Some Changes. What do you think?

I have been making quite a few changes to this blog for the past few weeks now.

Feed Changes

Feed Redirection

Began first by redirecting my blog feed /feed/ to the Feedburner one. So even if you have been subscribing to /feed/ you will be redirected correctly and I have better ways of keeping a count of everyone subscribed. Read how I did it.

Feed Flare

Next customization was with the Feedburner Feed itself. Have utilized FeedFlare. You can now digg the post and/or view the number of diggs.
Also choose to track the comments with co.mments. Also Add to del.icio.us or email your friend 🙂
What other flares would you like to see?

Link Splicer

I have also incorporated the Link Splicer in my feed. My feed subscribers will see an additional feed item (actually seven) which summarizes the links that I have added during the day.
Not subscribed to this feed? Why aren’t you?

The Whole New Look

The Theme

Have finally got down to customizing this theme as you can see. Have converted it to a 3-column layout with two sidebars to the right. The inner sidebar directly relates to the post, while the outer sidebar gives you things you can do on the site!
I plan on releasing this theme as Connections Revolutions. However, I have a few things I want to add to this theme before I do that.

Now XHTML 1.1 Compliant

Have been meaning to this for quite a while. This site is now XHTML 1.1 compliant!
This does mean that all links now will open in this window itself. While I prefer opening offsite links in new windows, XHTML 1.1 changed that behavior.
Besides this, I sure had to do a great deal of editting on a lot of posts and pages! It’s done now. If you find anything amiss, please do comment below.

Google Search integrated

I have integrated Google Adsense search into the site. If you can’t find what you are looking for with the inbuilt search, you have the option of using Google. Alternatively, use Google Search directly.
I still plan on a few more tweaks like choosing which search you want from the box to the right and better display on the results page. But that’s later.

Easy Browsing

You can now browse from post to post. When you are one one post, you can view links above it leading to the previous and next posts.

New Pages

A few more pages have been added to this site.

In view to encourage comments, you will now find a Comment Policy and Privacy Policy in addition to the Rules.

Are you interested in advertising on this site. Then this page will tell you more.

That’s it for now. Do comment and let me know what you like / don’t like (no abuses please) about this blog. Keep the suggestions coming. What would you like to see?
