Changelog

Introduction

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
