Science has proven that no matter who you are, or whatever you do, you are always learning and that is a fact. For me that fact has been reinforced as my first month comes to an end as an Apprentice at Symphony Online, where learning new things is part of the daily routine and anyone around the Symphony Online HQ will tell you the same.
I have found a resource that has helped me greatly upon my first month at Symphony, which is http://www.w3schools.com/. This is a fantastic site, bursting with tutorials on everything you need to know about creating websites.
This site can be used as a handy resource for an amateur who is in learning, such as myself, although it can still be used by professional as a refresher guide, as not even the best designer or coder knows everything!
The best thing about W3School however is the fact that the site shows you in a tutorial and then allows you to try it for yourself. Such as with CSS you can experiment how the object is changed due to the different attributes that you apply and for me, I found this invaluable as a learning tool as you are able to interact being a kinaesthetic learner instead of just being a visual learner.
I know for some of you out there it may seem like its teaching you to suck eggs, but if you get a spare moment, then check the site out. Who knows you may learning something new or just reinforce it.
Have you ever wanted to force a HTTPS connection for your ExpressionEngine website? If so, you may have also wanted to 'unforce' that connection for other areas of your website, either for performance issues or because maintaining both HTTP and HTTPS for the same section can be tricky. Avoid those pesky browser warnings about unsafe (non HTTPS) assets with this htaccess rewrite.
Thanks for your message! We will get back to you ASAP!
