Winter is here!
Finally winter has come to Rivendell! And with the snow we get some tweaks to the site header and a little (somewehat hidden) hint on how many listeners we currently have! You can find that number in the text below "Welcome to Rivendell!", at the frontpage only.
Christmas rotation is coming
I've started with a new little upcoming feature for the very near future – A christmas music rotation list! We will sprinkle some seasonal songs in our general channel during December to raise that seasonal spirit!
Today We bring you a bunch of good new tracks! Since we're slowly branching out into some more channels (Lórien for vocal tracks and The Green Dragon for more tranditional irish and pub tracks) you won't hear all of them on the main channel.
Search functionality is back!
Finally, our search is back! It's a little hidden, but you'll find a magnifying glass icon in the menu next to the play button. Just click that and you will be brought to the search page. It's a bit daft and clunky at the moment, and it currently only searches for our music.
Improvements are coming!
On Friday I plan on bringing back the search functionality to the site. So you'll be able to search for artists, albums, tracks, old news etc. I'm nearly done, I just need to touch up on the displaying part. After that I'll swing at brining the rating back too!
As you have noticed, it's Halloween in Rivendell! Apart from that I'm working on bringing back some of the old functionality, like searching and rating. Hopefully it shouldn't be too time-consuming! What else would you like to see?
Banners are back
As some of you might have noticed, the banners are back on the site. This is not to pester you but for me to monetize a little on this otherwise free service. Hopefully we can have ads that look better and are less intrusive, I'll look into that. Now they're a bit annoying.
Updates here and there
Today I've introduced a forum section on the front page where you'll be able to see the latest topics and if you are logged in you are able to directly see what's new since your last visit. I've also added a requirement to fill out a simple question when registering a new account.
