Script Review

As I am not a programmer and I do not have much knowledge on programming. I found free scripts on the internet for my site building. Unfortunately, some installed scripts have faded out and no version upgrade after years.

One of the scripts I used is FanUpdate, that is a blog script for multi-sites. I have used for years as site news. It is useful but it is really not user-friendly when removing spams (no batch removal function). I have got fed up with removing the spams one by one or removed them in phpMyAdmin. So, I have decided to use another script.

After searching on the internet, not many scripts fit to my requirements, i.e, light and can be embeded in multi-sites. I have given a try on Cutenews, but unfortunately, I cannot login to the dashboard after several repeated installations. Finally, I install WordPress, which I have used for my personal blog for years. Though it is not light, but it is well-maintained and able to manage the blog for multi-sites.

So, our update blog has been back again!

The Vampire Coven Online Resource Centre

Sorry for being idle for such a long time. Luckily, our sites are still alive.

Recently, I have planned to change the hosting service due to the issue of IP frequent change. However, I have encountered some script problems when switching host and causing errors. Therefore, I have a detailed review on the installed scripts.

The script causing errors is from one of our sites, TVC Online Resource Centre, for displaying the resource at The Dark Heaven and The Vampire Coven. I cannot fix the errors, so I only can remove it. And I think it is hard to maintain TVC Online Resource Centre under WordPress, I have decided to close it. Probably, the resource stuff will appear at The Dark Heaven but I really need more time to think on it.

Anne Rice Link Directory

To be a website master, I really would like to see several directories to list my websites, so that more traffic can be drawn. I also love to see if there are any link directory delicates to Anne Rice. I think it is much easier for her fans to find and read more information about her and her work. Several anne rice link directories have been born but died or abandoned in the end. It is a pity. Therefore, I am eager to create one on my own. Hope I can find a good script to manage it. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to write comments.
