Now you can add tags too!

May 10, 2010

Well, you’ll be able to in 24 hours or so, but I wanted to document what I got done this weekend.

This is what I accomplished over the weekend. A dialog (pictured for Finch on the Novel TagShadow) where you can add tags, driven by data that was already on the page, so it’s fast. I also cleaned up the data and stored it elsewhere on the page so that successive calls to the dialog would be even faster. I settled on a method for uniquely identifying visitors without forcing a login. I wrote and tested the AJAX connectivity that I’ll use to save the tags when the dialog is closed. While I was working on the page I also fixed a CSS issue that had been bugging me.

All I have left to do is the database work on the server side of the AJAX call. I should be able to knock that out tonight! Then I’ll probably finish off some data importing that I’m almost done with. After that … well … I’ve been brainstorming some VERY ambitious (yet subtle) functionality that I’m excited to start working on.

    And the “Add Tag” functionality now works. Some TagShadows may still be cached server side, but explore around a bit and you’ll find one you can add tags to!
