New Design Is Up
RWN has been redesigned and I think you’ll find there are quite a few improvements like…
— A search feature that will allow you to look for particular news posts.
— Archives by category.
— User/pass required to post in the comments section.
— A “retro” section where I’ll link older RWN articles that are still worth taking a look at it.
— The number of people who are currently viewing RWN is now displayed.
— We now have banner ads.
— Near the top of the page on the right, you’ll see rotating slogans.
— There is an RSS News feed now for people who want to syndicate RWN’s daily news.
— Furthermore, there are a lot of behind the scenes changes that were made that makes it much easier for me to input info into the page and check statistics on outgoing links.
All of that is in addition to the cleaner, more professional look of the page.
I’d like to thank Nicole Baker for putting all of this together. She is the most, professional, talented, & hard working web designer I’ve ever run across. I cannot tell you how fantastic it was to work with someone who is so good that she was literally able to write EVERY single script I asked her about. All I had to do was show her another page that had something I wanted or describe it for her and usually it was complete anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours later. If this post went 1000 words long, I could not say enough nice things about Nicole and the job she did in helping to put together RWN. Thank you sooooooooo much Nicole for the great work that you did.
Also, thanks to Ozrael Tom Conservative Vs. Amy The Ultra-Liberal Kitty Cat for helping to design part of the banner at the top of every page.
***Update***: Because my current host doesn’t handle MySQL as well as I’d like, I’m going to be changing hosts tonight. The root server should reflect the DNS change tonight at midnight, then it should propagate out to everyone’s ISP shortly afterwards. It’s always possible that could cause unforseen difficulties, but so far, so good.
