So it’s been a rocky week, I’m sure everyone has seen the database errors etc.
Fairy: Keep on F5 till you get in. I had checked and there is nothing we can do till the backend solves it or we change hosting again.
This morning the site switched from the shared plan to a cloud plan, I’ve been told that the cloud plan should be able to handle us, so hopefully the database errors are gone now.
The follower list from the old site has been moved over to this one now.
I tried adding a follow button… but it’s pointing to the old site instead of this one.
Follow Button Creation
If you put raisingthedead.ninja into it, you’ll notice the old site’s address wartdf.wordpress.com appear in the code and I’m not sure how to fix it yet. The email subscribers thing down the side bar is working however.
I haven’t figured out if there is a way to auto login to the site yet either. The wordpress bar isn’t at the top of the site by default, so some authors probably haven’t worked out how to post their chapters yet. We currently have to use http://www.raisingthedead.ninja/wp-login.php to login. There’s probably a way to do it, but this is all new to me. I’ll shake some people & see if some chapters fall out soon.
The next main feature I want to add is a auto updating TOC. If anyone has experience with this then help would be appreciated. I haven’t started testing addons yet to see if there is one that works, but if you have some ideas it should automatically add new posts to a TOC, probably based on post name or tags, so all posts named “Slave Harem” or tagged “Slave Harem” would automatically be added to the “Slave Harem” ToC.
I also want auto previous and next buttons, though that seems like something that would be part of an auto ToC addon.
The next feature will be replacing the “related posts” thing that you see at the bottom of posts with “recent posts from other blogs”. I’m aiming for Raising the Dead to have a second site soon that we can use for blogging about anything we want, while keeping this main site for specifically WN’s. A way to cross advertise the two sites with each other would be most useful.
The new site will allow user submitted content. I need a way to add a form to it that anyone can click on and write a post. The posts will then wait in a queue for me to approve them before they appear on the site.
Most importantly, Din and TSO are still dead, with Master of Monster not doing well. We need translators for those.
