I was creating a website layout for a CMS. This particular software was very customisable, and without access to their source files, I had no idea how a client’s specific install operated in the non-standard details.
Me: I’ve got the board index layout complete, with placeholder images for the poster avatars. I don’t have the mod that makes avatars show up there on my test install, so I can’t put that code there.
Client: We ended up hard coding it in, because the mod we were using for that wasn’t very good, so don’t worry about it. We’ll take care of it.
I didn’t worry about it, and continued with the rest of it. Once it was done and I’d sent them their theme files, they messaged me again:
Client: Hey, how do I get the avatars to show up?
My bad, I assumed if you did it yourself, you knew how…
