Stamp Quick-Locator

| May 27, 2010

This is another one that will happen as soon and the databases are up and running, and I figure out how: A Box on every page that you can type the scott’s number in and be taken directly to that stamp in the database.  This will probably be in the accordion panel menu at the top-right […]

Private Forums or Chat rooms?

| May 26, 2010

A “private” discussion area in the FORUM or possibly reserve-n-invitation only chat meeting rooms for the community to use. This one’s not high on the list as I’m not sure how useful it would be on a site of this type. I also don’t know the demands on the hosting and coding side but I’m […]

Chat?

| May 26, 2010

A ‘chat’ area for live conversations… Not sure I see a use for one on this type of site but if enough people are interested I’d consider it. Comments?

Downloads

| May 26, 2010

An area on the site for users to download files, stamp photos, printable album pages and other related graphics collections. This would also be a good place to put demo versions of available software and reviews of them.

A stamp Identification “engine”.

| May 26, 2010

A stamp identification “engine” with a dozen or so standard fields to sort by; the user can fill out as much as you know about a stamp and be presented with a list of possible identifications and links to those issues. I’ve wanted one of these for my own use over the years. I see […]

A stamp or related item identification challenge.

| May 26, 2010

This would run weekly or  as frequently as reasonable.  Maybe I should put a time limit on how long one goes without a winner. Than do I add clues, jut post the answer or keep it for later? Sorry you don’t actually win the item in question… The first to correctly identify the stamp’s Scott’s # or item […]

One S or two?

| May 24, 2010

I have noticed that a lot of people have been searching for Coney Stamps (coneystamps.com) rather than the correct URL for Coney’s Stamps (coneysstamps.com)  so I just bought the coneystamps.com domain and will put a redirect on it so people will wind up in the right place afterall. Jeff

Work on the back end…

| May 24, 2010

For ease of administration I ventured into the realm of server side includes (ssi). I had a bit of a struggle with it at first, as every site I visited seemed to show a different syntax but I got it working in the end. For those who are interested here is the syntax I found […]

Another productive week!

| May 24, 2010

Well this weekend has been productive. There are several new things that you’ll notice about website but most of the work done this past week has been the behind the scenes stuff making the site a little easier to administer. One thing you’ll notice is that the top menus are now in sync; they were […]

I broke my site!

| May 24, 2010

I broke my site! Well, not really… It was intentional and necessary… Kinda After reviewing answers to my question regarding combining .css and .js files , it was still nagging at the back of my brain so I did a little research. I probably had more .css and .js than anyone realized.  The total number […]
