Today's Hot Wish or Complaint!:

Joey says… When new users link from their opening e-mail, it should prompt them and link them to create a password if they haven't yet done so.
Craig says…

Further Wishes and Complaints:

  • Magazine bar as undivided list of the ten most recent leads
  • You know what would be phat? A little designed box for "related content" to put at the bottom or side of any feature or post.
  • The entries section for multi-page content is fecked. We need a clearer interface for users to browse through dialogues. Some users are confused and don't know how to use entries. [Okay, so last fix didn't quite work out. But we were getting close. Ideas for new attempt at improving presentation of multi-part content?]
  • Change the color of recent posts font from gray to something else
  • Still some remaining goofiness with Internet Explorer. Our header space is weirdly two-tone, and each page renders with the far left margin cut off a bit. The top nav bar doesn't have drop-downs.
  • Still silly strings of spaces showing up at end of comments, like at this comment and the one above.
  • Let's see how the default tagline looks with ampersands replacing the "ands." The ands seem like info redundancy (I was just reading about information theory!).
  • Hey, why don't the heading tags work? Example, this page itself. "Today's Hot" and "Further Complaints" both have heading tags in the HTML, and the text shows up as such when you're editing the page with richtext. But they don't show up when published.
  • The Magazine column is dead-space right now. How can we use it?
  • The Recent Posts list is too short, white space below it.

Past Hot Wishes or Complaints:

Joey says…
Jewcy.com is still showing up as having referred people to us today in our referrers log, as well as on analytics. I'm pretty sure there's a googleable quick fix to this.
Craig says…
All right, I gave you what you wanted. Now every time you try to access an http://jewcy.com page it simply forwards to http://www.jewcy.com. NOW RELEASE MY FAMILY!
Joey says…
When people submit a private message, it gives them a blank page rather than a confirmation page. So they hit back and submit ten times. And they suffer. Confused. Uncertain. Did it go, or not?
Craig says…
The problem was the Subscriptions module. Upon upgrade, I disabled it and didn't re-enable it. I have done so now. I still think I'd like to remove the ability to subscribe to posts until it works the way I'd like it, however.
Joey says…
If a person posts anonymously, they still show up under authoring info and most recent comments thread.
Craig says…
Solved that problem. I eliminated the ability to post anonymously. We agreed on that a while ago, but apparently it came back.
Joey says…
Since Drupal update we once again have the option of replying to individual comments. Potentially problematic! for reasons discussed before.
Craig says…
Okay, did a modification to the comments module that oughta fix it right up…

 

Joey says… We need a "more posts" link, just do it to the blog page for now. And we need a "more Jewcy Voices" link to associated page. People are finding it Herculean task to get even recent content.
Craig says… I did it and you're ugly. I also fixed IE shit and removed it from the list. So eat a dick.
