Midnight:29 Website
Mike @ 10:41 pm

I finally got around to finishing the design and custom content management system for a local band’s website. The CMS is written in Python and is an extension of the work I hacked together for the West Wales LUG a while back. It offers very easy WYSIWYG editing of pages and integration of gallery and planet. It’s currently available from http://midnight.mikeasoft.com.

There’s still a small problem in Firefox 1.5 due to a change in the way the body’s background attribute is handled. This stops the cityscape appearing at the bottom of the page as it does in previous versions and in all other browsers. Setting the height of the html element to 100% fixes this for pages shorter than the height of the window but breaks any longer ones.

Sometime soon I’ll try and package it all up in an easy to install form and clean up the administration tasks a little, just on the off chance that someone else might find it useful.
