Personal portfolio review/feedback

Hello fellow learners (and pros!),
Kindly assess my Personal Portfolio and let me have your feedback. I tried working with the ‘mobile-first’ approach for the first time!

Your portfolio looks good @Jedidiah. Some things to revisit;

  • It looks as though your nav extends beyond the container. (See the screenshot)
  • We don’t have access to your Google acc’t so the project pics are not showing. If you didn’t know, codepen creates large and small screen shots of your pens that can be used in your portfolio. Access them from; (for the large screenshot)
    or (for the small screenshot)
    • where you replace userName with your codepen userId and slug with the id of one of your codepen pens and then copy that link into your portfolio

It’s a nit, you don’t have to fix it if you don’t want to. I think it would look better if the checkboxes aligned vertically rather than popping in and out.

@Roma, I didn’t know about codepen’s screenshots and I later discovered images (uploaded from Google photos) weren’t showing on one other project! Thanks for the information. Issues fixed. Better than my earlier submission?

And, just wondering if there’s any way to remove the test suit dialogue box from the screenshots? :thinking:

Yes @Jedidiah, that looks better.

Yes but…

You can comment out the test script but it should be included when you submit your projects so that’s not the best of ideas.
What I did was temporarily comment out the test script, got the screenshot and copied that to GitHub. Then I uncommented the testscript. So in the portfolio the link to the project points to codepen and the test script can be seen and run but the image comes from codepen and it shows without the test suite dialogue box.
It’s a little extra work.

Firstly, I’ve received my certificate of completion! Thanks to the @freeCodeCamp team; and the ever-available ‘leaders’. I’ve already commenced my JS certification.
Secondly, I tried hosting my images on GitHub so as to remove the codepen dialogue box from my thumbnails but seems I’m not doing it right. Sometimes my images are displayed, and sometimes they’re not. I’m new to GitHub and I understand there’s a lot I don’t know yet. Any help?

I’m looking at your portfolio page @Jedidiah and the link to your project image looks correct but when I go into GitHub I don’t see that you have any repositories.

Did you have one and delete it?

It looks like there was one called FCC-RWD (that’s according to your image link) but it’s no longer there.

It’s possible when you first load the images onto GitHub and provide the link to the image in codepen that they may not show for a few minutes. But if you refresh, you’ll see them.

Oh, my repository’s visibility was set to PRIVATE; now it’s PUBLIC and seems that’s solved the problem. Thanks

Okay, easy fix.

I didn’t think of the the private setting since you said “Sometimes my images are displayed, and sometimes they’re not”.

Glad you got it resolved.
