The New Blog System
28th September 2012
Assalamu Alaykum The blog has had a major update. No updates for almost 2 years as you can see from the date of my last entry here. So how major? Well, all the pages have been updated with newer scripts, styles, features and layout. It's been a while but Alhamdulillah I've finally got around to it. Many unneeded things were removed as well as many needed things being added. Some of the new features include: - Better management area - BBCODE buttons for easier formatting - Each blog now has it's own space and no links to other blogs will be seen from that blog - Categorize posts now with categories - More which you can discover by logging in or simply browsing Comments welcome Suggestions appreciated Bug reports important Jazakumullah Wassalam

looks ok on the blog but i'm a bit lost right now, i'm sure loads of work has gone in so jazakallaahu khayra...will know more after i try out some things...just wanted to enquire why the banner is missing

Blogger's Reply:
The banner is still there. It's just a fixed size now so you may need to update it by uploading a new or edited one. Please let me know if you're still having any problems

You can use the search at the top like before or click on all blogs at the top to view a list of all available blogs

Jazakallah. The search option did not show anything when i tried it before but now it does so I can get to the blog but its become more difficult to find a particular post. Can we have categories? Before we had to go through months but now even thats not an option..sorry to be so complaining but categories on each blog would help a lot insha Allah and also readers can choose whatever interests them
Blogger's Reply:
This new update already has a category option but it won't be of any help until the bloggers actually add categories and assign old and new entries into those categories.

Banner: just uploaded it again and it shows as uploaded but does not show up
Blogger's Reply:
To me, your same banner shows up. Are you sure you uploaded a new banner from "Settings" and you didn't upload a new file from "Manage Files"??

Yes I uploaded it from settings

I cannot see it and i've tried to log out to check if i can see it if not logged in, but am unable to do so.

I think there may be a browser issue. Can you let me know what browser you're using and I'll test it on that to make sure. So far, a few banners have been updated on some blogs so it is working. I think Internet Explorer might be a problem, it almost always is. Can you try a different browser too? Jazakillah

Tried it from firefox and though its visibe the top and the bottom of the banner is cut off so it looks wierd. Jazakallah for your help...sorry for takleef
Blogger's Reply:
The banner can only be a maximum of 150px to maintain layout. The instructions are right below the upload form. If you need one made, please send instructions via email. It doesn't take long to make and it improves the look

ok jazakallah. Can my old one be resized?

A few things, not sure if should post here but here goes:
1. after viewing a blog,i click on view all blogs and this msg appears:
The webpage cannot be found
so i have to enter the site and then go back

2. forum cannot be accessed from blogs any more

3. Is it possible to have names of bloggers on the "latest blog entries" along with the titles so one's favaourite can be quickly chosen?
Blogger's Reply:
Good idea. Blogger's name will be added to latest posts list.

I was just wondering why the date is mentioned twice on each post. Is it possible to remove the date in the box as perhaps it makes the page too crowded? juat a suggestion
Blogger's Reply:
Wsalam, one is a calendar type display and the other is on the header of the post. Not together really so this is useful to easily find dates if required.

aslm...sorry but have to report this: categories maybe messed up? 3 posts from "Prophet Muhammad" are in "Matters of the Heart" and i've checked in case i had made a mistake
Blogger's Reply:
Wsalam. Jazakillah for these reports. I checked properly and found the cause. Categories should work properly now. The entries from each category will show as expected.

jazakallaah.the category "matters of the heart" still contain 3 posts which are supposed to be in "Prophet MUhammad" even though i took them out totally and then put them in the right category so still something wrong

Also will you be able to fix it so that the banner is visible with explorer?
Blogger's Reply:
Internet explorer header issue sorted. Do CTRL+F5 to ensure it reloads the css file. As for matter of the heart category, I am not sure why it's loading all categories in that so I'll look into that soon inshaAllah. Jazakillah for your help and feedback.

I wanted the blog entries to be listed according to dates but cannot find that option, is there such an option?
Blogger's Reply:
Wsalam, simply click the column header DATE to order by date and clock it again to order by date ascending/descending. i will look into the other issues soon. Jazakillah. Ws
