NEW Codewolf Shoutout - You'll notice that on the left side of the page is a new shoutout box. This is in beta and may have some bugs to work out.

Some of the new features:

  • All new posts will appear at the top. I can change this, but I have some layout issues to deal with before I do that.
  • This is built on AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML). To put it simply, it's interactive with the web server so it'll refresh every time you or someone else enters a shout out. You no longer need to refresh the page and you'll see any new text entered as soon as someone enters it.
  • It's (for now) living in an IFRAME. The entire layout of the shoutout box is done in CSS but since I'm not using CSS for the entire site layout, I have to put it in an IFRAME. Note: This is NOT an auto-refreshing IFRAME, the content is updated through JavaScript inserting new content.
  • If you are logged in, your name will not appear in the Name field. I will be incorporating that feature again. Right now the shoutout is in beta until I get any other bugs worked out. I also have to see how the database server will handle the extra requests.
  • This does require JavaScript to work, so you may want to turn that on. I'm looking into changing the entire site into a CSS layout with AJAX incorporated so articles will appear auto-magically. I will, of course, have a version that will work without JavaScript.

Please let me know what you think!

I've changed the current visitors count to AJAX as well. That number above the shoutout box will update auto-magically now

Newest comments on top. A little strange but okay.

My last post popped up scrollbars. I have an orange colored XP skin up right now so that is *really* obvious on your grey and blue site :)

But awesome!

The scroll bars are the problem if I make the last post appear at the bottom. Since it's in an IFRAME sitting in a table cell, I can't dynamically increase the size, thus the scrollbars. Let me try a few things like deleting older posts as new ones come along. Once I change the site over to a full CSS layout I won't have these problems since the CSS will dymically resize the defined areas. All I need is more time to write the code.
