This week I finally started the first moves to try improve the front part of AlltheInterweb to reflect recent changes to the Interweb.
These changes will appear when they appear, and made to try make this website more simple and tidier.
The existing front end was first unleashed at some point in 2017 after making the switch from my favoured Netobjects Fusion to Mobirise web design software, and incorporated links to parts of AlltheInterweb that have recently had to be discontinued.
The new version of the website will still use Mobirise, just to a lesser extent, in order to make more use of this WordPress part of the website you’re on now.
I only really switched to Mobirise because Google had started nagging about using Responsive Web Design. Continue reading “AlltheInterweb Update In The Works”
One of the main things I have been meaning to include as part of the blog is an attempt at doing regular reviews of other people’s websites as part of AlltheInterweb‘s core mission to help you find all the interweb sites you’ll ever need.
However there hasn’t been much of a reason to motivate me into making that a priority.
That seems to have changed in the past month or so after 2 websites I was starting to like managed to p*ss me off by giving me a reminder why the moderator teams on other people’s websites never really inspire me with confidence that they’ve got a clue what they’re doing and motivate me to try to provide more sensible alternatives as best I can with my currently limited resources.
Watch this space for the reviews
The section of AlltheInterweb known as AlltheInterweb Pixels has been discontinued, this being an attempt at a Pixel Advertising platform.
It has been put out of use for two reasons:
- The script that made it work, called GPix is old and doesn’t appear to work under PHP 7
- No f****r was using the damn thing anyway.
Other options for offering direct advertising on AlltheInterweb are under consideration for the future in addition to the use of adverts from Google AdSense and Amazon Associates.
Having being screwed for most of the year due to issues with switching to PHP 7 (like many parts of the stuff on the web hosting I use), since early morning on Monday 14th October 2019 repairs have been underway to once again try get AlltheInterweb Answers functional again.
AlltheInterweb Answers is an effort by this AlltheInterweb website you’re looking at to have a go at creating a Q&A website similar to Yahoo Answers or Quora, using a free to download PHP script and available add-ons.
Repairs include upgrading the script from version 1.7.4 to 1.8.3, which apparently likes newer versions of PHP better than the one that was in use. It appears to have done the trick for the worst of the problems, and I can access the admin bits of the site again.
Continuing repairs are on-going by the removal of a s**t-load of spam posts, mostly from the IP Address ranges:
The site will become active again when I’ve finished tweaking, and making sure everything works.
