Changelog

The Blog Changelog page is designed to quickly give you an overview of what changes I’ve done since the initial release back in late 2017. I think transparency is an important factor these days and I want to give everyone the opportunity to see what is going on behind the scenes.

ToDO

  1. Remove all ads even for free users (maybe it’s considered)
  2. Install several SEO related plugins to improve the global page rank
  3. New Theme for Desktop/Mobile (work on it has already began)
  4. Add better graphics in all social media related accounts and add more details, description,…
  5. New Blog graphics, emotes and an improved comment section
  6. Finish the old GitHub projects from 2017 (high-prio)
  7. Get some partner sites, to get more references to this page here and more viewers and more interaction since the comment section is (sadly) pretty empty
  8. Get some more supporters in order to survive (high-prio)
  9. Try to keep an eye and focus on some more hardware based tutorials
  10. Integrate new share/like buttons to reduce some connections which are done by WordPress (low-prio)
  11. Make the screenshots clickable/zoomable.
  12. Better Archive and search results and integrate some filters + regular expression option (high-prio)
  13. Automate the ‘unlocking’ process in case someone donated something, so that he/she can immediately enjoy the benefits. Currently it is done manually and takes some time.
  14. 5 quality articles maximum per day and maybe 1-2 short news .. yeah that’s it … sounds not much but it is! (high-prio)
  15. Everything people reporting …. (mid-prio)
