Title: New UQM-Mods Website.
Post by: JHGuitarFreak on July 19, 2014, 01:42:39 am
I have built from the ground up a new version of the UQM-Mods website, based on the styling of the old flash website. I did that only as a challenge for myself though.

Built using PHP, CSS3, HTML5, and using the Twitter Bootstrap framework. There is a lot more involved than that and you can read it in the humans.txt(bottom left of the page there is a link to it).

To turn off the music there is a pause/play button at the bottom right. Or it will be located bottom center on mobile devices.

I mainly did this because flash is on its way out and I wanted a site that would at least work on most mobile devices.

Man, that's awesome.  I'll go here just to listen to the music (oh, and download mods).

Great to hear some feedback! You can download the music if you choose to do so in the downloads section.

If I were not embarrassed by my own hacked together coding I would open source the site along side the mods on Sourceforge. Once I feel it is cleaned up enough I will do so.

I am constantly working on the website to streamline it and make it quicker. Right now I am having issues with Sourceforge's hosting and it not letting me give the right permissions to my minifiers so I can cache my minified CSS/JS.
