New website updates - Coming soon!
I've been working on some new features for TheDevGame.com, here's a brief overview of what I'm working on.
If you've seen me around the MinecraftForums then you might have noticed my signiture banner.
My banner is a dynamic image drawn programatically by TheDevGame.com which is updated automatically once an hour.
I use my banner to display the all time download history of my mods as well as what I'm currently working on and the current version of WizardCraft.
Since I started using my banner I've had loads of private messages on the Forum asking me where I got it, and well all I can say is that I made it myself which doesn't really help the person asking.
So, I decided to extend the functionality of my website to allow anyone to sign up to TheDevGame and create a banner of there own.
For the first version of my Dynamic Banners you will be able to upload whatever image you want and display the following content:
- Twitter updates
- Facebook updates
- Personalised messages
- RSS feeds
- YouTube updates
For the moment you wont be able to display a count of downloads like I do. Mainly because TheDevGame hosts my downloads so it's easy to count.
If the feedback is good and the dynamic banners prove popular then I may extend it further to allow people to host their Mod/Skins on TheDevGame and display their download count on their banner.
This update will be coming in the next few weeks along with a few imporvements to other areas of the site.
Thanks for reading.
