Querystring+archive improvements:

  1. m= : I extended the m= behaviour. This is how it will work: when you'll put m=2001, it will search for all posts of 2001, then when you put m=200106 it will search for every post made in June, m=20010606 will search for posts on the 6th of June, then if you search for 2001060600 it will display posts made on that day, between midnight and 1h in the morning (12AM and 1AM, for you AM/PM people out there), then if you want you can ask for m=200106060041 for posts made at 00:41, and then finally, if you're really blunt, you can add two more digits and search for the seconds. How's that for precision ?

  2. w= : New, the week pointer. You can link to posts made a specific week, between 1 and 53 (because there can be a start of a 53th week in the year). You would have to use the m= argument too, for example it could look like this: b2.php?m=2001&w=1, for posts of the 1st week of this year.

  3. weekly archives are on their way, thanks to the w= argument. I have plans for a totally configurable thing, you could have "10/22/2001 to Oct 28 2001" for example: there would be three boxes: the first is a date format box for the first part, the second would be the separator (here: "to"), and the third would be another date format box. You could of course leave one of them blank, and use "week of " as the separator, and "M jS" as the second date format, to have "week of Oct 22nd" as the archive link. That leaves some possibilities to you, doesn't it ?

Sweet! Very sweet! =) Not only you are addressing a few requests with this improvments, like Shaoqi's or Daynah's weekly archive request as this leaves a lot of room for manoeuvre for things like displaying past or archived entries.
Nice work!! When can we test it? =)

Maz, there will be comment flood protection in this new version. I just didn't announce it there yet, as the feature is not clearly defined yet. Just because I don't announce it, doesn't mean it's not there ; )

Ian, it is a much needed feature for some users, that's why I implement it. If it didn't serve any purpose other than 'hey look at me i'm a leet coder', I wouldn't even have thought of it.

It's in the Options page. You can't disable it, but you can make it be 0 seconds, that's like disabling it.

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
