    Hi Rayees, Excellent Mashup.  I like your layout and chosen image, alhough, it is quite large and takes up too much realestate on the page imo.  I like how you used multiple different methods to pull in data from different sites as...

    I am adding all of my files online for anyone to access. I think it's important to share information with others and maybe someone will find some information about Comp 266 course to help them prepare. If you have any questions let me know.

    • Hi Rayees,

      Excellent Mashup.  I like your layout and chosen image, alhough, it is quite large and takes up too much realestate on the page imo.  I like how you used multiple different methods to pull in data from different sites as well.

      One thing that I think would be helpful is if the widgets that display the data on the pinboard could be set to be default open or closed.  That way you could cusomize to only have the widgets that you really care about at the time open and 'hide' the rest that are pretinent to you at the time.  While I haven't really checked, i'm assuming this is something that is limited in functionality by The Landing. 

      Great work!

      Cheers,

      Matt

    • Hi Matt,

      Thank you for the great feedback. I agree regarding the image. I wanted to have something like a banner on the header but didn't realize how big the image looked. If I had to do this artifact again, I would use a smaller banner-style image.

      Regarding the pinboard widgets, unfortunately, I could not find a setting in The Landing system that allows visitors to make a selection to open or close the various columns. The content publisher has the option to "show an excerpt" for each pinboard widget, which I left on as I personally thought the option would be beneficial as I get to see the introductory content of the posts before I click on the link. 

      Kind Regards,

      Rayees

    • Hi Shawn,

      I really like your layout in this assignment. It's easy to read and follow along with lots of pictures!

      I hope you don't mind that I might immitate your layout a bit for my posts. I'm not a very good blogger, the formatting tools also takes a bit for me to figure out.

      Great work!

      Cindy
