Roller Comments

The default comment form in Roller is pretty ugly. Not only does it use a <table> to layout the form, but it has invalid XHTML and JavaScript as well. With the new theme on this site, I re-worked much of the comments.vm macro and created a much prettier form. I was hoping to contribute a variation of this theme to Roller for 2.3, but it looks like it'll have to wait until 2.4. Rather than adding new macros for this theme, I'll be fixing all the themes to have a prettier comment form. You can track my progress on this issue using ROL-1131.

As far as this theme, I've named it "andreas08" after its designer. I hope to contribute something similar to what's on as part of 2.4. If you'd like to use this theme in your own Roller installation (before 2.4), let me know and I'll try to package up a download.

San Francisco - here I come!

The Ajax Experience I'm sitting in Denver's aiport, getting ready to jump on a plane and head to San Francisco for the Ajax Experience. Like most No Fluff shows, this one has 2-3 sessions I'd like to see during each time block. My primary goals are 1) to learn a lot 2) to blog about each session I attend, and 3) to get a good sense of what each Ajax framework does well. Hopefully there will be lots of demos I can link to.

On Friday night, a few AppFuse enthusiasts and I are getting together at the Thirsty Bear. If you'd like to join us, leave a comment and show up around 8:00.
