Technology Updates

Update: tsnX – (Mod CP, FAQ Editor, Extreme Styles) @ 100%

I managed, during lunch, to finish all three things: Moderator Control Panel, FAQ Editor, and eXtreme Styles modifications…and they were relatively easy to do. REALLY easy. So all the beta testers, go break what you can…so far, no one has broken anything…I need people to break stuff.

The only issue that I see, is not really an issue – but the extreme styles mod does not do what I thought it did. I thought it gave the user an easier way to change the style they’re using. However, instead it gives the admin an easier, or at least more control over, way to add/edit/delete themes to the site. I don’t know how much I’ll be using that, but I’ll give it a shot.

The Moderator CP shows a link at the bottom of the page for the Moderators to edit smilies, manage users, and some other things. If you’re a mod, reading this, go check it out. If you have not registered for the forums, go ahead and do that – it only takes a couple seconds, and you don’t even have to put in all your information.

And the FAQ editor is going to be nice. But getting people to read the FAQ instead of asking questions is going to be the next biggest marketing task, with the first being to get people back to the site.

Since I’ve finished all three of these, I’ll probably pick a couple things to do tonight. The Nerd Night at Neo’s though has moved to a tentative event…more details are needed.

I am a web programmer, system integrator, and photographer. I have been writing code since high school, when I had only a TI-83 calculator. I enjoy getting different systems to talk to each other, coming up with ways to mimic human processes using technology, and explaining how complicated things work.

Of my many blogs, this one is purely about the technology projects, ideas, and solutions that I have come across in my internet travels. It's also the place for technical updates related to my other sites that are part of The-Spot.Network.
