I was just wondering what people here think of freelancing on Upwork in order to make some extra money. The reason I ask is while I am learning towards a junior developers job I could do with keeping the part-time job I have at the moment as it is for the evenings and free's up my days to learn. Ideally I could do with keeping this position until Christmas. The only problem is the money is poor and I may be forced into something else sooner with longer hours, which would have a negative impact. I could do with having a bit more control over my timeline.
Does anybody have any thoughts on my approach?
I wanna know where you are from and which language you need to be web designer like the following.
Country : Japan
Plus you basically just need to know how to customize jQuery.
I really wanna know to what extent I should learn JS or php if I need to learn them as web designer in some countries.
Ok, so this is a slightly strange request but my clients have asked me to put in some ads that appear to the side of the drop down menu text... I have had a quick couple of searches of plug ins but can't find anything suitable for this. Any suggestions? Or what alternatives would you suggest? It's a tourist website that also sell advertising space to local businesses and vacation rentals
Let me start by declaring that I'm just a kid trying to self teach myself wordpress, simply because I enjoy it as a hobby. This is my first ever website, so constructive criticism in easy-to-understand terms is welcome!
I have made a website advertising myself as a web developer. Let me remind you I'm just doing this as a hobby for friends and family - so don't expect the website to be anywhere near the standard of a professional designer!!!
I think I have just about finished the website, however there are a couple of issues that I would like to clear up that I don't understand.
1. When I am on the website and switching to and from the different navigation pages it loads very quickly. However, when I haven't been on the website for a few hours and load it up by typing 'magnifiweb.co.uk' into the URL, it can take at least 5 seconds to load the home page. I have used some speed test websites like Pingdom, and it says that the wait time is mainly down to the URL 'waiting'. I have absolutely no redirects set up to slow this process down, so can't understand why only sometimes it can take this long to load.
2. Using the same Pingdom speed test website (see attached image), there is an image called 'logooriginalwhitebg150px-150x150.jpg' I have circled this in red. This is an OLD image that I decided to remove from my Wordpress media library and and not use anymore. I navigated to the location of this image in my File Manager in Cpanel and deleted it from the folder as well - but for some reason it keeps coming back! Every time I go and check that folder in cpanel the same image has come back on it's own. Very frustrating.
Any advice on these matters is greatly appreciated!
