Site is open again with some changes, MyPortal 2.0 is coming along, I have instituted a new layout feature to make changing the layout more fluid. Using Jaxel's approach to layout designing and creation, this will open new options for members. I am also attempting to add an easy import/export block system making block creation by users much easier than currently. Lastly, the frontpage will have some nice CSS looks to help the blocks stand out a bit more and an option to use either a sidebar or use all 3 columns of the portal.
Questions I know that may be asked.
When will MyPortal 2.0 be ready? No exact date for release but I am aiming for another week.
Why use Jaxel's approach? Simple, I know jack squat about jQuery or AJAX, I am simply adopting the way he did his to my mod but I will include thanks.
Fair enough, will these new features allow for adding of our own blocks? Simple anwser, YES. Long answer, the creation is done through the install then all you do is export the block.
Move is done and we are unpacked, new desk in place since old one was broke during move. MyShop is being finished up then I will finish MyPortal, currently MyPortal is about 45% complete, just have to redo some of the style, redo blocks, add the new block manager and the new layout manager. The new layout system works flawlessly.
MyPortal is in development again, taking it slow, going between this and MyShop, at the sametime doing custom work. Get stuff on custom work then I go to MyShop get stuff there go to MyPortal then do it all over again if I get stuck on MyPortal. Anyway, MyPortal will be my biggest add-on that will be free for now, at least until I get MyNewsletter updated and released.
