fully secure imho8
Last year I had a meeting with the newly hired Senior Graphics Designer.
She was presenting the new design of the company's website with all the features she wants.
After a few minutes, I asked her, did you design it as a responsive website?
"What is that?" She said. I said that the website should display or have atleast a design for mobile view and desktop view.
And she replied, "is that a requirement?"
Talks to myself: how the hell we hire designers like this?
PS, she earns 4x my salary5
Hey guys, if you have some time, can you provide feedback on a new website I launched. It aggregates online product reviews and applies AI to them.
Do you think this is a useful website? Thanks in advance!32
FUCK SAFARI!!!!! I am developing our new company website and have a deadline tomorrow. It is built with flexbox WHICH SHOULD WORK EVERYWHERE BY NOW. The new website works FINALLY GREAT in all browsers now and then I just tested it in Safari (which I did not do before) on my mac and SO MANY THInGs doNT WORK! WHATTA FCUK?? I EVEN GOT EVERY THING TO WORK IN EDGE?? Is safari the new explorer?! What happened?!4
I was working on a website for a client and had asked for the login details for the DNS provider so I could update the records to point to the new host.
2 weeks went by with no reply then I got a text saying "Could you take a look at the site? Seems to be down". I explained that I was waiting for him to give me the login details and asked what site he was talking about.
He thought the staging site was the actual website, he was advertising the URL as his new website.
.htpasswd credentials and all.
I had no words.6
I looked into the code of the website of our company. One of the first things I found was that the Login was hardcoded with clear passwords. So everytime a new user needs an account the code has to change.
I still can't understand how people can do that.5
So our university website was recently refurbished with new design. But fucking hell it's bad. Not only the whole website is full of bugs, the design choices are extremely poor.
Sometimes, when I open a course page, it opens a modal with undefined as it's title. And I have to click close button ten times to close the modal.
I can't even blame university. The guy was a former student and Uni probably trusted him. What a retard!5
NO. NO. A THOUSAND TIMES: NO.
I clicked on this out of genuine curiosity to see if someone was finally trying to discourage people from annoying the shit out of website visitors. A summary of the suggestions in their article as to what to use popups for:
1. Announce new products/services, features, policy updates, new blog posts
2. Promote your sales or coupons (including countdowns)
3. Encourage people to input their e-mail address / subscribe, perhaps also offering some vague thing they will get as a reward for doing so
4. Contact forms (e.g. support etc.)
5. Prompt visitors to confirm their age before showing content
6. Login/register forms
7. Display social media "share" buttons when a visitor has scrolled a certain way through the page content.
8. Display cookie consent prompt.
9. Help guide visitors to the part of the website they want to go to.
Of these: 1, 2, 3, and 7 need to die for sure. If a website does any of these things I'm inclined to immediately leave and never return. 8 is a little annoying but seems a necessity.
Someone even replied to the Tweet saying that popups are annoying, the company responded with "let's change that!"
Blank portions of the screenshot are to avoid promoting the company unintentionally as a result of the rant ;)4
The new company to hate is cloudflare. If someone uses them all your https traffic is visible to cloudflare and there is no other way to use that website, and they’re taking over like crazy.14
I wanted to let everyone know that I finally decided to release the new version of my website! 😄
TableTopFinder is a board game database with price comparing in several European web shops.
Any feedback is welcome, I like good ideas! 😊6
It was my internship and I've end up working on a law company specializing on Australian construction laws they're working on a website that will take care of all the paperworks for the contractors. They have a dev team who's working on it but they don't have a web designer. I was accepted for the job as an intern/web designer/tester. I was so happy that I've got a really cool internship as a designer but that's only for a second.
The hell starts on day one. They've told me that they're using agile workflow and that they need to make the website responsive. It was based on bootstrap and gosh their code was so broken. HTML tags overlay on each other, some are unclosed. I've tried to fix the problems and did a great job at that. Made the front page responsive and all laid out. When I went to the next php file it has a different header.php and footer.php and same problems apply and we're not even touching the worst.
They didn't use any version management and they're cowboying everything. Now that the website is on the staging server they use Cpanel text editor to edit the code! My headache started to pileup.
The Australian client asked me to provide icons and fix the colors of the website. Also the typography looks great already. I've fixed almost all the problems and I'm satisfied with the design when suddenly a new co-worker from a famous and expensive college was absorbed by the company. He worked as the marketing specialist who has no experience at web design at all. He told me to do this and that and the whole website changed. He bullied me for my skills in design (I'm an intern) and just took over the whole design. Everyone even the boss listen to him as if everything he say is right. He's skilled at design but not web design. He made the website look like a freakin movie poster.
All my works are for nothing, I got headache for nothing and I've got hated for nothing.
It was the day when I finished my internship. It was a long 3 months. After a month I've heard from my co-interns that the whole dev team was fired including the marketing specialist. Also the whole website is scrapped and has been rebuilt by a single guy who used WordPress which he did in only a month.
Why the fuck are the setup instructions for the repo for Mac only?!! Oh, because everybody on the previous team used a Mac?!
Have you dick heads ever considered the possibility of new developers for the university module website not having a Mac??
And fuck your documentation too, half the fixes for setup problems mentioned inside the page doesn’t work. CS freshmen can write better documentation than you guys.
PS: that website and db is still not set up and setups should never take more than a day2
A popular social media website in my country (which my friends and I were working on it's new design) was hacked and everyone on the dev side of the website was invited to the ministry of communications, believing we were going to discuss security of user data. The other guys (working on the back-end) were friends with the CEO (if you want to call it that) and naturally came to the meeting. They started to talk about the girls of their city. Meanwhile about 1.2 million user data encrypted with MD5 was out there.6
Gotta crank put a website for our new store in 2 days, with a webstore and figure out how to get pokemon into the actual shop. And the hosting gives me 50MB. Yes. In 2016.2
Tried buying the .com version of my website that some punk in FL stole right from under my nose... Offered $3000 for it and now he's saying he wants 10k. Time to find a new domain and maybe business name 😭😭😭9
Earlier this day (or yesterday, timezones 'n stuff) I posted a "rant" about my new Project:
"The Spigot Web Framework" - a Tool that should help Owners of Minecraftservers without dedicated Webserver and knowledge about developing a website.
In the Screenshot below I show you guys, how few lines of code can make a beautiful website.
The Modulemanager is fully done and people can build their own Modules, which can be live updated.
I am currently working on "cross communication" between the Client and the Modules.
I hope you guys stay tuned!
EDIT: As mentioned in my last rant (look @comments) I will be able to pull off a standalone version of this software.19
Saturday/Me:."Sure buddy I'll make a website for your company"
Monday/Him: "talked with 10 venues today, told them we'd be live Friday. How's the project going?"
... my first Django project and I'm also looking for new jobs/in school3
I was given 8 hours to build an entire website from scratch. No storyboards. No content to start with. Just "I have a meeting with the CEO tomorrow. Make sure we have a new website to show him"4
Sacrificed my Diwali and made a website for my first client and did not get any payment.
I was new and less confident.
Well this is my freelance horror story.
Now I fucking demand money from client UPFRONT.1
For a large team project, I was working on the website. I implemented a log-in page that took me a bit of time since it was my first time.
He grade that process poorly saying he has seen log-in pages all the time and it was nothing new or exciting...
YOU ARE A PROFESSOR FOR AN INTRO CLASS! YOUR JOB IS TO LOOK AT THE EXACT SAME THING EVERY SEMESTER, SHITHEAD.
Changed my profile color. On the new website... yellow as a background is a bit too much like a light-themed IDE 😁7
A client asked me to do a little makeover to their old website (before I made them a new one) because if they ask to the company who made it, they would pay too much. The WWE problem was that the website was in that company server and had their (really) bad backoffice. I ended up injecting in one field on the contacts (not protected with XSS) a script that change a little the front page layout and some content in another pages.
So as applying for an internship to a new company, they wanted me to make an account and do some things to get use to the website... That's great, until I learned their website is fucking garbage!
Their design looks bad, icons are terrible, no common design flow, super busy. And they are taking about using machine learning and big data? Bitch you need to fucking make your site usable first!! If contacted them and will give them 30 days to fix their shit before I write about it
Hertz the car rental company wanted a new website. They hired accenture. Accenture did allegedly a poor job. The site did not come with responsiveness, not with web components and 2 years over deadline. Hertz sues Accenture for $38+ million.
Scope creep deluxe?10
Got a new website i should maintain... Code is a real mess... Why did some kids do something - it breaks my heart^^
The directory hasnt any seperate folder except the img-folder - css,html and js are inside the root dir...7
So you launched a new app/website. And you can't enjoj it because you expect it to break after each tap/click like it did during debugging. 😤6
My biggest dev regret is that I did not intervene when we decided to use WP for a huge website.
1 year after going live I had to add new features and translations; imagine the PITA-level!
Young me was too reluctant.2
That feeling when you're on Facebook or Social Media and you see companies promoting their new website thanking and congratulating the guy who designed and developed their website and you see it was made with with wix, or a free WordPress template.
HOLD MY REDBULL, YOU AINT NO FUCKING DESIGNER OR DEVELOPER —YOU DRAGGED AND DROPPED, LIKE YOU WERE AS A BABY. (😂)
I switched mobile carriers because the website for my carrier did not work properly. Now that I’ve switched I go to log in to the website for the new carrier and it doesn’t work either. What the fucking hell people, do you only support internet explorer or something? What the damn hell is going on?1
Friday evening. Just finishing new website for my company. (Had to build it with wordpress) Boss wants to bring it online right before weekend. Switch domain to production. Nothing works anymore. Fuck Wordpress. 👿9
The intense moment when there are thousands of people eager to use a new website you developed and there are still bugs and rough edges but the launch time is in 2hrs.
Needless to say I'm pretty nervous.
Soon I have a 2-day course on website creation. Yaaay, let’s learn WordPress this brand new technology !4
Too the future website developers, you guys are lucky to be developing website based on new edge (Chromium). You guys don't know what we have been through man.
Now this is true. Devrant changed me and now, after one of the devranters post I'm finally searching for a new job. Most of the time I was using PHP, but here I've seen lot of rants about laravel. Now I'm building a website with it and going to change my job. Thank you Devrant creators and community.3
Paranoia. Programming affected my life by making me paranoid. Creating a new account on any website that even needs rudimentary information about me has to go quite some vulnerability testing since I've seen enough hack jobs that throw around sensitive data because they're too incompetent to follow simple must dos.3
Just purchased a new house and was looking for a new ISP. Found a local ISP that is still offering dial up services and "Professional Website Design". Their website was obviously pre-web 2.0 all static nested tables and sliced images.4
The client said they don't want the old news to be imported to the new website.
After launch the client said that the news has not been imported over to the new website and they won't pay until everything is completed.
So am busy copying and pasting contents and images.
I want to fuck myself!3
Sent my cv through a local job finder website, 2 days later got an interview, 2 days later got a technical interview, 2 days later I was already sitting on my new desk
New client: we have all the source files for our website just need it to be responsive. We paid a lot for it back then, should be easy to for you to work on.
*Sure we'll take on the project
**Gets Flattened PSD file, HTML CSS JS Minified :/2
We need a new Website for our school TV club. Ok..
I start to make a idea of site and give it to the guy, who said that we need a new site.
He liked the idea.
I started to make site.
*Few hours later*
The site is "ready" (Not fancy af but operates)
I go to the guy who want the site.
He said: "Why do you make the site? I setuped Wordpress for our site."
I'm about to move to a new city and one of the websites I'm using adds its name, url and ©️2018 to anything you copy. It is driving me absolutely insane. Trying to find an adress on google? Well you didn't search for [streetname], you searched for [streetname, website name, url ©️2018]. Thank you for copyrighting that public street you fuck. Trying to e-mail an agent? Sorry I can't send an email to [e-mail adress, website name, url].
Whoever thought of this needs to be taken out back and shot.2
Received screen designs for a new website in Adobe Illustrator format with all the measurements in centimetres.3
I wonder what's wrong, lol. Since, I think, 2 Chrome updates, my Twitter bookmark (I even deleted it and created a completely new one) keeps changing its icon to the icon of whatever website gets visited in the same tab directly after an opened Twitter site.17
Days where some new website is going to production are the worst.
14 hours of pain are finally over. Insanity is close.
Finally sleep. Thank you for the overtime, not.1
Why can't you just fucking tell me what type of website you want. Every week you are fucking adding/removing new features and don't want to pay for it. You know what? Fuck you! From next week Monday I' am putting your website on hold until you agree to pay for the changes we made for the past 3 weeks.
On the same note, fuck you to my General Manager who thinks he will get laid for not charging for the changes made to the website. She is just using you dumb piece of shit.1
New job starts june 19!
Then Iceland the week after that 😍
One week to dev around and upgrade my website abit 😁3
So we're looking for a new developer, my boss sends me an email with a subject "Intresting CV". It was for a office clerk who altered a Wordpress website for the company they use to work for
Since my mom asks me for a new website every 6 months, and the fact that my dad and my girlfriend are developers as well..
They know exactly what I do!4
Thinking about creating a tech news account on devRant. A little idea that just came to my mind...
The account will contain all kinds of news! (about the tech industry of course)
So for example when a company acquires another company (IBM > RedHat, Microsoft > GitHub, etc.), a well-known website/app gets new features or a company releases a new smartphone, we will inform you here!
Of course I'd need some help if I wanted to do something like this. Especially from other timezones! (I'm im Austria/Europe)
Write a comment, if you're interested in helping out! The more people, the better!21
*right click on image*
*spams right click, thinking about getting a new mouse*
[small modal shows up: "this content is protected!"]
*laughs in developer's console*
I never thought I'd get to see a website that "protects" its content by disabling right click, I'm moved :')3
Yesterday night, pushed code that work normally to prod server, website down, internal server error, too many connection to MySQL server, tried to fix it for 4 hours, nothing to do, removed the new code, still the same problem, in my head, I told myself that I'm not good at programming (not the first time), send an email to the host, they tell me the problem is from them and they fixed it. And now I know I'm not bad enough.2
When a Client is supposed to send you sponsor icons for the new website and all you get is a single PDF file containing all of them. Why ??!! This is even more work to do for them ???!!!
Frankly my opinion of chrome users is so low that I think if Firefox were just re-released under a different name with a hip new website and they claimed it was the fastest (the way chrome falsely does) dumb asses from all over would probably flock to it5
To those of you who don't know about this, if you have a Microsoft account, you can sign up for Visual Studio Dev Essentials with it. Doing that gives you 3 months free access to Pluralsights, which is a really nice website to learn new stuff. Do check it out.3
Well everyone, my new website is finally live! Let me know what you all think! https://joshualuce.com13
Just the fact that you wrote your simple single page "contact us" website in React shows that you have no idea what you're doing, nor do you have any idea what the actual benefits of React are and in what situations it actually shines. You're just jumping on the React bandwagon for the sake of saying "I wrote it in React," and your decision to use React for that simple website is going to effectively increase It's development time without adding any additional benefits.
Each framework has its advantages and disadvantages. It's worth it to pay attention to these advantages/disadvantage, and choose the best framework to fit your needs. Don't just use a particular framework because it's the hot new craze. Use a framework because it's the right choice from a technical standpoint, and presents you with advantages that fit your application needs.1
Everytime I present to an older client (40+) his new website, he look at me like I am some kind of magician, when I show him, that he can easily add & replace any text or image. Surely I am.
Event Head: There is a theme available to save you some time.
*Sends over a Wordpress theme*
EH: I got us this new service where you can create a website just by drag and drop.
Sure, why not. How foolish of me to not know of WordPress and Website builder tools.1
I have no idea how this tab opened, maybe I clicked something, but it's really interesting to look through, really beautiful websites (though personally some of those ratings seem harsh), especially interesting to gather new ways and ideas, some get as creative as letting you walk through a virtual museum of some sorts, with some nice music playing in the background.
the main website:
Shit night. Sat at my fucking desk to work on my fucking tasks. Started at about 9:30. Now is 12:21 and I'm in my fucking bed.
Guess what I finished? 70% of the new template for fucking home page of one website.
I'm supposed to finish the new design for two websites and present at tomorrow morning meeting.
And I couldn't even finish one full page. My brain is just giving up on everything.
I just have to sleep and get up early. Hope my fucking body get up early.
What's the point of using Node.js for web development?
We got a new guy at the company who made a website in Node. His project is over 300Mb large and his code is fricking ugly. The website is a showcase for another company.
What the heck is wrong with him? I mean, dude, just use fucking PHP or simply just make a static website ffs. It would only be <200 Kb.
Don't use Node for this because it's trendy...12
Boss: Let's hire a new person to help us recreate our website
Us: sounds good!
Boss doesn't hire anyone and starts the website on his own
Boss: I started the new website. It's in server X and the address is test.y.com. I also want all of us to work on it
Me thinking: great he just wants us to modify the hosted files like he does 🙄
Me: I'll move a copy to GitHub for version control.
Boss creates a backup folder on the same computer and folder path that the hosted files are on.
Someone please nuke that server so my boss learns version control like I've asked before. I think I'll opt not to work on a website where he and my other co-workers will just overwrite each other's changes because he doesn't want to learn to git 😑4
I wanted a personal website when I was 15. My brother-in-law sat me down, showed me Dreamweaver and told me "Learn this stuff. It will be valuable when you're older." I dragged and dropped and then looked at the resulting code. Then came sites for friends. Finally, college. I still learn new stuff all the time with each project. I couldn't be happier!10
step 1) open and browse producthunt for new dev tools to use and try out
step 2) opens dev tool/app's website *ooh nice landing page*
step 3) tries to find api and documentation, scrolls to bottom of the webpage
step 4) "we are still in private beta, sign up to be notified about the final release!"
step 5) lol *sighs* bookmarks tab before closing it
step 6) repeat step 1
- get better at nodejs(and a bad ass front-end dev)
- rewrite the sass to bem for my club website
- put the website for my brother and sister online
- build a new 2018 portfolio website for myself
- finish my dashboard to run on a pi
- get a permanent position1
Time to change the copyright numbers on the bottom of my website, i guess i should have automated that a while back...
Happy new year anyway!6
The company that I work for has recently recruited a team for Web Development, so they don't have to pay a monthly fee to the previous team who designed their website.
They have over 3000+ products in the old website, and no logical way to import them to the new website. The old team was asking for 300$ to give them an API which would return the product details in an XML format.
Obviously, paying that amount of money wasn't logical for a dying website, so the manager decided to hire someone to manually copy the content from the old admin panel to the new one, that is until I stopped him.
My solution? Write a simple web scraper to login to the old panel and collect data. Boom! 300$ saved from going to waste.
Now, the old team found about this and as much as my manager was happy, they were quite angry. So they implanted a Google reCaptcha to prevent my bot from scraping the old panel.
I spent about 20 minutes, and found out once you're logged in to the old panel, the session is saved in a cookie and you are no longer greeted by a Captcha.
So I re-written a small portion of my bot, and Boom! Instant karma from manager. We finished publishing the new site, and notified the old team, only to see the precious look on their face. Poor guy, he thought I was a wizard or something 😂😂
That's what you get for overcharging people!
TL;DR: Company's old website team wanted to overcharge us writing an API to fetch 3000+ records.
Written a basic web scraper to do the same job in less than an hour.3
I hate Twitter so much right now! I was trying to embed a timeline into my new website and it kept only showing me a link. I thought that my server config was messed up and re did everything from scratch. It turn out that when you use the Twitter embed tool, it doesn't add "https:" in front of the link to the js file. There is a week of work wasted because of a broken link.1
An old client came back to me stating that I didn't fix the last change he requested a month ago. I went in old emails, found out what he needed, tried the website, it was doing exactly what he wanted.
I wrote to him with confusion asking what was he wanted me to fix.
"It's not working"
"No, it's not. Can't you see?"
I attached old email conversations and sent him to see for himself.
"I am not talking about that." I want it to work like this, like that, blah blah blah.
Fucking asshole. Tell me you wanted new feature in the website.
Week 1 : Be told website needs to be responsive for all main mobile devices. Code and complete.
Week 2 : Go back to previous work
Week 3 : Oh the MD is doing a demo this week (which was arranged in week 1) of the responsive site, can you change almost everything and add all this new functionality before Tuesday....
So, i helped solving 168 bugs for this website. Ofcourse, doubting every step since i'm still new here. Yesterday there was a meeting with the directors. Appearently they where happy a graded the site with a 8.5.
I finished my education with a 6. Not taking credit for any of the above...4
Oh come on... they said the new website will be launched on 18 december because the old one will go down. So I was checking the result...
WordPress comes with alot of junks. I want to make a CMS similar to WordPress but for developers which has builtin functions to make websites easily and extend the functionalities easily. Where there is no fear when updating their website to the new version.4
I remember when I was new to programming I would bookmark almost every website where I got a working solution...2
I haven't checked devRant for so long now. So, update.
I started learning PHP, in spite of everyone saying it's shit. I actually like it. I finally published my first website (www.stevit.rs) and few apps along side that. Oh, and two apps and a website are in the construction as I'm writing this. And on the main website, I'm creating a new section - Testimonials. It was more interesting than I thought to collect those.
Now, you might be thinking "But Steva, this isn't ranting :O"
Hell, yeah, it is. Because I also have school and shitty study plan in Informatics. I also have a bunch if bad grades that I need to fix. I have deadlines everywhere, I don't know how am I supposed to finish everything on time.
Wish me luck.. :(4
I get why it doesn't work in IE but Edge... like what? Edge is supposed to be a modern browser... No?8
So I had this client who wanted me to develop a brand new website for his company. When I asked him about the money he'd pay me, he said he'll pay me whatever it takes.
After 3 months of grinding, I asked him for my payment. That fucker stopped returning my calls and emails. He didn't even use my website. Then a month later I found that that fucker had called in a cheaper web developer and got his website designed JUST LIKE MINE!!!
I fucking hate freelancing!!3
Released a new version of my website. What do you think about it, guys? :)
Is it me or freelancing jobs at Freelancer are incredibly vague.
Jobs titled "build me a website" with descriptions like "I need an expert dev to work on a python website".
How the hell can you put a price and time to it?!
Am I missing something here? I'm totally new at this and it's kinda baffling.4
Client calls me requesting a new simple feature.
Connect to FTP server.
Edit some PHP pages and upload them back, check if the changes actually worked.
Basically implementing and testing a new feature on a live production website...
PS. It didn't work the first or second time
Disappointed to be an intern at a place where we were given a website project where I'm the only experienced coder. Not learning anything new and I work all day while my team watches videos.4
Cheapskate's website deployment stack for new projects:
namecheap ($10 domain) + heroku (free hosting) + mailgun (free email) + Cloudflare (free SSL) = $10/year3
After the CTO's Skype call with the top bosses... I embrace my self for new app feature the bosses saw on the some website..during there coffee break.
Check out my new website!
Redirection is temporary. plz wait 5sec
any suggestions welcome!
Please test download lunks and see if it works or not2
Why is crapple.com not taken yet?! It would be an amazing place to hate on Apple. Unfortunately, I don't have time to buy and set this up anybody want to help?6
I was working with my embedded systems friend a few days ago on a website, and since we work with electronics, it was something new.
I then went home and started learning web development.
Holy shit I love it
That very "awesomeee" moment when you have to create a website to a new startup which are using all the right buzzwords such as blockchain, AI and machine learning... (wuhuuu)
Btw. will you help a fellow dude by answering my survey for my final paper?
- and it took a whole year for me (and some desperation for help) to write my first ever post on here :p4
"Web design has a bad reputation for being stylistically trendy and same-looking. Some guy does a parallax scrolling site, and now your boss wants you to add that to your corporate PR website for some reason. Glossy buttons, Gaussian Noise, linen texture, new things that look fake-old, then back to minimalism and flat colors as a reaction to the glossy noisy textured fake-old stuff." - Jonas Downey1
Our company just launched a new website where you can get a demo of the backend. So you go to the demo area and you login automatically with a demo account. The thing is, you can do almost everything a normal user can do. Like, changing the password of the demo account. We'll see what happens :)2
Worked on website that has Twitter Bootstrap, including the fancy grid classes. Colleague adds new class with the brilliant name 'paddington-bear'. Class only had padding: 0 13px;.
Really had a good laugh about it. Other colleague went furious on Paddington colleague couldn't appreciate it at all. Had myself another good laugh while the colleagues were bickering.3
Got a small job redesigning a website and adding some simple functionality.
Turns out, the old sod who built the old site is too proud of his work to let anyone tamper with it, even knowing it is never used.
Long story short, I am making a complete new site and the customer lost their domain name.
So Im business partners with my ex's father for a gun store and have been working on a new system to sell to the market for the gun industry.
Since I understand how to program it is assumed I automatically know how people think when buying things online, and one of my responsibilities is listing our guns from estate sales on a website called Gunbroker.com...
It is the worst and slowest website I've ever had to use and they assume everyone uses IE...And that's what I hate most about it. They didn't get the memo that IE is for downloading better browsers. Unless you're on a Mac/Linux which I am..3
A company I work with are reluctant to change their hosting provider until the end of their hosting term. (Which may be a perfect reason as it's paid for)
The website goes down everyday!!!! Not to forget it's a popular magazine website!
Here are the new relic emails at 1 minute intervals:
- HTTP 500 Response Code
- HTTP 508 Response Code
- NetworkError: Read timed out
- Connect to domain:80 failed: connection timed out
We released a website for a client 10 days ago. The site was up and running and everything seemed fine.
But it turns out that the site used 15GB of bandwidth in 5 days ( WTF???).
So now I need to go and examine my code to make sure I didn't forget something and implement a new caching methods to try and reduce the amount of bandwidth being used.
But I still don't understand how a small "newspaper" website with a max upload size of 5MB could of used so much in so little time.
I also added a screenshot showing the number of visits from an addthis dashboard5
Best client I have ever experienced. Kappa
So, I got job to recreate one old website, because the old one was incredibly fucked up. She told us, it was made by someone retarded.
The code was fucked up even more than UI. It was definitely written by some kind of idiot. Diacritics, mixed languages, no OOP, no FW, just copy&paste. Yeah copy and paste for every page.
The DB was another level of shit. Inifine is not enough to describe it. Column names with whitespace, diacritics, uppercase, lowercase...pure hell. Yeah and I had to import it.
Whenthe new website was ready for testing I got an email from her that it was her who made the website... HER!! Fucking hell, no more of this please!1
Had a deal with a client that i’ll make a website for him in a month because I have other jobs that i need to finish first. I called him 2 days ago i said that i’ll upload the website for confirmation of the design in a few days, he says ok. I get around to it, developed the frontend on localhost, put it on my server for him to approve and sent him the link. He said something about a specific photo not being grayscale or whatever - I don’t even have any info for the site that he sent, got confused, ok.. I go to his old website to get some information onto the new one, surprise surprise a new website that I don’t have anything to do with appeared. Wtf, check the ftp - was uploaded 5 days ago. Fml just wasted a day and got no sleep. 99.9% that i wont get paid. Bamboozled. Cant sleep, wtf4
Well, I just finished up moving a website from 2009 to a new server. The website is so old that it still used PHP short tags which took forever to fix, as it's a big website, and then I had to update all kinds of weird SQL queries. Of course, no documentation was available and the guy who made it doesn't work for my company anymore.
You want to know what's even worse? The website was made in 2009 with pure PHP code. After that they switched to Yii with phpBB for their forum. Two years ago they switched to WordPress, but still use some parts of the old system for management. Just imagine the clusterfuck of files and logic that exists within this website.
Our new intern gave our digitalocean login details to this so called web developer to upload a new website.
The webdev removed the droplet 😭3
So that new keyboard I bought? They sent me a French azerty instead of a Belgian azerty layout. Meaning the special keys are in the wrong places.
It's from a third party vendor. Here was me thinking I was getting a good deal on a second hand product in a box that had been opened but returned. Think I can guess why that happened.
I contacted support who will contact the third party but I have a bad feeling about this already. Both the third party and website where I ordered this are Dutch and they are used to Qwerty. Guess I should have bought on a Belgian website at full price :(5
So, if you were supposed to work on a website that is already pretty shitty coded, shitty styled and outdated... Would you go on coding like shit for the sake of consistency or would you embed a new mini-system in it trying to pay some fucking respect to everything you have learned?
Edit: in this scenario, you can actually make a choice haha7
My Last few days:
Working on a new project I started few days ago. Decided to push to GitHub.
Working on setup python script a this project requires a little work to get up and running
Working on markdown files and docs.
Moves to working on the GitHub page.
Now I am working on a website for a project that isn even 10% done.1
> Developer in a company that builds Enterprise Applications with web client and stuff.
> Had an really nice website a which colleague made with joomla as base.
> New CMO thinks it would be cool if he could change more details.
> Company now uses some cheap ugly website builder.
WTF is wrong with u O.o
@dfox How do you feel about an update to the profile page? I want to link to my personal website, perhaps some regex black magic to override the github link if it matches a URL?
Or just a new input?7
Its 5:32 am been working on a new social media website opened up devrant to check whatsup and found out people really have amazing pc setups ♥️ I couldn’t post mine because my laptop has a broken keyboard and i use a usb keyboard also my laptop overheats so i stuck skateboard wheels to two of the back supports its an i5 processor with 3gb of ram but I love it,its what you do with your resources that really matters right ? with that broken keyboard i created a website for my college department which now 720 students and teachers use and we have around 8k entries in 3 days. Running the website on a local server at my college so no money spent on hosting. Taking small steps towards my goals and hopefully one day i’ll publish my setup2
After many months of hard work we are finally near to release the new website. It feels amazing and is such a relief. Some days it seemed like everything was against me but it's in times like these I am so glad to be a developer.2
What static site generator do you prefer, and why?
I want to set up a website for a small business and do not want to spend a lot of time on it but it also should be blazing fast.
My familiarity with react leads me to Gatsby, but there are probably good alternatives.
It should also be easy for the (non-tech) admin then to create posts on a news page or even new pages (probably with Markdown).
Thank you in advance!4
Just checked my college's website and every thesis has to use times new roman. But thats a proprietary font?? I mean they do provide student licenses for windows but why the fuck is using a proprietary font a requirement?12
marquetting department: i need a new for on the website its urgent drop everithing else
dev: sure can you give me the text and the fields that should be on the form?
....1 week later
dev: do you havr the info
marketing: can you have ot online today
dev: yes just get me that content
.... you know where im going with this
New person joins client's team to handle one product on the website and asks me to restructure the whole site. Sorry, pal, but unless you have money to add to the project's already spoken-for pot of resources for features, you're gonna have to wait til next year.
Just purchased a new domain and decided to once again design my website personally (Fuck wordpress man) but...
I absolutely hate working with HTML and JS at the same time (I actually love JS on its own), its like bloody Stockholm syndrome!
HTML may beat me senseless.. But i love it too much to stop!1
I have a brand new personal website nearly done to launch and a Django learning project I want to do, but I first need to finish this Grav-powered website I promised half a year ago, but the semesters and computer problems keep delaying that... 😢 #NoTimeForCode
Just had a meeting with a client. Client is a local company but they hired a new guy and he is a foreigner. They made a website with us. Since it is a typical corporate website with few pages and just text and images as content, we used WordPress.
The new guy is familiar with squarespace and asked me my opinion on using SS. I don't really find any issue and it was my reply. He seemed surprised and asked me "Wouldn't it be like losing your business?"
I have never considered developing WordPress as my business. Programming is my interest and profession. But my main passion is to provide solutions to anyone in need. In fact, there were many occasions where I told to clients they shouldn't buy our services and recommend other services including competitors.
He probably thinks I'm a strange guy.
My dad was using notepad to edit some HTML for his website. I downloaded Visual Studio Code and he likes it SO MUCH MORE. (I wonder why....).
Kinda happy I could help him with it. He is pretty good at coding but just hasn't done it in a while (not his trade) so he doesn't know all the new tools and such.4
I'm currently in the process of developing a new service with which websites can be advertised for free.
The idea is you get to advertise your website for free on the network and in return you add advertisements from other websites on the network to your site.
More detailed information can be found at https://handelads.com
How many of you as developers would be interested in such a service?
I would appreciate any feedback you all might have.11
A senior guy who knows how to design “says he have a creative agency as a side business” came up with a new website design with the approval from executive and asked us to develop it!
With no discussing with the developers, or the designer in our team! And his design is a full one page website filled with full page modals whenever you click something!!
And my dear manager of course approved it.
I am not against the design or anything, but I am against that we aren’t involve in something like this. The design is doable, but the page load will be heavy because it contain a lot of pictures, and SEO will be bullshit. Developers should give their technical opinion in the design but they don’t understand!2
Lets make sure that we are always using the latest software! Keep things up to date#
..... (new version of bulma.io comes out)
..... (Updating libraries...)
Why is the website all fucked up looking?
Shit they changed the padding level on like everything?!
..... Reverting back to older version, fuck that idea.2
Nothing really successful, but someone once wrote an article about my old buggy version of JS select plugin...on website noone visits :( Anyway, I think, the new version is pretty good and fast and would be happy to see it somewhere, especially search is fast af.
I have one more project which could have been successful. Never finished, never ended and never used...no time for it...
Well, I've got mostly devRant to thank for this new friend.
On this website he's called RAZERZ and he's a pretty cool dude. He has far more experience than me in programming, due to him actually being able to work (I love in the US on a Student Visa, so I can't work or I might get deported), but he is pretty chill anyways.
THANK YOU DEVRANT FOR EXISTING6
I remember back then when we were building an E-commerce website. To maintain good performance the boss insisted using flat table. This was also applied to other projects like GPS. That was already 2013 when NoSQL databases like MongoDB was around already. His concern is he didn't like to risk on new technologies and it would cost money for training instead of using the existing "MySQL" and Microsoft SQL Server.
Everything I learned from that guy was just poop.
I want to start a new website that I can use as a hub for all my side projects.
Will double as a portfolio site but mostly it will just let me share my ideas with friends.3
My company is getting a new website. This involves getting new hosting.
I made the old one, and it's all just static html. I'm not that attached to it but it's an important detail.
The bosses want the switch to the new site to happen instantly, but I pointed out that with DNS propagation times etc it can't really happen that way.
So I suggested the new web guys host our old site for a few days and we change the DNS now. Then when they want to launch we don't have to wait for the DNS and they can just swap it out.
This involves dropping 10MB of html files into the web directory on the new server.
For this service they are charging us for 2 hours of their time!
I guess I'm in the wrong business...
In the new job as "Consultant", one of my duties is to maintain the website. Now, the website is based on PHP 5.6 (which they are still using mail method) and without git or sg-git and of course, it is based on cPanel.
Now, I update the website in real time i.e. working on cPanel itself. This is because I don't do for the front end, I do it for SEO. So one day, they reported a "feature" as a bug and assigned it to solve me, I took my time solved it, they did not like it, I reverted it back and I had to listen to a lecture because I did not test it.
Imagine old "wise" ass hats giving a lecture which they do not know about in the first place, 12 of them precisely, yeah that's what happened to me.
A webcrawler that uses deep learning to find realy bad small and medium business websites. So that you could sell them a new shiny website.4
// First rant
So I've spent the last three days trying to send requests to a website in C# (never had done that, so I had to learn from scratch) and using XPath to select certain nodes from the html.
Today, I port it to a new UWP project and turns out it doesn't support XPath. I guess I should learn LINQ now...fml2
I just hate trends...
A few years ago, if a website would show customized content (like news, posts) we would say that the job is done by a robot, scripts, filters...
Now days is AI this, AI that... Buy this bike, it as collision sensors so it's AI powered... New washing machine with inteligent AI.. You don't have to set half or full load because the AI will do that for you...1
got a new macbookpro with my new job. awesome. but no usb port so i need a dongle to use my good mouse.
my solution: pickup the dongle myself from down the street and expense it
company solution: order it through complicated website, wait for 3 people to approve it, and wait 4+ weeks for it to come in (still waiting)
our school says...
This school homepage was developed in 2008 as a builder.
IE7 was the main browser at the time of 2008, but now IE11 is being used as the main browser.
We are currently working on developing a school website builder that is suitable for modern browsers and sequentially converting all schools into new builders by December 2017.
Therefore, please use the Chrome browser to use and operate stable website when accessing the school website.
But WHY ISN'T IT WORKING IN CHROME, EITHER???!!!!1
happy new year! what do yall have planned for this year? I'm thinking about writing me up a miniature jarvis to automate my Web Development business, nothing really special just automated invoices, website installs, calendar, contract signing, etc. where all I have to do is type up a requirement list and code2
As a web dev.. am i the only one who has a folder called templates or some kind, where i have started but unfinished projects of my own? Because of the fact that i always came up with an ideea of a new website ?2
So, I just recieved a welcome email from bit.ac, with my email and a random generated password. The fact is that, I have never registered on this website. Did someone just registered with my email? Or maybe it's a new marketing strategy, to collect emails from another databases and send them emails, "reminding" them their email and a random generated password, so that who recieve the email, to be confused and to access the website to see what is all about,resulting that the company gets more traffic & eventually new possible customers?7
I never worked directly developing. All my experience is by myself: I try things, they can work or not. So when I am writing a new site/app, I always have millions of doubts of how should I proceed with X or Y.
EXAMPLE: I am dealing of data from a mySQL in a PHP website right now, so I never know how should I treat it. Should I use a function to get data from database and return an array with all fields? Is there a better way?
So my question is: where can I learn that kind of thing? Is there any specific book you recommend? Is there a website? Another way to learn this?
It is easy to me to learn about commands and the programming language itself. There are plenty of books and websites, but I could never find an answer to these questions I have.
Thank you so much in advance!15
I want to change my domain name by moving the actual website files to a new domain. It has 4 articles and has about 700 page views per day. Will search engines blacklist the new site for 'copied' content?2
When the graphic designer adds new areas (divs, icons, sliders) to your website mockup without consulting you.. You ask why he added them.. His response... Just drag and drop the new stuff in.. I think he think I make websites in Microsoft Word.1
Finally managed to get my website up and running after a week of going back and forth with Hostgator. I'm really excited about it even though I know it's not quite ready and needs more work.
Even so, please have a look and tell me what you think :)
PM asked me to work on new designs of website and said could not give me more than 3 days. On top of the he gave me bunch of issues to fix and did not consider fixing of those issues progress.
I have working on a new website for a client that interfaces with their internal systems, meaning we must collect the data fields required by the client. A look over the designs reveals such huge inconsistencies in the data input that we may as well not have bothered designing it.1
- First logon on the support website
- Input pregenerated password
- Password expired
- Input new password
- Password invalid
- Try different passwords
- I realize that the suggested length of the password (8 char) is also the max length
- Input eight character password
- Password invalid
- Input the pregenerated password
- Password changed1
For everyone who has that friend looking to build the next Facebook... Send them this http://fossbytes.com/how-to-build-y... . I would make sure to let them know you wish them the best on their new endeavors2
An API for an API..
Hear me out. :-)
You know how some websites have an API, and some folk write applications that use that API.
A thought occurred to me, instead of writing a new application for each website, why not keep the same application, but have an API for it.
Then each time you have a new website to support, you only need to develop the in-between module that translates one API to another API, you could call it the Translation Matrix Layer perhaps..
Thoughts, suggestions, ideas welcomed.15
3 out of 4 projects on hold because hosting companies nowadays can't do shit.
Changing a website on another hosting to a new one. Another hosting failing us, some big clients already waiting for the release.
I hate clients with shared hosting2
Once I worked on a custom CMS for a client who was really into breaking stuff... actualy he broke a lot of shit by doing some stuff on he's website while it was live!!!
Once after a hard days of work I had to publish the new version of the site...... first I checked that it is still working on the live server so I could take a backup.... gues what the website was totally fucked up......
I was really angry at that moment and this incident wasn't the first one so I created a user with bunch of swear words as name, surname, email etc etc... and I forgot about it..... so 2 to 3 weeks later the client noticed that user.... and wrote a angry letter to my boss....
Didn't get fired tho :D
Would someone like to review my new website for web development and tech work?
add services via back end(hard-coded in right now)
make it easy to apply discounts
A rating system
add chat to website
add site specs
add a more detailed about page6
I don't know what the fuck is happening rn I created repo on gitlab and tried to make changes from terminal it refused. Tried every fucking combination as I thought I must be doing something wrong .
Got fed up made a new account , made a new repo but gitlab doesn't allow me to upload files from there fucking website too.
Now I am getting error 500 from terminal because I can't clone my repo as it says this repo doesn't exist.
Now I can only imagine that there might be some problem with gitlab it's 4 in the morning, I should probably sleep.
That moment when you are 50% ahead in the sprint and then the designer comes and says:
"I updated the design a bit"..
boom! an entire new website...
Ok maybe not that bad, but .... sometimes..... *sight* .... web designers :/ ...
I've been given the task to write a website for our school, where teachers would post plans, images, polls... I decided to use this new technology called service worker. Been struggling a lot with just, but hey it looks like an app and works offline.
It's really something anyone can add to any website in a week, but the advantages are quite a lot2
What's a good website to get tech news and help me stay up to date? I'm interning for a company and most times I get lost when they start discussing new tech I've never even heard about.9
I have a question, let's say I have a website and app both using oAuth facebook login. Should I save the access token provided by facebook in my database and if I should, what will happen to the access token when user logins with facebook on website and then login again with the app? is that mean access token is going to be overwritten by new login? and do you have any other suggestions for 0auth integration?4
I was working on a dashboard website, and when I was deciding what to use (plain JS, Angular...) I've decided to make my own, lightweight routing framework.
It's on GitHub (https://github.com/Kamebase/Kame)
What do you think about it?6
A: our WordPress website that use heavily Facebook APIs is not working anymore because of the privacy changes
B (thinking): seems something easy, check the settings and do an invoice of the job for a portal that we didn't done and get a new customer
B: we can do it in blablabla for blablabla
Silence from the A side
1 month later...
A: I didn't found your bank account for the payment but we are ready to do that fix. And we have also a new feature request.
Told client in review meeting with missing PM (vacation) that the live release of their new website for the end of may is very optimistic and we probably should target a later date due to more change and feature requests.
1.5 weeks pass and the clients sends updated requests and also their new launch date: 18th if May.
Yeah sure also write your emails to the PM that is on vacation - like you’ve been informed of several times.
When deadlines get even shorter, I really envy not-agency people.2
Me: I need a new website. Let's make it with NodeJS / AdonisJS so I get a grip on that tech.
Also me: mmh, how about I use it as an API so that I can plug some other things in it?
Also me: successfully develop a headless CMS based on an API, with AdonisJS. Not perfect, but runs like a charm.
I'm writing a website for a café and I'd like to use a new tool for generating content and managing it. Only real requirement is a SCSS pre-processor and maybe built-in Auth.
Devrant got my hopes up when I got on and saw the fancy new website.
Of course, the webapp is the same old interface :(
new site looks great though!!3
Working on a new website for Web Designing and Web Development etc
It's great to work with the team.2
When a website works fine in IE10 but not in safari.
Safari, you really are the new ie
(just some minor quirks I had to fix but still 😁)
I hate it when customers send you a png of their new website and I have to improvise the responsiveness and every control state and page layout....4
I don't know if it's intended or not.
The crazy amount of console.log in devRant's new desktop website got my attention.1
So the company I work for assigned me to a new clients project and has already proven to be a pain.
I checked all my emails late Sunday evening and replied to them (saves me the time in the morning) so I emailed this new client who was enquiring when a part of his website was to be done.
Me: I fully expect this portion of the functionally to be done by the tail of the week.
Client first thing this morning: why isn’t anything working you said it would be done.
watched android tutorial on how to use Parse for logins and storing data......went to parse website to download starter project......found out parse is retiring and no longer spport new users :(7
So once again, I'm planning for a new website I'm developing, a little side project. I tend to put pen to paper and map out what features I want to include and see where that goes.
It's got me thinking how everyone else likes to plan for their personal projects and if I'm missing a trick?2
Back in the day I was a website administrator. At one point it involved cropping images in Photoshop for 6 months then doing data entry to new website. Man that sucked.
Encouraged me to learn to program then became a web developer at the same company.
I got the short straw and get the privilege of building our new website.
I really don't know PHP very well, but apparently everyone else says they know it less.
Yea! Holiday weekend. NOT!!!! :(5
Currently hesitating between :
- Writing a program to edit and process a lot of raw images at once (and learning how to do it)
- Finishing building my new website.
- Doing a port of a dumb flash game to android and put ads in it to get some money. (Unity)
- Learning a bunch of stuff to create my dream game + documentation by playing games.

post = " hey guys, I wanna make a photography portfolio website for my brother.
I want to change my habitual stack and go in uncharted seas.
My habitual stack : Nodejs, angularjs/Angular, bootstrap/foundation.
This portfolio should be SEO ready and lightweight.
Thank you if you have some ideas so I can enjoy learn a new stack 😃"
Today i started to work on a new website for one of my friends wich is a photographer, i am quite a beginner and i would like to know what you will you guys recommed as library or language .. i am trying to make a image gallery but i want to make it a bit fancy 🤔7
One thing I realized about my workplace: when you're given a new template to be used for an existing website project, do NOT use the included CSS files. Seems like it would be better to just manually change the looks of the website to make it similar to that template, lest you want some alignment stuff to break.
Plus, it seems that I don't even need to meet all the design requirements, because whenever I try to do that, clients tend to forget the design they originally gave and request for all these changes.
One more month... One more month and I'm off to bootcamp to properly learn.1
Question: which is better approach?
1. Use push notifications to tell react website that new data is available
2. Use SignalR (similar to socket.io) and push data in real time?
The down side of SignalR is server needs to map connections --> use more memory while push notifications doesn't require that13
Best experience? My homie @lordbarnhill and I stumbled onto the solution for installing OpenSocial #Drupal8 properly on Pantheon hosting.
Worst experience? Creating a website for a radiology group only to get fired with 3 days left until launch. The "new" developer turned out to be their IT guy in house took 2 months to launch. The experience up to the point of getting fired was excruciatingly detailed and filled with ope creep.
Just sent a series of design visuals for the client to look at for his new website, expecting some feedback. A few hours later he sends an email saying, "my main competitor" with a web link and nothing else. What the fuck am i supposed to do with that? Id already studied all his competitors prior to commencing the design visuals, how am i supposed to respond without being condescending?3
I've been replaced twice by wix and squarespace. This is pretty soul-crushing. Both were free lance jobs. Where the user got impatient and insisted that I make constant changes on the fly. I'm relatively new and still in school.
Has anyone else been replaced by a website generator? How do you rebound/recover?8
building a new poetry website with React! There is rhythm in code. Fuck you if you think otherwise3
don't know why but I've been working with these servlets in jsps and everything is like spinning ..just wanting host a website of my own..gosh back-end is totally uncool...
PS:I dont like to say the print("Hello World").. although I'm new3
Does devRant have a feed extracting API? I want to add new rants to my personal website. It would be really cool to.4
Back in the early noughties I had an interview for the new job. A couple days before the interview I've visited that company's website. There was search input. Of cause I've entered some hacky things into it. And after several attempts I hacked it. The site was down in an infinite loop.
Two days later I told interviewer about the bug and what I did to reproduce it. He was surprised and checked the website. It was still down the same way.
I was totally ashamed. I was supposed to report that problem somehow.
BTW I got the job:)
I want to create a website and the frontend stuff is already done by another guy. It is similar to social media in that it needs an upvote-system and accept uploads. There also needs to be a payment system. I have very little experience in web development, but I have a lot of fun learning new things.
My question: Would you recomend a CMS(which one) or
learning by doing?7
Could anybody suggest me a java based website framework where I could build dashboard, charts ,uploading features etc...I know I could google this but I am able to find lot of results and since I am new to this I am struck which framework to choose ??
Your feedbacks would be very helpful to me11
Professor gave us a whole website to be built on a language new for the whole group (Ruby on Rails) to be demoed and built within 5 days the same week of our finals...3
I came across a website today when I was searching for some banking related stuff on Google and this is what happened...
Types search term in Google
Gets the results
Opens a result in a new tab
Finishes reading it and clicks back
Tab refreshes to go the website's home page (What!?)
Clicks back again
Refreshes to the same result page (seriously?)
Google home page (wtf?)
Website home page (again?)
Result page (NO! I'M DONE)
Closes the tab
What sort of wicked loop did I get myself into? Did the website devs ever think how frustrated it will be if they ever open their own page?
And what a clever technique to open Google home page for people who keep on pressing the back button! 👏👏 /s1
Heys guys, so I made this little Chrome extension that shows you news feed from blogs and websites (of your choice) in your new tab page. Ya know, so you don't have to go to any specific website or app or anything. So, give it a spin maybe?
Its called Blink: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...
PS: Sorry if you think this is spam, just wanted to share it.. Its free and open source..2
Team of 2 developers expected to build a new company website with a dashboard to manage it without having to know development, an internal social media management dashboard, and a phone number provisioning/call reporting dashboard for both clients and internal. All while managing the normal day to day workflow of working for a digital marketing agency. Expected in 7 weeks.1
Missed that it's already Friday and a customer's website will launch in the afternoon. Have to write an entire fucking form-doi-mail-plugin for WordPress within four hours. It's possible, yes. But I like doing things "right" and add comments. 😩
At least I moved the whole site already to the production Environment, new Hoster and stuff.2
Why asking your dev team for any suggestions or solutions when you can easily say „make new website! Fast!“... now we have a new Website providing the exact same features as the so desired App... no further words for this.1
Spent all afternoon trying to make CI work for my own personal website, trying out a new concept, that I call Frontend only, it restores, builds, but fails to deploy with connection dropped after a few seconds... For all of the Gods and Saints of deployment please grant me stable connections, thanks
PS: you guys at cPanel Fuck You, thanks
I've been freelancing lately with an agency to develop an android app for their client and at the same time another person is developing the website .
The story begins when I first contacted the web dev to give me access to the database (because he started before me ).It turns out that this guy purchased an almost ready cms template with a shitty data structure that has no relations between object .This database has no primary keys , no foreign keys , no indexes ... no nothing . Adding to that the web dev refused that I rewrite a new data structure claiming that he has done a good progress on the website .
Forward couple of weeks , I managed to create the api and develop an alpha for the app and sent it to the agency manager .
This bastard told me that the website and design have changed and the app shouldn't be like that .He told me to contact the other bastard the web dev to seen what the changes are . I'm waiting for the response about the new updates and I'm praying that they'll be just minor colors updates or something not a whole concept update .
My problem here is I'm stuck with this fucking agency cuz they paid half of the payment when I started .
Damn I must learn to say no to people .2
Company website created by a third party developers ( paid ) and after a year the new company team does not like the design and asks the inhouse developer hired to create internal apps ( develop office workflow related apps) to change the design of the website and not be paid for it (add new work to the list of works and not be paid extra).
And that they don't want to pay someone to do it again and when the dev ask them what they want in the website , it seems like they are focused on updating content ( which they have access with the wordpress admin panel they have been given ) and a bit of design changes which a dev would do within a few hours and they will have to pay v little for it.
Why does ppl think that devs have all the time in the world to do free stuff !!! and most of the times we are doing more that everyone else in the workplace combined and when we don't do something its like you are not corporating with us, u don't work much and u have too much free time.
I finally finished a website of a client where I‘m working on since 2012!!! WTF! I never hat such a client before. Sometimes I haven‘t heard anything from them 4 months then they called me, I changed some pictures a did a little bit of styling and then it took months again to get a feedback! To be honest, now 5 years later they need a redesign of their „new“ website.1
I've deployed a website with jokes, a personal project, in two languages, Greek and English, using Django.
It doesn't have many jokes yet, but I was just wondering if you guys could take a look and give me your opinion. I'm very new to web development and it would be really helpfull...6
Just completed half of the website for a client with number of meetings and after last meeting he says I'm bored with this design now change it and make something new with new components and new Colors. I haven't replied yet, best comment will be my reply xD5
Hi guys. I wanna start a new personal project for web development. Actually i code in Rails for work and i want to try something different, Easy to learn but able ti manage any type of website and web-app. Any suggestion?6
So I have a website as a personal project that has a decent amount of visitors each day. The codebase, however, is really ugly because it's something I made very fast in my spare time three years ago.
Over the past six months, I have been working on a completely new version of the website with a better layout and much nicer backend code.
At the moment I'm pretty sure the new website is ready to deploy. I even asked some friends who tested the website very thoroughly and came up with some minor bugs.
But now I'm really stressed to deploy the new website and I keep postponing it. What if I forgot a stupid error? What if some mobile part doesn't work? What if the new website isn't as SEO friendly as the current and I lose my visitors? 😱2
I start website with Databases, it work well but I want to upgrade with new feature.
Some features could be better in an other site.
So I build another website with many features and think about new widget and concept.
I start another one again and again and again...
Does I am the only one to do that?
I'm beginning to design websites using WordPress. The issue is, every client wants their website to be styled differently. ive looked into creating my own themes, but a new theme for each client is just unrealistic.
Somebody pointed me towards dopewp.com, which is a Bootstrap based theme with a page builder. I've settled for the idea that I need one theme that'll do the job everywhere, but there's more questions past that.
should I develop my own Bootstrap theme, or use freemium software (which I hate) like dopewp? another option would be to build my own Bootstrap theme, or a completely new Bootstrap CMS.
I just don't know...6
Why the hell is someone still using php4? For real, is there any reason to make a new website with that 2008 built php?
Daughters fancy new insulin pump:
Rant 1 - works with Safari and IE, no Chrome support - that takes some skills
Rant 2 - Wife's laptop is Windows 10 - sync website identifies the operating system as "Windows NT" (unless a typo and they meant Windows TeN)
Rant 3 - syncing data - "next" button wants you to re-set up the device (from scratch) - "finish" button (on the same screen) actually syncs the data - did they do an UX training?1
to lazy to open atom, open git, to commit and push to add/test some features on my website, just used the chrome console to add and test new stuff 🤷♂️
I am starting on a fairly large project (a website). I am quite new to web-development. I know Laravel a little bit, but wanted to hear if I should switch to something like mean or anything else before I get to in depth with my project? Or would Laravel suffice?
As of now, I am only interested in the backend.4
So i should use window.open i think, but how do i like execute js on this website after opened?8
No, sorry you can't get a torrent link of the new version of the torrent client. But, we're happy to redirect you to our website and then reopen that client once we're done.3
Okay. I can't be the only one that thinks Reddit is a wretched website that perpetuates unhealthy zeitgeists for imaginary high fives, while diminishing new ideas and critiques. Right?2
I'm trying to generate a PDF from a website (https://devhints.io/react) on Ubuntu, but the two packages I tried (htmldoc and htmltopdf) both split the code at onto separate pages. I'm trying to have the code blocks on one page or start a new page and then have the title of the code block and the code block.
If by mistake I edited the URL while browsing website, I press ESC key to restore. How can I achieve this in new MacBook?2

Probably a super noob question: I have a droplet on DigitalOcean with a website. What is the best to update it, make changes? My idea was to clone the droplet, make the changes and then point my domain to the new ip, but I have to wait for hours for the changes to take place...4
