Added venue reviews for 4 N.E. slam venues.

Added email notification for when a user gets a private message. I´m working on a way to make it optional. It´s not hard to add that feature, it´s just hard to make it efficient. I´m working on it.

More videos and web links were added.

I WISH TO GOD PEOPLE WOULD SUBMIT MORE VENUE REVIEWS!

I WISH MORE PEOPLE WOULD COMMENT ON POSTED ARTICLES AND USE THESE HERE BOARDS!

This is John testing as Dave. I added a bunch of themes and am changed the DEFAULT THEME. I think I can only ever type in caps though, so that makes everyone shout. i guess I´ll get used to it. I have a few mods and graphic tweeks to do and then it should be done.

hork.

The Nuke_eXtreme theme was casuing some slowness and weird font problems on macs, so I put the default site theme back to NukeNews. Of course I put an underscore between Nuke and News and caused the site to go down until I realized it. Sorry.

I fixed the journal comments features. They now should work. Test it out for me, would you?

Added a reader registry.

Added info headers to some of the topic pages. I should make it DB table driven, and I may someday.

Fixed "last 20 journals" feature when you first go to the journal link from the hom menu... etc.

In the past the jounral statistics wasn´t being updated with the lastest date/time, etc whenever a new journal entry was post.

When the day comes that there are 99,999,999,999 journal entries, I´m probably going to have to change the way I coded it.

Say la vee.

Changed main menu so it would have categories and hopefully people will find it a little easier to find what they want.

As always feedback of ideas and suggestions for change is wanted.

Changed the static URL´s for a bit. The archives are not working great, neither are the reviews.

Added a Want Ads section. Classified... you know. Its nothing that will replace Ebay, but books, CD´s and other stuff can certainly be posted there.

Upgraded the picture gallery (Got Pictures?)

I didn´t realize that the uploads of pictures weren´t working most of the time. I found a few pictures that made it to a holding area but never were added.

Anyway, if you think I rejected your uploads of pictures, try uploading them again.

Cleaned up the blocks on the site. Too many complaints about having to search for things. If everyone is in agreement I will leave the site design alone for the foreseeable future and refocus on content.

Added Poet Pages link to the Community group of the menu.

The site is back up. A company bought out the old hosting service and the quality of the service is going way way down - to the point a server restore that is totaly their fault - noting to do with this site at all - takes a week.

Grr.

Everything works again... and I mean everything.

Cosmetic changes are still going to occur, but everyone can log in again.

I also have a few spelling mistakes to correct...

like I said - cosmetic.

Peacey weecy,

I just coded page numbers for the site. No more messing with the archives...

Go to the index page and scroll all the way to the bottom. You'll see page numbers...

Click on a topic picture on a news article or choose a topic from the drop down at the top right of the web site. Scroll all the way down.

You're welcome.

I removed the page numbers from the main index page and kept them for the individual topics pges. Put the old articles back in place at the bottom of the index page.

You can still easily reread all of the Zero Point Zero articles, but the main page looks better to me now.

I'll stop obsessing one of these days.

Now to encourage and solicit authors to once again start adding content.

HORK!

I fixed the your_account section. It's now like it used to be - much better integration and I added a friend module. Sort of a poetry get together / dating but whatever module.

Basically, it's a friends list.

For people to be able to add you, you have to fill out some minimal information. Very few required fields, but there's a lot of info there.

I'm still working on the photo upload. It be broke.
