Improvements in mobile browsing

You might not see it right away, but a load of things have been improved on your favourite directory these last couple of months! It's because it's all under the scene... I've added loads of optimization for mobile devices:

  • Now images are generated in multiple sizes and only the best fit will be downloaded to your phone/tablet while the high resolution will still be available for desktop computers.
  • Also the images are now lazy loaded which mean less bandwidth if you don't look at the whole page.
  • The loading of the little decorative icons have also been improved.

Sadly, I'm giving a lot of time into the development of the website, and it's not really this one I want to show to recruters... Life's a beach :p

Introducing new accounts

If you have been updating your informations on our directory before, you should remember that you had to use the Website ID and the password associated with the Website (and repeat the process for each website).

We listened to your comments and we introduced a user account where you can update the details of all your websites once logged in.

  • One login
  • One password
  • All websites

You no longer need the website ID to update your details, but you're going to use your email address instead to login:

If you have only one website registered, your new login is your email address, and the same password as before.

If you have more than one website, they will be grouped by the email address you used during the registration. You will have to ask for a new password via the reset password feature.

New hosting!

I finally gave up with my hosting provider. I also gave up with shared hosting alltogether. That was the last straw.

I moved the website to a rented server, and I'm going to manage it all by now. Please let me know if you have any issues with it (it should all be fine though!)

Anyway, if you're like me and can't face shared hosting companies any more, I'm looking into some scheme where I could share a server with other websites. Let me know if you could be interested and we can discuss :-)

At last, enjoy a fast website!

Cookies

If you live in the European Union you will notice that I'm now asking your permission for setting up cookies. This is a requirement that I always thought was stupid, but it's still a requirement. Enjoy!

Browsing on mobile devices

As you might have noticed, this website is now mobile friendly. To keep your experience enjoyable on mobile devices, I've added an information about the links that are also mobile friendly: Check for the little tablet and smartphone icon next to the website description, and you're good to go!

Is it ok now?

I think the issues with the website are now fixed. I haven't got a "connection reset by peer" at all today. Is it ok for you? Please send me a quick message if you're still seeing issues.

Thanks!

Current issues with the hosting company

Have you had any issue loading some pages of the website recently? Well if you haven't, lucky you! I've had plenty issues from here!

The technical support of my hosting provider (online.net) is telling me everything is perfectly fine and I can't use a browser.

If it happens that a page is not loading and the browser is showing a SSL error, just refresh the page and in general it just works.

Bare with me, I'm doing everything I can to fix the issue.

New design

That was the biggest update since I've opened the directory to the public!

I think the old design dated back from 2005 / 2006.

Now you can browse the site using a smartphone, a tablet or a computer.

What do you think of it?

New design

Like I mentionned before, I'm working on a new responsive design for the website.

I still have a lot to do, but I thought I could share a screenshot. I don't know if the final version will be this one, but it will certainly look similar:

What do you think?

Turning social

Good news everyone! (does it remind you of something?)

Anyway, I'm turning social! I've opened a twitter account to keep in touch with you guys:

https://twitter.com/feetlinks

If you would like to contact me through another social platform instead, just let me know.

See you there!

Security

Two big news for today:

  • I've changed my hosting provider. After 16 years with the previous one!
  • The biggest advantage of my new hosting provider is to propose HTTPS, which the website is now fully using. You can browse safely on my website now! How cool is that?

If you find something not working properly, please shout!

Thanks

Big update soon

I know the website hasn't changed for the last ... 5, 6 years maybe? Well it's about to change for good! I'm preparing a big update of the website. It should happen in the next couple of months. Stay tuned!

Fred.

New search engine

Hi!

While waiting for the new design to be finalized, I've finallly rewritten the search engine. It's something I wanted to do for a long time but never got a chance. This new version is much faster, works with paging, and finally orders the results by relevance.

Please try it, and tell me what you think

Thanks :-)

Bugs splatted

You know, I have a local database, this is the one I use. Then I upload the updates regularly to the website. I just found out there were some links that stayed on the database that were supposed to be deleted. The good news is, I finally found out, and deleted all the buggy links!

The undead

I don't like waste. It's actually quite rare I throw away anything. And it's also true with my links. When a link is broken, I put it in a special "bin" section and forget about it. Well this week-end I've dug up a few old ones that are actually back! (and deleted some others for ever).

Enjoy the old new links!

Winter cleaning

I keep forgetting about all these sites at the bottom of the lists... I already knew they were abandonned, but this week-end I've been chasing the dead links. It's good to do some house cleaning once in a while!

New design

As you could have guessed, I'm not a designer. But at work I now have access to a lot of online courses. So I did follow a few courses on how to build a responsive website.

Do you like the entry page? it's all brand new from today :)

Stay tuned, there's more to come!
