Would love Feedback from my Tribute Page

Hi all,

So below is a link to my first project - a tribute page. I would really appreciate it if I could have some feedback. I’ve included comments on how I would like to develop it further, as I learn more.

Thank you so much.

I like the minimalist feel that the page gives. Have you checked if you’ve passed the user stories test?

Your page looks good @ruthnwata. Some things to revisit;

  • Codepen provides the boilerplate for you. It only expects the code you’d put within the body element in the HTML editor. (No need to include the body tags). For anything you want to add to the <head> element click on the ‘Settings’ button, then HTML and add it into the ‘Stuff for <head>’ box.
    • For instance, links to fonts go in the box labeled ‘Stuff for <head>’
  • Run your HTML code through the W3C validator.
    • There are HTML syntax/coding errors you should be aware of and address.
    • Since copy/paste from codepen you can ignore the first warning and first two errors.
  • Codepen provides validators for HTML, CSS and JS. Click on the chevron in the upper right of each section and then click on the respective ‘Analyze’ link.
    • The one for CSS is good. Use it and address the issue(s).
    • (The one for HTML misses things which is why I recommend W3C)
  • In addition to being used incorrectly you should not use the <br> element to force line breaks or spacing. That’s what CSS is for.
  • Accessibility is about being accessible to all users. Review the giving meaningful text to links lesson. For a more thorough explanation read Web Accessibility in Mind.
    • wikipedia” is not accessible
  • You may want to revisit the positioning of the quote within the picture. While okay on a larger screen on smaller screens the text cannot be read.

Thank you so much for the feedback, I’ll be going over some of your suggestions and change accordingly.

Thank you :smile: I have passed the user stories test. However, I’ll be making some changes.
