Why did I redo my portfolio
I created my first portfolio in 2016, second in 2017. Compare to the first one, the second (profungi.github.io) used a creative template with a bunch of nice photo filters. It has a better look and feel but 2 fetal problems:
- Belt shape presentation is not the best choice for portfolio.
If people lose interest at the beginning, they won’t have patience to see the following artwork; as I am keep working on projects, the site will be like Snake, which is unfriendly for searching.
- Design style inconsistency.
I moved the site and changed the interface, but I kept the project detail page on the old site. The two sites have completely different design style, which will confuse visitors.
As I am planning to add my projects, switching to a new platform to start over was the best choice.
Site update memo
Create child site
create site structure
add animation effect
domain name pointing to the sub-site failed (1&1 sucks)
got another space and plan to migrate the site
impossible to migrate a sub-site to another host
tried export and import the content, but still not the site itself
Rebuild a site again?
added hotjar to both two portfolio site
