there has been over and over again for the past years a bunch of confusion about IPFS and neocities. The blog post and user interface don't really make things much simpler.
If you know the basics of what IPFS is (kinda like bittorrent but the whole internet, not just certain files) then youre probably confused "where is my IPFS backup site:dunno:?"
Well, its actually on a button called "Archives" on your sites page :omg:k:
took me forever to actually find this for some reason, but yeah. It is right there on your sites page.
It is rather weird that the neocities interface doesnt actually have any way for you to search for sites BY NAME, and it also doesnt have a convenient way to get to your sites page. you can get there by going to a url like this:
yoursitesname is the same name as is used in your neocities.org subdomain.
this is also how you can find other peoples site pages and if they have archvies, view their site over IPFS. it is really silly that there isnt the above mentioned functionality but it seems that neocities' dev is awol.
so, i guess i thoguht i would just put this here for people who wonder about it! in my experience, the IPFS archiving works pretty great and is recovered really fast! im pretty impressed with it.
