Site Updates: May 2008

The observant among you may notice some changes. They're not immediately noticeable unless you make use of the sidebar. I've added a recent images section which shows the last 5 images posted to the gallery. The link right above that box will display an expanded view of the last 50 images posted to the gallery. I have a tendency to post images in large batches which make both the box and the RSS feed less than useful sometimes.

I've also added a folder link under each image to go with the prev/next nav links I put in earlier. Eagle eyed observers will also note that gallery images now have comment support. It's fully functional, and yes, it's spam protected. No funny ideas now!

I'm planning to extend the navigation aids to the downloads area along with comment support there. But that section of the site is even less priority right now.

As for Sandbox itself, there has been a general lack of interest shown. So development is more or less beholden to what this blog needs. If I don't need it, it isn't in the public base either. However I am planning on issuing a 2.0 release after I get the download support finished along with a tweak to the archive links at the bottom of the sidebar. This will include upgrading the skin. What few people have used Sandbox have all commented on how terrible the supplied layout is. So with that in mind I'm going to port the skin from here to the color scheme Kiasyn set the default skin to and go from there. I highly doubt it's going to change anything as far as interest, but you never know.

So if you have any ideas on what could improve the software, your window of opportunity is open for however long that may be. Dwip, Whir, this is especially appropriate for you since it's your ideas I've been implementing lately :)

Well. I guess that's that then.

*shrug* I'd posted my ideas to Sandbox forums/bug tracker site already for the most part.
