Topic: [Update] ZanthriaReborn and Fx Live!
Just released v0.5 of my website.
It is using WordPress as a simple front end.
I am using a modified version of the Benevolence template.
The front page uses "extern.php" and the News Generator plugin to get information.
It is using punBB 1.2.2 with a template I made called "Bauglir".
Bauglir means "The Constrainer" and I thought it appropriate since I have those huge black bars constraining the forum.
It's very smooth, clean, and colorless - but I like it that way.
Check it out and tell me what you think!
I've recently relaunched the site.
I didn't want to be a putz and start a whole new topic, so I just dredged up my old topic.
Well, the new site has changed from my old personal blog and forums to a development blog for my various projects with a little bit of personal blog mixed in. I use sBLOG as the main blogging system, with punBB as the general discussion area and support forums.
I've heavily modified the original punBB theme (cellfuse) that I was using to fit the theme I designed for sBLOG (Deep Breath which is a modification of my other theme Breath).
I also use it as the homepage for my major project - Fx Live!
Fx Live! is a version of the popular Firefox web-browser that can be run off of a CD on certain OSs (Win 2000/NT/XP). Currently cannot be run on Win 95/98, but hope to fix that soon with batch-file wrapping utility. Firefox runs directly from the CD, only copying some temporary files to a 'temp' directory - which are then deleted at the end of the browser session. This allows you to run it on systems that do not allow programs to be installed (such as restricted IT systems or school networks).
The original idea was put into action by John Haller which was in turn inspired by his own Portable Firefox version designed to run off of USB drives. However, I have extensivly modified it in order to provide ease of use and an overall more enjoyable user experience.
I have attained this by providing an autorun system, tutorial boot-page, tweaks to decrease program's usage of system resources, and by installing some Extensions that I believe improve the general browsing experience of most users without hindering any of them.
Anywho - glad to still have punBB behind me for this long.
