Chilly mid-summer Sunday is ideal day too waste time behind a computer screen. So I decided to test few additions to si.blogs I had laying around for some time and here it is: si.blogs 2.5. Now with 20% more fat! 

This is that is new:

  • Not just blogs, now we also feature posts: yes, it's possible to read si.blogs right from the site! Latest posts link will give you last 500 posts from all the blogs. I think this could be big. The design is non-existent, I'll have to work on it a bit more.
  • Podcast support: blogs that have podcasts have their own icon and a filter. Right now there are only two in the category but si.blogs is future proof!
  • FavIcons support: the favicon icon is display on blog info page. Putting the icons on the front page was a bit too much.
  • New feed design: the text in the feed is somehow improved.
  • About: finally a page about si.blogs and its history and so on. I'll add more with time.
  • Enhanced FAQ and help links: I added some new FAQs and put some ?s in the menus that lead to explanations on the FAQ page.

Any comments and bug reports are welcome!

Great addition, this 'latest posts' thing! Makes browsing the si.blogs site a whole new experience. Some post titles just force you into clicking them. :)

Also the favicons support is cute.

But I have one remark. Maybe it would be better to replace the ?s in menus with something else (no idea currently with what, maybe with a tiny image), because now (at least to me) it looks like your asking something or that you are not completely sure (with 'dead ?' for example). (OK, I just saw you changed their colour, makes it better.)

Nice work all in all.

Tnx, andper. I didn't change the ?'s color, it probably changed when you clicked it. I'm not sure if ther are different colors for link states in CSS. I'll have to take a look. There is another bug wih menus, so I'll fix in ni the next days.

I'm little bit dissapointed though, the "latest posts" is barely used. I hope users will eventually find in and start using it.
