New News frontpage - being implemented on 20/10/09
« on: October 20, 2009, 01:46:07 am »
From tomorrow I will be changing the News system.

By the suggestion of athlon4011, I'll be making the frontpage take news from a "News" board that I will create.

I just spent an hour or so whipping up the PHP code to do it, and I've integrated it into the design of the news page, so the transition should be flawless.

The benefits:
 - News Staff will be able to post news from the forum! :O (no more remembering multiple logins for Dingoonity!)
 - it means less work on my part later on, heh.
 - less database overhead (no Wordpress :D)
 - members can comment using their forum accounts

What I've written features rss2 feed too :D

Anyway yeah, I'll create the News board tomorrow, and I'll transfer the existing news over, and then I'll change the frontpage to use the new news page.
