ArtofShadows.com – Content and code

Content is on a monthly schedule generally speaking, I am expecting to export never before seen stuff in the future. There are no videos yet but I may add some in the future, the videos require more setup to be reliable. Lot’s of code on the AOS site is becoming more and more of my own, the stuff generally focuses on security and utilities. I do want to remove some more plugins I pay for and code the functions myself.

The approval system is done manually, but a few months ago a few scripts were made to automatically take care of some ‘shady visitors’ and to check if they actually used the website or just sent ‘fake’ data through a script request, pretty easy to figure with all the ‘bait’ added to the site. I have seen a handful of user login bots/scripts, a few tied to previous ‘real’ users who were denied approval to the site.

75+% of entities trying to register on AOS get denied currently.

Some upcoming light changes:

  1. Kontakt, this is a simple function and I am making a small one for logged in users to just send in a quick message I can read on the site. If I decide to make this fancy you might be able to get a response on the site as well.
  2. aos_video_player , my own video player with hash-id built in and custom file settings. You may see another in it’s place until then.
  3. Theme changes, I use generatepress (which is excellent) and create my own child themes for WP. I am wanting to just create a simple theme system with a child theme for easy modification. Mainly I am trying to get rid of more third party code aka stuff to pay for.
  4. Other small shit members can care less about.
  5. I might do a shoot in the next few months, maybe a warmup first then something cool.
