Domain and Changes

Year 2020! Time sure flew!

Other than the usual maintenance updates of WordPress and its plugins, the last “major” update was a second-page addition to Home(1) – Switched over to UBNT Ubiquiti UniFi Wireless APs

It gets increasingly difficult over the years to grow any inspiration to write tutorials and or photo blogs… because there’re everywhere! I am grateful to the many tutorials online, but it does affect what I plan to share, why re-invent the wheel right?

Most of the organic users that reach this site are due to the tutorials that I have written… and they are not even photography related 😉

I have also made a title change to the main welcome page “Tech Enthusiast, Photographer & Drummer”

It makes sense to just use my name, this way I won’t need to deploy jasonloongtech and jasonloongdrums

Commenting System and Forums

I’ve been using Disqus as this site’s main commenting system, but have decided to go with another system entirely. Disqus recently has become rather…

There were Commento and Jetpack’s Comments  to choose from, I’ve decided to go with Discourse

The unfortunate part of this move is that all the previous comments are not migrated over to the forums

Discourse –

OAuth Registration is enabled on the forum to help smooth out the registration… I know, another forum to register right? You still need to register for other Comment platforms anyway… apart from Commento that supports Guest/Anonymous posting

  • Google
  • GitHub
  • Discord

There is still the forum logo to change which will get updated over the next few days

Till then…
