The layout of the frontpage still looks crappy...
WordPress's performance was terrible, one reason is the low-powered server, another main factor is the plugin we use, as the whole framework of the mainpage, is really slow.
PHP 7 was tested to improve the performance, but soon discovered some incompatibilities with plugins, need to port them to PHP 7. PHP 7 has been stopped temporarily.
Partially fixed a performance issue that requests tinyURL every time loading the mainpage.
A domain replacement is scheduled, part of the reasons is resolve the DoS attack.
Security and LibreJS compatible
Suite for event calender
[Mitigated]Currently an ongoing DoS attack is still active. The attack source is a botnet that publishes large amount of spams to the wiki. As a countermeasure, active responses, such as IP-blacklist and URL-blacklist are used, public registration of the wiki is turned off.
We may use an anti-spam plugin to block bots from registering, and make the public registering open again.
Still lacks useful information, such as member lists, hardware recommendation, and event records and related introductions.
