I may have some edits to do that I have missed, and these will certainly be further updated over time … but for now, I am happy with all the top and first level main menu items on the blog.open-empire.org subdomain. Continue reading “Update: March 13, 2017 #3 – top and first level menu pages finished”
Ok. The home page of the blog.open-empire.org subdomain is now rewritten, so that it gives a navigation overview of the menu items to tell you what you’ll find on each page.
[ PLEASE NOTE ] the menu items it’s referring to haven’t been rewritten yet, but I’ve described what will be on them once they’re done ( some of it is there already ).
All the pages from the main menu links on the root domain site ( meaning open-empire.org – not this blog.open-empire.org subdomain site ) are settled for now … although I do want to come up with a replacement image for a couple of placeholders, but there’s no urgency for that.

Quite a few things achieved in the last 24 hours:
I’ve got two methods set up for donations and sponsorship:
- PayPal: paypal.me/galacticprez ( donate – once off ).
- Patreon: patreon.com/open_empire_foundation ( sponsor the project on a regular basis ).
I have gone through the first 7 pages of articles in the blog roll and manually added the “more” tag to them, so that as you browse the updates or blog-roll pages, the posts appear only in short form with a link to “continue reading” … this should help make it faster to navigate the posts to find something you want to read, but I still have another 10 pages to go, as they each have to be done manually, to choose the right point to insert the tag, and sometimes also edit the post around it a bit. Continue reading “Update: March 11, 2017 #3 – “more” links added to posts”
I have now also updated the page at open-empire.org/#learn so that it points to this blog, the associated RSS feed, and also to a wiki subdomain that I haven’t yet installed, but which will be at wiki.open-empire.org. Continue reading “Update March 11, 2017 #2 – Learn page updated”
I’m just putting some final touches on one of the main pages from the root domain open-empire.org/#about after having mostly finished modifying the CSS styling – you might need to refresh your browser to see the new styling – from the template I started with … so keen to get feedback on this page before I move on to the next one … I’m still in the middle of modifying the “history” section down the bottom, but most of the page is done.
Continue reading “Update: March 11, 2017 – About page almost complete”
OK … there’s still a lot more to do, but here’s how things stand:
- The old Open Empire blog pages and articles have been imported into blog.open-empire.org
- The root domain open-empire.org has a link to the blog via the Learn menu
- I have rearranged a little of the look, feel, and functionality of the WordPress blog, but most of it is still just the same content at present
Just thought I’d write a quick post about my goals for this year.
