This month's update has arrived.  There were many changes to the site code, new features, bug fixes, etc.  Keep in mind we are still in a beta state.  So if you find a bug or encounter a problem, please let us know about it.

Let's start with the nifty new stuff.
New Features

  • Story Code Groups - Story codes are now assigned to story code groups, to hopefully make it easier to select the story code(s) you're looking for.
  • Story View Chapter Jumper - you can now easily jump from one chapter to another when you are reading a story.
  • Site Caching - the site code is now caching certain items to help with load times.  As the site grows, I'll continue modifying it to support such features.
  • Ability to Jump to Last Chapter from Story Browser - anytime you're looking at a listing of stories. if you click on the number of chapters the story has, you'll be taken to the last chapter in the story.

Bug Fixes

  • Further Formatting Fixes - fixed more random formatting issue.

The list may not look impressive, but I think I put more work into this month's update than the previous.

  • Ability to Jump to Last Chapter from Story Browser -
  • Story View Chapter Jumper -
These two are very sweet and improved the archive immediately Smiley

  • Story Code Groups -
In order to really feel this one I would have to post something Smiley
Hopefully some recent posters will share feedback on this feature.

  • Site Caching -
The pages do seem to load a bit faster Smiley

Bug Fixes - can't see them, but I am sure that they make for a smoother ride in this fast red Corvette, hehe!

Looking good.

Great work! 

The site already works better than most of the other archives I've tried.  The Story Code groups look pretty good.  Much less overwhelming.  I might just have to find something to post soon so I can make use of them.   Wink

I'm glad everybody is liking the changes so far. 

One of the bug fixes is with how the code calculates the word count for the chapter.  It's not a 100% accurate, but it is far closer now when it does its rounding than it ever was before.

*tips hat*

Happy you like it, Ms. Gin.  Took a little brainstorming on the part of the staff, plus a little wave from 'Trae's magic wand, but I think it definitely improves the interface.

OMG, I have to tell you I posted my first ficcish thing last night and the Story Code groups made life SO much easier! I must confess, I was a little overwhelmed at first until I actually did the posting and this place makes posting fic SO damned easy. Love it!!!   Grin

I'm glad you're so happy with it.  A site of this nature revolves around making it easy for it's readers and it's writers.
