First Update of 2006...

Yeah, more than two weeks without an update is more than a little lazy, but I was hacking away at the new eirtaku site.

And I've since made it obsolete, which is mildly irritating. I've just (hopefully fully) implemented php's mod_rewrite across the site with some help from d_fens. The URLs on the site will look nicer, be easier to remember and be better protected against certain forms of hack attacks.

I've also internally relocated the site; basically I've moved everything up into the main directory.
Any old links should still work if I've done my mod_rewrite homework correctly, I'm guessing some people won't even realize there's been a change in that department. Which means that there might be a better way to do it...

Oh and I just stuck it in a comment in the previous article, but I added BBCode and some smiley code for the craic. Regex is most fun.

Hmm, on to further bugtesting!

Seeing as I'm about to head off for the evening, happy new year all!

I've just written a BBCode function for the admin section, will have a simpler version for the comments section (for links, pretty much) and will likely write one for some smilies.

Some other little UI tweaks like the focus highlighting for the textarea and input tags, etc.

Have a craic'in night smile

That there is a single page on my site accounting for 200,000 hits a month, and is likely a reason for so many people just dropping into the main site out of general curiosity.

The stats program is a bit weak, but I figure this thread is responsible for a good deal of those hits smile

So hello to all the Gorillamask blow-ins who likely have absolutely no interest in this site. I'll try to make it more interesting wink

I've been working on the admin and posting side of things on the site, as well as fixing a few security flaws.

I've added the post editing function that I'd been meaning to, and generally given the posting interface more of a bulletin board type feel (though I've yet to add BB Code wink )

Changed the date formatting too, so things will look somewhat disparate in that department for a while unless I change all the older dates (which I might).

d_fens has been fiddling away with AJAX implementation on his site with great success, and I have yet to delve into phps mod_rewrite.

I've decided not to make the source of the site available as an installable content management system (yet). I don't want to release something half-assed.

I will, however, be starting to write the tutorials section shortly, detailing how the various parts of the site were developed. It's a labour of love, and still very much a work in progress.

I plan to begin professional contracting soon; I've been procrastinating over the rather simple process of registering a business name, so that needs to be worked out.

Oh and happy Christmas!
