Facelift

I guess there's no reason to announce the new look, it's pretty self explaining. Let me know if there are any problems that you never had before though.

Sorry

Some x-rated links were posted to the forum for a couple hours. I suspect by an automated bot. Sorry it was up for so long, steps have been taken so that it doesn't happen again.

Where people paddle

I was browsing through this years website statistics and found some fun facts. Here's a list of places your fellow paddlers are from.

Happy New Year

Videoooos and web loooogs

Three new things:

  • When you post a link to a Google Video or Youtube video it shows up as the video!
  • Web logs are enabled for all users. See your 'My Account' page.
  • The main video section has also been updated.

Speedier website

The website should feel a little snappier -- page generation times were getting lengthy and slow at around 1.4 sec. Now it seems to be around .6 seconds. Should of done this ages ago, but forgot since the server os was reloaded a while back. That's all for tonight.

Formatting changes on text input... make your forum posts prettier

Some changes were made in the text input formatting. You can now make bold text and italic text easier. Also double dashes -- get converted to the longer, nicer looking em-dash. There are a number of other thing to like smart "quotes", but that covers the ones of most interest. The syntax is Markdown.

Map your canoe club

A couple features were added to the website last weekend. You can now add map coordinates on the canoe club listing page. This adds a Google Map link that allows you to find directions to a canoe club. Check it out on the canoe clubs page. If you don't see your club, you can login and add it. If there is no map for your club, edit the page to add it. I only mapped clubs that I could locate exactly, but if we all chip in it could be a real useful resource.

Also added a paddling link directory back in. Let me know if you have any problems or suggestions.

Aloha,

Popular page and a couple new videos

Some internal website upgrades make the forum look a little odd until it can be fixed. A new popular page is fun to check out. Also two contributed videos: A short, fun Ka'iwi Relay Clip and a longer Surfski with Kaihe Chong.

More website updates

Some updates made today may cause a few things, specifically the forum and event calendar, to look a little odd until I get the chance to fix it. On the bright side a couple new features like the popular page and image search are fun. Let me know if you encounter any other errors.
