Comixpedia Upgrades Continuing

Just a note on Comixpedia upgrades.

I've turned on the WYSIWYG editor for all of you (what you see is what you get). Please let me know if you don't see this and what browser you're using. It's a port of the TinyMCE editor to Drupal and I've used it without problems for a couple months now. When you're using this editor don't use html other than what the buttons below the input box support. (If you really like writing out html by hand than (1) click the "disable rich-text" link and then (2) goto "Input Format" and choose Filtered HTML)

Also, I've also turned off bbcode. You can still "quote" people and that does show up as bracket – quote – bracket when you click "disable rich-text" but that's the only bbcode-ish thing on the site now.

Second – I opened up the "topics" on the site to "freetagging" which means when you post a blog or a forum topic you can tag it with whatever descriptive words you want. Just remember to be descriptive – the point of the tags is to help people find your posts when they search the site.

Third – I'm experimenting with adding a rolling feed of creators blog, webcomic updates and blogs about webcomics (see the lower left hand column). You can subscribe to the collected feeds of any of these categories of feeds here. You can also write a blog post here about any of these items simply by clicking the little "b" icon next to each entry.

The code on drupal is great for this kind of thing, but it may be too much work for me to add RSS feeds. Tell me if you think it's a useful feature or not! (also if you want to add your RSS feed to it post a comment and tell me which category the feed goes in.)
