Before this blog is using the current post template, there is a lot of changes on the post template and actually it already changing for years. I already started blogging since 2012 and there are other several platforms tested before it arrives at this current platform.
The platform is from blogger, Evernote, OneNote, wordpress.com, and many others.
Here is the list of changelog of blog template from oldest to newest version.
v1 : Classic for Onenote
First version where every Heading are aligned center, separated by line, and bullets to list apps and reviews
Discontinued – Because it is Cluttered and hard to read
v2 : Unified Table for Onenote
Combined Category and subcategory, with pros and cons into single table and chosen apps are highlighted with yellow colour
Discontinued : Because it is unable to sort content in desc row because it will also sort subcategory too
v3 : Split Table for Onenote
Similar to v2 : Unified Table but with Category separated by pages, Subcategory separated by tables.
Discontinued – Because table become misaligned with each other and the page will be too long if there is a lot of subcategories
v4 : Unified Style 2 for Onenote
It is Unified Style 1 but with new category column, changed pros and cons into license and description, with table row color red for discontinued and green for chosen apps
Discontinued: google spreadsheets offer more filters and customization
v5 : Table Lite Style for Onenote
I created a simple version of the table which is 2 column only which is apps name + images and description
Discontinued – Because table become cluttered
Extra Version : Table of Contents (TOC) Model 1 -3 for Onenote
i created 3 model of TOC (TOC 1, TOC 2, TOC 3 ) and i choose TOC 3 as good option
Discontinued – Because every new page or content require TOC update and onenote doesn’t support automatic update
v6 : Subcategory Tree for Onenote
Combine all subcategory pages into single pages tree that can be collapsed or expanded
Discontinued – Because Subcategory is not working on OneNote online
v7 : Detailed Table A for Onenote
table with more detailed review separated by categories
Discontinued – Even Though Effective for detailed reviews, but google spreadsheet offer more features
v7.1 : Detailed Table B
I created another version of a detailed table which combines a detailed table with another detailed table.
Discontinued – Because it causes high resources on Onenote and table to become misaligned with each other
v8 : Filter Style for Onenote
Some category used good, average, bad as a filter with yellow highlight as a chosen food
Discontinued – not efficient for large data, google spreadsheet is better
v9 : WordPress.com + Table for WordPress.com
I decided to try using wordpress.com and insert table in the posts
Discontinued – Because HTML table alignment is bad on wordpress.com
v10 : Onenote Online
copy the link of online OneNote to WordPress and upload pdf converted from OneNote since OneNote online cannot be viewed on mobile.
Discontinued – Because PDF need to be generated regularly
v11 : Blogspot
I tried moving my content into a blogger from google.
Discontinued – Because dashboard has no sort feature like A-Z and widget will be cluttered every theme update
v12 : Article Style 1 For Blogspot
article style for compatibility toward blogs, every subcategory has its own posts, and category are located in top bar
Discontinued – Good compability for blogs with classic editor but currently moved to new editor such as gutenberg that offers better functionality
v13 :Article Style 2 For Blogspot
Modified Article Style 1 with images on align left before text.
Discontinued – Image on blogs often become miasligned with blog posts
v14 : Table Row Header For Onenote
I tried to create a table using rows as a header instead of a column. Rows are a, b, c in the images.
Discontinued – Sorting is not possible for rows
v15 : WordPress.org + Plugins
The plugin used is Elementor and Ninja Tables
Style Post: are 2 Horizontal Column, 1 Image, and 1 Text, separated by Divider
Discontinued – plugin usually freemium, since wordpress.org is self-hosted so it need to be hosted and updated regularly to avoid hacks.
v16 : Google Spreadsheets
Using Google spreadsheets to store all contents
- v16.0 – initial version, with basic column (categories – name – rating – desc) and additional detailed column (subcategories – price – type – bathroom – kitchen – etc)
- v16.1 – Additional column is removed to reduce redundant data (subcategories – price – type – bathroom – kitchen – etc) since the basic column is more than enough to offer ratings.
Ongoing – Perfect for massive data which can be filtered like culinary, product, etc, but not suitable for a long post like stories
v17 : WordPress.com + Gutenberg
in 2018 Gutenberg editor is released for wordpress.com and I give it a try.
Ongoing : WordPress.com is free for lifetime and gutenberg make it more nice looking.
v18 : Google Sites
in 2020, i decided to use google sites because its editor are much better gutenberg editor.
Discontinued : google sites become cluttered due to no categories and tags
