In spite of the world seeming to be swirling the drain, life does go on. Yvonne and I missed out on coming to Delray last year (2021) because of that COVID thing. You may have heard about it.
But we’re back this year, and I decided to finally do something about the Section 6 map that gets published every year in the directory. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
The addresses on this map are all in the same direction. They’re legible. The map is interactive: it’ll be published behind the login on the https://www.highpointsection6.com/ website. I’ll also try to have it on this site; but only after I add a similar login.
It’s searchable, by first or last name. In the image above, you can see all the houses with the text “green” in the names, highlighted in orange. And when you click one of the houses the names and phone numbers appear in a pop-up dialog. (The names and numbers appearing here are mocked for privacy reasons.)
Finally, the map can be zoomed in and out, to help people with decreased eyesight.
I am planning on adding more features as time goes on. If you have any ideas, please do let me know.
There’s more to do before launching this project, and that will probably happen near the end of the year, or beginning of next. Big happenings when we return to Toronto, shortly; so won’t have a lot of time to dedicate to the map.
In the meantime, I wish you all good health, good fortune, and safe travels.
In Delray for a very brief visit, I attended the annual Section 6 board meeting, and was inspired to finally add content to the site. Here, then, is a list of all the content goodness I added in the past 24 hours. Continue reading “Loads of New Content!”
I’ve been playing around with various calendars. Two so far. I wasn’t happy with either one.
I think I’ve found one that not only has the functionality I’m looking for, but also looks pretty good.
Yes, my main issue with the current calendar is that it looks awful. Call me shallow. What’s more, I can’t tweak the styling because it’s hard-coded into the page markup. If all that’s a lot of gobbledegook nonsense to you, don’t worry; that’s why I’m here. I’ll keep futzing with it until I’m happy. Hopefully you’ll be happy too.
Aside from the awful styling, the calendar does what it’s supposed to: displays our upcoming events.
If you have any events coming up, or want to add some information to existing events, please drop me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org, or give me a call at 561 501-0119.
Hello all. My name is Alfred Ayache. I’ve been thinking about putting together a community website for High Point for a couple of years now. On new year’s day I bought the domain to help motivate me to get it done. And now here we are.
To start we’ll have the events calendar, and perhaps some posts about maintaining your unit. Eventually we’ll have the full directory, and you’ll be able to login and maintain your entry, so it will always be up to date. You’ll also be able to set up groups for specific interests, chat with your friends and neighbours, and advertise units for sale or rent.
If you have any ideas for this website, please let me know. In the meantime, I hope you find the events calendar useful. If you want to help out, please let your friends and neighbours know about this website.
Also, if you’re responsible for a given event, and you’re so inclined, you are welcome to maintain its entry in the calendar. Give me a call and we’ll get you sorted.
