Site Upgrade

Hi everyone,

As you might have noticed, the site was down for a few days due to some maintenance efforts from my side. I’d just like to give you more info on few areas of improvement, mainly related to the social interactions in the site. The following upgrades have been made:

  • Floating social bar added on the left panel.
  • The comments section on the right has been improved, now user’s avatars are visible, links added, etc.
  • The popular posts section has also been improved. You can now see the actual number of views per post.
  • Author box added at the bottom of every article.
  • “Subscribe by email” option added on the right panel
  • Comments notification system added (just below the comment box after every article)
  • Feedback section added on the main menu. In case you want to share some info, report a bug or simply get in touch. ;]
  • The whole platform, along with all the plugins, is now up to date.
  • Minor security improvements implemented (like captcha in the login form). In fact, the site doesn’t need any security, there is simply no sensitive information, only free programming knowledge. ;) But still, there are a lot of bots trying to penetrate it by making fake registration, and I’m sick of deleting them. ;]
  • Improved tag cloud. 
  • Improved image viewer. All the images will now open in a fancy jQuery-powered window. ;)
  • Page load time reduced.


And don’t forget – if you have any comments – use the new Feedback page ! ;)
