If you were a user of the Halo Photography Gallery then uploading of fies and screenshots is now working, I kind of forgot to check that it was still possible to upload after upgrading servers from the US (Dreamhost) to the UK (EukHost), Oppsy. » Read more…
Recently had time to look over the site and update a few things that were getting out of date, and generally cleaning a few things up for everything to carry on running along smoothly. The halo photography gallery now runs a beta version which has better SEO features such as permanent id’s, so it friendly for search engines which I have been experimenting with lately so we will see how that goes. I’ve also spend a bit of time creating accurate meta keywords, descriptions for pretty much all pages and also sitemaps to get Halo.Snaver.net up there in the search engine rankings! The site is currently 8 or 9th for the google search ‘Halo 3 Photography‘ which is pretty good going to be honest, hopefully start to push traffic with other search terms once the changes I’ve made start to take effect.
I hope to have a new site online for the release of ODST for users to upload screenshots or movies or whatever really, with features like uploading from desktop and also directly from bungie.net! also want to start pushing the site very hard at that time with a fresh new design and better hosting, or atleast for the databases which power the site which are starting to get fairly large!
That’s about it for now, for updates check here or just look around, i should be updating every so often now i hope!
So i’ve been tinkering with Halo.Snaver.net today just updating, changing and fixing a few things.. some of you may notice while others may not, hope everything turns out ok. Just like to give a shout out to CabooseJr for his massive contribution to the gallery, he currently has 429 screenshots uploaded and is well on his way to 500 shots, so well done again! and keep up the good work!
Just thought i’d make a quick post to let you know i’ve completed the update of the old gallery to the fantastic Coppermine Photo Gallery with such an amazing feature set it really is an advancement over the old gallery, such as multiple upload feature for users & automatic generation of a variety of thumbnails. So what are you waiting for? Go check it out! Or if you’d like to request a gallery send me an email ‘contact-at-snaver.net‘
So I decided to take the the time to make sure that Halo.Snaver.net was up to current web standards and would render correctly on the majority of browsers out there, so I ran the site through the excellent tools over atÂ W3.org and found that there were a few errors (around 20 or so) and set about fixing them, it didn’t take long and was pretty worth it in the end I have to say.
Here’s an excellent article that describes in great detail all about website validation that i learnt alot from, so go check it out!
New users now up! Welcome to Fragg3d,QuackJAG, TheDisplaced, TheOreo & Kirk (Soon to be online), major thanks goes to Louis Wu over at halo.bungie.org for his front page linkage to the Photography gallery.
I’ve been tinkering with the CSS of the site to improve efficiency and to smooth the kinks out, fingers crossed i haven’t broken anything! The menu navigation also received an update.
Finally got around to integrating a blog into the site, expect some ‘blogs’ to follow then i guess!
