Hello,

I am performing a minor update on the Digress.it hosting site. This is regular maintenance work and should not cause any problems but if you experience any problems contact me as soon as possible.

I am also working on version 3.2, which is going to include some exciting new features, including support for "Pages" and a collection of new Themes. More information coming later this week!

I've been traveling the past 2 weeks so I didn't have time to check in the latest code until now.

You can see it at: http://code.google.com/p/digressit/source/list

I've made some fairly fundamental changes, including the ability to enable Digress.it on pages and because of that some stuff is currently broken, but I hope to stabilize the code in the coming days.

I was hoping to release version 3.2 in early June, but it's seems more likely to be next month. WordPress 3.2 is also due out soon, so I will try and coordinate the releases.

More exciting changes are now saved onto Google Code!  Some things are completely broken so I would not put this code somewhere public.... but if you are feeling adventurous and have a private WP installation, you can start getting a sense of what's coming.

For example: Enabling and disabling Digress.it on Pages and Posts is in supported. I also created a new "Post Type" called "Digress.it" if you want to separate you content even more.

There are also performance improvements. Pages should load MUCH faster (less calls to the database) and scrolling is much smoother. I also do some nice resizing of the commentbox to take as much of the screen as possible.

This upcoming version is going to have 10 themes! Four are starting to come together and the others will come soon after.  Design help would be appreciated if anyone knows a good designer. Here are the current design names:

digressit-book
digressit-cards
digressit-classroom
digressit-default
digressit-journal
digressit-library
digressit-original
digressit-paper
digressit-report
digressit-wireframe

I also want to have Digress.it support for various languages. Anyone able to help translate to Spanish, French, German and Portuguese?

Oooh, Eddie, is this one for me?


Commentbox optimization

This is a "duh, not-a-developer" question, but is there a place where I can see a sample of these live?

Hey Cynthia,

I will setup  a testing site at some point this week. I was hoping to be done by early July, but now I think it's more realistic for it to be in early August. I will launch the new version on the Hosting service before it's released widely to the public.. so you'll have another opportunity to test it there as well.
