Hi, here is my portfolio page, please let me know your thoughts.
Two things for now:
I am not sure if I can set up working ‘contact me’ form where send button actually sends an email without any server side code running. Please advise.
It seems that skype social button doesn’t work, i tried with a href=“skype:-skype-name-?chat” but onclick doesn’t take me to my account for some reason…
Yes, you do need a server to send an email. Most of us just left the functionality out until we can do it in the back-end ourselves, however it does look like there are api’s you can use (https://www.emailjs.com/).
Yeah, your Skype button does not work at all. It opens my Skype program (on my computer) and tries to call live# or something. This is because when you do skype:username, if the user has skype installed, it will actually call the “username” (which I don’t think is practical for your website).
ok thanks a lot,
I guess I will wait until I reach back end stuff to fix email issue,and most likely leave skype button out for now…
Check this out, maybe it will work:
Not the most secure, but if you don’t mind “hackers” seeing your email, go for it!
