Just updating on the post below.
I have added SSL Certificates (As recommended by some here)
Moved to a VPS (As recommended by some here)
Removed dead links from Vainglory and Blog Roll (As recommended by some here)
We have a staging site of what we would like to move to HERE
We listened to what was said last time and kept things such as the comment counter on posts and decreased the margin on the mobile comments section. Each post should display on the homepage fully unless its over 1000 words and then it will require “read more” to be clicked.
I do understand that the commenting system is a little different (we can enable nested posts too). If the commenting system is not right or changes need to be made i’m happy to address them. (Including moving back to the default system).
The new commenting system has:
-Direct reply to comments
-Up and down votes (does not affect order shown)
-User Following – This allows you to be notified when a user comments on a post even if you haven’t engaged with the post yet
-See who commented on what (this only applies inside Tim Worstall and nothing like Disqus)
I quite like the changes but as always i’m willing to put it to the users.
The current template used was last updated in 2012 and technology has moved on massively and does create some security issues for us (not necessarily the end user). Were currently getting somewhere in the region of 25,000 brute force attempts daily because of unpatched security holes. We can block the IP’s but it’s like whack-a-mole. We need to move to an updated system but we want to make sure its right, first.
(PS. I did honestly try to make it green again but my interior design skills aren’t the best…)
As i have said previously the theme used on TW is out of date and full of holes. We also need to add things like an SSL certificate os makes sense to do it all together.
You can check out the new site: here
Its just on a temporary server for the moment. Take a look around and let me know any suggestions, changes and all that.
