Feels good to have the community back online!
Well, that took a lot longer than I wanted it to. :/ It was much more difficult than I had hoped to upgrade things and iron out bugs and I know its probably still not exactly perfect. So, I want your feedback (leave a comment here.) Let me know if something doesn't work the way it used to (if you want it back.) Let me know If you'd still like something to change, I will let you know if it's possible. I will still be testing some things and tweaking once you all start coming back and using the site... It's easier to see how it's working when there is some activity.
You can now assign your blog entries to a category the same way you've been doing for Pictures. It is not required but it will make it easier for people looking for your deer bio or for your creative writing if you add it to a category.
post URLS are now by node/# and not the same as the title of your entry. This way you can edit the title and the url will not change. None of your previous posts urls should have been effected by this.
you can use more HTML tags now for formatting. I added IMG, blockquote, h1-h4, i, b, br, p, tt, pre and strike... more info here. If you don't know what i am talking about, you don't need it
I put in a hard coded limit of 1024 pixels across for images. Anything wider than that will be scaled down. And I hope that you will try to limit the size of your images as sometimes they get really huge and that is not so nice for browsing around. (And you can always put in a link to a larger version.)
I would like to implement some sort of personal tagging system, so you can organize your entries for yourself also, but that is a bit more complicated and will have to be for the next time I do some crazy upgrade adventure >}
I am also thinking we should have a selection of header images, maybe the site's color and theme should change seasonally. Maybe at the Equinox and Solstice... or something. Anyway, hope you guys like the "new" site!
all the best,
