Twitter Feed

Alright then, this might make some of y’all happy. If you notice to the right, I have a twitter feed. No joke, I do have a twitter account now. I don’t plan to use it terribly often, but for quick things, it’ll get the job done. You are welcome to follow if you wish, there is no real need, but the choice is yours. I plam to use it for both here and my YouTube account unless it gets wildly popular somehow… in which case I’ll just open a separate account for that and go from there.

Before you ask, no I haven’t received any updates regarding the server move. I will make a post regarding that, so don’t worry.

SMF and WP Bridged!

Looked around, looked some more.. did a little reading, and finally got the two bridged together.

Still a few bugs here and there, but for now, its working alright. Y’all can still comment anonymously if you wish, but if you want to be logged in when commenting, you’ll need an account via the forum, and it’ll be created for WordPress. You login through the forum to be logged into the account on WordPress. So far its working pretty well.

I’ll keep updated if needed.

Tapatalk and the Forum

For you owners of a smartphone and Tapatalk, fear not, I’ve installed a mod that integrates the app and the forum together so you can use your favorite forum app to browse our forum.

I was looking around for some useful mods, and happened to find this, so it is about time I got updated with the times, don’t y’all think so?

Hm, what else… Oh right.. social networking.. I’m debating to be honest. I don’t use it, nor will I enable its default features in the theme since well.. they serve no purpose to me. But, I might add separate mods for any user who does wish to utilize them to an extent, but for the moment, may have to wait for a while as I don’t have FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter, etc…

Forum Upgrade

Long overdue, but a forum upgrade was needed, and a good wipe as well…

We’re now running SMF 2, and I’ve got a few kinks left to kick out and such. The logo is one thing I will be changing, don’t worry.. just something I gotta make first beforehand. If some of the text is hard to read for some of the viewers, let me know and I’ll see about changing them. Be specific though, or else I won’t be able to find the right value that needs to be changed in the CSS.

Anyway, feel free to register on the forum, have fun, and enjoy the place. That’s what we’re all about.

Statistics Page

‘Bout time ain’t it? I finally got a stats service running along with a site to go with it, so its all purrdy. Yes, purrdy, not pretty… purrdy. Texan in me. =P

Ok, that aside.. you can follow the Stats link on the right side (making an iframe would be too much of a hassle on a WordPress page, trust me), and while the post is here, y’all can use this link: ShadowHime Stats. Have fun, and expect a few changes soon when I update the CSS info to reflect ShadowHime colors… and change a few images.

Server Info Updated

Alright then, the Information page has been updated to include the new server info. The is set to a round robin, so you may get either server, while the other one,, will get you to the new one.

On a side-note, SSL is supported on both servers. I think I forgot to update something in the tutorials area or something, so I’ll fix that when I get a free moment.

Before anyone asks me, no, I have no intentions of supporting IPv6 at this time. Its still a pretty new tech (kinda.. its been around for some time over in Europe), but since we’re US-based, there are barely any IPv6 providers and such. None of the servers are compiled for IPv6 support at this time. If it becomes widely popular, maybe then I’ll reconsider on recompiling the servers for the support.
