* Site News *
You may have noticed that there was a link "news page" to a news
page on the home page of the blues section of my website, if you
ever followed this you will have noticed that the last update was
in 2003! This old page was built by hand and even though there have
been many improvements and updates to the site since 2003 I never
had the time to keep note of them on this old page.
Enter the new news page system.
This one is database driven and will be much easier to maintain.
Some things (such as new additions to the giglist) are automated so
I don't need to worry about adding the same info twice. There's a
latest news panel in the home page of overall site which shows the
most recent article.
Also you can subscribe by RSS by clicking on the orange RSS icon on
the main RSS page. Here's a direct link to the RSS feed
for a prettified version.
Along with the news system comes a Blog page for longer articles,
they will be mainly blues related but I may post on any subject so
take a look from time to time to see what I'm ranting about! These
mails will be automatically posted to the blog page, with any links
etc. converted into proper checkable links . Again there is a RSS
