I’ve had a blast putting together this portfolio website, although it took some time to bring it to life. The backbone of the site is de Mogi Core, but I’ve customized it extensively to suit my preferences. Each project I undertake involves a unique approach, incorporating different plugins and elements to give each page its own distinct flavor and vibe. This not only helps convey the message effectively but also involves delving into the functionality of Elementor.
I'm excited to share this work and plan to continuously update and refine the portfolio with new projects and journal entries
Drastically different looks by design: I particularly love the iWatch concept pages and the Loqed app page; they showcase drastically different looks by design. I’m excited to share this work and plan to continuously update and refine the portfolio with new projects and journal entries
Journal entries: When it comes to journal entries, some are custom-made while others follow a similar format. It’s always enjoyable to experiment with new and diverse styles that best fit each project.
Yoast SEO: I’ve implemented Yoast SEO for the SEO aspects. Right now, the main pages and projects are all set, but I plan to enhance the journal entries to match the quality of the existing main pages.
Optimizing the website’s speed:
A key focus for me was optimizing the website’s speed. I’ve experimented with various plugins, custom code snippets, and different caching options like WP Meteor, WP Performance Score Booster, WP Super Cache, and W3 Total Cache. Although W3 Total Cache initially offered decent speed after fine-tuning, I eventually settled on WP Rocket.
It performs exceptionally well straight out of the box and offers extensive features upon deeper exploration. Presently, I’m pleased with the site’s speed; using GTmetrix, I’ve achieved a B score, which is good, but I aim to implement additional optimizations to reach an A rating.
Ultimately, building a fast portfolio was crucial, and I’m thrilled that achieving speed didn’t require significant compromises. I’ll continue refining the mobile version until it reaches satisfactory performance metrics.
