Even though the company is far from a "real" business, I want to share this adventure with my friends and colleagues - so I'm linking up this site with those social media I use myself, i.e. Facebook and LinkedIn. To do this properly, I need to create/update pages on those systems as well as improve the company home site. So, where to start?
I made some changes to the main site before republishing so any new visitor will see a clean site. I added "social buttons", so to fill these in correctly, I had to build a page - first on Facebook, then on LinkedIn. The main challenge: what content to put where? For now I'm just making up content and copying left-to-right.
Weebly UI considerations
Weebly is a cool tool to quickly build a website - but not to build a shop! Besides being limited to 5 products in the unpaid version, modifying these products is slow and cumbersome. I couldn't even get the correct price to show up for our main product. Eventually I just hid that main product from the shop - wouldn't want to give away the secrets too early, right?
Besides this, I need to get used to some of the interesting ways Weebly handles language settings as well as what some element settings are called - and how they work. But I'm learning quickly...
