Title: October 24, 2004
Post by: Nao on October 24, 2004, 00:00:00
No, the new site isn't finished yet, but I've decided to do my best to keep you posted on its progress. I've completed my small program to convert this news archive to the new database. Unfortunately I'll be forced to give up the French translation of the archives, because they do not fit perfectly with the English news (date, HTML code, etc). I've made sure, though, that all future news can be translated immediately to French as soon as they're ready to be posted. And I'll try to translate them by myself.  The conversion has allowed me to spot a few bugs in the news system. The problem with the website is that if I find a bug, fixing it might corrupt the database. So it's best to wait a little before I do something that can't be undone. Currently, the news system has a comments feature that is taken from the forum system. Unfortunately, the news structure doesn't match with the forum post structure, and I'm starting to think I should have done it the other way, by integrating the news into the forum: internally, news should be seen as a specific forum where only the authors are allowed to post. This way, any improvement to the forum system will be applied to the news system too. That's what I'm trying to do now. I expect this work to take as little as one day, maybe two. I'll try to give you an update by then.
