Technology Update

A quick update on some changes on the site:

  • Twitter posting should now be working properly again, so most of the posts on the site will be showing up on the cruiskeen twitter account automatically.  This was messed up for a while due to the fact that the code used the old Twitter authentication,which Twitter turned off - this now goes through the new OAuth authentication and is working again.
  • You should now be able to log in to the site with your Twitter account - this is experimental, it may go away again if it's deemed problematic
  • You'll note that you can now "like" pages on Facebook.  This is also experimental, and we're fooling around with how it is formatted, where it appears, etc.  Look for more social networking integration int he future. At the moment I'm a little concerned that the Facebook features slow the site down a little and make it dependent on Facebook being live - which it wasn't for a while yesterday.

If you have any strong feelings about any of these features (Or others you'd like to see) leave a comment.
