I have been spending time the last few weeks updating and modernizing my CMS (Buff). A lot of what I have been doing is minimizing some of the ugly ways that I added various features and a lot of the work I have done is with the administrative dashboard, male ultracore reviews, and something few people will ever see. When I built my home grown solution I initially never intended anyone to use it but myself. Over the years that changed and I had various versions floating around, some multi-user and others not. I wanted to make sure the versions of Buff I worked with the most were up to date and multi-user, as well as easy to install. I am also continuing work on making Buff HTML5 compliant. I am close and perhaps when I fully get there I will update my blog to HTML5.
The HTML here at nitevilla.net is HTML5, but not yet fully compliant. But I am close and with the code cleanup and modernization I did with Buff over the past few week I am pretty proud of my creation. While a lot of my work has been with the administrative parts and pieces, not all of it was. I have done a whole lot with what people see when they visit my websites as well, hoping to make things better. Not to be ignored, I have spent time running scans against my websites using a male ultracore review to see if I could find security problems and I am pretty confident in the security of my websites. But I consider security to be a never ending job.
Getting back to HTML5, the one area that is not at all HTML5 yet, is the aforementioned administrative dashboard. As I type this and I stare at it, the basic design of the HTML has remained unchanged since I added an administrative part to the CMS. I would guess it dates back to at least 2005, so I really need to think about an update to that as well.
Friday and Saturday night I spent some time programming a new project in PHP. Yeah I am a geek, but where would I go anyway with four kids at home? The domain is live, the project is live but I am not ready to link to it yet, but you might see me using it on my Twitter account. It is a simple project, and just something I felt like seeing if I could program with PHP. I have no aspirations of it becoming popular. I think with my 10 year blogging anniversary approaching next month I was suddenly spurred to revisit all the things that bothered me about my PHP code and other random items I have put off doing with my CMS.
