If you are seeing this post, it means you’ve been properly redirect to our new server, and our new WordPress blog! I have done it all by myself, and boy – was it a hell ride. After two weeks of 20 hour work days, 100 packs of Marlboro (you shouldn’t smoke), and 1 gallon of coffee, the results are finally here. Offcourse, there are still some minor things I need to do manually, like inserting Youtube videos, updating flash animations and assigning categories to each individual post, but this should all be done before the following week ends!

I still need a little help from your guys. What I need from you, is following – please report :

  • all the broken links you encounter
  • all the broken pages
  • missing pictures (X images)
  • if your widgets are working properly
  • have the widgets properly brought you here?
  • are you still seeing the old website?
  • anything you think might be important, errors, problems, etc…

To keep you entertained, here are some goodies I have implemented to this new site:

  • you can now rate all the posts (inside each post), so go on – rate all your favorite illusions! later we will add top illusions page, where all the best stuff will be shown, based on top ratings
  • you can now comment with your Facebook login, your new comments can optionally (if you approve) be seen to your friends in Facebok feed – try it, and please report if it worked for you
  • check the archives, and search! you will see how good the results appear ;)

And now for today’s illusion. Just to test if the image appeared in your widgets, gadgets and stuff…

    i have the widget on my mac, and for some reason, upon clicking on it i was lead to
    http://damnthatsawesome.com/drive-through-tesco’s/

  • Tom

    Widget not working taking me to some random site http://damnthatsawesome.com/drive-through-tesco’s/
    Currently on a mac running osx
    Just thought I’d let you know

  • Denise

    Your widget didn’t work. (I have the newest version.) I noticed it was blank, clicked on it and it took me to a different website! Sent me here: http://damnthatsawesome.com/drive-through-tesco%E2%80%99s/

    Not sure how that happened.

    Nice illusion.

  • Vurdlak

    hi, don’t worry just yet. I’ve made the switch few minutes ago, so it takes few hours for feed to catch the new domain settings :)

    by monday afternoon, all should be smooth (I hope!)

  • Pattie Roberts

    Things seem to be working for me here, I am looking forward to more of your illusions. they are really great. Patti

  • Vicki

    Ok if you say so :)

  • koolness

    I don’t like the new thing with putting in your name and email to comment. Can you change it back to the one that you put in a name and typed in the security code? will my email be displayed? I guess I’ll find out…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Vurdlak-Peric/732524155 Vurdlak Peric

    don’t worry kolness, the email field is there just to replace security code. your emial is nowhere shown, and protected ;)

    btw, please people test this facebook commenting. I’m doing one just now ;) hope it works!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Vurdlak-Peric/732524155 Vurdlak Peric

    yup! facebook comments work flawlesly :)

  • Meg

    Everything seems to be working great! The only thing I see for improvement would be at the top: there’s two “about” tabs, and they both pages say “This is an example of a WordPress page . . .” I don’t think you want this! But great transition overall!

  • Cara

    The igoogle page widget image is not working. I am also directed to the page everyone had reported, but the link at the top (with the title) does take you to the new page.

  • Denise

    Widget is working now and clicking on it brought me to your site!! Yay!

  • Pia

    Hi!! Two things,, I was reading the comments and the time and date appear to be like, june 1,2009, at 1.40 am at 2something am, at 3 freaking am!!! Is it because i’m in the us or what?? The reason takes me to point two, being 10.23 pm may 30, 2009 eastern time in america, the widget first took me to http://damnthatsawesome.com/drive-through-tesco’s/ …..sooo that’s it…. and youu need to rest and exercise for all the sh&t you got into ur body….byeee =)

  • Pia

    OHH, u dont have to post this,, im in vista btw.

  • Rodrigo

    Everything is working fine. Congratulations!

  • J

    I think the timestamps are messed up… set it to auto-allocating, or GMT at least! Stupid Americans…

  • Dave

    Facebook widget is also directing to this site:

  • Bri

    Whats with the two “about” links at the top?

  • Bri

    The “Show/Hide The Illusion” link on this page does not work. http://www.moillusions.com/2009/05/cats-and-dogs-illusion.html

  • michael

    It worked for me I have windows vista

  • Pascale Fortin

    I really like the new blog! Everything works fine with google widget.

  • Pascale

    Oh and yeah!!!!! Posts are shown live!!! Great!!!

  • Pascale

    Oh no… I got that one wrong… too bad, it would have been great!

  • Alex

    There are two ‘about’ links in the toolbar at the top alongside ‘home and ‘random illusion’.

    I like the new layout, cool.

    Thanks

  • Sammi

    Google widget took me to the damnthatsawesome link

  • Dokov

    Hi,

    In main page, with all the posts, u can see all of the images inside the posts, and the show/hide solution button doesn’t work. Great site btw! ive been following it since 2007!!!

    Hey! I’m glad you made it! I don’t use any widgets nor Facebook, but i just wanted to congratulate you for the successful move :)

    No need to say how big fan i am, since i visit the site every day (must say i get a little angry when you are late on posting new illusions :p)!!

    Keep improving Vurdlak!

  • Facebook User

    There are 10 non-MOIllusions posts in the RSS feed, I would imagine that’s what’s affecting the gadgets?

  • Phil

    the igoogle widgit seems to be working fine for me! pic displayed fine and took me to this page directly :)

  • Daisy Urso

    Working well here! Yahoo widget is showing as usual. Great job Vurdlak!

  • Alex

    Oh dear, earlier today my igoogle gadget successfully led me too the new MOI page, but now it has stopped working.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Elana-Levin-Schtulberg/577555102 Elana Levin Schtulberg

    I use the igoogle widget on a vista, and all appears to working well

    Nice one :)

  • Franx

    Hey, Vurdlak! Congrats on the new site! My Vista widget is working perfectly, didn’t take me to any drive thru damn cool thing. Didn’t test the iGoogle one, though, will later. Once again, congrats!
    Auguri dall’Italia!!!
    Cheers!

    nice work Vurdlak! using IE8 on XP x64, iGoogle widget brought me straight here, and the facebook login seems sweet as a nut. Maybe you’ll get some more traffic when people see this post in my FB feed?!

  • Kevin

    I agree with pia, the times are all wrong from what I can see. I am posting this at 9:43 AM in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Same time zone as the state of New York.

  • Kevin

    It shows on my computer that I posted at 3:43 pm instead of the time I posted. Why??

    I like how your comment is visible immediatly but says awaiting moderation.

    If you miss entering a required field while posting, and you use the back button (as stated) to get back to the form, you lose what you typed.

  • FaQ

    Wonderful website. I use the iGoogle gadget, and it brought me here directly. I see no flaws other than the ones prevoius post-ers have mentioned, but if I find any discrepancies, I’ll be sure to let you know.

    So, to the illusion…what exactly are we supposed to be looking for? I don’t get this illusion you posted. Explanation, anyone?

  • FaQ

    OH! It took me some time…I just got it! The two brains…they look like boxing gloves. Hahaha this one just tickles my funny bone. =)

    Think the rating is a great idea!

    Will do all i can to help improve site.

  • HEY!

    Website is great! nice illusion :)

  • Anonymous

    The Vista gadget works fine. I miss easy anonymous comments, though. And yes, I do miss the random illusion button. Also, is there a way to access the old page, if only for kicks?

  • Anonymous

    nvm. the button just showed up

  • Cameron Kuhn
