Followed a nice tutorial heregenerating verification system for posts.

This should be pretty much bulletproof protection against spammy bot comments!

Err, realized there that I never had the the CSS for the site verified.

Well, all done now and added to the credits at the end of the menu.

I wrote a simple (but ugly to the naked browser) RSS feed for the sites artcles.

I'm using Beta 1 of Firefox 1.5 and for some reason the feed icons no longer display in the bottom corner, though it should be viewable to anyone using any of the 1.0x releases.

I also added a link to the end of the menu under the XHTML one for feed validation.

The RSS feed is at http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~cult/site/rss.php.
*sigh* writing up the instructions for this site is going to be fun...

Rearranged code

Having to pass default parameters to article.php (the previous name of the main article management file) was becoming annoying.

It's not that it was difficult to do, it just looked damn ugly in the address bar. Seeing as forums and other similar sites pass default parameters all the time I figured I was missing something simple - which I was.

I just had another look at the code there; I just merged two if statements together and switched the order in which the file looks for passed parameters.

I renamed the file index.php too for the original reason that it looks cleaner. Arguments can be passed simply as "/~cult/site/?parameter=value" now.

Fix for bad comments

I'm using a very basic image verification system for posts.

The smart bots may be able to circumvent it because I haven't made it a randomly generated image yet, (that's the next step!), but normal stupid bots won't be able to get around it, so hopefully that'll cull the spam tide.
