Coding Progress and the Operation Smile Fundraiser

As I have posted on Twitter and Facebook, the basic codes that I needed for posting new blog entries and editing the existing ones are done. I used an open source javascript WYSIWYG editor called TinyMCE and as you can see with this post (I am using the editor as I type this), it works just fine. It even has some built in emoticons! I won’t be posting a screenshot of my dashboard yet since it’s still pretty chaotic and I’m still thinking of a good layout for it but I will once I get things going the way I want them to. 😉

I’ve also done the comment box on each post so you can now post a comment on any of my posts if ever you feel like saying something. Each comment is moderated after submission so if you submitted a comment on any of the posts, you won’t be seeing your comment until I approve it. If I found your comment offensive, I most likely won’t approve it. I moderate the comments through my dashboard as well.

I am planning on making CMS’s for the other pages here on the website and once I wrap the blog and comments CMS codes up, I’ll start working on the one for the podcasts and then the projects page. I would like to manage the contents of all the pages without having to do some hardcoding every time so I hope to get things working soon.

The current progress of my work is making me quite excited with this website! 😀 I’d have to admit that this is actually the first time I’ve done something this special for myself and I’m loving every inch of the excitement it gives me!

On a sidenote, actor Zachary Levi is an ambassador for Operation Smile and he has teamed up with The Nerd Machine and Zachary Levi Fan for a fundraiser for Operation Smile. Operation Smile   is a charitable organization that provides free surgeries for children around the world with cleft lipt, cleft palate, and other facial deformities.

I’ve been helping with promoting the fundraiser since June 1st that’s why it is a featured link on my website right now. Our goal is to reach $3000 by July 1st. So far we have raised $1328.86 and it would really mean a lot to us if we reach or surpass our goal by July 1st.

If you donate to the fundraiser, you might get a chance to win a Chuck Cast signed poster (yep, a lot of autographs from the Chuck Cast 😉 ) and other Chuck-related items! The fundraiser is organized by Hayley Stirling of ZacharyLeviFan.com. For more information about the fundraiser, click here.
