Myrddin at MMO-Game.EU Portal

Since I changed this site to a blog (in 2006) has been a World of Warcraft related site. However now and then I’d like to write about other games too, but at the same time not clutter the blog with unrelated posts. For games like Fallout 3, Mass Effect, Witcher 2 I have been mainly using other forums instead. This has been bugging me for a while.

How to stop unwanted Crawlers, Bots and Spiders!

Do you know the feelign when sometimes there are more bots than visitors crawling over your site?

I decided that this has to stop!

Firefox, custom Webfonts and CDN issues

This one took me a while to figure out. On my main site I am using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to deliver files from different domains and speed up page loading times.

With the new design I am using a custom font and it displayed properly up till I activated said CDN. All Browsers but Firefox continued to properly display the Font and ofc I thought at first that it was my own fault.

New Look!

As you have noticed the past weeks there were some lack of updates.  However I made good use of my spare time as you can see! The previous Theme was pretty nice, but due to all the stuff that was listed it was an Information overkill and the right posts were hard to find. In the next days I plan to improve that a lot. I’ll remove and overhaul pages and navigation.

WordPress updated Permalink Structure, rewrite htaccess

After 5 years of writing and getting tired of linking urls that look like I thought it would be nice to get rid of the date part and shorten urls for irrelevant information. The whole purpose of the standard „year/month/day“ structure is to make it easier for wordpress to recognize an url as belonging to a post.

Theme Showcase

As some of you may know I sometimes create wordpress themes. Once in a while you run across a design, that doesn’t fit the goal you had in mind, but at the same time is too nice to just thrash. There are probably a a couple of people who can use these and finish customization for themselves.
