Changes coming up, maybe

Not big ones, just trying to tie in some social media elements for easier access. Things may go a bit nutty at times, but I’m working on it!


1) I have switched the comment system over to Jetpack Comments system so visitors can now login to their Facebook, Twitter and accounts to comment. Convenient eh?

2) There’s now a Facebook page for Apathetic Moon! I made it for social media integration purposes, but feel free to drop in and chat with me~

Look out for more changes~

Some news on my end

It’s been a while since I update this blog, so I’m here with some little news and updates.

1) On 19th May 2012, this blog had a whooping 11,000 views because of a certain title related event in Dragon Nest SEA that brought crazy amount of traffic to my Collection Titles guide. That was kinda crazy and unexpected, haha!

2) Cherry Credits recently upgrade their forum software (which’s a damn good thing because they had a rampant spam problem) so some of the links in my post to topics in their forum are broken. I have fixed those I spotted, but if you spot any, please let me know. Thank you~

3) I’m playing Diablo 3, like half of the gaming world. But I’m also crazy about fishing in Dragon Nest’s newly introduced farming system, although I don’t quite know how to profit from farming yet.

I think that’s about it.

I have no idea what happened…

But apparently all my posts and everything belonging in the post database table had disappeared on the 11th of September (ha-freaking-ha).

Thank goodness I have scheduled backup and managed to restore all the posts, up until the latest one made in August (gosh, I neglected this blog for so long). I still am completely clueless about what happened. I don’t know if it’s foul-play or just corruption on the database’s end but I got quite a shock to find a completely empty blog and the fact that it’s been like this for a week or so now.

I’m just thankful it can be fixed easily. Schedule backups for teh win!

Return of the Captcha

Captcha is back after my brief test for two days and the results is an average of 40 spams per day. I had Akismet and a honeypot type anti-spam, but alas, a few dozen spams still managed to slip through. So, sorry for the ugly, but it seems I need a Captcha.

Using Post Format for this blog

I’ve got the coding part of implementing Post Format into the theme done, so it’s more or less the design part now. Instead of having a huge If Else chunk in the middle of many templates, I decided to use the method introduced in Even Smarter Post Formats.

I made a lot of changes to Color Paper, so many that I wonder how I’m going to revert some of those changes for if I want to release. For my website, I didn’t want to have the Post Format icons change color along with the style switcher, although I managed to make it work.

Working on Post Format o2

I think I got Post Format working, somewhat, but I’m not quite done twitching with the theme yet. Besides, the Featured Post area in the index page is kind of difficult to style for, because of the different space requirements for the formats. Oh well, I’ll work on it some more tomorrow. And modifying the single templates too, gotta remember that.

Some new stuff added

Most of the additions have to do with comments. The most prominent is the CAPTCHA, because I have a rather rampant spam problem. Another is that comments posted will not need approval before they show up and visitors’ comments can be edited within a certain period of time.

Another thing, which is kind of really odd bug.
