Trackback support

by on Jan.26, 2004, under Site Updates

Ok, I finally got trackback working smile It’s working pretty well at the moment. Took a bit of debugging, particularly since it doesn’t look like the pings that moveable type sends actually makes use of POST vars. But, we’ll see how well things work here later. It doesn’t do remote pings however. I’ll enable that later.

The fun part on all of this? I enabled trackback support in about three hours of late night coding. And yes, I’m completely and totally nuts. As a friend and I discussed.

god, you ARE smoking crack.

i had no idea you'd actually try to code it last night. crackhead.

yeah, i'd love to test it.  smile


Course, he did ask for people to enable it…

Yet another site update :)

by on Dec.07, 2003, under Site Updates

Ok, did yet another site update which most won’t notice. This is more on my administration end smile Basically, I’ve got an initial admin panel which allows me to add entries, delete entries, and delete comments as needed. Later, I’ll add support for banning a commentor based on ip address, filtering, etc. etc. BUT, pretty good as I didn’t have an admin panel at all when I started.

Ok, now the fun part – go back, update some code to allow different users their own “blog” system. This shouldn’t take too long, and once it’s done, a major segment of the code will be completed and operational. Then, it’ll be a matter of creating alternate “styles” for use, and letting people have the source code. Cheers!

We now have rss feed support!

by on Dec.04, 2003, under Site Updates

Ok, for all those who use rss feeders (and for those who don’t, you should consider it), look here:Salon article on RSS (subscription required). Also, look here for some more information: rss feed readers for windows. For my personal favorite on OS X, look here Net Newswire. There’s a free version without all the whistles and bells you can use.

RSS is a technology allowing “subscription” to a website giving you the latest updates to that website on a regular interval.

And, as always, drop me an email if you wish (and now comment as well) to let me know what ya think!

Updated site so comments work

by on Dec.03, 2003, under Site Updates

Well, we’ll see how this works smile I’ve updated the website to work with comments. Hopefully, it’ll work all well and sweet and stuff. Hmm, now lets see, add support for submitting articles instead of by hand and the code is getting much better. Then, I need a nice admin interface, multi-site support, etc. etc. etc…. smile

Anyways, please add some comments, test stuff out, let me know what ya think

Updated the site

by on Nov.11, 2003, under Site Updates

Ok, I’ve done a few updates. I’m still playing with the header though. Feel free to drop me an email, say what you think. I can be reached here: mcintosh_nospam_poetshome.com. A few of the updates to take a look at include the Poetry listing over on the left – feel free to drop me an email and comment on any of them smile

UPDATED – 11/11/2003 – Updated to use a php and mysql system. Feel free to email me if you’d like a copy of the code, under the GPL license. It’s no where near complete, as I’m aiming for a full BLOG system.
