Another Site Update

It’s time to announce another site update.  This one is pretty minor, but hopefully visitors to the site actually use it.  I have update how Mr Papa’s World handles it’s archives of old posts.

In the sidebar, you will see a block that lists all the archive information that is available.  You can search/peruse the archives by author, category, date or tags.  I also have the polls archive available.  After selecting how you want to browse the archives, you will be presented with list of items available under that archive type.

When you select the sub-type (ie author name, category name, month or tag), you will be presented with a list of posts that match that criteria.  Each post will give you an excerpt of that entire post.  This is where the fun begins.  This is my first foray in the world of Ajax.  Ajax is neat in that it allows you to add/change content on a page without reloading the entire page.  In this case, if the excerpt interests you, click on the show entire post link and the excerpt will change to the entire post as if you had visited that particular post page.

You can hide posts that you have ajaxed or you can ajax open additional pages too.  Hopefully, this new feature makes searching the archives easier and more user friendly.  As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.
