Raspberry Pi tutorial website

Hello Raspberrians,

Before we get talking, let me tell you a bit about myself. I am a 16 year old student wanting to study engineering at university. The first time I ever interacted with Raspberry Pi was when there was an event taking place to learn a little about the LED RPi HAT. From then onward I got really interested on buying a Raspberry Pi for myself. Luckily i got a Raspberry Pi 2B for free. :D


I recently made a WordPress website that's running off my Raspberry Pi Zero W. On the website, there are some basic tutorials for Raspberry Pi such as images and installing android.
I would really appreciate it and tell me what I could do to improve it. I am not that great at writing English so bear with me.

Thanks! :mrgreen:

The link is part of the user details to the right of the post itself.

Nice web site.

It is possible that a person can have more than one web site, so it is a good practice to include a link to the specific site you want people to go to. I have known web masters to carry several beepers, one for each web site they have responsibility for so they can be notified of an issue while at a primary job not associated with their web sites.

It is not unreasonable for a person to maintain one or more instructional site, a personal blog site and a work web site.

No such thing exists from a mobile browser. I'm unable to find the link.

Thanks for the tip. I added the link to the post. I just add/improve the posts i make every evening or so. Do you know anything about SEO? I would like my site to come in top results, but as there are many websites out there, I'm pretty doubtful. I have gotten google to index my site.

If you can get reddit talking about your website, you can improve your search listing.
Here's a humorous example.

With Firefox 61.0.2 (latest) I'm getting this -
Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.html.dynu.net has configured their web site improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this web site.

www.html.dynu.net uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for html.dynu.net Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN
And similar with older versions of Chrome
This server could not prove that it is www.html.dynu.net; its security certificate is from html.dynu.net. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection.
Chrome 68 lets me through to the site, as does Chromium on a Pi.

Probably because Chrome tries leaving off the 'www' bit and that works and it's valid.

I found the problem. I don't have a certificate for the www part. Only for the site html.dynu.net. Let me update the link once again. Thanks for pointing this out! :D

This is cool! I wonder if Reddit did it too often if Google would blacklist their indexes :P

That is a great web site you have created there, DarkPlatinum.

I have one suggestion...

Whenever you describe configuring WiFi or any other interface, please specify the OS you have used and the exact version.

These things change over time. In a year or so Raspbian will have rearranged such things yet again and anyone finding your instructions will be mightily confused when nothing works with their new OS. We see such problems here every day.

Similarly, if you have instructions for configuring/using any software state the exact versions of the software you have tested this with.

Things change all the time and it wastes millions of hours of human life for people to follow instructions and find they no longer work.

Stating the exact OS and application versions, and hard ware model as well, could save people a lot of frustration in the future.

Thank you for this suggestion. I will add it to the website shortly. :)
