I’m trying out the Disqus comment system, not sure if it’s something I wanna go with, but I thought I’d give it a try for a little bit. If you experience any issues or have any objections to it just give me a shout in a comment or directly at…
I’ve updated the Contact, Links, About & Releases (list) pages to match the current theme and make them a little bit cleaner. More to come..
I thought it was time for an update again, this is basically the twenty eleven theme that comes with wordpress, just some customization here and there to get it looking the way I want. So there will probably be a few things that don’t work properly, but I’m on it and it will be sorted shortly. Also there are some more categories & custom things that need to be fixed.. it shouldn’t be long though. But if you find anything that’s not working properly feel free to let me know.
As you can see I’m updating the site a little, most things should be functional, but it’s a work in progress so some things will most likely be broken. Not even sure I want to go with this theme to be honest, but it’ll stay for now. Some menu changes as well, Releases is now under About and I removed the Video page for now. I’ll probably make some additional changes in the days to come.
Just letting y’all know.
I just Installed the Super Cache plugin for WordPress, last time I did it caused some weirdness on the site, so I’m just giving a heads up. I have tried it out and checked everything I could think of (which usually amounts to, not everything), so if there’s something fishy going on just let me know and I’ll either uninstall it or try to fix whatever it is that’s causing the problems. Last time around it was mainly the tunes in the download section that didn’t work for some reason, and I think I’ve fixed that.. but you never know.
Hope y’all had a good weekend.. till next time!
Though I’d let y’all know about a couple of issues with the site that I’ve come across.
Firstly it seems that the open source browser Chromium, that is the one that Google Chrome is built on, don’t render the site properly. There’s some css issues, at least on the latest builds. I’m not sure, but it might apply to Chrome as well. Site works fine in Internet Explorer and Firefox though. Just a heads up.
Secondly, the buy buttons in the Soundcloud player should not be there, I can’t remove them for some reason, but if you click them you’ll just get an error. I’ve reported the issue to the Soundcloud staff, so hopefully I’ll get a response shortly.
The buy button issue was promptly fixed, so all is good on that front. Chromium still mess up the css tho, but not much I can do about that.
Been doing some behind the scenes optimizing on the site today (May 31) and yesterday to decrease load times and make everything a bit snappier. I was finally able to after my host did some much needed upgrading, which made everything work proper and the site feel responsive for the first time in ages. I hope it lasts, if it does they might just have saved a customer.
Finally got round to update the About Page that I talked about in a previous post. I split it up into three parts, about the site, about me as a musician & last a more personal, abstract one about me as man. It’s not entirely finished, but finished enough. I’ll keep adding to it when I have the time.
Just a quick update.
I’m trying to update sowl.org a little, changing the theme (and in the process learning some css/php) and making it cleaner all over. It’s a work in progress tho, so I’ll fix things as I go along, removing some things and adding others. I’ll also start posting more, so instead of waiting for something “important” to post I’ll just throw up things as they come along, important or not.
I’m also gonna switch host, once this year expires (June I think), to a better one.. site is soooo slow sometimes, feels like being on dial-up once again and I don’t have the patience for it. And I’m probably gonna register a couple more domains as well, so site might go through another transformation later on, I might keep it as is tho and fire up another one all together, we’ll see what the future brings!
