Configuration Changes No Comments   
Written by Falcon on 6/10/2020 at 12:49am in Announcements

Development continues on the theme today as we test out new configuration options.  Yes, I know, it’s not for the members to see, but it means one more thing … we’re one step closer to being able to release the theme for purchase and download!  That’s right, something that was considered a longshot in 2018 is now something we’re aiming for in 2021.

One of the hardest things for us to do was to develop a reliable system where we could change just one piece of information and have it show up across multiple areas of the website.  We had the ability to have the information posted 6 different times, but when we change one piece of information, we would sometimes forget that we had to change it 6 different times.  Today, I am happy to announce that general theme configuration is now done through one specific file, not 4.  To clarify, we had 4 separate files to show information to 9 different user groups (Grouped into 6):

  • Administrators & Managers (1)
  • Moderators (1)
  • Authors, Contributors & Editors (ACE) (2)
  • VIP Members (2)
  • Regular Members (3)
  • Site Visitors (4)

As I have pointed out before (more times than I can probably count at this point), about 98% of this has been just me.  I’ve had a few ideas here and there from my business partner (and friend) that have made things better, but it’s been me for the most part.  I am super proud of the direction of Team Falcon, and just when I think I’m out of ideas, more keep coming in!  Thank you all so very much for the support you have given me these last 2 years.  It’s been fun, and it’s only gonna get better from here on out!


Falcon 4 Officially Launches No Comments   
Written by Falcon on 6/3/2020 at 3:03pm in Announcements

Today, after some more testing involving Dark Mode 2.0, we have come to the conclusion that there was a “conflict of interest” when interacting with a WordPress Plugin that made a “makeshift” Dark Mode.  While it was nice, it inverted the colors (with exception to our logo).  That plugin alone is the inspiration for our themes.  Yesterday, we released our first “test” theme called Fire.  We also renamed some themes to expand even further with the new Dark Mode.  On top of the name changes, Falcon 3.5 is officially out of the system.  We have done away with the sharp edges and we will hopefully enhance it a little more.

Please be advised that the Forums are available as a plugin, and Dark based themes do not include forum customization.  This may change at a later date, provided we can get the forum programming code in order to modify it correctly.


Falcon 4 in Beta No Comments   
Written by Falcon on 5/25/2020 at 1:16pm in Announcements

Last week, we were ready to release an update, dubbed Version 3.2.  And, shortly after we released it, we ran into some minor issues that made us have to go back and return to Version 3.1.  We fixed the bugs, but we left out the new features, and we called it Version 3.1.1.  Now, 3.1.1’s update gave us a chance to start fresh with our previous issues and work our way back up.  When we were able to get everything to work flawlessly, we called it Version 3.5.  Then, an idea hit.  Why not have 3.5 just have 1 thing … one small, yet huge thing?  While Version 3.5 only got half of the Falcon 4 header, it also gained the ability to change themes.  Falcon 4’s plan is to focus on those themes, but we want to test that even further with the relaunch of our Beta program.
