Browseable List Backend Upgrades

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

We did a lot of reworking of the internals of our browse pages.  All will look the same, but there have been some significant changes under the hood. Most of the code has been revised and greatly optimized, and should be significantly more efficient!

DriverGuide is now powered by PHP 5

Friday, September 18th, 2009

We just completed the upgrade to PHP 5.  With a site as big and complex as ours, upgrading from PHP 4 was no simple matter!  We had to test, and test, and test, and fix lots of little issues that we expected, and some we didn’t.  But, it’s now done and we are live!  Hope PHP 6 won’t be coming soon!

Google Language Translations Available

Monday, September 7th, 2009

You may notice in the header of each page we now have little flags indicating a few of the most common languages of our members.  Click one and see the site in that language!  Google has taken an interesting approach, combining automated language translation with user-submitted improvements.  Vive la difference!
