I’m using a somewhat old plugin (it hasn’t been updated since ’09) called Popularity Contest to show the popularity of my posts. However, I noticed that it was breaking my RSS feed. This is due to the fact that the plugin doesn’t properly escape the ampersand character inside an image URL. Instead of & it…
Journal Entries partially working and Comments!
Guess what! You can add comments now too… muahahaha. Erm. Yeah. I’m going to make a pretty page from where I can submit journal entries. Well, quick and dirty first. Then the pretty version will come later. Finally… something functional on this website. It’s been about three months, but I finally have something here. I’m…
Journal Entry Display Template
Ok so I’m writing some stuff here… just to make it look like I have something… I’m figuring out the layout right now… so… blah de blah de blah. I need to write enough to make this look long enough. Like a normal journal entry. So… blah de blah de blah blah. Hmm… I think…
Photo Album Complete
After 3 years of empty promises, my pictures are finally on the website. You can track all of my promises through these journal entries… but anyway, it’s all done now! Ahhh… It feels good. The thumbnails will take a little time to load… that’s because it’s generating the file on the server – dynamically. I’m…
User authentication complete
The website authenticates users now. If you try to log into any restricted areas, you are presented with an intimidating, yet helpful message which informs you that you have insufficient privileges. Now I actually need to add stuff to the User Tools page… I probably should make an Add New Users tool… certainly beats manually…
I’m creating a User Page where users will be able to log in. I’ll be adding other features to the page later on, but for now it will only log you into the site.
Photo Album access rights
Exclusive Albums will no longer appear in the Album List. That makes the “Exclusive” column redundant. I’m too lazy the change it though.
Photo Album up and running
The Photo Album is complete. I’d say 95%… I’m still implementing access rights and privileges. Essentially people won’t be able to see all the pictures I have. I’m keeping certain pictures private or viewable only by certain people. Anyway, go ahead and take a look.
Waste of time
I wasted about an hour trying to track down a problem in my encryption algorithm. I still can’t find it! Right now I’m using a crude hack to fix the problem. It fixes it… and works about 99% of the time. I have another idea though… hmm… Anyway, Photo Album should be up and running…
Photo Album nearing completion
I have been able to generate thumbnails. All I need to do now is spawn a window with a larger version of the image… that and a few cosmetic aspects. Like how the colour fades in and out? Pretty neat huh? 🙂
