So I’m just starting (or trying to start) my Personal Portfolio challenge, and I’m running into the same instant roadblock I did when I tried to start my Tribute Page challenge. In spite of all the coding tutorials we did in the early lessons, I still have no idea what the first things are that I should be doing when creating a new page or site from scratch. Once I get the basic framework in place I feel semi-confident that I can mess with the various elements to get things looking the way I want them to, but it’s that initial setup work that I’m totally clueless about.
I spent about the last hour searching around on Google, but so far all I’m coming up with are various other tutorial programs like FCC, which isn’t what I’m looking for. I’m wondering if someone can give me some basic pointers to the effect of, “when creating a new page/site, you should always start by doing this, this, and this”. I’m sure every site is different, but if there are some good “rule of thumb” type things to know about, that’s what I’m after. Can anyone help?
Semi-related, I need to set up navigation for this challenge, but we’ve never discussed it on FCC. Does anyone know of any navigation tutorials out there that can explain how it’s done?
