    Last week I created a topic asking people if they knew anything about Viewbook because I was thinking about using it to redo my website. Everyone seemed to have their own opinion on what to use and it seems there are a lot of people who have their own site. So let's post our sites!

    1. Post the URL to your site.
    2. Did you make your own website, if not who did?
    3. What program did you or the creator use to make it?
    4. Was it user friendly?
    (If you just want to post the URL, that is fine. I am not a regular topic starter but I have gathered that people like structure with these things so I numbered the questions for you all to love or hate!)

    My answers...
    1. http://www.jonathanprussell.com/
    2. I made mine and damn proud! I am not so great with computers.
    3. I used Viewbook and would recommend it other artists.
    4. Yes! I struggled with a few things but figured it out. phew.

    I'm a graphic/web designer and yes I made my own site. I'm a little wary to post it though because it has all my contact info and I've had some issues with that in the past. If anyone is in a similar field or knows someone who needs work, then hit me with an email and I'll send you the url.

    However if you wanna see one of the sites I did....go here www.myremix.com

    Nice job with the site. It's clean and keeps the focus on the beautiful art work. My only critique would be to make the pictures bigger since you have such a large canvas to work with.

    I have to agree with sxydrkhair, the "On My Mind" section is one of my favorite. The "Digital Work" section is also really great.

    Very talented!

    I also like the On my mind section Jonathan.

    Word of advice though, under your contact section you have your email address fully written out. Spammers have software that crawls the net looking for written out emails they can add to all the junk and malicious email lists. So you might want to just have email with an under line through it or different color to denote it's a link. Just a suggestion.

    This works for only a few bots still. Most bots view page source as well as content. Another easy (yet a little more difficult than displaying the text) is to obfuscate the email address with javascript.

    On a website I built for a client, I used a simple code like this:

    <.script type="text/javascript">
    <.!--
    var string1 = "info";
    var string2 = "@";
    var string3 = "company.com";
    var string4 = string1 + string2 + string3;
    document.write("" + string4 + "");
    //--.>
    <./script>

    (Without the periods... RJ comments read HTML and all...)
    Unless someone builds their bot to parse javascript code to test for an email, then it shouldn't be picked up. Most bots are going to look for a "mailto" link, and take whatever value is directly after it. If your markup never shows "mailto" in it, it shouldn't be picked up. And in the event that the bot is viewing content for 'mailto' links, you can always just skip the "string4" var above and just use "Email me" as the linked text.
