Site Fixes & Updates - 2018

Postby John » Thu May 10, 2018 5:01 pm

I've got a few weeks more or less free so I want to try and spend a little time cleaning some things up on here. My plans seem to change quite often :? so I'm just going take things one piece at a time.

10th May 2018:

-New user registrations enabled.
-reCAPTCHA updated from v1 to v2.
-E-Mail/Contact Page issue resolved.
-Old site backups located for downloads restoration.

Hey, thanks for keeping us up and running for all these years.

We still need to convince whoever that KA should be put on Steam or GoG

-reCAPTCHA v2 obviously not quite perfect, small spammer invasion got through so added low tech challenge question during registration.

Happy to keep the site up :) Regarding a re-release, from what I remember that could be complicated.... it's not totally impossible though.

Just basic housekeeping today, still trying to understand some layout issues. Also checked out another hosting package that I might move over to, not sure yet.

I got stuck on some layout issues on the download page that are pretty insignificant but they are bugging me, the good news is some of this might apply to layout issues on the knowledgebase mod.

Download page template issue resolved and I'm slowly starting to populate it. It seems that spam bots are being held off for the moment but I'm keeping a close eye on things, lets see how long this lasts :)
