Grav Setup Part Two
This past week was more consolidated because I spent the beginning of the week on vacation, but when I came back I started working on recreating some Figma pages Maddy had mocked up using Gantry 5 on Grav. Gantry 5 is the block editor that I mentioned in last week’s post. It allows for easier website creation for those who do not have as much experience with web development / coding (me). De’She and I were both working on this task, but I have continued to have issues getting Grav to work through both the local host and a sandbox that Ruben had set up. However, there was a brief window of time where I was able to start building the website. I was pretty confused by basic changes, but we had a long working meeting with Ruben and Maddy where we asked our questions. The main thing that helped me was working through some of the custom CSS tasks and developing a workflow for the custom CSS. This workflow would look something like identifying the visual element needed –> inspecting the element on the non-admin view –> looking at the Figma for dimensions/details –> testing changes in that inspect window –> adding the changes using the custom CSS tool in the Page Settings part of Gantry 5. Unfortunately, the challenges are still continuing as I cannot see the non-admin view anymore for some reason. Hopefully, it will be okay, but if not, I may need to not work on this project anymore.
