  2. Mobile Support [ Working on this, about 2-3 days ]
  3. Title, Description, Tags, and other important "SEO" / Share support [ Not Started, approx 2 days ]
  4. Add newly completed lessons to site [ Not started 1 day ]
  5. Various final adjustments [ Not started ]
  6. Create and test Newsletter system [ Not started, approx 1 day ]
9 out of 9 - 12 Days Remaining

I will update this page as I update things. smile

Update 4 of 9 ~ 12

I accidentally closed the update log without saving on Friday, however a lot of updates were posted for the Main Menu, Chat, Header, Footer, Various Bug fixes, Improved mobile support, Improved Tablet to PC support, Dark mode improvements, and more.


Update 5 of 9 ~ 12

Chat

  • Chat titles are now displayed at the top of each topic when viewing them
  • Chat participants feature added to Direct Messages
  • User invitation system has been fully upgraded, displays much better than before and doesn't cause weird bugs
  • Added actions Menu
  • Magic 8-Ball feature has been implemented (24 possible results)
  • Server Time feature has been implemented as action
  • Roll Dice action has been implemented as action
  • Who is online command is now functional
  • User sessions has been added to chat with various instructions for it
  • Who is online is now supported, channels will show who is online given that the topic isn't closed

I have just a few more adjustments to make to the chat such as fixing the bug "last activity", showing a list of who's online, adding the ability to search dictionary words from the Jappleng dictionary directly from chat and I think that will be it for now. The rest of the updates will be the completion of the vocabulary tracker / flashcard app and other things I mentioned before. Essentially, I have a tiny bit left to do for the chat before moving forward. I hope you will all love these updates smile

I'm still working on the site. Last week I started on Thursday due to personal reasons and I decided to focus my attention on something that I've been wanting to work on since forever ago. This is Jappleng related and something you will all love. Additionally other things will release soon, just give me a few more days to work on these things and you'll see in this grand announcement.

This thread will now be locked as it has been some time since I updated this.

I have done all of the above and then some.
Reason I haven't updated this thread was because I forgot about it and I've been hard at work on big updates to release soon. Thank you for keeping watch!

The dictionary has gotten a big upgrade today. Thousands of new words, many have been revised.

Most of the dictionary now contains data including stroke order if it is a singular kanji, JLPT level, grade taught, many examples in English, Japanese with Kanji and Japanese without the Kanji. There is also other features included as well.

A heap of issues regarding the dictionary system has been resolved, a lot of manual labor as well spaning a few days to make these entries correct. There is still some issues when searching for words, this will be resolved at the next update. There will also be a "add to vocabulary list" which immediately becomes available in your flashcards on the next update.

Hello everyone! I'm preparing for yet another update today. I'm deciding what to do because I'm a bit tired of working on apps and would like to focus on making the site more interesting like adding new lessons or making it more mobile compatible etc...
