hello! i've casually admired your site from afar for a while and finally got around to trying to make one myself - i'd like to ask, how do you go about stuff like adding new sheets to your styleswitcher div/changing your navigation div, and having that change apply to all your pages without using iframes or going insane (manually pasting it across all pages)?

this feels like one of those super basic questions but nobody on the internet is answering it for me besides making me feel like i should look into static site generators, which ii'd rather not do if possible

Hello and congratulations on your new web project! I had to write an entire separate post about this because my answer got comically long-winded. Keep me posted!

I love your new guestbook, it's so sleek and I love that you reply to messages! I was wondering how you're hosting it since neocities are static - are you using an external provider?

P.S. Your themes are so inspirational!

Thank you very much, I'm flattered! So, this answer might be a little disappointing, but this website actually isn't hosted by Neocities - I maintain a mirror there for Exposure™, but all it does is redirect here, which is hosted on a server that supports PHP. However, what I did prior to implementing the PHP stuff was use an external provider (Formspree) to beam the form input to my email, then I would add them to the page manually. It's tedious, but if you really want full control over your guestbook presentation on a static webpage, it's pretty hard to beat.

Testing new gb! Using the solanum theme now

Thanks for always being my new feature guinea pig!

hi, i appreciate your mobile accessibility post so much! this reluctance to make pages usable on mobile was one of the first things i noticed in this space, and where i knew i disagreed from the start. i'm a ux designer and i know just how many people don't have access to a desktop computer anymore.

Thank you for the message! I really hope a lot of the attitude boils down to ignorance and not malice, but maybe I'm being too optimistic? In any case, I do feel like I've seen a modest increase in people at least putting mobile compatibility on their to-do list (entirely anecdotal, but maybe it is a sign of a larger trend. I hope so!)

Thanks for your little microblog mentioning camel crickets; I've spent a good chunk of time thinking all these little guys that hang out in my basement wander in by mistake and then get trapped there (and then subsequently feeling bad that I'm not dexterous enough to catch and let them go outside). Nice to know they're actually just hanging out!

I'm happy to hear I could help with your cricket guilt! They're just little guys hanging out.

i love how readable ur web layout is + your art is amazing!!!! farah is absolutely adorable. i love her isopod form <3 i also borrowed the little grid snippet from ur snippet page... it's so helpful... thank u for putting that one up ;_;

Farah will be thrilled to find out she has fans. I love your art too!

You're absolutely right about the weird twitter like popularity contest thing in regards to the neocities community. I've been thinking of leaving the platform because of that as well honestly, I feel like I'm too old to be there. And also to have an actual back-end lol. I've added your rss feed and I'm looking forwards to your updates as always!

Cabbage, August 29, 2022

Yay, someone's using my RSS feed! I definitely recommend checking out another host if you feel constrained by Neocities. There are a lot of good free options out there if you're willing to do some weeding.

Thank you for your lovely comment in my guestbook. It's a real compliment coming from such a talented artist. Your site is beautiful and your art is absolutely stunning!

Louie, August 23, 2022

You're too kind, thank you! I'm looking forward to seeing more from you!

I'm happy you liked it!

i love new layout, it looks so old-school but it's still modern. colors are great, plant motif in sidebar too

Thank you! I'm pleased that it's still obvious I learned HTML in 2009.
