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.

Just a suggestion:
If you bookmark the site, I'd suggest only bookmarking the main page at: www.dietdiaries.com
The other pages / directories might be changing over the next while, depending on if the site switches servers or something else like that. The homepage will always be adjusted to point to the correct place.
Again, it's just a suggestion and feel free to do whatever you want.

The site's new design was put in place today.

One more annoyance down - I finally figured out how to make it correctly show "read comments" or "no comments" in the Public Diaries section.

Alright, I've been working at getting all of the pages transformed. It's early in the morning and I'm exhausted. I think I've got all of the links and pages working on the redesigned portion of the site.
The only non-working thing that I know of is if you're using the Opera browser or an old version of Internet Explorer. If you're using Opera or an old version of Internet Explorer, the "forums" section will not show up correctly. I've tested it on the newer versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox. I don't have access to any Apple or Linux browsers, so let me know how it shows up if you have one of those.
I think that I've also corrected the e-mail notification for when someone leaves a comment on one of your entries.
If you have some spare time, please try out the new design and let me know if you find anything not working correctly. If I don't hear of too many things needing to be corrected, I may change the site over sometime this weekend.

I was about 75% of the way through redesigning the pages when I ran into some problems interfacing some stuff with the way I was laying out the pages. I couldn't find a workaround, so I spent most of today trying to re-do all of the pages again. The look isn't different, but the structure is. As you can see on the old site, some more of the CSS things have changed. Hopefully I won't be running into any more major roadblocks and will get this done some time soon.
The new design is viewable at www.dietdiaries.com/2005/index.cfm. It has some non-working links, but if you'd like to help test it out, please feel free.

I put a little more time in today on the facelift for the site. Got the database connection working a little better. Have most of the "your diary" and "public diaries" pages working correctly as long as you already signed in on the old site. The "forums" page is up and running. Headlines on the homepage are being pulled from Google News.
I still need to work on the logging-in, bio, and account management pages. There's probably several more that I'm not remembering off the top of my head. Should be able to work on them over the next little bit.
The new design is viewable at www.dietdiaries.com/2005/index.cfm. It has some non-working links, but if you'd like to help test it out, please feel free. If you find additional non-working pages that I've missed, please post a comment to let me know.

I've been messing around with the new design / facelift for the site. Unfortunately I tied the old and new designs to the same style sheets, so you may be seeing some different colors on the old site over the next while.
The new design is viewable at www.dietdiaries.com/2005/index.cfm. It has very few things working, but if you're bored / interested, feel free to check it out.
