After the first failed attempt of my own social web site using Oxwall and a lot of work and some inspired guess work my own social web site, On the Other Side!, is back up and running using WordPress/BuddyPress and various plugins associated with them.
Over the past month I have been working on the new version of the web site which included moving it on to a new server at home which went remarkably well and a lot easier than I expected. Though I expect I will continue to add and remove features on the new social web site depending if existing features prove useful or not and new features are added to WordPress/BuddyPress.
But at least it is now a workable social web site waiting for my friends and interesting people to join me there which I hope my friends join me there so I can keep up with them outside of the mainstream social networks.
Only issue I now have is with sloggers and spammers who insist on joining my social network in vain hope someone will listen to their pathetic messages. Luckily I have a wonderful plugin which stops the large majority of them in their tracks which is very entertaining especially now they are helping the hits on my site.
