Site Upgrade

July 12, 2009

Well, as excited as I was about running this blog from text files, I used a few hours today to created a “proper” admin interface for it as well as move the contents to SQLlite (which, btw is a totally kickass project).

Perhaps the biggest new “feature” is that the search field actually works now. It gave results before (using grep, no less!), but was unable to link to the actual stories because the files had no notion of what the story ID’s were.

Oh, and the bulk of the admin interface is a whopping 30 lines of PHP, thanks mainly to PDO and the magic of prepared statements.
