Just Headlines back

The "Just Headlines " feature is back.

When you are viewing a topic you will see a link near the top of the center column that says, "Click here to shift to just headlines." Once this is toggled you will see only headlines as you page through the content or you choose a new topic.

When you are viewing "Just Headlines," the link at the top of the center column switches to "Click here to shift to headlines and text." Clicking on the link switches back to the traditional view with a 300 word length limit.

Sound of knuckles knocking on noggin

Apparently I've fixed the problems with displaying the topic content within ipsoSacto. The long posts are chopped down to about 300 words and a link to the full post is add -- and appears to be the right link!

I'm still working on getting the headline-only feature back.

Bigger deal than I thought

I've been working for a couple of hours rebuilding how ipsoSacto takes the Google Reader's shared pages and reformats them to display the topics.

I think I have everything working EXCEPT the 200 word limit. Right now, when you select a topic you see the entire posts. Eventually, I hope to restore the word limit on posts.

Also, I noticed the "headlines only" function no longer works. Sheesh! I'll get to that after I fix the word limit.

Arrrrgh! The "Read the full blog item" links are all screwy again today. At least the "More [topic] Blog Items" link at the bottom of each topic appears to still be functional.

I'm going to turn off the "Read the full blog item" link since you can click on the title of the post and get there that way. Unfortunately, the FTP server is not working (!) and therefore I will have to wait until this evening to make the changes.

I am such a dilettante.

If you see anything ELSE that's not working as expected, use the contact form to tell me.

Sorting out some problems

Google Reader has changed the formatting of the "shared" pages that I use at ipsoSacto to display the various topics.

The "More [topic] blog items" link wasn't working. I've fixed that.

I'm still having problems with the "Read the full blog item" links. Most of these are working, but some are still broken. You will find the link at the top of the item will take you to the full article.

If you notice anything that is doesn't work as expected, please let me know.
