When I originally wrote my portfolio into the website… well I don’t know what the hell I was thinking. There were no links and it instead used JavaScript to pop-up a window based on the id attribute value. Obviously I was asleep that day. It was completely non-accessible and you had to have JavaScript enabled just to view any piece.

Thankfully my live redesign broke the portfolio. Thus I was forced to rewrite the html completely. It’s now 100% accessible. On the final redesign I’ll use some unobtrusive JavaScript to hijax the link and open it in a new window if JavaScript is enabled.

Meanwhile development of the new redesign is going amazingly! I’m really happy with how things are shaping up and I can’t wait to show off the new design to the world.

Rather than waiting until the final design I’ve thrown in some quick JavaScript to open portfolio items in a new window.
