Nice site. I wasn’t quite sure what to do until I found all the links at the bottom. You should find a way to get those links up at the top in a nice way. At least the most important ones.
It was also a bit weird, because I unlocked the badge for a course I took even though I wasn’t logged in. Are you using a plugin to unlock badges?
Also, is your blog a secondary blog or the main blog? I’m planning to do basically the same as you, but I can only get it to happen if I create a secondary blog (multi site) and then it all links up fine. The main blog still points to the main page and then it doesn’t show the posts (at least I don’t want it to). Is that what you’re doing with the blog? I do like that the blog kept the consistent theme. Felt like the same page.
Thanks both, I agree there should be more in the main nav (or it should just be gotten rid of). There is a secondary nav that’s only shown to logged in users.
@techguy that’s weird I did see one come up in the database without a user id. It’s a custom script I wrote, that just launched yesterday – probably still some bugs.
The blog is the main blog, I would recommend not using a secondary blog and following the tutorial @mercime posted (also many themes come with a blog page template). IMO It’s easier to maintain everything with a single blog.
Thanks @mercime I wondered what that other option in WordPress was for. Learn something new everyday. I guess it also makes sense that I could create a page template with the list of blog posts that could basically be like the normal blog index and style it however I want. Good stuff!
@jeremylyn I was surprised that it worked for me too. At least it told me it worked. Might just want to wrap the links to complete the courses in the is_user_logged_in() function and only display them if the user is logged in.
A new set of eyes always finds some bugs. That’s what we’re here for.
This isn’t particularly constructive I know, but I think the site looks great.
What plugin are you using for the badges?
It’s all custom, but I’m pretty sure there’s a badges plugin somewhere, can’t remember the name of the top of my head
though, im not a fan of the “must fill” (required) stuff when logging on via twitter. but still very cool.
oh, and the site seems a little sluggish..
nevertheless – very cool!
@jeremyltn Really nice, intuitive looking site! Is that a publicly available template? I think it looks very nice.
What photo upload plugin are you using? I’m looking for a very lightweight one that would enable me to limit how many pics a user can upload.
