Evolution of Club Josh

June 28, 1995
Club Josh as it premiered on the Internet

Fall 1996 to March 1997
Club Josh with a new background image as well as a nice new large photo of Josh on Montara Beach. By this time, the site had introduced the concept of “sub pages” instead of just one looooooong page.

March-May 1997
The first version of Club Josh with a left nav appears

May-October 1997
First site with white background and images for the links

October-December 1997
Small change so that color on the images appeared using a new command called “mouseover”

Dec 1997 – Feb 1998
This is Club Josh temporarily gussied
up for the Holiday Season for the first and last time

Feb-June 1998
Club Josh featuring a classic Josh pic from 1976
This was the first use of the same design with swapping out a photo

June 1998 – April 1999
Image links were on the way out and you can tell by the lining up of the images in a list format. This was also the first appearance of the multicolor Club Josh logo

April 1999 – October 2000
Club Josh with minimal graphics and text links. There were several pictures in the spot since the Tomorrowland graphic, including a picture of me with a BMW Z8 picture.

October 2000 – September 2001
Slight change in color and addition of Daily Update . New Picture format led to high hopes for a greater rotation of pic. Also Daily Update addition was the first time home page had new content on a regular basis.

September 2001 – June 2005
It shows how much I have liked this design considering parts of it were still being used until 2012. I really settled on a layout I liked that contained all the elements I was looking for in a home page. Big additions: thumbnails highlight the different sections of site, What’s New content to homepage, and a slight logo change (removed the underline).

June 28, 2005 – June 30, 2009
White is the new yellow. Mid 00’s, I decided that I needed something more bloggish and modern, so I removed most of the color from the home page, but made the masthead a HUGE photo. This finally killed the quick rotation of photos which never panned out. This design started out as a center alignment then moved to a left alignment in its last two years (but with no other code changes). This also introduced a new signature Club Josh logo.

June 30, 2009 – May 25, 2013
This design took awhile to get going. I knew what I wanted for a long time (it is actually a good 2008 design launched in 2009). This site is the first designed for 1024×768, contains a much larger graphic and now for the first time TWO dynamic content sections – The Daily Update and now a Twitter feed. Also, the background is now grey and the elements float in white rounded boxes.

May 25, 2013 – present
First WordPress site using a slight modification to the default template. It’s responsive to the viewing platform and will hopefully change as I get better with either buying or making templates. This design also is the first with all-new code and does not contain any legacy code (just some legacy links). This also is the first time I finally got to implement a rotating banner image on the site.
Longest Running Design!
