Search facility

Saturday, April 29th, 2006

I am really pleased with the search page i’ve managed to put together today, niftily using AJAX thanks to a little bit of help :) I have tested it but there could well be errors remaining. If anything funny happens please let me know!
The only thing i don’t like about it is the pagination – [...]

Advertisements

Saturday, April 29th, 2006

I have signed up to Google AdSense so that i can put a little box of advertisements at the bottom of each MyChores page. I hope this won’t be a problem for anybody using the site. I’m just thinking i may as well put some on – they’re easy to do, and i think they’ll [...]

Weekly email notifications

Saturday, April 29th, 2006

If daily notifications are a bit too annoying, you can now try weekly notifications! Just edit your profile and choose the day of the week that you’d like to receive your weekly email.

The email example i copied was to send an email to the user after registering [...]

A bit of progress

Sunday, April 16th, 2006

As my partner just pointed out, i have a logo now, so it’s time to make another post! Okay, it’s not a great logo, but it’ll do until some kind person offers to make me a better one! I’m not much of a graphic designer myself, heheh!
I have also just done a tour, which was [...]

Pre-beta Version 0.0000001

Friday, April 14th, 2006

So … mychores.co.uk has begun to see the light of day! For months this has been an idea floating around in my mind, gradually gaining form and structure.
Thanks to the most excellent Ruby on Rails, I have managed to put this all together in about 3 weeks! I must say, it’s been a joy learning [...]
