    thinBasic web home redesigned

    With Petr we are redesigning thinBasic home page: https://www.thinbasic.com

    So far:

    • Removed WordPress back end CMS (too slow, too big, not needed)
    • Made one single web scrolling page
    • No need to click to get info, just scroll
    • Fast loading timing
    • Mobile friendly


    Will be working on it more in new year to give more easy to get info and to try to convince Google to better index it

    Let us know if you have difficulties to navigate stating OS and Browser.

    Ciao and a great year to everybody.
    Eros

    Looking good on mobile & chrome.
    Just the very bottom section where it changes text and shows either Eros' or Petr's face is not fitting the text. Meaning the longer text (when Petr's face is shown) covers the wrong area a bit,
    I try to add screenshots:


    And, can string not be up to 2GB, not just 1GB?

    Thanks.
    Bottom part is to be fixed.
    1Gb/2Gb ... it depends: max memory available for the single process is 2Gb, so if you copy 1Gb buffer into another ... there is a time where you need 3Gb of ram and script will hang.

    Hi - I looked at the downloads section on the new thinbasic home page and it said if you want your program compatible with W2k and above then must use stable version thinBasic 1.9.16.17.

    thinBasic 1.10.X is only compatible with Win7 and above because of the new stuff presumably.

    I hadn't realised that 1.10.x might not work on Win2k, Win XP or Vista so quickly re-installed the stable version and re-bundled and uploaded my TAB programs + recent games (using 1.19.16.17) just in case!

    I just wanted to ensure that my program will run on as many versions of Windows as possible.

    However, I would like to know am I right in thinking that programs made under 1.10.x and also with the upcoming new release of TB may still work on w2k, XP and so on [providing that they do not use any of the new features that were added after 1.19.16.17 ]

    Yes you are right in your thinking.
    I try to keep thinBasic Core engine as backward compatible as possible. This ensures that basic functionalities are still compatible with W XP or higher.
    Than every module has its own compatibility, the same for thinAir and its tools.

    So I'm quite sure you will still be able to use 1.10.x also for scripts running u der W XP.

    I cannot guarantee that this will be forever especially for thinAir.

    Ciao

    Hi cat,
    it's not always up to thinBasic only to keep backward compatibility. Sometimes there are changes that are not announced by Windows and nobody will ever know.
    Example:
    since Windows 8 upgrade to Windows 10 GetTickCount seems abandoned. Scripts that worked before have to replace it with some alternative as using the tB-Hires-Timer.

    For some months now if I searched on Google for thinbasic or thinbasic forum neither the website or the forum would appear in the search results. I searched for them today and they both appeared as the first results, which has to be a good thing.

    I haven't tried accessing the forum using my laptop browser yet, I'm using Chrome on my tablet and it's working fine.

    Yes thinbasic.com completely disappeared from Google indexing.

    I think I did a mistake when I switched from http to https: I removed access to http and left only https with a redirect page.
    I think this was not seen as good behave by Google.
    Also didn't instructs Google Search Console about the new asset and this was another mistake.

    Yesterday evening after some hours of study and settings I was finally able to let Google re-index thinbasic.com site.

    Hope I will be able to improve visibility in next months with some ideas.

    Ciao
