Great Job! i like the color scheme and layout. Very Impressive for a first project. Keep up the great work!

A few things I noticed.

  1. When you create an account, it doesn’t direct you to login or alert your setup complete.
  2. The three line menu. I usually prefer the menu collapsing when you click anywhere on the screen, instead of needing to click the same three lines. Same with uploading an Image, clicking the background could exit that page instead of needing to click the X.
  3. If you are not logged in, but click profile. It gives you an Access Denied page, it would be cool to direct them to signup or login instead.
  4. Adding username and description to your profile would be cool, if you are building it out more.
