Small delays in tutorial approval, click tracking

Posted over 10 years ago — 5 comments

Just wanted to pop in and mention that there was a glitch in tutorial processing over the last few days. If you've experienced a backlog of your tutorials not going up in the customary 24 hours, well, that's fixed now. There was a funny, rather unique situation with IP addresses that goofed it up, of all things. After a few hours, things should slide back to normal again.

Yes, I know I've been less visible on the site over the last few weeks, with very minimal new features coming in. This will be slowly changing over the next few weeks, so sit tight for the time being. Apologies for the inactivity to this point. :)



Playing email catch-up

Posted over 10 years ago — 12 comments

My apologies to anyone who has sent an email to me recently and haven't yet gotten a reply. I just finished up finals and I have just moved halfway across the country, so life has been a bit hectic, to say the least. Over the next day or two I hope to make a big dent on getting back up to date and fixing a bug or two. Along those lines- new featured tutorials are more or less on hold for the next 24-48 hours while I squash a rare (but persistent) bug.

After I'm caught up with emails and all the not-so-fun administrivia aspects of Good-Tutorials, I can get started on getting back to coding fun and exciting new stuff.

Have a good one!



JavaScript Tutorials

Posted over 10 years ago — 9 comments

With Flash released earlier and CSS and HTML tutorials added recently, it seemed suitable to finish up the major portions of client-side development today with JavaScript tutorials. Have a ball learning about adding some dynamic user interactions to your website.

Yes, I realize the problem here: with more and more topics getting added, some portions of the site get a little bit hairy. There will be a refresh for the sidebar here shortly, and hot on its heels will be a few smaller changes for the tutorial submission form (since I know at this point it can be a real pain to scroll through all of those entries).

Enjoy some JavaScript.



User pages, checking your tutorial comments

Posted over 10 years ago — 7 comments

So, in a bit of a surprise move even for myself, I apparently kept on going from the comment restyling and went ahead and added some to your user pages. There's some new styling for your user profile (my profile, for example), but the bigger addition is the ability to see who's been commenting on your tutorials.

This is a request I've gotten more than a few times the past couple weeks, and I'm happy to finally be able to include it. What's more, you'll now have an RSS feed that you can subscribe to from that page, so if you're a tutorial author you can submit your new tutorial, subscribe to your RSS feed for comments, and you'll get any new comments on your tutorials piped directly to your RSS reader. It's a quick and easy way to help you stay on top of what people are saying about your work.



Updating comments

Posted over 10 years ago — 9 comments

Tonight I went in and cleaned up the look of comments a little bit more. I think they're a bit cleaner overall now. I also wanted a way to identify moderators and myself (for those of you who don't know me) so that tutorial authors can know where the feedback's coming from, so to speak. Hopefully that will reduce some confusion in the future.

In other words, I just wanted to make comments a little more discussion-like, which is a direction we'll be heading more towards over the coming weeks and months.

Comment away. :)
