BETA: UGN News System - 10/02/03 07:22 AM

Soon we're going to be using the UGN Security BBS as the news sytem. This will make the site far easier to maintain as well as easier to assign news admin's and have staff submit stories for the site.

For now, we have a beta version of it available here for everyone to take a look at.

For now we're planning on keeping the current system until we can get everything setup correctly with the scripts (still a few minor errors).

Note, if you recieve the error: "Warning: file(/var/www/html/ubb/Forum26/.cgi): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/news.php on line 57
" it's common, we know about it, it's what happenes when too many streams are selected when they don't exist, it'll be gone once 15 posts are in the tech news section and 5 in the site news section.

2 suggestions:

The listing of news articles like

this | that | this | this


isn't very easy on the eyes, especially with alot of articles and using longer headlines.

Quote:
UGN Security News Headlines
| No recovery until 2006 for IT contractor market || Which Linux Distro Is Best For You? || Florida Dorms Lock Out P2P Users || Linux--The Most Secure OS of All? || Linux expands in Australasia - helped by SCO suit || Will IM replace e-mail? || USB Gadgets May Not Work Fast As Claims || Philips Says New Technology Boosts DVD Capacity || Internet Group Threatens Site Finder || Sony to Unveil All-In-One PSX Game Device Next Week || Windows Small Business Server Priced To Beat Linux || Microsoft Linux Chief: Resist Short-Term High Of Linux Margins || U.S. may challenge Oracle || Microsoft sued for security faults || Senate aide fired for offensive Web site |
And perhaps a VIEW ARTICLES button or something to bring them back up to the top so they can see the list of articles again, instead of the scrolling.

A 2 column list? Anything with good spacing. I am not trying to be picky, and maybe its just the appearance with my browser and my system. I haven't heard anyone else complain.
