BlogMax 1.01

Saturday, October 5, 2002

Hard to believe it's been almost a year since my last update. I use BlogMax almost every day for my political blog (End the War on Freedom). I've made some small changes to it over the last eleven months, but I'm just now getting around to uploading them.

I converted the three image files from GIF to PNG. Hopefully, this will be good news to my Linux users.

weblog.ini now includes some comments from James Thornton on using Tramp to do "scp" for the web site upload. It also includes a new "month-index" flag, which controls whether a monthly index page is generated and linked to the month name in the output of the {calendar} macro (as you should see in the upper right-hand corner of this page). The default is to generate the monthly index file.

I implemented Tony Sidaway's suggestions, adding "alt" attributes to "<img ...>" tags and "#" to the colors in the template files. I also removed the final newline in "". The generated html should now pass weblint, though it still uses tables for layout because I've been too lazy to learn enough CSS to switch.

The {calendar} macro now makes the link to the previous or next month go to the previous or next day file even if it's further away than a month.
