New CMS and content

Post by Kaylee » Sun Jun 02, 2013 12:58 pm

I've managed to script an import of all our comic reviews. They may need a little checking and tidying, though.

I'll work on bringing the interviews over sometime this week.

Would anyone like access to the CMS so that they can start editing, writing reviews or creating other content?

I would love to write some reviews. No paying gig for it at the moment, and I need to keep the skills sharp.

Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

FYI I've finished v3 of the board and it'll go live later today. By 'finished', I mean that I did 99% of it about 3 months ago and I've been doing other stuff (working, sleeping, getting fat, buying clothes etc) since.

As a result, I think it includes virtually no suggestions made any later than around June! Hopefully in the next update, though :)

That should be sometime before Christmas.

Yay Karlness! Was wondering where you were madam.

btw, the front page seems to have gone a bit decepticon coloured - was that the plan? I appreciate it is already Decepticon motifed.

There is also a build notifier of some kind at the foot of the page which is more g2 in styling.

Cheers :)

Yeah, I thought I'd better show myself just to prove I was still around :)

I'm in the process of tidying up the articles in the CMS. I had planned to reimport them programatically, but I think it's just easier to tidy them up by hand.

The homepage is still a bit of a state... I'm just not sure what to do with it! Any ideas?

Not only do I have 0 issues with that, I'm slightly aroused at the idea.

FYI there will also be a (veery small) release tonight to upgrade the phpBB version (it's going up by a whole 0.1!).

I anticipate no downtime/noticeable effects.

I just discovered by accidentally clicking the link that our illustrious old interviews aren't on the site. Can we get those up?
