    Release Date: Unknown
    BoonTune is an upcoming fansite being developed and funded by me, Jordan. BoonTune will be the #1 hub for Boon's musical entertainment. While this is quite a bold statement, I feel it is an accurate one with the plans I have for the project.

    BoonTune is being developed on WordPress, an amazingly powerful and open source platform. It is easily the most popular Content Management System (CMS) to date.

    Our Planned Features:
    • Multi-Stream Radio Player
      When we have a steady bunch of users and demand, I intend to have three radio streams. #1 - Main music which will be popular music in the charts, though not strictly charts. This will not always be the case as they can book this for special shows where they can play whatever they want. #2 - Will be a singular genre stream, where the DJ can play his/hers chosen genre. #3 - A stream dedicated to trial DJ's so their friends can listen in. Trial DJ's will be able to stream on the main radio under supervision, but with this they can use it at will without having to worry about 'messing up.

    • Easy To Use Article Builder
      One of the things that limit fansites the most is it's generation of content. This can be due to a number of factors; demand, effort and technical know-how.. With most of them, to make an article you'll need to be pretty savy with HTML and CSS. We aim to remove that obstacle to our content authors by integrating an easy to use visual builder where no code is needed, it'll all be done for them but with the option to add additional code if needed too! We are very close to achieving this too!
    • Fast, Modern, To The Point
      Our design is aimed to be modern an simplistic. Too long have fansite's been using the same old and unresponsive designs. Our website is going to be built for every device* including mobiles!

    • Fun Goodies
      We plan to have things such as user image generators and other fun graphic tools! While we don't know how we would connect it to Boon (yet), it's certainly something to aim for! We also plan to do a sort of random giveaway feature to visitors on our website; they will be randomly triggered and the user will get a certain prize (such as in-game items).
      And More!

      I'm afraid we don't have much to show yet as a lot of it is still in development. However as the development progresses and something is completed I will post it here so you can track the progress.

    • Previews:

      Staff Login

      Recruitment:
      As we are not even half way done with the site we will not yet be recruiting DJ's, Article Writers, etc. We will before we launch, don't worry!

      We are however looking for development staff. If this seems like a project you my be interested in please send me a message! Some knowledge of HTML, CSS and if possible PHP will be required. Wordpress experience is desired, but certainly not required.

      Thanks,
      Jordan.

    I've tried and failed, but then again not much of a Habbo designer.

    Good luck with this

  12. Thank you!

    Development is continuing, though it has slowed down. I have a half term coming up in February so when I'm off from college I should be going through everything.

  18. Sorry for the late reply buddy. There's nothing wrong with WordPress, it has exactly what I need, saving me tons of time on coding an article system and more. Anything it doesn't have can be coded manually. All in all it's a fantastic platform to build any type of website on.

  21. Wordpress is an adequate platform for a fansite, if it's there to use and you can skin it then why not? It has an extensive plugin library and is easy to use.

    Other than that , sounds good and best of luck with it :)

  29. Totally, I've experimented with it myself and had some luck. The most efficient way would be to setup a plugin that syncs the two user databases. If a user is created on the Wordpress it is created on the CMS/Hotel. If a user is created on the CMS/Hotel it is created on the Wordpress. Best thing to do would be to have the base CMS hidden and have Wordpress as the default area for users.

  50. Just a bit of an update fellas:
    • We'll be changing the fansites name shortly, which will be announced when I have the domain.
    • Also looking into supporting adverts where people can pay in-game items that'll be used for the fansite in events. For example, the person will pay X for Y weeks advertisement on top advert banner. These will be restricted to Boon related only ads.
    • Looking into adding a jquery player, so when you load a page the music will not stop.
    • Social Media integration has been completed so users can comment using facebook, twitter or google+ - This is NOT a user system, as it is limited to commenting on articles only.

    Notice:

    Looking for Graphic Designers to assist me with the website, such as designing buttons, article images, logos and more! If you feel you're up for the challenge, please pop me a private message with your skype!

    As soon as we've gotten a better logo sorted, I'll be releasing some screenshots of the website design and backend.

    Thanks,
    Jordan.
