Sitemap 0.82

Thanks to everyone who has tried SiteMap and given great feedback... Although it works well I hope we can work out the last few niggling details soon. Speaking of which we are on the usual beta per day roller coaster (in this case two beta's per day)

I discovered a performance problem where a SiteMap could slow down the editing of your page (it was how I handle notifications of changes).... Version 0.82 is on the server and should fix this. I wouldn't have put one out so soon except for on very large sites it could cause a noticeable delay when editing pages.

Sitemaps again

It's pretty fun to map out your site....

There are lots of opinions on the internet for how to do it best... For instance some people like the good ol tree view

Other folks prefer alphabetical or even by category

What do you prefer? Do you have a favorite?

There is a new feature on my page. I have a site map now...

It wasn't as hard to generate as you might think.

TUAW mention

Rapidflickr got a nice mention at The Unofficial Apple Weblog (or TUAW as it's known to its friends).

http://www.tuaw.com/2006/04/03/publish-flickr-images-to-rapidweaver-with-rapidflickr/

The great thing is that they used it in a way that I never considered but it works out to be a pretty neat solution.

If you've tried Rapidflickr and want to purchase a registration to get all of the features I've set up a 10% off coupon to sweeten the deal. Simply use

Lockdown 1.5

I'm back from Vegas. It's an interesting town -- it's hard for me to say "I recommend it" since honestly I don't care for it that much but if you have never been you should see it at least once.

The real upside is instead of heading to Germany next week (Which was my original plan) I'm staying home. This is a really good thing. Nothing against Germany but I've been traveling a lot recently (I'm in Monterey right now) and I'm looking forward to a few quiet days at home.

I just put Lockdown 1.5 final up on the server. I've had no problems with b2 and there are only a few minor changes. If you haven't tried it now is the time as it has some nice improvements over Lockdown 1.1

Vegas Baby!

Yes, I'm headed to Vegas.

And no, it's not to feed my gambling habit or to partake in other 'Adult' activities. It's actually for work (Day Job). Apparently you can get really cheap conference centers & hotels and we are having a largish internal meeting with our field organization. They are sending me as an Expert from R&D to help answer questions, etc.

Upshot to anyone who reads this blog is I'll be away from mac-land (my mac is not portable... Something I hope to fix very soon!) but I'm only gone for a few days (Sunday - Tuesday) so it's not a large trip.

In the meantime I'll probably snap a few pictures with my horrible cell phone camera. You can monitor my progress here as I wend my way through Disneyland for Adults.

Rapidflickr 1.0 - Crazy Delicious

After a seemingly endless stream of Beta releases I'm happy to announce the release of Rapidflickr 1.0

This release is very similar to 0.9.3b7 with a small number of changes that honestly I doubt anyone will notice. As I've mentioned previously this plugin is really a labor of love so I'm pretty excited to be able to call this 1.0.

The next 'big' thing for Rapidflickr is new output styles... I've been doing some research on different types of albums/gallery's/etc and I've got some ideas....

To celebrate I've set up a coupon
CPN4934344478
which provides a limited number of 10% off any order at loghound.com (e.g. you can use it for rapidflickr or lockdown).

If you have 0.9.3b7 then no urgent need to get 1.0 but feel free to grab it if you like.

Get all of the 1.0 goodness here As always change notes are here

Lockdown beta 1 of version 1.5 is here

Hi All,

As promised here is beta 1 of version 1.5 (download). While it seems to work OK for me it probably still has some problems (I don't know of anything mind you... It's just I made a lot of changes and my own testing has been limited).

I'm only going to announce this on my blog (for now) For those brave souls who want to feel free to give it a try. I'm especially curious for the following:

1) Password Expiration.. Does it work for you?
2) Error page redirects
3) Import of version 1.1. Especially if you used the page redirect feature of version 1.1
4) GUI & Wording.... . I'm not crazy about what I called some things (Error Pages?) and some of the new gui elements. Any input here would be great

If all goes smoothly I'll probably get the Localization started by Saturday (started == requests out to folks to begin localization with a list of strings to be localized)

I'm going to Las Vegas this Sunday for my "Day" Job (don't even ask... you wouldn't believe it if I told you...) Hopefully before I leave a stable version is announced on the RW forums and out to a largish number of folks to begin pounding on.

Lockdown version 1.5

Version '1.5' of lockdown is well underway... This should bring some neat new features......

I'll probably have the beta out in a few days but here is a sneak preview

Pasted Graphic 1
(In case you are wondering.. "Error Occured" is a page in my RW document... The SW is not saying one occured just to redirecet to the page called "Error Occured" so to speak)


This shows off the two big changes... You can now 'expire' passwords after a length of time and you can now set the error document (e.g. what should happen if file isn't found or bad username/password)

I am also hoping to get French & German localizations. Probably not in the first beta but hopefully before final release (and if you contacted me regarding translations don't worry... I still haven't gotten back to anyone. I'm going to figure out the localization process first and then get back to people on the actual translation

0.9.3b7

The crazy parade of Rapidflickr releases continue.

I just put up
which mostly just fixes HTML rendering. I've spent a LOT of time on rapidflickr recently and the rate of change will probably slow down a lot for a while since I've been ignoring rapidblog. If 0.9.3b7 doesn't have any major problems I'll probably call this 'version 1.0'.

When I first started Rapidflickr I had a few ideas of what I wanted.

* Robust (e.g. it makes it hard to make a mistake)
* Easy to use & predictable (e.g. hide the complexity of the flickr web services API, PHP, etc.)
* Support .mac (e.g. provide for semi-static pages)
* Support live updates (e.g. allow for a dynamic web page that's always up to date)

In fact I'm willing to share 'loghound.com' super-secret design documents... This is pretty much what I started with with when I was first trying to pull together this plugin... In looking through it I'm pretty happy with how close the final product is (in truth, the final product is I think better than I captured here) View the vision
(warning 1MB)

It's taken me longer than I expected but it's been really satisfying -- Thanks to everyone for all of the support. Don't get me wrong, I'm not done developing it I'm just enjoying getting (very) close to this major milestone.
