Gelukkig nieuwjaar!!! (Flemish-Belgium)
Awesome...All these cool custom blog CMSes are making me want to drop WordPress.
I just have to try it for myself ;)
Also happy new year to all the commenters and of course you, Jonathan.
and to johan: Jij ook een gelukkig 2007!
I, too, am totally going to steal this idea. Just like I stole the fixed comment box. I may steal your glasses too if you don't watch out! :)
This is cool, and it gives you a nice way of seeing when a person first discovered your site (unless they lurked for a while).
Jonathan Snook: Are you using a custom CMS? If not, what CMS are you using?
Bah, scratch that. I just read Elliot Swan's comment.
Steve: it's a custom CMS I built using CakePHP.
What a great and original idea. (Really just posting to see what it looks like... )
Cool idea, kinda useless aside from seeing who the most active people are, but fun nevertheless. (Like Jeff, I might steal this idea too...if I ever find the time to get a blog up.)
Jonathan, I see you pass the email as a hash in the URL (I assume this is to get around disallowed characters, I recently wrote something about this on my own blog).
Would you mind commenting if you used a particular hash, and why? Does cake offer convenient encode/decode native functions?
Derek: I'm actually just using an MD5 to help protect the anonymity of people's email address.
As far as I know, Cake doesn't offer convenient encode/decode functions but by the same token, I've been happy with those already built into PHP. I don't believe Cake has the same allowable character filter that Code Igniter has. Whether that is good or bad, remains to be seen. In .NET, I know their acceptable characters filter is absolutely annoying. ymmv.
Thanks for mentioning CakePHP. I took a look at it and now I'm hooked!!
Very sweet. I have been looking at CakePHP for sometime, and my partner loves it.
I've seen this sort of thing on WordPress blogs before with the wp-stats plugin or whatever it's called, but never thought of implementing it into my own blog. It's quite neat, and I hope you don't mind if I consider 'stealing' it? ;)
