Poll Bludger Version 2.0

Welcome to the new-look, WordPress-powered Poll Bludger, which comes complete with comments and automatic archiving and sundry other delights that I wrongly thought I woudn’t need when I got the ball rolling. I have ironed out the site’s kinks to the extent that it looks okay on Internet Explorer 6.0, but past experience suggests there might still be problems with other browsers. Any issues that could be brought to my attention would be much appreciated. Comments are open on this post and the one previous, so please drop in and say hi.

  1. William,

    Much nicer – the ability to post comments is something to be praised, although John Quiggin sometimes finds it a headache. Hopefully we can keep it civilised here, too.
    Two suggestions – now you have comments and listing showing the most recent comments with a link to the relevant comment is something that tends to stimulate debate and keeps the blog ticking over even in the absence of fresh articles from you. You may want to consider adding one. Both Quiggin and Catallaxy use the facility in WordPress, so it should be easy to add in.
    The other useful thing, this time on Quiggin alone, is a comment preview facility. Not sure how he added it, but it does allow for an improved ability to get our comments right.
