DTW upgrades and such

You may have noticed some tweaks around the site. I’m in the process of fixing some stuff that’s been bugging me for awhile. The changes aren’t done, but I wanted to point out what has happened in case I broke something along the way. I know enough about CSS to screw stuff up, but not enough to be able to make stuff pretty.

Here’s what I’ve done so far:

Stuff still to do:

As always I’m open to any myriad of suggestions and I’ll do my best to implement them when possible (my skill, plans for the site, and time all allow). Also, if you see anything that’s broken please let me know. I’ve been testing in both Firefox and IE on Windows and so far so good.

  1. You’ve been busy, Billfer. I especially like the AJAX commenting function and spell checker. Last night I checked into your blog and wondered “what the heck” when I saw lines under everyone’s name and also had to scroll way down the page to read the article. Anyway, nice work.

    One other thing, remember when you had the baseball story contest? I’ve tried and tried to find those stories but can’t. Do you remember the month and year you published them?

  4. Bill, I hate to make this sound like a love fest, but you truly do have the best baseball site around. I generally read DTW before anything else in the morning – including the Freep or the News.

  6. The new comment feature is very cool. This is the gold standard of sports blogs in my book.

  7. Editing ability on comments! Yes! You could not change another thing and that alone makes all the difference in the world, even if it for just 10 minutes after said post.

    That said, it would be nice to have a quote type function with the person’s name you’re quoting and whatnot. But that’s not a biggie, like the editing ability.
