Some Grail Upgrades

Had a few minutes downtime tonight, as I implemented a number of changes to the look of the site, and also some new queries to the database (e.g. at the bottom of the front page, instead of ‘Most Popular Blogs’ we now have “Recent Comments”). Let me know if anything is broken (or if things look wonderfully shiny…a little bit of positivity goes a long way) – keep in mind you may need a SHIFT-REFRESH/RELOAD to clear your browser’s cache and see the changes to the site. Plenty of other things being worked on as well, including the long-promised black theme, and more functionality/fun, so stand by (they’ll be implemented as spare time allows over coming days/weeks).

  1. Challenged by the electronic age
    I recall once trying to upgrade from WordPress to Joomla…

    My blog was down for a week and I lost both over 700 comments spread over 150 articles in the effort. From that, I realized that while I may be worldly, I am certainly not a cyber creature.

    In fact, I still have issues with my cell phone.

  2. Looking smart
    Amazing what a few tweaks can do. The grey page background makes it much easier on the eyes.

    Keep it up. Looking forward to the new functionality.

    Incidentally, what’s the best way to explore tags?

    1. Tags

      Yeah, they aren’t really tags – they are just the category (Drupalese: taxonomy/vocabulary) that the story is posted under. Tags is another thing I could look at integrating – my whiteboard is rather full though, and time limited! 😉

      Thanks for the positive feedback, nice to hear after a lot of hours retouching lots of little things.

      1. Big improvement on white
        Yes, the new background does look easier – but – I’m still waiting hopefully for the black one.

        Are we going to get a “members on line” and “who’s new” list back please? I miss them very much.

        Have to say – smart as it may be – I still prefer the original look that TDG had (and the layout).

        As requested, I’m being patient (just!).

        Regards, Kathrinn

      2. Double login?
        This isn’t really to do with the upgrade but I thought it might have been fixed during the update: I still have to login twice. Once on the front page then again if I click on the Recent Posts tab.

        Is that something only I am experiencing? It has been the case for a long time.

        Dave.

          Same issue here. It’s like there is a division between the main grail and the Recent Posts that most be negotiated like a checkpoint or something.

          Not that I mind showing my ID/passport when asked, mind you… the guards are really quite nice and there’s always coffee in the lobby 😉
