As you may have noticed, I made some major changes at Backup Central today. We upgraded to Joomla 1.5, changed the add-on we used for comments, and upgraded MediaWiki to its latest version as well. In addition, we now have a template that gives you the same look and feel no matter where you are on the site. This should make things much easier to use. Here are just a few of the new features:
- Due to popular demand, we now support comments without logging in
- RSS Feeds for comments
- It’s now much easier to edit the Wiki articles. Just log in to Backup Central and choose any article in the Wiki. Voila! There’s the Edit button!
- We’ll also have an all new front page and logo, but neither of those are ready just yet.
Just in case you’re curious, the logo that IS on the front page is just a placeholder put there by the guys that designed the template. I have no idea what the big N is for. 😉
If you have any trouble using the new site, please let me know by clicking Contact Curtis. Thanks!
