  1. GDPR sure received a lot of uproar when it became a thing. I'm not really a fan of Europe laws and I'm glad I don't live there. If you don't know what GDPR is: Source: Wikipedia. I've heard how some trolls used this to hit forums, saying how they are GDPR experts and demanded stuff from forum owners. Of course, I'm going to comply but to a degree. I wouldn't let them take advantage and listen to their demand to delete all content they have posted on a forum/website I own. If they have their real first and last name, I would of course remove that. I would tweak my terms to ban posting personal information such as phone number, address, etc. Then there are the other minor things like privacy policy, cookie notice etc. So yeah, what's your opinion about GDPR and what are you doing on your website(s) regarding it?
  2. Most Wordpress sites I start, I normally use the following: - Yoast SEO (always) - Contact Form 7 (sometimes but the spam discourages me at times too) - GDPR Cookie Consent (sometimes) - A plugin that adds rel nofollow to external links - Sometimes even a widget conditional plugin I try to limit my plugin usage to only the necessaries. What plugins do you use on your Wordpress websites?
  3. Got to say Windows 7 for everyday use. I haven't used 8 or 10 for too long so I don't have a decent opinion about either, but 7 has worked for me through thick and thin. I'm not really a fan of anything Mac, so that's out. What's your favorite OS?
  4. I've seen blogging software. I've seen software to make websites. I've seen forum software. One thing that goes under my radar (or it's probably just not really popular) is social networking website scripts. Do they even exists? Because it surely doesn't feel like they do. It most likely is just me though. What are some of the leading social networking site scripts available? Free or paid, it doesn't matter. I just want to know about the leading options.
  5. This forum uses IPB. I'm guessing the owner prefers it over other forum software. I personally like xenForo. I jumped ship from vBulletin ages ago back when they had version 4 available. 5 was a complete mess from the reviews/opinions I've read. I'm so happy I did not stay with them. If xenForo was never made, I might have went with IPB, phpBB or MyBB. Probably IPB... So out of all the free and paid forum software available today, which is your favorite and why? Please answer as an admin and a regular forum member. Thank you!
  6. I'm surprised people still like vBulletin. Or were you referring to the older versions of vBulletin, Mr King? I've completely forgotten about punBB. I think it's been years since I've seen a punBB forum. I also think I started one before switching to phpBB, however, I used a free forum host back in those days. Never heard about LayerBB before but I will search it up to see how it's like.

  8. Lots of people have been saying how they absolutely HATE the new Gutenberg editor. You can disable it through functions.php with a line of code or install the "old editor" plugin released by Wordpress (at least I think they were the one to release it after hearing how so many people disliked it). I read how Wordpress is planning to drop the plugin and completely disable all support for the old editor after 2 years. I personally felt too used to switching to the HTML editor mode and I was super comfortable editing that way. I did not like change, but I suppose I'll grow used to Gutenberg over time after using it for a while. How do you feel about Wordpress 5? Have you upgraded your Wordpress site(s) to it yet?
  9. I wouldn't for a website I'm serious about. I don't have a problem with free web hosts. It's just that resources will be limited since it's being offered to every Tom, Dick and Harry. Also there is the risk of bad neighbors. Look at what happened to 000webs too. They were hacked and we learned that they stored passwords in plaintext. So, erm, yeah.

  11. Wordpress powers over 50% of websites on the Internet. I think news articles reported this before. I've seen someone comment how they're tired of lazy webmasters/developers setting up wordpress, slapping on a theme and calling it George. He felt as if people should write up the code themselves and then publish their site without using a premade script found on the web. How do you feel about this? Are you tired of seeing Wordpress powered sites on the Internet?
  12. I've heard a lot and I mean A LOT of negative talk about Windows 10. Of course, this was way back when Microsoft first released the operating system. I think they also made it free for a limited time if people upgraded to it. I remember some comments saying it was a trap and that you'd have to pay or something but I can't remember the details. Going back on topic, is Windows 10 really as horrible as people try to make it out to be? Was it bad when it launched and has improved as of today?

  14. There are many ways you can make money from a website. I bet some of you have already tried to do so. You can sell a product, provide a service, ask for donations, offer some sort of premium membership or subscription, use your site visitors' CPU to mine cryptocurrency like monero (don't be shady and do this silently btw), and the list probably goes on and on. How do you all make money from your websites?
  15. What do you think about control panels? Do you prefer to use them instead of using the command line? I think they're just a waste of resources but I think people who can't handle managing their own server should buy hosting with it included or hire a sysAdmin to handle it for them, especially if the websites hosted on that server are business/commercial websites. So what do you think about control panels?
