Known limitations for The Hamster Care:

  1. Blog Post Articles and Landing Pages: Articles with internal and external linking with anchor text that are non-descriptive such as “click here” or “here”. because In search engine optimization, this practice was encouraged. In effort of making web browsing more accessible, this practice is now outdated.. While as of November 2021, we only have 70 published articles plus 18 pages, our team is consist of 2 people. Both of us have full-time work outside managing this blog site. We are working on changing these anchor texts with more descriptive words.
  2. Images: Some images on the blog articles might not have descriptive alt text or descriptions as they are used for aesthetical reasons. because We have over 400 images. All are either used for blog posts, marketing tools, and the design layout of the website.. We are working to update these images with more descriptive alt texts and descriptions.
  3. Website Accessibility: There are pages or parts of our website; such as fonts, colours, images, and formats that do not convert or display properly which affects that site accessibility. because Some tools, plugins, codes, etc are often not compatible with each other since they are made by different developers. We have over 10 plugins on our website.. We are currently trying to find out which pages or parts of the site are affected by these issues and find solutions.
  4. Available Accessibility Options: We now implemented basic options for accessibility. On the top left of your screen, you should be able to see a PWD logo. Click this logo to adjust our website according to your need. You will have choices to adjust the font size, easier to read font style, contrast adjust, dark mode, greyscale, and links underline. We are working to improve or add more.
