We’re finally in the month of October which means that the Hacktoberfest event has begun. In my previous post, I mentioned a few issues I could take on and some goals I would like to achieve. Unfortunately, the issues I’ve mentioned have been already taken or a bit complicated for me to take on at the moment. My goal of contributing to a well-known application will also be a bit complicated of course so I might just stick to the basics and start small.
The first step I did with solving the issue was to think of how to solve it exactly. The original way the user could navigate between the pages was through the home page and that could be a tedious task for some users. Of course, there are multiple ways to solve this issue like adding the signup and login links in the navigation bar but I decided to add something pretty basic that I’ve seen on other websites. I decided to add “Don’t have an account?” and “Already have an account?” links to the login and signup pages respectively.
The owner also requested a cancel button on the login page so I’ve added a button that redirects the user to the home screen (which may not be needed since the user can just click back to the home page).
