HSNet December 2015 Promo 2

The main things I wanted to accomplish with this set of graphics were simplicity and being able to easily feature different images. The symbol cutout is the symbol of an in-game organization, which was altered to give an appearance of brush strokes/graffiti. The clipped image is swapped out for each graphic and the accompanying text (eg. to post to tumblr) is changed accordingly, and includes a link to the site.

Hogwarts-School.Net

This project is one that started like many others–with “what if.” For many years–over a decade, if I have my dates right–this particular site was hosted on a mass message board conglomerate, and the service had always, well, left much to be desired. A small group of members, myself included, decided to explore our options for self-hosting, which would include, among other things, securing hosting, installing an unfamiliar message board software, and making sure that software would be able to do everything we wanted it to.

Eventually we settled on Simple Machines Forum, an open source software which would allow us to modify templates and database tables as needed. My part of the project was the templates – moving bits of code around, updating the software (sometimes manually, yeesh), and making sure none of the installed modifications conflicted with each other.

Over time, I’ve also made some very minor CSS modifications (font-face and altering the menus here and there, that sort of thing), as well as keeping up with updates and occasionally adding new features.

Simple PHP Helpdesk

This project was the final in my PHP web applications course. I was hoping to learn some object-oriented PHP over the course of the semester, but the work mainly focused on catching improper form data, using GET and POST to transfer data between pages, and the basics of writing and retrieving MySQL data with PHP.

The app is a simple helpdesk, like the title implies. At the registration page, users can either register as an admin by checking the box below the registration form, or as a regular user by leaving it unchecked. “Admin” users are able to see all open tickets in the helpdesk, while regular users can only see the tickets they submitted themselves.

From the list view, users can click to view each individual ticket with its details, replies, priority level, and more. From this page, users can also leave replies to the ticket, and all of the replies are displayed below the ticket body.
