GWB | Minor Site Update
Last week I deployed a small update to Geekswithblogs.net based on a blogger suggestion to get the last version of the Admin Blog Editor’s input control on the server so he could do some cool stuff he wanted to with syntax. I published that update and then fixed some of the annoying CSS issues we had on the server side to make it a little cleaner looking UI. I need to do more work for sure, but I fixed the majority of the issues. Another area I put some time into was the long standing request for ......

GWB | Numerous Test Post Annoyances
Seriously why do new bloggers insist on placing a test post with the word “test” as the entire body? This is just a weird concept to me. Please stop. No one wants to see you introduced to a community as “test”. Rather we would like to see you say, “Hi, this is my first post. My name is [Insert Name] and I am [Insert Interests and Bio]”. This is a blog community so why not try out a blog post for a test? Anyway, I am very sorry for the number of test posts we have been receiving lately. I will add ......

GWB | Now with shorter domains (wblo.gs or geekswithblo.gs)
With the popularity of twitter growing, we wanted to enable users to have the possibility to have a shorter URL for posting. To complete the idea, we purchased http://wblo.gs and http://geekswithblo.gs, and you can selected which ever you prefer. Once the request is made it will be redirected to the page under that http://geekswithblogs.net domain, but it will shortcut the amount of characters needed. Here are some examples: http://wblo.gs/jjulian http://geekswithblo.gs http://wblo.gs/jalexander/r... ......

WLW, GWB, SubText - Images Upload Directly
With Windows Live Writer, there is no more need for Flickr, or hand rolling galleries to get pictures in your posts. If you have a post and you want to add a picture from your hard drive to it, just drag it on and publish. Metablogger and SubText will take care of the rest. Don't believe me? Check it out below: Brandon can't get away from computers ......

Geekswithblogs Search Provider | Thanks Lance!
I first need to start this post with a thank you to Lance Robinson for submit all the required work and the idea of a Geekswithblogs.net search provider. Now when you visit the Geekswithblogs.net Homepage, if you drop down your search providers list you will see a “Geekswithblogs” listing as well as a highlighted link to add the Geekswithblogs search provider to your browser. With this, you then can use the Geekswithblogs search for finding answers to the questions you have. Our search is powered ......

GWB | Sorry about the outage this morning
It looks like someone (probably search engine bots) were a little more excited with these servers than they were with the last and made over 10,000 requests in a minute, causing IIS to shut down.  I up-ed the limit and am going to keep an eye on concurrent connections for awhile.  If you see any issues with GWB, please @jjulian message me on Twitter or email me at jjulian AT geekswithblogs.com.  Thanks!!!!

Geekswithblogs.net 3.0 is now available!
Wow, that took a long time but it is finally ready. This morning I released the Geekswithblogs.net 3.0 will all the new features we could finish before PDC 2008. This is definitely not the end of 3.0 features, but it needed to get out the door. The first change you will notice is the GREEN MONSTER has been replaced. This theme has been in the works since the springtime as most of you with shirts know. Keep an eye on this blog and the tutorials section of the site throughout this week so you can learn ......

_geeksWithBlogs.Comments | Get me your screenshots and errors
OK, I have heard you loud and clear, the comments suck in SubText and on Geekswithblogs.net. I agree, but I don't have near as many problems with people being able to comment as others do. This leads me to believe the problems lay in two places, the skins or the custom HTML code fields. Most of the time when I am debugging a blogger with comment problems they are due to some javascript they have embedded into the news section of their blog. However, this is a problem so we need to get it fixed so ......

GWB | Homepage "Read More" Implemented
After popular demand, we finally implemented "Read More" on the Geekswithblogs.net homepage.  If you have concerns or thanks, please let me know via comments.  I think the homepage is definitely easier to navigate now.

Geekswithblogs | Google Analytics for Members
We track statistics and demographics for Geekswithblogs.net using Google Analytics and I am very impressed with this product. However, due to the nature of our blog system, several bloggers want to track their information independently as well. To make this happen, I used a modification to the original Urchin code Google offered, but that recently quit working as they upgraded the codes they offer. So the upgrade of codes will most likely cause you to upgrade your code. Here are the steps to do it: ......
