FCC tribute page-I'm stuck

Hi, I’m very new here.

I’m still working on building my tribute page and I’m wondering what else I should add. I’m pretty sure that there’s a lot more code I could and should add, especially within CSS.

Challenge: Build a Tribute Page

@KKingery Okay. Here are a few things you can do to improve the page.

  • Add a special font to highlight sections such as the headings of paragraphs.
  • Contain the text to a certian width so that it does not go across the whole page.
  • Possiblly add a background image.
  • Balance the design by repeating colors from your theme in certain areas such as the footer, icons, border, background image.

Here is a nice example that another camper made Jimi Hendrix Tribute

Hi @KKingery, welcome to the forums. The one thing you need to add is code that passes all the user stories.

  • Keep the test script when forking the pen (<script src="https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/testable-projects-fcc/v1/bundle.js"></script>). Your page passes 5/10 user stories.
  • Review the lesson about giving meaningful text to links

Once you’ve successfully met all the user stories, you’re good. As you progress you’ll learn some additional things that you may want to go back and add to your tribute page. You can, it’s not necessary though.

Thanks for the tips! I’ve been wanting to add special texts to the headings, but I’ve had a lot of trouble with the font I wanted to use. I should add a footer, right? I’ll look over the page you sent.

@KKingery, here are a couple of things you can do improve your page:

  • use a modern font (have a look at Google font and pick one that picks you)
  • leave the text in black
  • align them left
  • add a title (h2?) and name it early life or about. This will be the header of the description you just mentioned
  • I suggest you present your timeline as this

You can get inspiration here too.

Good luck!

Hello. Fellow newbie here. I found the book, Hello Web Design by Tracy Osborn a helpful introduction to web design. It’s a short, easy read. Here’s the link to get her book https://hellowebbooks.com/ - or you can find it on Amazon.com. Best, Jeff
