(Another) Quick Blog Update


Bokay, time for a quick update on the blog (again). As you may have noticed things look familiar but at the same time, slightly different. That’s because I’ve changed the look of the blog and updated the code that runs it.

Let there be Lightbox!
Images now appear differently. To see what I mean, click the image below:

transparent

To close it, just click anywhere.

For it to work in all its glory, you need a thimbleful of patience and javascript. Wondering how to enable javascript in your browser?

Bored?
On the off chance that you visit the blog and are wracked with boredom, you can now alleviate it with a simple click!

random post bored

This is completely random and you can take the trip whenever and however many times you feel like it – the button is at the top right hand side of every page. Just remember that you’ll end up somewhere on the blog but where exactly you’ll never know until you arrive.

I suggest you pack a healthy lunch, just in case.

Archives
The archives have moved from the sidebar to the top menu. There’s quite a bit of material in there and now you can navigate it all chronologically by year and month.

New Sidebar
Unlike before, the new sidebar will remain active on all pages. So you’ll have the search, recent comments, etc. handy at all times.

Ye Quoteth
I enjoy reading your comments and I want to facilitate dialogue between others. In that regard you’ll find the most recent comments at the top right hand side of each and every page. Also, if you want to reply to a specific person, you can now quote them.

Beside every commenter’s name is a button that looks like this: quote click it and it will put that person’s comment inside the new comment field.

This saves you the hassle of copying and pasting or trying to reformat the text so it looks different from your response. You can also quote their whole comment or an excerpt by erasing the parts you don’t want.

That way, everyone will know who and what exactly you are responding to. Here’s an example of what it looks like to quote another comment.

That about covers it. There are also lots of other changes behind the scene that are meant to make things betterer but they are, well… behind the scene.

If you have a suggestion or a feature you’d like to see, drop me a note here.

Welcome and enjoy your stay :-)
