Two Major New Features As of 5AM

BEST FEATURE - If you are logged in, every journal entry has a little pen next to the mail envelope that lets you updat ethat specific entry. It doesn't matter what moth you are on. This is a really handy feature and saves a bunch of time. However, you need ot be logged in to see the icon.

Also, I am starting a community upload section where other people can upload media for the site. I am starting out with start up sounds and banners for the top of the site. I really want to see one of the coop house!!

You can get to the community upload pages by clicking on the uploads link in the banner. It is red right now to notify that it is new.

UPDATE >> The email server is down today. I will post when it is back up.

More Updates

There are still more updates and many more to come. Today's list.

1. Email addresses now turn into email links - simply type them in your journal just as you would any other link. e.g. Sorry this took so long.

2. The main pages load much faster.

3. You can email a journal to anyone by clicking on the little envelope next to the journal and fillign out the little form.

4. The stars are finally fixed and reset at midnight instead of 3am.

5. There are now start-up sounds to the site. Whenever you sign on for the first time without shutting down your browser you will hear a (e:strip) startup noise. There will be a contest later this week to design the best sound so start thinking. It can be a .wav or .mp3 up to 15kb.

6. The logos are varied and random. Me and Mattehw made a bunch of them. There are many more to come, as well as, a user logo contest later next week.

7. It finally tells you when you are on a dated journal page. E.g. the title at the top says "Elmwood's journal from March, 2004"

8. As requested by falling4autumn, each front page now displays the last ten journals instea dof the last 30 days. This reduces load time but also, allows people who haven't updated in a while to have something.

More to come ...

Celebrate Good Times

This is a crazy optical illusion I made. It really looks like the letter "e" is moving but it is not.

Testing Time

Please test out the site and send me -> paul any bugs you find. I hope you'll enjoy it.

You now log on from any page and remain logged in till you log out.

The site should also be significantly faster.

Updates Continued

I am trying to get the site done so that the new version is easily and infinitly updateable. Unfortunately, I don' live by myself on an island and my roomates won't let me just continously work work work. Please stay tuned. Some features may not work yet. Many do. You definatly can update using your quickUpdate control panel. I believe the regular updat epage works as well. Have fun and thanks for your patience.

Still Updating

Sorry about all the construction. It should be finished soon. In the meantime you can still update. It will just look funky on the update page. It's best if you use the quickupdate link at the top. This will allow you to update in the little pop up window.

By the way if you want to check out my new example of using flash in a journal. Go to paul's journal and click on the oyster.

Mess Ups

The site looks messed up because I am changing it and I'm too tired to finish. It still works. Email me if you have any trouble.

I should be able to fix it tomorrow. Then matthew can do his photoshop magic. Sorry for he inconvenience. I realize there are a couple of serious graphical errors.

New Feature

For a pre v2.0 surprise I decided to let everyone have flash capability on their journals. I know its hard to keep up with so many features but . . . Depending on how it goes I will decide about its long term viability. Right now your .swf file will be required to be under 100k. They will also have to be formatted to fit 400 x 300 pixels. If not they will get auto reforatted to 400 x 300 pixels.

This should satisify most people need for interactivity, sounds and animation. I am also thinking about hosting a (e:strip) basic flash class over spring break one day.

To add flash to you journal, simply use the Flash upload form located under your journal publish form on your write page. Have fun.
