Recently, I added some new features in my website for keeping my website safe and improving your browsing experience.

1. reCAPTCHA

I added Google’s reCAPTCHA to reduce spambots, because there are too many spam comments in my website and they have been deleted by my automated anti-spam system: Akismet.

When you comment, send messages or view my personal information, you need to solve the reCAPTCHA.

I have programming ability and I can write code with programming languages (e. g. HTML, JavaScript, Python, C++). View my Skills

You will see a reCAPTCHA tick box like this when you visit my personal information (e. g. my CV) previously, but I upgraded it to newest v3.

Upgrade reCAPTCHA from v3 to v3

Note: If you are in China and the reCAPTCHA widgets are not shown, don’t be hesitant to contact me.

This feature uses reCAPTCHA


2. Live Chat

I added a Live Chat feature which has provided by Purechat to let the viewers chat with me conveniently if they have some questions.

You can start a live chat by clicking the ‘Chat with Me’ banner at the bottom-right corner on my website.

3. New Domain Email System

I updated my email system on my website, you can send your email to me by using my domain.

Different email on my domain are used for different purposes.

The email addresses are not shown for anti-spam requirement. See my Contact page for more information.

Feel free to contact me! There is no penalty for sending your email to the incorrect address above. For example, a viewer sends his message about his questions to [email protected] But sending spam messages are prohibited.

This feature uses Zoho Mail


4. New Email Campaign

I started to use a new email campaign design for my blog’s subscribers. It works together with my new domain email system.

I used Mailchimp previously, but it only can manage 2,000 subscribers, so I used WordPress’s Email System.

If you want to subscribe to my blog, you can subscribe at the pop-up window or the subscribe widget on the sidebar.

This feature uses Jetpack


5. Bilingual Mode between English and Chinese-Simplified

I am going to give an opportunity to foreigners in China to practice Chinese, so I made my website bilingual between English and Chinese-Simplified. You can change the language at the top of my website.

6. Event Calendar

Event Calendar

From now on, I started to use event calendar on my website to let other know my events.

It will appear a calendar on the sidebar and a countdown clock on the home page.

7. Embed Map

Amap Embed on Website

I embed the map on my website to let people view where the place is. I use Amap because I want to show Chinese places and Google map has been blocked in China.

You can view the full/larger map on an Amap full page by clicking the link below the map.

I have strong programming ability with HTML, JavaScript and CSS, so I was able to do it.

This feature uses Amap (高德地图)
