I found a new plugin for thesh17.com today. It’s called Random Redirect, and basically just lets me redirect ?random to a random post on thesh17.com.
The same thing could be done with .htaccess and some php coding, but laziness wins.
I changed the “Comic” link in the top navigation to “Random” and it’s going to load Random Posts now. There’s also a link in the side bar that says “Stumble TheSh17.com”
I replaced COMIC with RANDOM
If we ever get a comic set up, I’ll change the link back and do something else. It wasn’t going anywhere before though.
I haven’t posted a maintenance update since December it looks like. I don’t know what all I’ve changed before today, but here is what I did today:
- Updated Akismet to 2.1.6
- Akismet’s blocked over 5,500 spam comments and counting.
- Updated Google’s Sitemap Generator to 220.127.116.11
- Updated Simple Tags to 1.5.6
- Deleted several spam user accounts. I have no idea why they keep getting created so often, they aren’t leaving comments or spam anywhere.
- Added Feedburner site tracking code into posts
- Removed the feedburner redirection link from the titles in the rss feed
- Changed the feedburner location to http://feeds.thesh17.com/TheSh17
- Our #1 referring search term is “bioshock”
- Fixed a few bugs with the website loading
TheSh17 dot com and Zombiebait are both in need of some work. Anyone willing to help out? Send an email to johntash [at] gmail.com or leave a comment here.
I’ve been working on The Sh17′s server for the last few hours, and decided I’d try to get our old design working again. I’ve ironed out most of the bugs that were keeping it from working at all with wordpress. Now the main problem IE hates me. Everything looks fine in Firefox, but IE displays the header wrong.
I haven’t gotten around to fixing it just yet but I’m trying to decide which design I like better.
The Original TheSh17 theme?
The pre-made theme that we’re currently using?
More than likely I’ll end up making the original design prettier to match up to the new one, or try to incorporate the logo into the current design.
Alright, so I had a text message from Kanchi last night saying the site was fucked up. I kinda ignored it because I had better things to do (like sleep.)
Turns out it really was screwed up. I checked the stats for yesterday and at a certain point in the day it dropped from hundreds of visits an hour to almost none :\
I enabled Short-URLS for mediawiki on The Sh17′s Private Project Wiki, but accidentally messed up the .htaccess file at the root of the site. It was redirecting almost all traffic (that wasn’t a real file) to the wiki for it to handle. So if you visited thesh17 dot com in the evening yesterday, you probably got some kind of authentication error. Sorry about that but everything should be fixed now.
Actually. Everythings half okay. You guys shouldn’t notice anything though. Leave a comment if you have any problems!
- Installed the WP-Super-Cache plugin for WordPress. It’s a replacement for WP-Cache that comes with WordPress. It’s supposedly a lot faster and so far seems like a good alternative especially since it supports gzip.
- Changed the sitemaps.xml file around a little bit. It no longer includes any Category or Archives type pages; Only actual posts and static pages. This should stop google (and other search engines) from sending people to a category page instead of straight to the post they were looking for.
- I did alot of cleaning of code and such that you people won’t notice, but it’s there anyway. Hopefully it’ll speed things up a little bit.
Top 5 Posts on www.thesh17.com according to traffic:
- 40,000 Blowjobs from Belgium
I’m too sure why this one is still getting a lot of hits. I think its from people searching google for “Blowjob“. Sick bastards
- Funny Motivational Posters
We actually get more traffic from google for the term “Funny Motivational Posters” than from stumbleupon
- 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0
Everybody just wants to break the law I guess.
- Guitar Hero 3 Details and Song List
Another one mostly from google search.
- I’mah firein’ up mah ion cannon.
You’ll have to ask Kanchi why this is so popular. CnC3 has been how for how long?
We’re also starting a few other projects. One of those being a webbased MMORPG. More information will be posted when it becomes available.
Not much to write this time.
WordPress has been updated to Version 2.3.1.
There was quite a few bugs fixed, but among them were:
- Tagging support for Windows Live Writer
Fixes for a login bug that affected those with a Blog Address different than
their WordPress Address
Faster taxonomy database queries, especially tag intersection queries
Link importer fixes
Oh and www.thesh17.com was moved to a new server recently. It really is a lot quicker now, so if you notice any problems. Post a comment here and let me know.
