I just wanted to give a shout-out that I have finally completed the lyrics indexing!! For all 2,700-or-so translations! The indexing that I started doing back in, like, October because I didn’t, for whatever reason, think organizing it this way would be a good idea way back when I first started this site. So. Glad that’s finally done! Whew! So now, if I’ve translated more than one song by a particular artist, clicking on their name in the lyrics index will bring up a page with a listing and links of the titles of all their translated songs, so searching for a particular song translation should be a lot easier now than having to scroll scroll scroll through multiple pages of unorganized translations. Yippee!!
Lyrics by artist are listed in English alphabetical order by pronunciation of their Thai title… Sounds confusing, I know, and I’m sorry to all my Thai readers who are bound to find it awkward, but it was the only way I could think of that would be the easiest for foreigners who couldn’t read Thai but maybe knew the pronunciation of the song title to be able to find the one they’re looking for most quickly.
Also, all bands that have names that begin with “The” are indexed under the “T’s,” though I don’t think that’s grammatically correct in English, but that’s the way WordPress organized them when they were categories, and I’ve been too lazy to change them around myself.
Also, due to the amount of scrolling, you may have noticed that I’ve split up the artist index as well into several clumps of the alphabet, so hovering your mouse over the link in the top bar should bring up a drop-down menu with all the options, or, if you’re on a mobile device, pressing menu should have them all listed under the Lyrics Directory header. I remember back when I first started Deungdutjai and I had so few different artists that I could put them all as categories in the side bar and you wouldn’t be scrolling for the end of eternity hahaha. But now, I don’t know about you, but I was getting really annoyed any time I had to scroll down to the S’s or T’s or anything else at the end of the alphabet while on my mobile, so hopefully the splitting up into different sections will help to alleviate some of the scrolling so you can get to whatever you’re looking for more quickly~
Though that being said, that means there’s now no longer any excuse for y’all to be requesting multiple songs that have already been translated long ago! 😉 Remember, if you don’t know the artist but/or know the Thai title of the song, you can always paste it in the search bar with quotes and it will search the site for you and let you know if it exists already or not~ 😛 So don’t be lazy! 😉
But, finally! With that behind me, I can focus on bettering the other sections, namely the Artist Spotlights and Album Reviews, so~
I also want to make it more graphic-friendly and cheerful looking, so I will be drawing more chubby elephants~ 😀
Stay tuned for more! 🙂
Another thing!! I just want to say that I’ve noticed WordPress has started adding ads along the side bar over the bottom of pictures. Sorry ^^;; I have no control over ad placements since I am still on the free-hosted WordPress server, so they needed to add the ads to cover the cost of hosting the site, and they decide where they go. So currently I’m saving up my portions of the ad revenues to move to my own server so I’d have more control over the layout and site in general. So bare with me, know that it’s not me going crazy with ads, and know I won’t let it get any worse than this~
Thank you again for all your lovely comments and support!! I feel like I don’t say that enough, especially when I try to reply to every comment I get, but I get so many that sometimes some may fall through the cracks, so even if I don’t reply, know I do read every single comment and your words of encouragement do mean a lot~ <3
