Warescription Site Revamp

The Warescription site has been rewritten to use Bootstrap 3, for better use on mobile devices and a cleaner look in general.

The same functionality exists as before, in largely the same organization, though the navigation is now a top nav bar rather than a side nav bar. Existing subscribers should have little trouble finding where everything is — let me know if I am mistaken in that assessment.

However, there are two deprecations.

First, temporarily, subscribing via Bitcoin is unavailable. I should have that working again in a couple of days. Credit card, debit card, and PayPal are all available.

Second, Google logins are no longer supported. Google’s support for OpenID 2.0 is ending in April 2015, and neither of their alternatives are palatable. Worse, something in the OpenID handling on the new site works for other OpenID providers (e.g., Stack Exchange) but not Google, and it is not something that I can readily fix. If you subscribed and used a Google account for setting up your Warescription account, contact me and I can work with you to get your Warescription moved over to another Warescription site account.

If you run into any problems with the new site, please let me know, so that I can work to fix it.
