Hello all,

After putting in many hours, I have finally finished tweaking my blog site. It's a tech-related blog, just like dotTech, except I'm not gonna be churning out 10 articles per day like Ashraf.

 

Tell me what you guys think!

Oh and is the avatar uploader not working? When I click upload, nothing happens.

Nice! I especially like the name of the website.

And I am not sure why avatar uploads are not working. I will look into it, sooner or later.

@PCbasics: Your current comment system looks pretty good – it looks like the Wordpress comment system (simple, just need a name and email). Blogger's default comment system requires multiple extra clicks just to enter username. The one I'm using now is IntenseDebate, which is adequate but still not as good as Wordpress I think. 

 

And probably just like you, using Wordpress is not an option because I'm too cheap to get paid hosting. I don't trust the free ones out there either (like 000webhost).

@Jyo: ATM your comment system looks just fine……So whatever you got now keep it. What I was talking about for my site is when I hold giveaways and stuff I can't track spam and multiple submissions on one IP. So its hard to keep comments under control. Either I delete them myself (too troublesome) or due to my experience, disqualify people I have suspicion on……

 

btw I just purchased a domain Laugh

@PCbasics: Guess I'm the only cheap one here then! I don't know if IntenseDebate supports your blog format (if you're curious you can check it out), but it displays the IP of all commenters AND allows you to ban any one of those IP's.

Akismet is an anti-spam plugin for Wordpress.

No, not really. It's fine. Besides, my main computer is a bit broken right now, so I'd really not post much on it anyway.
