Bugfix: Pretty URLs

June 30th, 2010 No comments

When you save a page, ditzie attempts to convert a numeric reference to an image set into “pretty” format. Unfortunately, If you were using a non-top-level set, this would result in a “page not found” error when saving.

For example, you load up http://beta.ditzie.com/680, which takes you to the D&D maps folder (Beta >> dnd >> maps, if you were to navigate there via the gallery). You position a few items and hit return to save. Instead of redirecting you to http://beta.ditzie.com/680/NEWPAGEID, you get sent to http://beta.ditzie.com/dnd/maps/NEWPAGEID, which turns into a 404 (file not found) error.

This is a bug.

Err… was a bug. It’s fixed now.

What I’m up to…

June 28th, 2010 No comments

So, it’s no substitute for a proper road-map, but I’ve put together a to-do list for ditzie. The list is actually maintained under my RTM account and mirrored here.

Assuming I can keep it up-to-date, the list will show you what bugs I’ve identified, which features I’m working on, and what I plan to add.

Gallery3: First impressions

June 21st, 2010 No comments

It’s pretty obvious that ditzie (at least the Alpha and Beta sites) use an open source image gallery package to support user provided images and image sets. The particular image gallery package I’m using is actually called “Gallery,” and I’m running what is currently the stable release (version 2.x). Gallery is one of the mast popular image gallery software packages around, and rightfully so. It’s stable, it’s feature rich, it’s easy to use, and it’s free. So when the next major version of Gallery went public (version 3.x is now in the “release candidate” stage), I decided to have a look.

What follows are my initial impressions of the new version. This is not a comprehensive review by a long shot. This is an overview of my initial impression of integrating Gallery 3 into ditzie. Read more…
