Now With Multi-Page View

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 6:42 AM

One of the major oversights in my initial design of SAFARI (my site's blogware) is that it could only show one page per category. So, given that each category shows the 10 most recent posts, anything older than the 10 most recent posts vanished. Now, I've added a search engine style bar to the top of every category page (including the front page) allowing you to move through all six and a half years of asisaid content, not just the most recent postings.

The new navigation tool is probably alpha grade, and I'd appreciate any reports of bugs you notice, but overall I think it is working well. Give it a whirl and let me know how it goes.

Re: Now With Multi-Page View
I hit the "first button" and got this: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /journal/.html on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. Apache/2.2.9 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.8b mod_bwlimited/1.4 Server at Port 80 I tried it again and it seems to work. Also the "last" button should take you to the most recent post. It doesn't take you to anything except Presently Running Series nav box. Also you should really have a 404 page set up to catch any misques. Giving away all that info to a hacker w/ a black hat would only help them. If I find more I'll let you know. Btw, tested with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008102920 Firefox/3.0.4

Re: Now With Multi-Page View
Thanks, Mark. I'll have to tweak it some more. I found a few other bugs too. I was thinking first and last in reverse chronological order, but you have a point. Hmm. Most Recent might be clearer than "first."
