TVCORC is the short name of The Vampire Coven Online Resource Centre, is an online resource centre or library of any artwork including drawings, paintings, digital arts and designs or any other kinds of creations, by the fans of Anne Rice. You can freely view or download all the resources.
Simple reason. The site owner, Jen, loves The Vampire Chronicles of Anne Rice after watching the movie of Interview With The Vampire. This movie makes her addicted to the world of the vampires and would like to do a website for them. And that comes with The Dark Heaven.
At the same time, many fansites of Anne Rice have been setup by other fans. she has come across many of them and found them very impressive no matter in terms of content or design. But as time passes, many of them have been left alone or even died out. Most of the valuable resources have been lost forever. It definitely is a pity.
So, she has an idea to setup a site to bring these resources together and provide a free place to all fans of Anne Rice to have their own exhibitions.
TVCORC was first created in 2006 or 2007, the exact time has already forgotten, by using Joomla. But the site owner, Jen, really did not like Joomla as the download engine since the admin interface was not good and it took time to manage so many files. The worst thing was that it was very hard to customize Joomla.
And unfortunately, all websites of Jen got hacked on 25 December 2008. It had taken her very long to resume some of the websites since there was no recent backup, so she needed to clean the files one by one. And she nearly had given up resuming TVCORC as she did not want to use Joomla again but could not find another good script to replace it.
In January 2010, one website owner, who has exchanged link with The Dark Heaven Network, asked Jen if TVCORC would be back or not. The first answer was no and that owner felt pity for the decision. But meanwhile Jen was still searching scripts online and luckily, she had come across a website that was doing the exact thing like TVCORC, but the theme of course was not Anne Rice. And she found that this site was using wordpress with a download plugin. As Jen was quite familiar with wordpress and the most important was there were many useful plugins for wordpress could be found, she decided to work on TVCORC again. After heavy customization for several weeks, a new TVCORC has been born, at last.
And in 2015, Jen has decided to switch web hosting and found that it was still difficult to handle all resources by wordpress in these years. For one moment, she has given up and closed TVCORC. But a second thought has come up, a blog script like wordpress is not suitable but a gallery script should be perfect since the main purpose is for all the fans to view and download the resources. After searching the internet, she has chosen Piwigo to build TVCORC again.
You can feel free to view or download all the resources. If you would like to publish your own work, you can use this form to upload or contact TVCORC at ranmajen=at=gmail=dot=com. All the services here are free of charge.
