- Jack Handy, Deep Thoughts
Last night I released the fourth alpha build of Bloo. It's had four downloads already (which always kinda amazes me - who's downloading this thing? Spambots?).
This was mainly a fix in response to problems discovered in Alpha testing - and I'm really grateful to my friend Jen for giving me webspace on her site and becoming an alpha tester because her version of PHP is newer and I found a deprecation problem there, and also found a problem related to how cookies were being handled on subdomained sites. Both of these problems are fixed.
In addition, a new extension called "PreviousPosts" was created - nifty sidebar snapon that shows the ten posts previous to your latest one. And, finally, I turned on email services for comments, so that when a Bloo blog gets a comment the author of the post gets an email. Basic stuff.
There are now four alpha testers (more on these awesome people later). I will be walking them through the look and feel section in a bit, as I'll need feedback on the very important (and darn risky!) philosophical bent that this software has toward how to modify the look of a blog.
In release five I hope to have a kaptcha (at the least) to combat spam. Spam demolishing and file uploading are two basic features still missing from Bloo.
Watch me for the changes . . .
