Recent Site Upgrades

Search
Over the weekend, I brought a few search tools, that I'd been working on for a while, to the point where people can get some use out of them ...
The "contact" link on the menu bar has been replaced with a "search" button.
The site-wide search uses DuckDuckGo, which is a very privacy-oriented search engine.
The accuracy of the search results seem to be getting better-and-better, the more it gets used.

The two search boxes below, search within the titles and contents, respectively, of the site's database.  Currently, it returns news and version history results, but this will be subject to change as part of a larger overhaul of the news subsystem.

There is also a link to the SFXB Forum's advanced search page.

Initially, I planned to build the search features more specifically into the news module, but it works better to have the search functionality together and accessible on the main menu.


Navigation   [ 2021.03.12 | 18:31 ]
I improved the navigation for the News/CMS subsystem and added a way for people to 'like' anything that they come across.

At one time, the system did originally have a commenting system, which worked quite well but it was disabled because moderating the comments created quite a bit of overhead.


Image Upload   [ 2021.03.09 | 16:46 ]
Behind the scenes, I added an image uploader and resizer, to make adding site updates quicker and easier and to get away from the problem of linking to content in the site's main content directories, where the file and directory paths can sometimes be subject to change.


Next Episode ...
Lastly, I finally binned my facebook account. If you'd like to contact me to make any suggestions about the site, don't hesitate. Use the link over on the right.
Alternatively, drop us a line on the SFXB Forum.

I have a mountain of new stuff to share on the site.
Over the next few weeks, I'll be tidying a few things up and trying to get those added.
Then I'll be going back to the game itself to see if we can finally get that finished.
