It took a lot to make this site ready to become a multiple contributor website. Most of it you won’t see on the front end, though.
The first thing you might notice is that I put some User CP links in the upper right. This is mainly to make it easier for our contributors, but you can also benefit by registering. Right now it just means you can edit your own comments, make a profile, and the site will remember you – but there’s more coming for site users/subscribers, I promise!
Second, you may have noticed the author name is now a link. You can click that to see a little drop down bio of the author and a picture as uploaded to Gravatar. Mine has a temporary image of Metron from my forum profile. I may put a real picture of me in there later tonight if I remember.
There’s also a link to all the posts by that author in that little drop down. I’m working right now to switch all the book database entries to a different user (“Database Robot McRusty”, heh) so my count shows accurately and only lists blog posts instead of all the books as well. (there’s no real robotic or automated process, I just thought it was funny. I’m not sure what to call that fake user… it’s all me, really.)
That’s all I can think of for now. The rest of the updates are all hidden in the backend, but it took a good 8 hours of work (and the plugin count for this wordpress insanity is up to 35! Not counting the ones I’ve integrated or my own extensive hacks and re-designs. Blah! Probably pretty unstable. I’ll work on stability once everything else is working haha)
