The official blog for Lewd.It



A short update on the development of Lewd.It

Updates will be slow for a while; I'm currently in the process of updating the code-base, which will be a lot of un-noticeable work. This is a necessary slowdown as it'll make it a lot easier to develop & update features in the future.

This update will likely not effect anything visually but may improve performance in certain areas.

Along with this I've recently acquired a new full-time job so I won't have as much free time to work on updates. So that will contribute to this slowdown as well.

Hopefully I will have the code base updated soon and we can get round to improving the really outdated areas of the site.

24/05 Hotfix

- Removed the admin posts from explore, no need for them there, don't wanna take up the space! :)

- Updated & fixed the responsiveness of blog posts (this was integrated in the dashboard but not on blogs)
