I just released a new version of the RN Video module to address the deprecation of the Youtube api v2. Youtube requires authenication, a developer key and has a quota with their v3 api as well as other changes which made me switch to Vimeo's api with still allows you to pull videos from their feed.

I will be moving all the files from TrickedOutNews for RavenNuke to Sourceforge to archive them and allow anyone to have access to them as we move to RavenCMS when it is released. They can be found here:

I know it has been a while since I have posted anything to the site. I have been extremely busy and kind of burnt out. I have started working on some of the modules offered on this site to be RavenCMS compatible. The new responsive themes and other features to RavenCMS are exciting. I am including some screen shots of the RN_Gallery which is a Picasa/Google+ gallery for your site. I have also been working on the RN Video module as well. They are both fully responsive and Bootstrap ready.

I am testing a new Anti Spam bot script from coRpSE over at that has several different approaches to combat auto register script from hitting RavenNuke sites. I wanted to give him a shout out and say thank you for developing this script that will be a huge help to the entire RN community. If you have any issues registering on this site, feel free to comment on this article or email me.

I have updated the RN Etsy module v2. I noticed a bug in the display limit not being respected. That has been fixed and I also changed the api url to use the https url and increased the cache time to 3 hours. The cache time can be increased to store the data for a longer period of time if you want it. Etsy only allows 10 requests on their api per second which can cause issues if you have a large shop with a lot of items displayed in the module. Switching to the https allows you to request more than the standard 10 per second from Etsy if needed. I have also added a config option to delay the json requests for .15 seconds to keep you under the 10 per second if needed. By default it is off. This can slow down the module if you have a large number of display items.

I am testing a new anti-spam system on this site. It is designed to catch link spammers in the sites profile. It is set to catch spammers in the signature, user website, extra info and interests fields. If you accidentally get banned, I will restore your account asap. Thanks.

I have released a second version of the RN Video module. This module uses a users YouTube feed to display the videos in your site. This latest release has some code cleanup and pagination added. By default, this module will display 5 videos per page. This is easily modified in the modules index file.

For those of you who do not know what is, it is a website that helps people sell their handmade crafts. It's the 45th most popular site in the US and globally it is 152nd. I have been working on a module for users to be able to display their products in RavenNuke. I am just curious as to how many people actually have or plan to have an Etsy store. Would this module be useful to people or just a waste of time and energy on my part? Demo

I have added a couple of new downloads over the last few days. One is an update of the RN Photowall module. It has updated javascript and a few new features too. The second one is the RN Pinterest module which allows you to display your Pinterest photos in your RavenNuke site. Several new forum mods have been added to the fourms as well as 2 new blocks for the RN Gallery module. Enjoy.

Sorry for being away for so long. My youngest son just graduated boot camp and has been on a 10 day leave before he had to go to Marine Combat Training for the next 22 days. I have been spending as much time as I could with him. I took 2 weeks of vacation so I could go to his graduation and be with him while he was home. I am still trying to get back in the swing of things.
