Title: New site is LAUNCHED!
Post by: Shirow on June 14, 2010, 03:59:46 PM
OK, I've finally got the baseline of the new site completed and it is launched. New theme for the forum will come at some point but you'll have to suck it up for now.

I am sure someone will find a bug.. if you do, please report it to me.

The site is far from 'finished' in the sense that I am still 100% open to modifying/adding features/making changes/whatever - but I think it is usable and it's a lot easier for me to work on at this point!

So.. enjoy it (I hope) - let me know if you have complaints!

Note to paranoid people like me: If the new navigation doesn't work, remember to enable JavaScript for the domain...

      .     <-bug

~how do I go from (here) 'Community' back to http://digitalgunfire.com/index.php
 or 'Listen' link without using <Arrows or my 'Bookmark'? It's no biggie, I just like being lazy...

Not sure what you mean.. the 'Listen' link takes you back to the main page

I think he means that you can't get back to the new site homepage from the forum without going through a bookmark or hitting the back button.

Or, we haven't found it yet. Are we just inept?

Oh, yeah, I need to figure out a way to re-integrate navigation into the forum. I will add something soon.

Being at school, bored of playing Sudoku, I check here, and I was surprised.
The site looks nice.

Awesome. My only question was addressed above. And i too like clicking on the DG symbol to go back to the home page. Though i must admit, i probably never would have figured it out without reading this.

Here's to another new, successful version of DG...

Cheers!

well, first, my laptop is all updated, I even updated to adobe 10.. but when i click on the link for the adobe, it just says "error on page" at the bottom of the page.. before and after i updated. and with the other players, it either take me to my players and then tells me that it can not play it or with the itunes it says that it can not connect to the web page. theonly other way of listening to DC, is to stay at my house on secondlife, I usally have DC playing all the time when I'm on SL.. I don't like other people's idea of music, or I have DC playing while i'm on our live web A/V show, which I play for people and tell them about DC..all 12,000 of our fans in 49 major countries.

I havent been there for a while, so I was a bit surprised.. And now I claim the same I claimed before:

This site with all its features is not only awesome (as creators abilities) but it also has a soul - It was created with DGs, fans and all of opinions came in "construction site".. Everyone, who posts his opinion or reports a bug has assisted...

This is the fact which makes DGF site (both old and new) different and so marvelous for me..

Bravo, Shirow.. Im thinking of it will be enough if I raise your carma..

Sarah,

Not sure which Adobe link you are talking about.. there is no Flash button to connect to the stream. To tune in, go to the 'Listen' page and use the links under the 'Tune In' header - shouldn't launch any Flash/Adobe applications.

If that doesn't work, run WinAMP (www.winamp.com), press CTRL+L and type in http://radio1-se.digitalgunfire.com:8000

That will allow you to connect manually.

Hope that helps!

well, I did do what trickhatt said about flashing my eyes.. I got my neighbor to install a VLC player, now it works.. giggles, she also gave me other things too.. I also have a date with her friday  : ). the player that I always used here was the www. player, but that is the one that keeps giving me the error on the page at the bottom corner.. I really do love the music that DG playes and I have it playing 24/7 everywhere, even at the 5 stores that I run on SL and in 3 of my castles there.. I have my friends over in Irack playing it on their base and blasting it to the enemy, some of them even likes it ... I have them fighting for freedom of music and for my pretty eyes, giggles..

Ahhh, OK - that would explain the Adobe Flash!

Glad to hear you got it working though - and congratulations on your date ;)

A couple of suggestions:

1. On an iphone, the menu is wrapped, so one of the items is displayed like "Community Database"

2. For the music database, having a way to display the highest and lowest rated albums would be nice
   (or all albums, ordered by rating)
Title: Re: New site is LAUNCHED!
Post by: Shirow on July 20, 2010, 05:04:58 AM
I have been meaning to make a mobile version of the site (although, iPhone users probably wouldn't want to use a mobile version anyway..) - I'll see what I can do to fix that.

The music DB thing.. albums themselves don't really have a rating anymore other than the aggregate of their songs but I will think about it and see if there's a good way to display it.
