Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain

Posted by David, 23 February 2013 - - - - - - · 6,367 views

It's been a long time since I've bothered to document any changes/updates that have either been completed or are in the works. Mainly because no one ever reads/responds to these blogs.

Since I miss the days of 2-3 new, original blog posts a week, I figured that I may as well take the plunge and post a quick one of my own.

Remember the days w...


The Most Popular Articles of ES - Jan '13

Posted by David, 21 January 2013 - - - - - - · 619 views

Since statistics are always interesting, I figured I'd post the following table highlighting the most popular articles on Elder Souls. I was going to sort them ALL by author and tally the views to create the biggest pissing-contest cluster-fuck possible. Sadly I lack any easy way to do this and am already procrastinating work, so I'll just do the top 12 (...


Ongoing Home Page Updates

Posted by David, 14 October 2012 - - - - - - · 1,063 views

It's been awhile since I've worked on the site, so after having finished up the first round of midterm exams last week I figured I could donate a decent amount of time to it this weekend. Fortunately I've gotten a few things done!

Home Page Updates
Most of you probably haven't noticed the new, less-cluttered look for categories and article blocks. I was...


New Home Page

Posted by David, 24 August 2012 - - - - - - · 1,594 views

Those of you who navigate to ElderSouls.com instead of having the forums bookmarked have probably noticed that we have a new home page installed at http://eldersouls.com/. I am MUCH happier with this new layout (although it is a ways from being finished), primarily because the width is fixed. Fixed width layouts allow...


Gallery and Blogs Updated

Posted by David, 22 August 2012 - - - - - - · 1,728 views

The Gallery and Blog applications have both been updated. Gallery had a rather massive overhaul and as a result there are some issues with the dark skin I'm aware of (though they're just visual and don't affect usability), so if you want to check out what it should/will look like use the Light skin. Hopefully I'll fix whatever issues there...


Content Updates and Things I've Learned

Home Page

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I've recently begun turning what was previously our articles/content database into our new home page. You can see its current state by clicking here.

My main goal is going to be to ultimately set that as our overall home page so that...

New Features and Updates

Revised Content Page
Our old "Guides" page has really been showing its age for a long time, and I've been meaning to re-code it for months now. I've finally gotten around to...

User Feedback Poll

Sappy Explanation
Here at ElderSouls.com we care about you, the user. This is a fan site with user generated content, after all, and we wouldn't be going very far without any of you. That's precisely why we're having a feedback poll on this blog...


Success on the Internet: Article & Guide Popularity

Posted by David, 14 May 2012 - - - - - - · 5,115 views

As the site ages and becomes more established, trends in user activity begin to become more apparent. Certain content can be highlighted as exceptional or below par based on hits and user involvement. So far, 11 of the guides submitted by our community have been published to the beta version of our main page.

The software that runs our guide and article...
