Future updates will be switched from this area to the "Forums" section to make it easier to comment back and forth. New topic added today under the "Website updates / changes / notices" section.

I did some messing around with the Public Diaries page today.

Now when you're reading someone's diary entries, there's a link at the bottom to load all of their entries if you're interested.

The "Recent Entries" and "New Members" sections from the homepage have also been added to the initial load of the Public Diaries page.

As always, let me know if something is behaving differently or something's not working correctly.

I wanted to send a comment to someone privately, but noticed that email addresses were no longer listed. I checked mine, because I didn't mind. Before, my email was listed but it no longer is. Have you deleted that option?

I really liked it because sometimes you want to comment on something that doesn't concern diet and you don't want to fill the space with non-diet issues.

Please advise. Thanks! Geevee

I'm going to be going through the files on the server over the next week or so and trying to clean things up to make my life a little easier. Let me know if anything stops working or is behaving differently.

Spent some time messing with a couple things on the site today. Added a couple features at the bottom of the homepage.

1. list of most recent diary entries with time / date 2. list of most recent new members who have entered at least one public entry

I tested it quickly, let me know if you have any problems with it.

Hey, great idea! You're doing a wonderful job here. If I don't talk to you before then, have a happy and safe holiday.

The site's new design was put in place a couple of months ago. Some of you who had bookmarks to some of the old pages other than the homepage may have been still using the old design layout. As of a couple of days ago the old layout has been replaced with pages that redirect you to the newly designed site.

Now that the newly designed website interface has been up and running for a little while, I'd like to get any suggestions that you might have for addition site modifications, additions, etc.

I've started a new topic in the forums and will leave it open for the next couple of months. If you're interested or have some suggestions, please go over to the "forums" and read them over / leave a suggestion.

Has anyone noticed a larger amount of downtime for the site over the past month or so? I try to check the site everyday and have run across 8 times in the past month that I've had problems accessing the website. I'm guessing that if I've caught 8 times in the last month, there's probably been quite a few more, unless it just starts having a problem the second I decide to check on it.

I don't know how long it was down tonight, but it took the hosting company close to an hour to get it back online, hopefully it wasn't down much more than that.

I love the hosting site's claim of 99.9% guaranteed uptime.

I couldn't get on yesterday afternoon for some reason . . . other than that I haven't really noticed any downtime.

Thanks for fixing the "comments" thing. Also the "notify of comments" emails.

I was still using the old format and now I can't access it. The one thing I liked about the other format was the narrower reading area. But it was probably too narrow. The new one changes with the browser size--which I like. Was just wondering if you could make the left border (comments) a little wider. Not a big deal.

Then there are a three things that don't reflect the old format and I didn't know if you meant to leave them off. One is the public email link for a person. The other is the measurements that used to show up. I know you don't have all the time in the world, but I just wanted to note what I noticed. Maybe you could make it so these could be some things we could change on our own profiles?

Thanks for all your work, I don't know what would have happened to the site if you hadn't taken it over. I for one am glad it's still intact!

In response to Biscottibody59's comments:

There is some fine tuning I'd like to do, like adjusting borders and other things like that.

I did purposely leave off some items like the user's public e-mail link and the additional measurements showing up. I'd love to have items like these user selectable from their own profile. Unfortunately there are 2 things standing in my way. #1 - lack of time. #2 - lack of knowledge. It's amazing how much time doing changes to the site takes. It took me well over 100 hours of work just to get the site look updated and to get everything working smoothly. Part of the amount of time is spent learning how different things communicate between each other. The site may look basic, but it's got a lot of things going under the hood.....HTML, Coldfusion, MySQL, MS SQL, PHP, etc. I'm not a web programmer or anything, so I just have to learn as I go with a lot of trial and error.

In all reality, I doubt that I'll get another chance to mess with things on the site until January.
