xBlogPro Beta

Wednesday, February 18, 2004 at 4:53 pm | Comments off

I finally have xBlogPro running well enough that I feel I can start using it on this site as a beta. If you come across any errors or bugs, I'd appreciate it if you'd be so kind as to let me know about them. For now, just contact me through the contact form that is available, though I do hope to eventually provide a link to report a bug, which will allow you to do so more easily.

While I'm sure there'll be bugs here are there, I hope they will be minimal and I will do my best to fix any that arise as soon as possible. There are many new features that I'm sure you will all enjoy - most notably, perhaps, is the preview option. It was long overdue, and even requested by some of you. Also, you may now subscribe your email to the comments that you post in, which will allow you to easily know if someone has posted back. I'm hoping you'll find that to be a useful feature, though you don't have to use it, of course.

I've done my best to port all of the old content over to this new system. There may be minor formatting differences, but to my knowledge, none of the content has been lost. Both entries and comments have been moved over.

This, of course, is why the site was down for around 2 hours this afternoon. That time allowed me to upgrade the entire backend of the site and get the new system up and running. I ran across minor glitches due to differences in the way PHP is running on this server and my testing server, but have hopefully found most of them. Please bare with me, as this new system is tested out.

So, let me know what you think. Like it or dislike it?

Don't know yet, but the e-mail system could be abused since William might get sent email notification for new comments.

Thanks for reminding me of that, Robert. I've now implemented a email verification system, to ensure that users who want to receive notifications are using their own email addresses.

Ryan, this is a test posting with Firefox - to see if the disappearing trick reoccurs.
