Site Changes

By Pete | @kingpetey | 25 Jun 2002

So what are the main changed seen in the updated site? Well quite a few, the first thing you will notice is the front page as i have decided to scrap the into image page as it really wasn't needed. As soon as the front page as loaded you will notice changes to the left and side, the new articles section has been added which shows you the most recent 3 articles.

There is a handy link below for the older articles. Below this you can see the 3 most recent column posts and another handy link to the columns section. Further down the page still is the site news section which i have taken the bulky blue away from and now store things in a sql database instead of a text file. Other changes include updates to the navigation at the top of the page, updates to the admin section and updates to the way we store the columns.

Instead of each columner having their own table in the database all the columns are now stored in 1 table in the database. This make it possible to show the 3 most recent posts on the front page. We have also decided to scrap the site intro as no one has voluntered to keep it updated as rob as become a bit too inactive. If anyone wants to take this position then email me.

So why make these changes? Well as ImAFish is constantly changing and new features are being added, we felt that these changes would be useful and relatively easy to do. The changes shouldn't cause any problems to any of the other features on the site including the forum, email and the auction. If anyone would like to submit articles to the site we would be more then welcome to put them up for you. Pwhite
