*Oooops*

Today I just... deleted the whole website!!!
All gone, all because of one mistake I did.

Hopefully, my host company offered great support.
Phew...

*e-commerce*

I've been using woocommerce, a well known e-commerce solution for wordpress those days.

After having struggled a fair couple of hours on an update, I found my issue was related to the behaviour between the plugin and wodpress. Bummer.

Changing permalink settings to default got the e-commerce up and running again (too bad my urls look shitty as a result - hope next version will fix that)

UI changes

Made a couple design changes today, especially for the "no sidebar" template, I figured it would look more "serious".
_got rid of the white background
_changed menu border bottom color to fade more elegantly
_changed h2 border bottom and according ::after element
_changed font as well! (see previous post)

Hopefully the website is evolving in the right direction :)

*Font design*

The text font of a website is important, making a website nice and easy to read. With that in mind, I dropped the old "Tahoma" font and embraced "Open Sans".

Comissioned by Google, it was designed with legibility in mind (yeah, it looked good to me)

I implemented it using the now popular @font-face technique.

** Table design**

Yay! \o/ For some time now I had an issue with the table at:
http://www.cockpitseeker.com/aircraft/

It was (and still is) SO long that when scrolling down, you wouldn't see the table's titles anymore!

Problem solved thanks to the father of CSS, the famous Chris Coyier

Here's the persistent header trick:

Facebook, Google+, Twitter:

since I'm not sharing much on Google (and don't have an account on the latter), I figured I'd use google to share the "dev" side of "CockpitSeeker", code, design and inspiration sources (facebook being for the "communication" gig).

Here goes! Can't remember the website on which I found this 3d rendering of a Star Wars rebel X-wing pilot helmet, but I included it on all the "ENAC" pages, school renowned for its "jedi" access level difficulty.
