There's a lot wrong with it and we're still experimenting, and it won't go live officially for another two weeks or so after an expert has knocked it properly into shape. But if you want to take a look and offer any suggestions here, that'd be very nice of you. Plus as part of our testing we are posting some stuff that you might like to read. You get it first!

:D

Already spotted and linked back to - you can't put much past a blogging addict, y'know, they'll spot your incoming links a mile away! :)

Nice. Very nice. And that mundane business better not be a mock-up item 'cos I'll look like a right fool when I submit something.

I'll look even sillier for having blogged about it already ... ;)

I know it's still under devolpment, but my partner (also a web designer) always asks for this:

Running Firefox on Windows XP at 1152*864;
No major display problems, all links, images, scrollbars working fine etc.;
'Gas mask' image at the top wider than the red band, over-lapping on the top and bottom;
'News' posts extend far below menus on the side.

Other than that, it's looking good. It's nice to have all the links in one place and a big, friendly news spot in the centre. Very user-friendly and welcoming. I like the links down the right-hand side, although a link to information about purchasing the magazines might be good - both single issues and subscriptions. I take it that's what the shop is going to be.

Heh, I too have been following this for a while now - it was easy for me to find as it's one of about 6 blogs that actually links 'Neverscapes'. ;)

Looking good, anyway, I like the design.

For those who use LiveJournal, I created a syndicated account for the new website yesterday so folks can follow news on their friends page. Just go here and add the feed to your friends list.

I like the new look too. Very snazzy.

That's clever Tim, thanks. Does that mean anyone connecting to your livejournal will see the article or get a link to it?

Not being a live journaler this is all new to me.

Roy,

Do you mean me? I'm Traci, not Tim (though I can see how the L looks like an I in my username) :) .

Folks who visit my journal can see the feed on my friends page, but it would probably be less steps to just jaunt on over to the T3A website to read the news there. The feed I set up is intended for other LiveJournal user, so they can add it to their friends page, so they can follow it at the same time they're following all their other feeds they're interested in. So if you don't have an LJ, it's not really of any use to you. If you have a news aggregator program, there's ways to add T3A's RSS news feed to it, but I don't know much about those, since I use LJ for all that kind of stuff.

I offer a consultancy service in social media skills, Roy. Very reasonable rates to people I know ... ;)

Thanks everybody.

I was trying to sort out a couple of things, like getting the 'categories' organised into something that's clearly, say Black Static > Case Notes. Couldn't get to grips with that. Then I thought ah, widgets. But after a while I discovered that Malcolm wasn't widget ready. So my question is this: can you make a non-widget ready wordpress theme widget ready, and if so how?

That could be tricky, but getting nested categories to display shouldn't require widgets unless you want some fancy java naimations or whatnot. In the .php file for the sidebar, there'll be a function that calls the category list from the database; you can adjust the way the categories display (showing sub-cats, for example) by adjusting the arguments to the call expression. The Wordpress online documentation is pretty thorough, this page should be quite helpful.

Thanks Paul, I will get round to that...

Meanwhile, I've done a little bit more bodging and even though he still needs some sorting I thought Malcolm might as well go live now. But -- and this is going to sound really stupid, and I had it clear in my head once what I had to do -- how do I replace the current ttapress.com with ttapress.com/malcolm so that Malcolm becomes the ttapress.com?

:oops:
