I have now, in the words of Graham Goring, raised the number of places you can make a git of yourself on the internet by one.
Forums are now open at https://viridiangames.com/forums. Come! Stay! Talk about my non-existent games!
I used Vanilla forums since PHPBB is still apparently the easiest thing to hack on the internet. I don’t like the layout or color scheme, but those can always be changed later.
Ah! Speaking of changes, I’d been wondering for about the last two weeks why Google Analytics was claiming this site got no hits. I then realized that I changed the site’s theme, and the analytics code is embedded in the footer.php file of the theme…if you install it yourself.
So I didn’t. This time I used the Google Analytics plugin for WordPress. This should give me the data I want while allowing me to switch to any theme I desire (and I will be changing the theme, probably to match whatever I come up with for viridiangames.com).
Don’t know about PHPBBs hackability, but at least SMF that I use gets more spam than I care for. I ended up disabling new user registration, as I got bored deleting new spambots and their threads every day.. and this was with ReCAPTCHA and everything.
Just tried to leave a response to your “Frist Psot!” entry on the forums, and either:
(a) I’m an idiot
(b) something is wonky in the ‘Sign Up’ process, to where it stalls at a screen stating I need reCaptcha.
I’m strongly leaning towards (a) on this. Could you please explain the process? I signed up through my Google account, generated a public/private pair for http://www.viridiangames.com, and then tried to create a user account on your forum. Um, after selecting username & password, what then?
Nope, not your fault. I wasn’t aware that the default basic login requires access to reCAPTCHA, which I had to sign up for. If you try to create an account now, you should be able to.
Sorry about that.
