EXIF data, no comments

Two changes of late: one, I've finally gotten around to displaying EXIF data along with photos in the gallery. Second, I've temporarily disabled commenting, as the comment script was being hit by spammers and I haven't yet had a chance to come up with a good countermeasure.

I've also been working on a feature list for a completely new image gallery system, since I've come to experience better ones and have realized that there are a bunch of things I don't like about the current one. Look for something like this to be rolled out in the next month or two, possibly earlier if things go well.


Performancing-enhancing features

I've just rolled out a change to the image gallery section that's really sped things up a bit. Caching can be a wonderful thing, especially when it removed the need to iterate through over a hundred directories, parsing an XML file in each of them.

Slightly less recent are a couple of other features. Also in the image gallery, I changed the layout somewhat and added fields for location data. It's only filled it for a few sections, but eventually I hope to have it all populated. The other change is the addition of pullquotes to text items, as seen in this recent update. It's still a bit rough, and I'm likely to play around with the appearance, but who knows how long that could take.

I've added a new section to the site where I've posted (and will continue to post) things I have written for The Stute, the student newspaper at Stevens. The new section can be found at http://phil.codeallday.com/stute/ or via a link to the right.
