I made an animated header. I was actually rather pleased with it. The header was reasonably subtle, had enough animated elements to fulfill part of the assignment criteria, and wasn’t too garishly intrusive. So, why “damned animations”?
The files uploaded, and the HTML5 script is in place. But will the damned thing show up here?
*hint – look at the top of the page where there is NO DAMNED ANIMATION*
Oh, hang on, I’ll fix it at some point… Here’s a screenshot, for posterity. See the big empty box at the top of the page? Yeah, that’s where it should be, where it says “header”.
I may have mentioned before that I’m not a huge fan of animated website content. I find it distracting and annoying, and will run for the hills if there’s too much, or if it’s noisy. There’s nothing as distracting as sudden music or being spoken to unexpectedly when you’re alone at the laptop.
But they have to be there for the purposes of this project, so I have to make and install some animated content. I decided to make a header, and maybe a side piece, or a footer. And the header won’t go in.
(Cue the sound of Sarah beating her head on the table, before giving up to go and watch the Walking Dead.)
I’ll fix it, somehow. Not sure how yet, but I’ll work it out.
