Another large push.
Guestbook repopulated and fixed so hovering over a entry will display complete message from user.
Total downloads added to the home page.
Web links to other C64 disk magazines added.
SEO keywords added.


Under the hood:
Many new features added to the Administration menu to make adding Magazines, Content txt, Guestbook editor and Web links easy.

Reset website will go live around same time as the next magazine release. Till then http://reset.cbm8bit.com is the site.

Too come next a feature which will allow us to add structured data for each magazine. <=== maybe a couple of week as will be working
on the high scores project.

Shane.

I'd really like to know what games are on the cover of issue #1. There's a few I don't recognize at all. Maybe I just never played them.

Yes, makes sense to have the latest issue accessible at the top of the page.
Liking how it looks.

I'm pulling the development site code to the live site folder today.

Cheers for your remarks, the latest issue feature is done along with the bullet points for the issue.

Will be doing the same for the other issues later, the bullet contents will open up next to the issue image, also add a search
so you can search withing the pdfs for keywords.

I am thinking about releasing the website as a package to allow someone to setup a similar site, if i do you could administer and customize your site from the back end. It would not be difficult to envisage the site with other screenshots, downloads and descriptions, instead of magazine covers and so. I would need to put some more work into administering the styling from the back end etc and a great deal more feedback on features

At the moment this is just a what if and when i can find time to create the default site. I would also setup a git project to keep it up to date and add features users request, but time is the limiting factor and maybe others can help with coding and updating the default site via git.

p.s
This is not a canned site like wordpress and such.
