2010-11-03 : Website Template Updated : v2.16.0

Enhancements

  1. Atom and RSS feeds now provide a permalink to the individual news item instead of just the year, month and day (there may be multiple items in a particular day).
  2. RSS feed now displays more than just the first 80 characters, i.e. the whole article.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

None.

Bug Fixes

  1. XHTML validation was failing on "Latest Updates" page if there were no updates as the table was being rendered without any content.
  2. Atom and RSS feeds tweeked such that the getdate() function is called after the timzone is set, not before.
  3. A lock file is now created when updating the page stats to save the stats being cleared during simultaneous page requests.

See the downloads page.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

  1. $my_google_site_verification_code

2010-05-13 : I became a Daddy

James Cameron

On the 13th of May 2010, I became a Daddy for the first time when my wife Helen gave birth to our beautiful son James, weighing in at 8lb 4oz!

Now begins the sleepless nights and the dirty nappies, but one day I'll look forward to him taking me to the pub and buying me a pint (with the money that he's just borrowed off me!)

Here are some photos of the wee man in his first week in the world.

2010-03-30 : Website Template Updated : v2.14.1

Enhancements

None.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

None.

Bug Fixes

  1. Fixed a bug in the atom and rss feed validators: I'd changed the value of a variable for displaying the social bookmarks, but forgot it was used else where in the code. Thanks to Bruce Levick for spotting another bug!

2010-03-27 : Equipment Speciality

At the AGM for Plug Divers, Gary from Dive Safari offered Plug members a discount on a PADI Equipment Speciality course with a difference: going far further than the PADI minimum requirement for the course (which is rather poor in my opinion).

The basic jist of the course was how to save your dive, if for example, you're on a boat and your first stage regulator is leaking - without stripping the thing down of course ... as that's only for qualified technicians ;-)

So after the basic course content, he was stripping down first and second stage regulators and showing us the inside of cylinders etc. It also appears that I need to buy a few more tools for my dive tool kit ;-)

Anyway, I couldn't resist ... so that's me now got another PADI ticket.

2010-03-25 : Website Template Updated : v2.14.0

Enhancements

Any users upgrading may want to update their style sheets, although only if they wish to take advantage - see enhancement 1.

  1. Added more <div>s to the style sheet to allow the category headings and all related pages to be played with as a block. Also one for the search.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

None.

Bug Fixes

  1. Added a Windows bug work-a-round to get e-mail to send when running on a Windows server (Contact.php and Survey.php).
  2. Not really a bug, but by default, the example e-mail re-direct is now commented out since some users still can't RTFM!
  3. The meta tag in the page header now only displays the year once if the copyright start and current year are the same (did a similar fix for the page footer back in v2.10.0.
  4. Fixed the social bookmarks that weren't passing specific page parameters to the bookmarking site - although it will still come down to the actual bookmarking site whether it considers the extra parameters to be junk.

See the downloads page.

2010-03-04 : Website Template Updated : v2.13.1

Enhancements

Any users upgrading will have to update their style sheets as the <hr> tag has been moved - see enhancement 1.

  1. Moved the <hr> style tag from <photo_albums.css> into all of the individual style sheets allowing it to be customised on a style basis.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

None.

Bug Fixes

  1. The search function now checks whether the News feed is present before attempting to search through it (thanks to Jim Leach for finding this).

See the downloads page.

2010-02-19 : Website Template Updated : v2.13.0

Enhancements

  1. Added social bookmarking icons that appear on each page.
  2. Added the default_timezone since PHP >= 5.1 wants this for any time function calls.
  3. Added the ability to hide the website title on the page - usefull if you have the name already on the background image.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

  1. $my_timezone
  2. $my_enable_social_bookmarking
  3. $my_main_title_hide

Bug Fixes

  1. Stopped a filemtime call on Home.html if it did not exist under the condition of there being a Home.php, News.php and a valid news feed.

See the downloads page.

2009-01-25 : The Insignificant Man : Buy It Here

My good pal Mark Naples recorded an album in 2003 called The Insignificant Man which I did some of the photographic work for. Until such time that he gets into gear with his website, I've offered to sell it via GavsWorld.

2010-01-23 : Website Template Updated : v2.12.0

Enhancements

  1. Added last access date / time to the Website Stats page
  2. Enhanced the "Contact" page to allow a fixed subject matter and name to be passed into the page. Very useful if you want to re-direct a message to a particular address as this function goes by the subject line.
  3. Added the facility to have simple text files as pages.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

None.

Bug Fixes

None.
