Building a Custom Trail Map Using OSM and Mapbox

Migrating from HTTP to HTTPS

I recently switched my hiking conditions website from HTTP and HTTPS.  Google’s documentation noted there may be a dip in my search rank and traffic while they re-index the site, but my experience was almost no detectable dip in the numbers. Here is the before and after from my Google Analytics account: That being said. Don’t … Continue reading Migrating from HTTP to HTTPS

I designed the NH Project Learning Tree website based on the national PLT.org website, and a PLT Style Guide published by Texas PLT.

Parsons, PhD.
