    To Be Continued...

    The site is relatively stable, so development has slowed but it is still ongoing. Updates are pushed to the site quickly when written, but you can also view the develpment branch of the site by specifying the 'dev' subdomain. Some things I'm thinking about adding are:

    • More debugging code! Included the output in a block at the bottom or top rather than in-line
    • Duplicate "items=*" for list pages. Currently this only works for articles (but I don't have enough to hit the page limit yet anyways).
    • Code to interpret a "lang=" argument. I plan to translate some articles to French as I'm currently working to improve that skill. However my French is still too bad to confidently add that. I also gave a decent effort to learning Esperanto and might translate things to that if I get really bored. This would require a separate "meta.php" and "content.php" file but other than that it would not be terribly difficult to select which file to load, fallback to English if necessary and suggest alternate languages on pages that provide it.
    • The initial revision of this site was written almost entirely in JavaScript (Proof) including a lot of wizz-bang flash stuff. I decided to refine everything down to just the essential functions (currently, that is this single file and a couple of things in-line). One flashy thing I did kind of like in moderation was weather effects to the home page. Now that there is a dedicated forecast page, I might add those back there. Some of this was ripped off from another site which also goes against the rest of the site, so if I add it back, it will be simplified and hand-written. I'd have to refresh my JS a bit for the precipitation, but cloud and sun are trivial with CSS.
    • For "offset=" greater than the number of elements in the array, correct to the total number minus the item count (or 0).
    • Accept an offset equal to the section heading text. Determine the offset to that heading automatically. This would allow for easier linking to relevant content that will remain accurate if the index of that section changes.
    • Optimize formatting in Firefox Reader View (I don't care about whatever browser you use).
    • Set variables equal to the current article topic for easier internal linking. This would be easy, but it would also mean going through and updating all of my old URLs. I'll probably stop being lazy after the heading text link feature gets added.
    • Redirect non-existent "topic" to either applicable topic list with an error instead of to 404.
