Ta Da! In the past 10 days, TWM :: Online has undergone a lot many changes, eh? First, the blog header gets a make over, followed by a complete overhaul to the whole site's design. Then came a few changes in the sidebar, a better looking Adsense implementation, a brand new tag line to the blog and now, finally, a brand new URL for us all! Yes, if you haven't noticed it yet, check out the address bar of your browser and you'll notice it says "http://www.the-wall-mag.blogspot.com/" no more!
Yes, the online edition of The Wall Mag has a new address now, http://www.twmonline.net. Do not worry, the previous URL will still be functional but all who visits that one shall be redirected to the new URL (it must have been the same with you too).
Well, along with the URL, I have also added a little graphic to identify the page among the rest. Such an icon is called Favicon and you can view it on your address bar and also at the left most part of the tab (unless you use IE6). Here's a figure to demonstrate what I am talking about.
I have also uploaded a slideshow of the authors' pics for the blog, titled "Author-o-Scope" and implemented the latest comments feature too. Just 2 issues, I didn't have a good enough pic of our very own Phat Man for the slide show and the latest comments' section seems to update itself a little late.
@ Dino: Do send me a pic of yours to put up on the blog.
@ Rest: If I have left anyone from the slideshow, do let me know with an attached picture of yours in an email. I shall put it up ASAP.
Oh yes, I had almost forgotten to mention about the new rating system that I have installed in the blog. Now, we have a chance to vote for a certain article that we really like. For example, the last article from Mann really deserved a couple of 5 stars, what say?
Well, there you go. I am almost done with the customization, for now. I have been spending a bit too much of time with this blog, lately. I hadn't touched the Blogger platform for quite a while now and it took me a while to get back my magic :-)
Rathz had called me up yesterday and was asking me to snazz up the theme a bit. But when he learnt that I couldn't edit the template in itself, he advised we should revamp the blog to another template, then. What do you all think about that? As for me, I told him I was trying to arrange for private domain hosting and we can think about a redesign only after that, if it at all happens!
It's past midnight right now and the Airtel's GPRS connection also sucks today. Had spent almost the whole of tonight, buying the domain and setting it up with the blog. The best part was, Atri Bokachoda visited the blog last night and even commented about the changes, but couldn't figure out that the domain too had already been changed! :-)
Kinda feeling a little alone now. All night, I had a purpose, a "mission" at hand. Now that it's almost done, I'm suddenly very sleepy and I think it's high time I hit the sack.
Oh, before I forget, every TopFloorer is set to get a custom @twmonline.net email id for himself :-) Yes, that's also in the pipeline. But I couldn't set it up tonight 'coz of the finicky internet connection. Will get that done tomorrow and the email adderesses should be ready by the day after, max!
So, if you want an email id for yourself, all you need to do is drop a comment and mention the id with which I should get your registered! :-)
Sheesh! This post almost sounds like a diary entry, or probably a letter :-P
Anyway, it's adieu from me now!
A very happy belated birthday to TWM :: Online and 3 cheers to ourselves!
