The Pinkish Pages Update
September 16th, 2008 by Babs

Yup. You read that right. Despite getting absolutely no response from my friends on LJ and IJ, I’m resurrecting the Pinkish Pages. A number of folks on the fanfiction forums Max belongs to apparently are interested in my bringing it back to life. Especially if I republish the fics that were archived at the original Pinkish Pages. Well, I got plenty of them, as well as a bunch of fics that I received permission to post but never got around to coding, so the new archives will have a good deal to offer even before new authors begin submitting.

I’ve found a template that would work with multi-authors and could be adapted to an appropriate Pinkish Pages theme. I’ve added a few widgets and plugins that I feel would be beneficial, such as the rating plugin. This would give visitors the opportunity to offer input without having to write a full comment. I’ve tweaked how the posts display so that authors can include a description as an excerpt, and that is all that shows until the viewer clicks the story’s title. There’s an author page so visitors can not only read a particular author’s already existing posts, but can subscribe to their individual feed. About the only concern I still have is listing the authors and their works in the sidebar.

I’ve got at least one more page to write before I can think about posting the old fics. Then I need to copy the theme, plugins, et al over to the Lavender Room, tweak the color scheme and post all the old fics from that archive. Oh, and I need to install the Google XML plugin to keep Google and other search engines up to date automatically.

Needless to say, I’m very busy.
