Thanks to a lot of help from Jared (well, he designed the whole thing), I now have a new default theme in place. I like it because it looks newer and fresher than the old theme... but worry not - it isn't done yet! As always, let me know what you think.
Unforunately, though, there have still been some spammers getting through to my site... though there are a lot less of them than there used to be! For them to successfully post, they need to actually visit the page they want to spam, and then post with all of the data being returned, and if they pass the http:BL test then, and only then, will the comment be posted. I am still mulling around with how I want to do a captcha thing for comments but I am still unsure of how or even if I want to implement that. To help with the spam, I finally added the code to allow me to delete a comment through the website - which is a huge blessing, since I only need to click a button now rather than execute the stored procedure in the database!
Believe it or not, but I have a few personal posts lined up to be added - it's about time right? Stay tuned!
