So, I’m not sure how this one slipped by, to be honest, because I’m usually pretty good about making sure all supporting links are in place. But two years ago I did a new page in the Tips & Tricks gallery of the main site, about cropping, complete with video – no small project, that, and followed up with a podcast regarding the trials and tribulations (does anyone ever say “tribulations” without having “trials” in front of it?) of creating that video and doing the voiceover.
And just a few minutes ago, I noticed that there was no link on the main page of the Tips & Tricks gallery to the damn thing. Oh, it’s there now – I corrected that mistake within minutes. But how did I not only miss putting it in immediately, I never noticed the omission at any point since, until now?
It might have had something to do with being in the middle of radical site additions, creating 56 additional new pages that would go public a short while after the cropping page did, and if you think checking all of those links and dependencies is a quick job, you should avoid web design altogether. And of course, eliminating typos, and confirming species names, and ensuring the formatting is consistent… there’s a reason that I don’t do updates too often.
But still… two years…
