Based on user feedback and suggestions we've added some new categories, including Campbell and Roane County, the "grand divisions" and their metro areas, and a "KnoxViews Users" (for items of interest to participants here) under "community". We also added "Women's Issues" under "issues" (which was not an intentional omission, I just thought they were covered by the other topics but the Mrs. straightened me out), a "site info" category under "sections", and "elections" under "events". We also added "events" under "view by topic" so you can list events by type of event.

We also changed some settings for session/cookie timeout to hopefullly minimize being automatically logged out and forced to log back in. You may need to delete your existing site cookies for this to work. For Windows (2000/XP) this would be under c:\documents and settings\[your user id]\cookies. You can delete anything in this folder with "knoxviews" in the cookie file name.

If you have suggestions for more categories/topics, please let us know. We don't want to go crazy, but we want this feature to be as useful as possible. For example, we could have could have separate categories for "golden retrievers, poodles, schnauzers, etc." and "tabbys, cheshires, siamese, etc." or we could have "dogs" and "cats" or better yet "pets". At least that's my thinking.

OK, then.

Ok, so how do I post to the community blogs? Roane County, actually.

Told you I was stupid at this stuff.

Well, it isn't so much a community 'blog' as a category. Just post as you normally would and assign the "Roane County" category from the "Community" dropdown list. Then, visitors can see all "Roane County" related posts by anyone using "View by Topic" over on the left.

I'm looking at some other stuff to be able to better organize groups with their own memberlist subsets, pages, event calendars, mailing lists, etc.

I'm still looking for the $20 single malt scotch category.

(Heh. But if you haven't tried Sailor Jerry rum, perhaps you can get yourself a bottle. It's a good tipple.)

Anyway that the post writer can show up in the RSS feed? That would be pretty useful to us RSS people.

Good suggestion. There is no

Good suggestion. There is no way to do this at the present time, but I will see if I can add this funcionality, like maybe putting it as a second line under the title or something.

In the mean time, each individual user blog has its own RSS feed (click on the "[user]' blog] link for a post and see the XML button at the bottom). Not a great solution because you would have to add each user to your newsreader individually, and you wouldn't see new users's posts in your feed.

P.S. Does the formatting of a post show up properly in your newsreader? It appears to be included in the output, but the reader in this software appears to be stripping most of it.

Yeah, the post format shows

Yeah, the post format shows up fine in my reader (Feedreader 2.9) - so, that's not a problem for me. thanks! This site is a great thing!

Thanks for the inclusion of Campbell County. I'll be blogging quite a bit on the upcoming hearing for CCHS shooting suspect Kenneth Bartley, Jr. and other relevant stories to the area.
