  • The registration flow is now completed integrated into SimpleConference and fully functional. The online payments are linked into the framework as well as a very extensive solution to handle every aspect of registrations. 
  • It's alive. The blog framework I started to build a few  days back in the evenings. It has some very impressive features and is incredbly light-weight yet very powerful.
  • Simple Blog today supports multiple languages out of the box. You just provide the comma separated string with the languages you wish to support. Currently SimpleBlog comes with English, Spanish and Kaqchikel.
  • Simple Blog now makes use of a complete atomized approach of stylesheets to improve the performance further.
  • Today bulk emailing was introduced in SimpleBlog. It allows you to email all your users and provide you with different slices of these. It runs with a simple little script in the background to provide better stability. I suggest you only run this during nights as the load on servers usually increases when you run email scripts.
  • You can now add your own styles using CSS to customize the look-and-feel. If you create a file custom.css you will be able to create your own styles. As custom.css you can safely update the code base after you have styled your blog with it. 
  • Yep it is true. You can now add your own link section. It is a pretty extensive framework for links allowing you to create portfolios with all the relevant information. Have fun with them!
  • A few weeks back I launched the first version of SimpleConference. It is a complete framework for conferences. It allows you to have yearly conferences and a fully flexed model for registrations with online payments etc. It will be tested for a conference in Guatemala and it is already live at I will soon release more details about this framework and other software packages currently being developed.
  • All packages built from and including SimpleBlog now contains a completely dynamic filtering mechanism for robots. This will prevent too many sessions to get created from robots as well as not create clickstream entries.  Anyone can add to the list of user agents they wish to prevent just by adding them into the database and bounce the server.
  • You can now reorder the pages in the navigation bar dynamically. The default order is alphabetically but you can reorder them if you are logged in just by dragging them. The Home link is static as it is good UX design to keep the home link in the beginning of a navigation.
