Some changes to the smoke-indica.com site

Ads

I've set a 30% likelihood of an ad being shown between posts on the index. These are static, not linked to an ad network, they serve to offset thoughts of ever touching my smoke power 😂

In all serious though, I've limited the affiliate links to services which I do or want to use, I've removed the dailyhighclub link because I wasn't too sure about it. In the future I may add Bitshares affiliate links, but for the mean time there's plenty.


Since some of the images in the article body aren't rendering (no image html tags nor markdown for them to render), I've reintroduced a gallery plugin so that users can click the first image above the article to scroll through all the images in the post, regardless of whether or not they're showing in the post.

The first image also has a picture frame border now!


The article title metadata which is used by Twitter and Pinterest has higher priority over the author and site name, it used to be "site - author - title", now it's "title - author - site". This looks better in pinterest posts imo.

We now attempt to convert markdown to HTML so as to render the article contents more. Additional work will be required to replace center tags with image tags & to wrap bare image urls with image tags. In the mean time, the gallery at the top of the article shows all the images well.


The smoke price tracking page now calculates the price of smoke in USD, saving you a quick calculation.


The Google Translate widget supplied by cloudflare was removed because Google has officially dropped support for the google translate widget, now recommending instead that your website is accessible by web browsers which have the built in google translate functionality. It was sporadically available and slowing down the website slightly so no worries it being gone.


Any features you want to request?

Cheers,
Indica.

First off... THANK YOU for using my post with your example here! Much appreciated!

Secondly I am now following you on Pinterest!

Thirdly WHAT A GREAT site (smoke-indica.com)!! I was just over there looking around and found so much interesting features there. LOVE how you have each featured post with links back to here! GREAT exposure for the platform as well as the authors and bloggers here.

·

Thanks :)

WOW! WELCOME TO PINTEREST !!!

Finally, you made it ! Am so glad that smoke.io is featured there. I hope that users here would sign up, make an account and help promote the community by joining and opening an account on Pinterest. It´s the easiest way to promote smoke.io and I know that it will trigger plenty of site traffic. I already added the initial smoke.indica PINS on my board. https://www.pinterest.at/indaymers/cannabis/

Great move @indica! More power to you!

·

I have an account there! Sir @indica!So amazing post for bringing smoke to outside world. @indaymers I will check it and more detail next. So happy to know about it. Keep high and higher!

·

I visited my pinterest account and oh my that is awfully messy haha I need to overhaul because that was ages ago and good thing that @indica tried pinterest there's a lot of rooms for the cannabis the boards can segregate promotions too.

·

Thanks for the recommendation a while ago to use Pinterest, I had a look at some Pinterest pages and saw rather large viewing figures so that pushed me to make the account haha.

I'll need to update the blog to keep the slider images hidden when viewed by a Pinterest browser because it unhides hidden images which are only meant to be viewed using the slider js tool & when all unhidden they go way off screen..

Here's hoping people take an interest in my Pinterest account, will probably take a good while to build it up though..

·
·

Oh, you are welcome...the pleasure is mine! I am sure your account will pick -up audience and followers soon. I was to suggest that you could categorize your boards as in our tags on smoke.io but saw you already started doing it, hehe .... just keep updating and in no time you´ll have a lot of followers.

By the way, have you added a "PIN IT" tool in your Pinterest account? It´s the easiest way to pin any pics from your smoke-indica blog.... in split seconds all pics will be uploaded to your Pinterest boards, you only have to choose which images you want to save in there.

I'm using the web browser extension so I don't need to embed it into the website 👍]

Your page look so great / followed.

Thanks for great and hard work / it is good move / It is not bad also to add Visitor Counter for your website like: https://www.freevisitorcounters.com/
Your blog Looks more better with new features, it is a complete guide that contains the hottest daily contents, smoke's price, sponsors, most active users and the perfect tools to spread the word in order to attract new users and expand our smoke community.

·

It is not bad also to add Visitor Counter for your website like: https://www.freevisitorcounters.com/

I could do maybe, but there hasn't been many page visitors yet to boast about :P

·
·

The visitor counter is a good idea for the site.. every blog has a beginning and if it's there from the start..by and by it will pick up traffic and the counter will grow...

·
·
·

wow, this is good Sir @indica I have a pinterest account, too. I will visit [email protected], easy to access smoke.io

·
·
·
·

Cool thanks

·
·
·

Maybe, as long as it doesn't slow down the website too much. I don't see visitor counts on many websites these days to be honest, they were kinda a web1.0 widget lol

·
·
·
·

Visitor´s count have been so popular about a decade ago when blogs started sprouting at Wordpress and Blogger. The widgets came as kind of an ornament to blogs for purposes of simply adding colors and life to the sidebars of the blog as such. But it is also an important tool to see how popular the blog is.

I'll check it out.. I've actually never been on Pintrest.. your website is looking dope tho

·

Cheers, yeah I've not used Pinterest that much before just when searching for images, but they seem to have quite a lot of users 🤔

Looking great on Pinterest! Don't really use it myself but have followed 👍.

BTW in your last post you requested that folk not use steemimages.com as the image host. It's just steemitimages .com in particular is it - Steempeak and other frontends OK? Guess this is an issue of cross-posting when the code is copied over.

·

As long as the url isn't steemimages it should be ok, you could try it out: https://images.weserv.nl/

·
·

I noticed that clicking any 'more by @author' button returns a delay followed by a 524 timeout messsage. I tried it on a few different ones.

Great work man. The way you are progressing, it seems that soon the blog will start going automatically with enough posts and interest of people which is very good for smoke community. We need more and more promotion and you are definitely doing your part.

The blog is looking more stunning man...Screenshot_20190611-001712.png
Why are some info about some members not displayed on the blog while it's not the same for others?... Like the reputation and some other things about @chipanda in the above image?

·

Good point. This is because for some reason one of the scripts that requests author data has failed to do its job & it's now displaying placeholder blank "?" characters.

A workaround could be me just creating the files for the author manually, probably faster than investigating this glitch 🤔

·
·

Hmmmm...coding ain't an easy stuff

·
·
·

I've just created like 9 missing author profiles, I'll look into the author page creation issues in the next few days. 👍

Good work done, you are a good programmer because a good programmer must look for the project future and it's a good idea for removed dailyhighclub affiliated link because in future you will like to add some key affiliated link like bitshares that can't me optional but need to be in the blog. Kudos to you boss @indica

The site looks better and better with every upgrade you give it.

very nice! is it built in react, angular or other?

·

Uses hexo, static site generator with embedded Js throughout the html code.

Toggle Night Mode

·

Haha yeah no joke nightmode is beneficial, but that would require a large change to css throughout the website. There's some browser extensions which can do this for you. I'll think about this idea further down the line, thanks. 👍

·
·

thank

Great information.thanks for sharing valuable content

I am trying to follow you but i think i have to get the app for this.. will do tgis later surely and nice update including the price as well .. well i think it will be hitting the 0.01 mark very soon..

·

We were up over 1.5c the other day so I don't doubt we will 👍

·

Agreed
