Working toward a better spiked

Nakey's picture

Hi all Nakey here,

If you haven’t already noticed we are going through some changes. It’s good to know about changes before they happen, and it’s really important to know that everybody goes through it. No matter where you live or what music you listen to it will eventually happen. Now, no two people are exactly alike or experience this is the same way.

See, when a young person hits a certain age they start to notice things. Like hair in places it’s never been before or your voice may become deeper. For some extra muscle mass is put on with a widening of the shoulders. For others fatty tissue deposits may form around the hips and you may begin to develop breasts.

Whatever happens remember Danthemanjones is here to help and He’ll be taking us to second base in no time.

For now the SpikedNation hosting arrangements have been taken care of and all went smoothly. Some adjustments to the site have been implemented such as:

  • Comment widget
  • Navigation bar on all relevant pages
  • New styling
  • And he’s even working on a, wait for it, new mobile menu!

There will be more to come shortly so stay tuned.

Please report any bugs you find on the forum here: spikednationcom-support

Lastly props and many thanks to Danthemanjones for the great work he’s done both now and in the future.

 

Nakey out!

I'm a 30 year old male and my breasts have started getting bigger. Is this normal Danthemanjones? Is it because I'm at a certain age?

Also can we make it so that the "View" link in the Track section for comment upvotes, actually takes you to the comment instead of a shitty-statistics-no-one-gives-a-fuck-about screen?

So you're the guy making all the awesome changes to the site?  Fucking A man, keep up the good work.

BTW, Grothesk said I should ask you to unlock my ability to embed images and shit.  Is that do able?  I'm back working full time now so I'm only able to check in when I get home and would like to have the ability to use GIFs again.

I can embed pics in the comments but not in the videos descriptions.  Is that a different setting?

IT's all good, I figured out how to do it.  You can't copy and paste like the old days because, I think, it attempts to upload the image to the site.  As long as I embed and link to the off site image it works.

Facebook doesn't have embed abiltity on videos. BBC does but only for selected ones so it's not worth spending time on that.

We do have a feature in the works to embed tweets that retain their twtter look & functionality.

Chances are, if its not on YouTube its either strong nudity (Aka: Vimeo "Russian Photoshoots") or gore/violence (Aka: Liveleak Family Friendly Content)

I think those 3 sites should have us covered.

Hey guys, the site has been updated. Just a couple of small changes this week

- Front page mobile layout improved

- Side bar now hides on mobile - to see it just tilt your device to the side

- 2 of the content filters removed - nobody was clicking them & they cause visual glitch on mobile.

There still seems to e a glitch with the comments, but maybe my browser just jumps to the wrong comment box when pressing the reply button. in the recent Orville video I replied to napalm ok but before I tried to reply to grotesk and failed.

Would you think it's possible (easy) to create a "pop up editor"?

Soon it will be a month since the big Mayweather vs McGregor fight and Napalm still has not paid or even spoken to me about his loss. Same with a guy from work who bet me $100, he avoids me like the plague.

It might be possible but not easy. I'll look into it.

Update: It's actually quite difficult to hack into Drupal modules like that. I created a login popup which took over a day and still had outstanding issues so I'm reluctant to waste time on the comments unless more people report problems. I've not experienced a problem with commenting myself which makes it even harder to debug (you can't fix what you can't replicate).

Gothic, click "add content" on the right bar, choose "Video Submission", give it a title, then click the "Browse" link directly underneath, then add a description and click save at the bottom.

if you were on a pc, you would click add content on the right. then video submission. on the white pagee that opens you would put the youtube url. if you instead click Archive in the top right. that will show you all the vids that have been posted

There needs to be a "Participate in discussion" link for the current poll, as of now you have to click on "older polls" then into the current poll to post a comment.

Anyone else just getting a blank front page? I can access videos through "Posts", and likely search, but none of the buttons for Top Rated/Recent/etc are there. I've disabled AdBlock, since it's the add-on I use, but no change.

Running this on desktop, Win10, Chrome.

Can we get a fix on the posters font color? It used to be orange. 

Same thing happened in the"posts" page. The number of new posts used to be highlighted orange. Where has all the orange gone?
