If you are seeing this, you’re in the right place now. This is the new Sci-Fi Storm…all new look, some new features. I may still make adjustments so things may fluctuate. Read the rest of this article for things you should know – but the first thing you should do is register your logins again!!!
As I mentioned before, the new site is based on WordPress and the Pixel theme (although I have been customizing a number of things with it – I just like the background 🙂 ). When I get more familiar with themes I may custom-design my own at some point.
I don’t seem to be able to stuff quite as much into the design as I was able to with Slashcode, so I’m having to come to terms with that. I’d like to add some new features as well, which will require some time while I get used to programming around WordPress (and seeing how updates break things).
One feature I’d like to add is some form of Event Calendar that would allow entering things like premiere dates, etc. The one I tried doesn’t work with the latest code though, so I’m still working on that.
One I’ve grown comfortable with this, I may look for more regular contributions from people, as I will be able to delegate Author rights. I’m hoping the site becomes more active that way.
Frankly, its been just over 9 years, and we’ve gotten nowhere. Mostly because of the old code, but also because of lack of time on my part. Over that period of time, the site should have either become a lot more than it is, or just gone away. I really don’t want it to go away, but it needs to be something more than just news reposts and occasional reviews. I’d like to add a LOT more, like some social aspects, perhaps even games – like a SF-themed Facebook even, although I don’t know if it will ever get there.
And not that income from the site was EVER that much, but it has been dwindling away. If you are an Amazon shopper, bookmark this [aml] link. You’ll pay the same prices, but we get a commission. Also, be sure to check out the ads on our site.
If you’ve got ideas (or wordpress plugins I should check out), let me know!
