: New menu structure
As you can see I was getting a bit tired of the old menu structure, the menu's were annoying on a mobile device and some became so long that my site re-sized to a height to accommodate the menu while the content ended like 400 pixels higher in some cases. The last thing was of course just me being a prick and wanting to have stuff perfect. So, while still in place the top menu doesn't expand anymore (except the home button for the and about / contact pages which no-one ever uses), this has become the main navigation menu which only contains links to the different content sections. Each...
: Rate
Yesterday I implemented the Rate module in Drupal 7 on this website. It is now possible to give a thumbs up or down for my blog, drawings and photo galleries. I have my doubts if people actually will use it, but hey, because we can we implement it This module will give a percentage of how many people liked or disliked something, when no one has voted yet it will default be 50% like and 50% dislike. If one person likes something it will be 100%/0%, two likes and one dislike will result in 66%/33%, etc... For the photo galleries the voting will be for the whole gallery and not the individual...
: Changes on this site
Last few days I have changed some things on this website, most noticeable the block with latest content on the front page. I also changed some other things: URL changes Now http://valheru.org also directs to this site. Of course http://www.valheru.org will also still work. The old landing page is still available as default site for the other domains listed here (not really interesting): http://moredhel.org and *.moredhel.org http://eledhel.org and *.eledhel.org http://glamredhel.org and *.glamredhel.org http://taredhel.org and *.taredhel.org http://sjap.org and *.sjap.org And of course Share...
: Server Bashing
This morning and part of the afternoon some idiots have been trying to hack my website. They did this via brute force attacks on the node/add paths of my site in hopes to get past the login. Of course this didn't work. However, what did happen was that they didn't just bashed my site, nope, they bashed it so fast and obviously that the load on the shared hosting servers climbed to 8. Of course these morons didn't try to be subtle so soon enough alarms were triggered with the hosting company who in turn just restarted apache and mysql and banned the ips of the idiots trying to bash my site. So...
: Spam & Mollom
Due to the amount of spam comments I got in my drawings and blog sections, some time ago I implemented captcha support on this website. After a while it seemed that my captcha's got broken and I still got spam comments on many posts. So I tried several captcha systems, ReCaptcha, MathCaptcha and several others. Unfortunately none of these did the trick. I started moderating the comments, this kept the spam from showing up but now I had to deal with this on a daily basis. Two days ago there was a very annoying spam run which posted 40 comments within one minute and I got really annoyed with it...
