New features: commenting and browsing

I've been working on some extensions of the website. From now on, you can do two new cool things: comment on my articles and browse through the archive, filtered by category and ordered by date. Please read on for the details.

Speak Up, Be Heard!

It is now possible to comment on my articles. When you're look at a complete article (i.e. not at a preview), the bottom of the page will show a small form where you can leave your name, your e-mail address (if desired; it won't be displayed here) and any questions or remarks that you have regarding what I wrote. Feel free to try it out! The bottom of an article page also shows the comments that have been posted so far.

For the time being, I have chosen to moderate comments manually, so your reply will not appear on the website immediately. Let's just see how this goes for a while :)

No Thanks, Just Browsing

The right side of the main page now contains a block titled Browse. By changing the form's settings and clicking the "Go" button, you can filter my archive of articles by category, and order them by date in ascending or descending order.

Note that the category filter is "OR-based", so the browse mechanism returns all articles that fit in any of the categories you have chosen.

I have also updated the main page, so that it shows only the five latest articles. The number of articles returned by the browse function is unlimited! (Of course, you won't start noticing the difference until more articles have been created.)

What Else?

Of course, a website is never finished. If you have any suggestions for further improvements (apart from actual content on the Art, Programming and Games pages-- stay tuned for that!), don't hesitate to drop a comment below.
