The Second… er, well, Second, Third, and Fourth Weekly Website Update(s)

This post was supposed to be published on Wednesday, November 9, 2016, and comprise the results of the second of my 52 Weekly Websites challenge. However, what I wanted to accomplish was a bit more complex than I thought it would be, and I’ve had some other pressing responsibilities to tend to, and I ran out of time.

So, this is being published on Wednesday, November 23, 2016, and provides a mostly functioning main menu for the overall site. The “Home” and “About” buttons both work now. Each replaces the text in the “Jumbotron” area on the main page by using JavaScript to manipulate the Document Object Model (DOM) in the user’s web browser. You can see the results at

In my defense, these buttons were working before the November 9, 2016, deadline. It was the “Contact Form” page that was the holdup – more about that in next week’s post, so be sure to come back for the whole story.

Update on 2018-07-23: note that if you use the “Projects” drop-down menu and choose “Week 1” you get the home page. If you choose “Week 2” it looks like you just get the home page again, but this time the “Home” menu item is selected; the same goes for “Week 3” and “Week 4” – they really are doing something, it just might not be readily apparent.
