Guess what?

We’re on OpenSourceCMS

:)

Why is this cool? Because there is now a demo page, so you can test FlatPress live!

Have fun!

Aside: I wonder who asked for adding us to the list, as Samy, Drudo and a bunch of other people kept on asking me when I was going to do it; I’ve always answered I wanted to release Crescendo+1, first.

Well someone was quicker than me :P

I’m sooo lazy. So lazy that I should be studying right now, so I go back to my books, bye!

Ask your users: comment links

As you know FlatPress provides two “permalinks”, one with comments and one without them.

Since its birth FlatPress tried to be an (almost… not fully :P) drop-in replacement for SPB, so the main “windows” on the rest of the world stayed the same: index.php, comments.php, static.php, rss.php.

Now, many of you begged for our beloved prettyurls, which required - in order to make it painless (really “less painful” :D) I’ve finally decided - as SVN users should have noticed - to centralize the whole link affair on index.php

Now, for people who don’t like/don’t want/can’t have pretty urls there’s a question to be answered.

static pages are identified by the ?page= parameter, permalinks with ?entry= parameter; RSSs with feed=FEED-ID (where feed id is rss2 or atom: cool, isn’t it?).

Now, how should comments be identified?

For now it’s ?entry=entry123456-123456&comments, but I kinda dislike how that looks.

i.e. http://www.flatpress.org/home/?entry=entry123456-123456&comments # this is just a sample url

note: most of the times this will look like

http://www.flatpress.org/home/?entry=entry123456-123456&comments#comments

with the anchor to the comment list. now *that* looks ugly. Any suggestions?

I ask you because once decided it will *stay* that way.

note: I don’t know if any of you noticed you can now subscribe individual comment feeds, just append to your entry &feed=rss2 or &feed=atom :)

i.e. http://www.flatpress.org/home/?entry=entry123456-123456&comments&feed=rss2
