Inherited Will, The Destiny of the Age, and The Dreams of the People. As long as people continue to pursue the meaning of Freedom, these things will never cease to be!

It is here it's finally here!

it is here!

After a couple of months working on it, the new site is up and running!  Its been a lot of fun building it too!

So... whats new or different from the old site?  well, a lot of stuff is the same as the old site but its done in a very different way so its old new stuff 😆

Starting with the framework, I went with fatfree framework which has a lot of cool and ready to use stuff and it allow me great freedom regarding file structure and that kind of stuff.

This site has always been a weird mix between a blog and a forum and I kinda like it that way so I build the new one to act the same way, perhaps even more mixed since I can now freely choose what to add and how. A good way to describe the change would be: the old site was a forum masquerading as blog, the new site is a blog masquerading as a forum.

I took special care and emphasis on building a blog that complies to every single google complain about structured data, each blog entry has no errors and I'm quite happy about that.

Got a new WYSIWYG editor, summer note, which is quite cool and has some built in features I would like to eventually use.

The old site got a few cron and auto post features, I added those too, this time with a real cron job.

Quote selected text, reason for editing, gravatar, tags, guest posting. All of those are included. 

A very raw permission system is also included.  Heck, I even built a rather nice image header rotator, something I always wanted to do. For those who wonder, it changes the image every 5 days.

I'm using bootstrap which means the site is responsive by default.

Its been lots and lots of fun building it, to the point where I spent a couple of nights coding it, non-stop, I honestly haven't felt this excitement in years, felt good. Really good.
Now, the site isn't remotely finished, nope. There's still some features completely broken, some are half made and some I haven't even tried them yet 😜 but I don't care! I haz a neu websitez!1!!eleventeen!!!one!uno!!

Turns out HTML Purifier removes all structured data from images which is actually annoying, I spent a few hours adding a nice plugin to summernote to automatically add the needed metatags and now they get removed...

I wanted to add a new HTML definition list to HTML Purifier but so far no luck, no matter what I try or how I do it. Its starting to get annoying.
