Being Nice to Googlebots

About 1.5 weeks ago, someone asked how to make his GL site more google friendly. Here are their own published guidelines on how to do that. I also visited a few webmaster forums. In those, others said Google will penalize your site if you use the illicit practices pointed out in their guidelines. Although getting links to your site are important, they also recommended staying far away from any programs or sites which specialize in reciprocal links. Many of the participants in these end up getting penalized.

Geeklog Time... \'whitepaper\'

I've been working with Geeklog for more than six months now, and during that time the most often requested feature that I've seen has been for better (or any) handling of setting time zones different from the server and user preferenced time zones. To this end, I have suggestions on how to handle 'time' for possible use in Geeklog 2 and perhaps for future inclusion in the 1.3.x branch.

These are simple, straight forward recommendations meant more to spurn discussion then to be directly implemented into the codebase. However, these ideas are well thought out and have undergone some 'sanity' review.

Separate Comments From Stories In Search

Is there any plugin/hack/setting that allows for the separation of comment search results and story search results? Currently, if you do a search, the search script lists all the relevant stories and comments into one long list. If the comment has the same title as the story, it only confuses people who think \"why is it listing the same thing twice\"? Is there any way to perhaps indent the comments beneath the story,...or create two separate sections alltogether?

Thanks for any help.

Calendar module in GL 2

How sweet would it be if the GL calendar could be integrated with the Mozilla calendar or Apple\'s iCal application? Both use the same standard vCal format, so by implementing such capability, it would provide web-based calendars for workgroups, allowing them to share calendars, while not requiring that they enter in duplicate every event (once into iCal, once into GL).

iCal supports published calendars (via webDAV), and there are already projects on Source Forge that are using php to implement web-based calendars. When a user creates an event on the published calendar, it could be syncronized to the GL database.

Just some food for thought. By the way, how is GL 2 progressing? (We\'re we promised weekly updates a while back?)

Hack Request

Just an idea for a feature/hack. . . Since geeklog already has a built in calendar, I think it would be cool if there were a way for members to get a reminder of events (private calendar) before they happen. Just a basic email reminder service using the calendar to hold the events.

The calendar doesn\'t seem to be used as much as it could be. I think this might be a way to bring some life into it. People will start using their personal calendar to add reminders they want emailed to them.

I\'m still pretty new at coding or else I would just write this hack myself. Hopefully, someone better at writing code will find this to be a worthy project.

Several people here have mentioned how they tried PHPnuke, found out how much better it is, and abandoned Geeklog forever. Being curious myself, I decided to download PHPnuke and play with it and find out where they were coming from.

Here are the observations I made of how it is better/worse in comparison to GeekLog..

Hi there,

I just got the code for this COOOOL site, it\'s great really, I like it and I am goning to use it in my site soon.

Just one thing that I like you developer to add.

* you had a variable named ($LANG_CHARSET) in your language files which makes it easy to decode other languages by browser. BUT

1. I would like you to add the following variables as a standard so your code could be used for internatioal languages such as BIdirectional languages that are displayed from RIGHT TO LEFt:

$LANG_DEFAULT_DIR = \"RTL\" \' RTL for right to left and LTR for left to right direction.
This variable will be appened to the <html> tag as <html dir=rtl> which indecates the direction of page.

Improve block admin screen with new column

Hi,

I\'m installing gl 1.3.6 and have noticed that the block admin screen lists all the blocks nicely but does not have a column to show if the block is enabled/disabled. Caused me no end of grief when I was convinced the menu plugin wasn\'t working when it was actually a block that wasn\'t enabled.

Just a thought for the dev team.

Has anyone integrated phpWiki into geeklog yet? I really need a wiki for one of my sites and will try to work on it over the holidays, but I dont want to re-create the wheel if someone already has done it...

If no-one has done this, and you are interested in working on it with me, let me know :)

Windows and lib-common.php A work arround

I was tooling arround with geeklog on my laptop at school the other day. Which happens to Run Windows 2k. (I have to have this for work. ugh.) Anyways, after getting mega sick of being able to view but not edit the code in windows with dreamweaver mx, notepad, wordpad, amongst others, I found an editor that you can use that doesnt cause the annoying blank page on Windows systems. Word 2002. Open it up as an asci file and look, view and edit away. Just choose save, Thats it.

Should allow those stuck on, or happy with Windowz to make modifcations, edits ectra without needing a unix box to change the lib file
