New Website

By Sayaka

Alright, folks! The new website is now live. A lot of work has gone into it, a fair bit of hours working around certain limitations of the system, making sure things worked, making them as ‘handsoff’ as possible. There’s a lot of work that went into this, through the few weeks we had. I’ll be going into more detail in a later blog post, but below, there’s some of the stuff we use, and what we’ve gone through.

We’re currently using Hugo as our CMS, it’s a static website that uses Markdown for it’s formatting. The theme was written from the ground up over the course of a month (Big thanks to Koda, as she’s helped a -ton- with the CSS on the website), and the website is pretty much ready to host encounter and job guides. The list pages are currently a little barebones, but that’s attributed to lack of ideas on how to style them. The entire website will receive constant updates.

With all that said, I’d like to thank everyone in The Balance community – Patron or not. In every way, you probably helped me come up with this in some way and actually finish it. So, thank you!

From now on, every single one of our guides is going to be hosted here. We’re working hard to fix some of the issues we’ve had and working around some of the limitations, and we appreciate the patience.
