    Re: The News page

    Major Part of the rework has been completed. There is some work to be done but nothing that will impact normal functionality:

    http://www.defencetalk.com/news/publish/index.php

    Changed the file extention from .shtml to .php to accomodate database changes coming in fall. We will be switching to mySQL based database, which is very fast and efficient.
    If you can't find certain artcle with .shtml extention, change it to .php and it should go where it needs to.

    Any questions, suggestions? Please feel free to share.

    Enjoy!

    Re: The News page

    Defence Roundup section added to the news area.

    http://www.defencetalk.com/news/publish/moredefencenews.php

    This contains news related to military/defence/strategic issues which we may not be able to publish due to copyright issues.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas/suggestion to improve DT!

    Enjoy!

    Re: The News page

    Related news feature added to the Land Forces, Military Aviation, Naval Forces and Missile sections on the News Page.

    The news there are linked from external website all over the internet and are updated very often automatically... (20, 30, 40 minutes, etc).

    See image for a visual

    The News section has been updated with latest software. Each topic (air force, navy, army, etc. etc.) has its own section, it is database driven now rather than flatfile/pearl backend...supposed to be faster.

    http://www.defencetalk.com/news/publish/

    The articles published 10.24.2006 and BEFORE are not longer available through their old URL... please search for the article using the search feature until we are use to the new format. ;)

    Article tools and bookmarking/article tagging links added to the article pages alogn with some other enhancements.

    Comments?

    Thanks and enjoy!

    The last post is something from over 5 years ago, what's the point?

    If you wish to discuss or comment about a news article, then where's the problem in linking the article in an appropriate thread and then chatting about it? I do it all the time, personally it seems best to discuss news articles in a place designed to facilitate discussion, like the forum.

    Please check the date of the last post in a thread before making a comment, there comes a point where is it even worth commenting on something 5+ years old? Please finish this habit mate, it's a bit tedious
