Entries for September, 2007

A bunch of redirect issues were fixed (some of your templates were pointing to the wrong pages).

I also fixed the issue where some of you could login to the control panel but not your main site - please let me know below if that issues is fixed for now! (You will have to log back in again to get the changes).

If you're on any Tabulas accounts, and you get logged out, please go to the /debug/ folder of that site (for example: http://tabulas.tabulas.com/debug/) and copy/paste the contents of the textarea to roy@tabulas.com. Thanks.

Regarding links:

I've added the old view most of you were familiar with - the view with all your links categorized on one page; some of you don't like the "recent links" view! I've added this at the /links/archives/ url; going to the links page also has a link to it. If you'd like this to be your default page, simply update your template to no longer point to /links/, but instead to /links/archive/.

Here's a list of items that were fixed over the past 12 hours:

  • Hit logging for patron accounts turned back on
  • Login logic made consistent - my.tabulas.com uses the same code as www.tabulas.com now, so that weird issue where sometimes you'd be logged in on one or the other is fixed
  • I've changed the categories/archives view to the full-text versions that everybody enjoys so much
  • To help search engines, I've started explicitly defining the meta tag for robots explicitly on aggregation pages - these include the category and archive views - the goal is that google indexes your homepage and your specific entry, but no other pages that contains your entries
  • Fixed font issue for navbar and broken favicons
  • Fixed missing moods
  • Added back the missing "Add ___ as a friend" link

Switching usernames has now been fixed for both the new and old control panel.

Regarding the continued "not being logged-in" issue that some of you have been seeing, I believe the issue has to do with proxy servers (computers that route data between Tabulas' server and your computer) are storing bad cached copies of your content. I have started explicitly telling those proxies to stop caching - I hope this resolves some of your login issues.

These effects may take a little while to resolve, but please continue to report to me any issues regarding login states that are not consistent with what you expect. Thanks.

It looks like underscores in subdomains can fail for some ISPs. For that reason, I've automatically switched over all underscores to dashes in the URL. If your Tabulas username is John_Doe, your subdomain will be http://john-doe.tabulas.com.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
