A resource site for AD&D 1e / Gaming Crafts

Month: June 2021

Update – Files Interface Working

A suitable file manager that can make lists here and download form Google Drive was found!  I’ve got it configured and the files are up and ready to go.   The site is now operational, only thing left to do is find a few files that I lost in the crash and upload them, then make sure I found all the 3D printing and papercraft images.

Update – Site (mostly) functional

From a technical standpoint, its working. Geoblocking program installed and working, failed login ban installed and working, robots.txt updated to stop PetalBot and Yandex bot from hammering the site with constant lookups.

From a content standpoint, the pictures I can find for both 3D printing and paper crafting are up in their respective galleries and working. The files are up, albeit crudely as read-only share to my Google Drive. I am still looking for a WordPress plugin I can use as a front-end to access them with more details. But regardless, the files have descriptive names so once again the spell cards and all the other forms are downloadable!


Progress – Uploads in Progress

The main site is streamlined and up. I have begun uploading pictures into the papercraft sections and have completed all the Diorama galleries. I will move on to the rest of the papercraft galleries, then on to the 3D ones. Had to go back and add in a Captcha plugin…Russian spammers were creating 15-20 accounts an hour. Additionally, found a plugin that allows Geoblocking, so goodbye Russia and China.

Still experimenting with a file transfer subdomain. Zen Gallery says it can handle files, but not sure how it works or if it is audio / video only. More experimentation required!
