I finally have managed to take the time and update the site code to Slashcode 2.2.5. What was holding me back was the fact that they changed the templates, which give the look and feel, and I remember how long it took me to to create them in the first place. Fortunately the changes were relatively minor, and even those that changed still had some compatibility so I could cut and paste. Read More to find out what’s new.
Update: Of course, you can only see the changes when the internet connection is up. Not sure what the instability is yet.
Well, first and foremost the bug that prevented people from going back more than 30 stories from the “Older Stories” is fixed. That annoyed me to no end, but I didn’t have the knowledge or time to fix it.
There are also new Journal and Messsages systems for users. I’m not sure if they’ll remain – it will depend on usage.
Most visibly, the last three topics will have their icons at the top of the page, ala Slashdot. I cut it from 5 to 3 because of space.
