Site Update

Boltprospects.com will be undergoing a much needed site upgrade tonight. Please bear with any strangeness....

BP Maintenance Today

I'll be doing maintenance on the BP site today (March 25). If you access, the site may not behave properly. I'll repost when all is well again.

BBCode and CSV Filter

After a number of days of posting content using the HtmlArea plug-in, I've decided to switch it off. The main reason for using it was the built in HTML table generation. But, in the end, I didn't like the way it created and formatted tables. In essence, it allowed too much flexibility in table generation, and I was looking for a way to lock down a single BP site style for our tables. There's a much better module for that called [b]CSV Filter[/b]. Also, I didn't like the way HtmlArea created all these new paragraphs. It just didn't feel *right*. Anyway, I turned it and the contextlinks module off.

Site Configuration Progress

Today... I think I've managed to finalize the user roles and permissions for the BP community. I also got the hourly cron job installed so that Drupal time-based events and triggers will be executed. Finally, I got the site locked down against non-friendly web crawlers per Nic Ivy's recommendations from http://njivy.org/node/677.

Next up to the plate are:

  • Getting a handle on the taxonomy of the site
  • Getting the forums up and running
  • Testing the user permissions using some fictious role-based users
  • Installation/configuration of the following plug-in modules: Attached Node, bookmarks, captcha, CSV-filter, Feedback, Glossary, Image, Image Filter, Image Assist, Notify, Print Friendly Pages, Quote, Title, Urlfilter, userposts

Welcome

Welcome to BoltProspects -- your online source for Tampa Bay Lightning Prospect News. Pardon the lack of content while the new site software is being setup and configured.

On behalf of the rest of the BP staff, we hope that BoltProspects becomes part of your daily hockey life.
