In order to simplify our Content Management System (CMS) backend and make the portal page more useful, I have made a few changes to the site.

First, let me emphasize that this is not an attempt to recreate the *nuke featureset or a shift towards a Nerf Evolved style content development philosophy. I am working very hard to keep the NerfHaven feel throughout and make things more consistent from page to page.

I have removed Movable Type from CMS duties in favor of using the forum itself for News and Articles and an open source comic management tool called iStrip for Death by Foam. The Modification and Homemade sections will remain static unless I find some compelling reason to do otherwise.

What this means for you:

- I will be adding more forum-related features to the portal in the future.

- You can now comment on News and Articles.

- Death by Foam will be reconfigured by tomorrow so expect some cool strips from Groove.

Perhaps when you post an articale, you could put the authors name somewhere. From first glance it looks like you've written all of them.

The author's name (and date written) is currently in the post description field - which doesn't show on the portal. Future articles will actually be posted by the author so it won't be a problem once these articles get scrolled off the main page.

I have to say the new layout is growing on me. The only thing that annoys me just a little is the sidebar with the recent activity. I wish the threads were on the same line with their latest authors, just to save some space, but that will shrink the right half of the screen. I'll get used to it I guess.

will the afformentioned "kharma" or "respect" systems be included in this set of ch-ch-ch-changes, or does that come later. i know iBoard fucked your code by updating, so i'm just looking for a progress report.

Respect and Karma are forthcoming, in that order.

This has nothing to do with either, it's just a hack to Invision so that I don't have to use seperate CMS anymore.

Interesting, your using the same logic as I do for managing NE. It'll be interesting to see how you handle it, may give me some ideas for NE.

Nice job by the way, though I would put a seperate section at the top for NH stuff, like how you had a paragraph about the site before.

If you need some help with any of the PHP you can always ask me, am I quite adept at it these days, and InvisionBoard is very simiolar to IkonBoard (They were programmed by the same guy), so I may know some solutions to problems you're having.
