What YO Need to Know! New Yo-Yo Website!

I made a yo-yo website! I worked for HOURS a day coding it, for about a week. It was a TON of work, and it’s really simple, and soon I will probably make it flashier, but I did my best for now. It is hosted by www.isayoyoplayer.com, and if you want to know more about www.isayoyoplayer.com, see this thread:

So, without further ado, here’s the website!


Thanks to Tyler3490 for writing most of the reviews, Raphael for writing a review, and most of all Josh Parker (Schalicto) for helping me out a ton with getting it online and hosting it and fixing bugs in it. I wouldn’t have been able to make this website without them all. (but mostly Josh)

Give some feedback! Thanks,

Nice website! Simple, but has lots of info.

Just wondering, what did you use to code it? Notepad?

I run on Mac, so I used textedit. Most people don’t know how to do it, but basically you code it in textedit, then go to the format menu and select “convert to plain text”. Then save it as something.html, and you’re all set for the internet.

Nice website. One thing though i don’t think to the green works well IMO :confused: Anyway nice work :wink:

Do you have any color requests?

It’s only really for the review pages where the text is smaller. I just find it hard to read. Silly eyes ::). Err… other that your classic white bg and black text no. Sorry to such a horrible critic :-[

I think the biggest thing that your website needs now is form. You’ve got all the data you need for now. Do you know how to use CSS?

I don’t know what that is, but I’m sure if you meet me in the chatroom you could explain it to me.

Yeah, horrible colors. Other than that, nice.

Hehe, I wish I could explain it to you. I used to know a fair bit about it(enough to give me a decent website) a few months ago. But now I barely remember anything!

Basically, CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. They are documents that define how a webpage looks. I’ve got this website that I created for an English project last year.


I spent a great deal of time with the CSS on that; not so much on the coding. Simply put, you have to assign names to block-level tags. Then you can use that name in a CSS file to alter the attributes of that tag. For example, in my website above, when you hover the mouse over a menu item, it appears as if the button became depressed. That effect is created by altering about 5 of the link’s attributes.

I really don’t know how to explain CSS more than that, but you can check this out if you want to:

I learned how to use CSS from a “for Dummies” book :stuck_out_tongue:

Does anybody have any ideas for a background color?

red maybe, try out different colors and see what you think is best

That’s what I’m going to do, but I’ll have to do it tomorrow, I’m incredibly tired.

instead of making colors, make a background like this site. you scroll up and down and its the same! or make one of those repeating backgrounds, but that gets dizzying after a while if the picture is to small

Color update, I like this color a lot better, but it’s up to you guys.

But seriously, I’m coding this all by hand, you don’t understand how much work it takes to change the color on every page. I’m using HTML and only HTML, I don’t know what CSS even really is.

Another background update to the website and updates to the look of the links, I feel it looks much better now.

Make suggestions!

And good news, I’m going to start learning Javascript, so that’ll improve it by far!
