Responsive Design Implemented

Although responsive design has always been a feature of Grammar Captive’s Podcast Hostpage, this has not been true of the Grammar Captive mainpage.  Now when you view the Grammar Captive mainpage in your browser on your smartphone, it appears more like a mobile application in column format.  The banner is still at the top, and the footer is still at the bottom, but the navigation bar, content-filled middle section, and sidebar are now vertically, rather than horizontally aligned.  This format will provide a much better mobile-user experience.


The Proof Is in the Pudding

Hard disk failure is hard.  But, as the saying goes, “The tough get going, when the going gets tough”.

It is a humble beginning, but the proof is in.  Find the entry Your Data and You under the Visitor Profile subheading in the navigation bar of the Grammar Captive mainpage.  Then, click and wait a moment for your data to fill.  There will be much more to come, but the foundation has been laid.

It is the beginning of Grammar Captive’s Looking Glass — your data mirror on the Grammar Captive website.


The Excitement Builds

Although technical problems with Grammar Captive’s host server prevent me from implementing this important first step for show, I have just broken the impasse in the creation of an online data mirror for  Grammar Captive visitors.

It is a win-win relationship for entrepreneur and visitor, for the entrepreneur shares with his visitors the data that he collects and thereby instructs visitor’s about their own behavior. It also plays up to the visitor’s vanity and thus discourages him or her from opting out.  Crushing government oppressions is thus circumvented.

I will post the first mirror as soon as it is ready for public display, and in it you will be able to see your own data profile.

Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!


Matomo Implementation Begins

Although I am loathe to say that my study of Matomo is complete, I have learned enough to begin implementation.  For without implementation I have no way to test what I have learned, and there is so much more to learn.

With so many things to track and report and so many ways of doing each, selecting the proper combination of parameters and methods is time-consuming and surely an art that one must through doing.

Matomo is not just Google Analytics without Google.  It is far more. And, you will be very surprised when I begin posting some of the things that I have discovered.  For Matomo is not just about gathering and analyzing information from visitors, it is also about sharing this information with those from whom the information is gathered.
