Latest Site Improvement

Latest feature on the main site is RSS feeds, allowing you to view site updated from the comfort of your Windows Vista desktop or any other RSS feed reader. Enjoy :D

And it's back :D

This is what it does

If you're using IE7 you should see the RSS icon in the top right glow orange on the main site, allowing you to view the RSS page and subscribe to the feed. This also works with the Windows Vista Sidebar hence the desktop comment (note to self - test before clicking submit here... yes! it does :lol: ).

I've been meaning to work on that for ages so I'm well chuffed it's working :D

Just a quick note regarding this - on the feeds you may see times and dates on some articles that are different to what is shown as the published date - this is because the date on the feeds comes from a "last update" field rather than the date the article was submitted - so if I'm in correcting a typo two days later, the date will change accordingly.

I'd had a look a few times but was unable to find anything amiss - I guess the fix for last night's permissions error shunted everything back into place.

There's a new-look website currently being worked on and the video highlights will be reinstated as part of that. Hopefully, it won't be too much longer until it's ready to go. I'm still recording the games so the highlights from the recent games will be available on the new site.

Nev's keen,

This site was new last year if my memory serves me correctly. Still look forward to the new site and the features that will probably come along with it.

The current site's been on the go for two years.

I've not developed the new site..
