New Features For Site

If you can read this, I guess that means my new admin page for blog creation is working properly 🙂

I’ve still been pounding away at the back end so you likely haven’t noticed too much new.  The “Forward to a Friend” feature is now working on the image details page, as well as the “Contact Us” page.  The privacy policy page exists right now but the content solely consists of a “Coming Soon” header.

I implemented a captcha for the “Contact Us” form to try and cut down on spam.  Now that the Catpcha is working (and no longer case sensitive) I’m going to add it in to the “Forward to a Friend” page as well.  And of course, there’s a new admin page that will allow me to create and edit blog entries.  The only way that really affects the users is that the content will get updated more frequently.  The way I figure it is if you make an easy to use program/site there won’t be any valid excuse not to upload new content. LOL

I do eventually want to do a slideshow and a “Show High Res” feature, I just first have to figure out how it will function and look.  I did get around to the forward and next buttons on the image detail page so you don’t have to keep going back to the gallery to select the next image.

As some of you may know, my goal was to get this new skin up and running before “Metahumans vs the Undead” came out.  And that oops that I had a week ago where this new site got launched accidentally actually worked out in my favour.  “Metahumans vs the Undead” is now available for download on your ereader.  (The print version should be available shortly)  Rest assured once I get more information for that, I’ll post it here.

This also means I have to finesse the back end of the “Series Overview” and book detail page so it can work with short stories.  Right now it’s database driven which is good, but doesn’t allow for any literature TYPES at all.  Or any external links to where they’re available.  So in the meantime I’ll just leave the link here on the main page until I fix those couple of pages.

Once again I want to extend my thanks to my friends and family who have supported me through these many long year when I first embarked on this writing journey.  And of course, a special thanks to Coscom Entertainment for picking up my story.  It adds credibility to me as an author (in my mind anyway) and makes me feel like Nightcat is that much more real to me.
