So I missed last week's Mistress Monday.... well I didn't... but the update was basically just a scream in frustration as php/mysql poured on top of me in a most suffocating manner. This week things are MUCH more optimistic... and in celebration I'm moving my Monday updates to right here on our new beta site. Spread the word.
Last night a blow was struck towards the multisite login issue that was plaguing us. Huzzah!
Thanks for being patient with the login issue here. Things were behaving strangely between my local test server and the live version here. As it turns out PHP Versions are much like bras... you don't realize how important the correct size is until you get the right one. Who knew?
Be good girls... get rid of the cookies and clean your cache... hygiene is important.
I've been doing battle with the cookie monster this week. Still haven't gotten it to do what I want it to, yet... but in the meantime, there may be some login problems. Eat your cookies and clean your cache. That is all.
I've been struggling with this for 8 @#(%*@#*% hours. The multisite component of this new system almost works. Like seriously... it ALMOST works. But the little things are getting in the way. I've got a multisite environment set up and it works fantastic... EXCEPT the avatar system... I've almost got a multicharacter choice system set up... and it works great... EXCEPT.. I can't get the rule system to successfully create a private taxonomy per player. The list goes on. 8 hours of almost getting things to work... but nothing does.... AHHHHHHH!
So here I am on a Friday night (ok ok... so it's Saturday morning) and I'm going to poke at this quote thing that Tina's griping about. **Blame her that I'm working on this and not the forums. :D)**
So this is a regular quote
The Supreme (and yet humble) Goddess
This is a named quote
So I've installed what I view to be one of the better WYSIWYG editors. It's small, doesn't impact performance... and allows for a preview.
So overall I feel like beta for this site has been fairly successful. We're squashing bugs and giving me lots of feedback as I press on designing the first of the roleplaying areas of the new site. The one thing I'm NOT happy with are the way captions are displayed. I like the list of captions... I like how it's organized. I like the ability to define with tags and sort with them.
Well we had our first crash. Yay. And with it an opportunity to expand our server capabilities a little.
While poking around here though I've found a number of features that I really like from this new software. I thought I'd list a few of the ones I like, in case you haven't found them yet. I'd also like to hear what features all of you have found, enjoy, and / or would like to know more about.
The first for me is 'permalink'.
The software is up and functioning for the core of LIL. Report your bugs and thoughts in the comments.
TO DO LIST:
- Captions need to pop out and become larger when clicked
- Lissa Stories need to be added
- Swimming in the Pool needs to be added
Look at everything... so squeaky clean and pretty...
Ok... now tear it all up. Let's try to break this bitch.
