Issue 8 - A new author, a scroll-to-top button, and some refactoring
May 31, 2023 · 3 minutes to read
Welcome to Issue 8 of the 11ty Bundle...a smattering of stuff.
TL;DR We've got a new author with a bunch of posts, I did some refactoring under the hood here, added a scroll-to-top button to the site, and we've lost some blog posts.
While I was traveling over the Memorial Day weekend, I happened upon a new blog post about Eleventy. And once I looked at the site, I was pleased to find 10 posts about Eleventy. These are by John M. Wargo and several of them are listed below. I expect that he'll be writing more about Eleventy in the future.
There are a couple of other posts to highlight. First, There's an excellent review of Bryan Robinson's book Eleventy by Example, by Raymond Camden. And second, speaking of Raymond Camden...I had not seen this before, but he wrote an excellent piece called "A Complete Guide to Building a Blog with Eleventy," which he updated in March of this year. If you're just getting started with Eleventy, this would be yet another great place to start.
You may (or may not) notice that there's now a scroll-to-top button in the lower right-hand corner of your display. In the event you go way down into the Firehose or a long list of category posts and want to come up for air, it floats you to the top.
Lastly, the total post count has dropped a tad. The site of one of our authors has gone 404 and a few other blog posts seem to no longer exist. Now I need to figure out how to instrument the site to detect this automatically and prevent bad links from being published.
Until next time...
