blog functionality

— 2:55 PM on July 23, 2006

I've started working on some of the code that drive the website. There's a fair amount of cruft that's built up over the years, and some serious spring cleaning to be done to make all the features of the site operate correctly. Updating a lot of older IE-specific javascript and getting the site to pass a validator are some longer term goals of mine.

In the short term a feature Scott's been asking for is staff blogs. Although the code fro the site may be sagging in places, the foundation is very solid. The engine that drives dynamic news content was very easy to extend to provide a basic blog facility for TR staff.

So here it is, I've hacked this together on a devlopment server and it seems to work. Here's hoping it's OK in prod... as long as this post doesn't show up on the front page I guess I'm in good shape.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
