The cat is out of the bag!
I present to you, the official 2015 relaunch of the SWDB. We have moved the SWDB to a hosting infrastructure that should be very stable (once we gather more donations I can increase its capacity), and I planned to give it another overhaul.
- I relaunched the SWDB with a new look and feel. It is a lot faster, works on different screens (including mobile devices), and it is much nicer to read.
- YouTube extension is re-enabled, however you need to change all embed codes from
<youtube>cUMENsOzcbQ</youtube>(grab that combination from a URL of any youtube video)
- The new layout (based on a skin system called “Foreground”) requires us to tweak A LOT of pages. Before you get angry: That was overdue. Most pages were not sustainable in the long term in terms of code and layout. We need to move away from tables and use more divs. Ideally, we use a responsive grid system that comes with Foreground, you can read about it here: http://foreground.thingelstad.com/wiki/Grid
Please report all and any problems, ideally post the adress of the page in question, and we can get it fixed quickly.
Here are some of my to dos:
- fix the mp3 extension in case you want to embed audio
- fix layouts of the most popular pages
- redo the staff, help, how to contribute, donate, contact us, etc. pages
- fix sponsoring agreements. That Explosive Media logo is just a placeholder to show Uli how it could look like
Lastly, coming soon is a relaunch of the Forum as well… stay tuned
