Being as I added titles to posts, I need to make a change to some of the existing titles to make this work well. Titles need to be less than 70 characters to be optimized. I will be adding titles to most of the longer posts to make them search-engine-ready, and I have already done some of this. You may notice this is causing posts to get out of order, not to worry, this will only affect some of the posts. Actually, further looking into this I discovered there is a good way to add titles without having to make them on the first line only. To do this, I used an if statement checking if the length of the first line, the title, is 70 characters or under. If it's not, use text.rsplit(' ', 1)[0] and the first 67 characters of the line followed by ... in the title. This takes all but the last word of a string that's too long for a title and then adds ... to the end of it. This keeps titles under 70 characters and they don't need to be separated from the rest of the content. However, if you don't want a "..." to show up at the end of your post, use a title on the first line 70 characters or under. Also, note that the description is recognized as the second line.

What is git? Git is a free and open-source distributed version control system designed to deal with everything from small to very giant initiatives with pace and efficiency. Version management systems hold these revisions straight, storing the modifications in a central repository. This permits builders to simply collaborate, as they will download a brand new model of the software, make modifications, and add content to the newest revision. A fork is a repository that has been copied from one member's account to a different member's account. Forks and branches enable a developer to make modifications without affecting the unique code. Git is the preferred model management system of most developers since it has multiple advantages over the other systems obtainable. It stores file adjustments more efficiently and ensures file integrity better. If you're looking for details on git commands, the Git Basics page has an intensive clarification on how Git works. Basic commands are "git clone " to clone a repository, "git add --all" to add files, "git commit -m "" to stage changes, and "git push -u origin" to push changes to the remote repository. GitHub is a for-profit company that gives a cloud-based Git repository hosting service. I use GitHub to store the code for this website, and I host my other website on GitHub Pages. Essentially, it makes it so much simpler for people and groups to use Git for version management and collaboration. GitHub is a useful place to backup, edit, and even serve content. If the developer wants to share the modifications, she can ship a pull request to the proprietor of the original repository. If, after reviewing the modifications, if the original proprietor wishes to pull the modifications into the repository, she will settle for the modifications and merge them with the original repository. Commits are, by default, all retained and interleaved onto the grasp project, or can be combined into a less complicated merge via commit squashing. GitHub facilitates social coding by providing a web interface to the Git code repository and administration instruments for collaboration. GitHub can be thought of as a serious social networking site for software builders. Members can observe each other, see each other's work, obtain updates for specific code and talk publicly or privately. GitHub is a Git repository internet hosting service, but it adds a lot of its personal options. Tom Preston-Werner presented the then-new Gist feature at a punk rock Ruby conference in 2008. Gist builds on the normal easy idea of a Pastebin by including model management for code snippets, easy forking, and TLS encryption for private pastes. Because every "gist" has its own Git repository, several code snippets could be contained in a single paste and they are often pushed and pulled utilizing Git. Further, forked code can be pushed again to the unique creator in the form of a patch, so Gists can become more like mini-projects. You’ve forked a repository, made an excellent revision to the project, and want it to be acknowledged by the unique developers—possibly even included in the official project/repository. The authors of the original repository can see your work, after which choose whether or not or to not accept it into the official project. Whenever you have a problem, submit a pull request, GitHub offers a perfect medium for you and the primary project’s maintainer to communicate. The developer can then safely make adjustments to that part of the code without affecting the remainder of the project. Instead, model control lets developers safely work through branching and merging. If a core developer wanted to work on one particular part of the WordPress codebase, it wouldn’t be safe or efficient to have them immediately edit the “official” supply code. Because GitHub is so intuitive to use and its model-control tools are so helpful for collaboration, nonprogrammers have additionally begun to make use of GitHub to work on doc-primarily based and multimedia tasks. And earlier this 12 months Atlassian launched Stash, a product that enables you to host non-public, on-premise Git repositories with BitBucket/GitHub-type collaboration options. The firm additionally sells developer collaboration instruments just like the bug tracker Jira and the wiki Confluence. While Git is a command-line software, GitHub supplies a Web-primarily based graphical interface. It additionally offers access management and several other collaboration options, corresponding to wikis and fundamental task administration tools for each project. Some of Git’s predecessors have a central “repository” of all the information associated with a project. When a developer makes changes, these adjustments are made directly to the central repository. With distributed version management techniques like Git, if you want to make a change to a project you copy the whole repository to your personal system. You make your changes in your native copy, then you definitely “verify” the modifications to the central server. This encourages the sharing of more granular modifications since you don’t have to connect to the server each time you make a change. GitHub’s issue monitoring characteristic might eventually compete with other similar software companies for some initiatives. These three options – fork, pull request, and merge – are what make GitHub so highly effective. Before services like GitHub, the maintainer of a repository would then have to gauge each patch, possibly dispatched by a stranger, and determine whether to merge the changes. Now, this process is streamlined through Git and GitHub interface. GitHub's Terms of Service do not require public software projects hosted on GitHub to satisfy the Open Source Definition. The phrases of service state, "By setting your repositories to be seen publicly, you agree to permit others to view and fork your repositories." "Forking" is whenever you create a brand new project-primarily based on one other project that already exists. This is an incredible function that vastly encourages the additional growth of applications and other projects. Specifically, Git is a distributed version control system, which means that the entire codebase and historical past of each repository are on the developer’s PC, which allows for simple version control and leads to a better developer experience.

You can now view random posts and random users! This will be useful for finding content and users when the site has more to it. You can click the links towards the bottom of the about page (uglek.com/about), or go to uglek.com/post/random for a random post. uglek.com/user/random takes you to a random user's profile too. I'm going to implement more fun and useful features like this in the near future. I want to make this website feature-rich so I can expect good user retention, with low bounce rates, lots of page views, and high session duration. Let me know if there are any other features you would like to see on the website! You can comment below, or send me a message. I'm happy to add anything people would be interested in using that won't interfere with the user experience of the site.

I have made some useful changes to Uglek. Now you can delete messages, with a delete button on each message in your inbox and a confirm delete page. As well as this, I changed the register page so it will automatically log you in when you sign up, no need to put in your password again. I have also made fixes to the way users are deleted, with all of their messages, posts and comments deleted whenever a user is deleted. I won't delete a lot of users, but it's important to have a good user deletion system for keeping spam off of the site. Now I can keep the site spam-free in just a few clicks, instead of having to delete each post, user, and comment. Please let me know if you see spam on the site and it isn't removed promptly, I will tend to this and remove any posts that violate our rules. It seems lately there have been some spam posts in Russian, I'm not sure what that's about, but all suspicious posts and users are removed from the site for the time being. I'm starting to build up quite a large database of posts and users, and I hope more people will join in the near future. Currently, not a lot of ads are showing on the site, but I will serve more ads within the next month or so as I post more content to the site. Yesterday, the site had 355 page views according to Google AdSense, so hopefully, these should be worth something. I think this is really good considering my previous site had nowhere near this many pageviews, despite my working hard on the site. This site is a lot more engaging though, so I see why it is more popular. Users can be more interactive and there's more to see on the site. I have even more photos from my travels I am going to share here, with captions so you know what the photos are about. These are from travels in Washington, around Europe, and in Alaska. I'll also share about my college work, as I am going back to school soon online. I'll be taking classes in computer science, English, math, and more to get a degree in the computer science field. I want to work with computers in my future, and I already have a lot of experience and projects working with computers, and I would like to get more experience. That's why I'm going to go back to school. Music is great, but I still want to get a degree and have a day job until I am ready to fully support myself from my music. I haven't been working for the past few months, and have been relying on savings and income from my music to support me, but I will be working again soon. Unfortunately, this means I will have less time to spend on this website and on making music. I'm not going to stop making music or posting here though. I am still going to build my online presence and work hard to make this a great place to enjoy new content.

I added tagging, so tag other users in your posts! Just use an @ and then their username, like @intersex to tag anyone in your posts. I also changed the buttons a little bit, the rainbow buttons were hard to read so I changed their color to pink. I think this makes it a little bit easier to use the site, as it may have been difficult to see what the text on the buttons said before. Hopefully, it is easier to read the buttons now. I have noticed that sometimes profile photos and other images posted here rotate incorrectly, I'm not sure of a good way to fix this. I have noticed that square photos seem to work best of all and they don't rotate incorrectly. Maybe I'll add a rotate photo button in the future so it's possible to rotate directly within the app. For now, I suppose it will suffice to make the photos square. Tagging users in posts is a good way to connect people a little bit more easily in the app, as it doesn't require writing a whole link just to link to a user profile. I'll add more social features like this, even groups in the future, to make the site a better social experience. I'm also working hard to create a good user experience on this site and ensure there are no problems. The site has been approved for Google AdSense, so you should start seeing ads here within the next few days. I'm curious to see how well this site will do compared to my other one, there will soon be a lot more to this site. My other site hasn't made me very much money so far, but I think this one may be more successful as I can generate more content quickly and do this through the app. I will update within the next few weeks with my stats from Google AdSense so you can see how well the page is doing. Thanks for tuning in.
