Official Alex Toth website : News : You can participate in the new


After many hours of web development I present to you the new Tothfans version 2.0. This new Tothfans website code allows everyone to participate and contribute content of all sorts in a new and simpler way.

New features:
- Create galleries with images (called "image sets")
- Upload images to other people's image sets
- Post your own articles, news stories, etc. (called "posts")
- Comment on specific images, posts, image sets.
- New front page integrated forums (called "discussions")
- Avatars for your user account.

Think about it as a group contributed newsletter devoted to Alex Toth. Kinda like Wikipedia where you are the contributor. Imagine articles written by fellow tothfans discussing Toth's history, influences, etc. Everyone can contribute themselves rather than going through the hassle of sending me stuff.

Now there is one small catch to this Alex Toth website utopia - to make sure the website is not perverted and turned into a spam free-for-all, all articles go into a queue for approval before contributions appear on the site. So please be patient and allow me some time to review and approve content. My only goal is to keep the site free from spam, inappropriate content, defamation and flame wars.

If I may ask, please be brutally honest and prove some feedback to me on the website. There is still a bunch of  rough edges that need smoothing. So, If anything is confusing, broken, or just plain sucks LET ME KNOW (please).

Tothfans has always been the great website it is thanks to all the fantastic and generous participation from far and wide. So let's keep it up and content make our website the best ever.

I've just added a post with an image set included to test the waters, Jeff. The new features hold a lot of potential! A problem that I've encountered is when trying to access the 'MY PAGE' feature. I'm getting an error message (see below) more often that not... Notice: Undefined variable: rs_traderid in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\\profilepublic.php on line 46 Any chance of adding an RSS Feed? Best, Darrell

Hi Jeff, I've tried to create an instance where the error occurs again, but have been unable to. Best, Darrell

Yessir... I put together a post which included an image set. Should I try again? Best, Darrell

Seems that you were responding at the same time I was posting and uploading, Jeff. Hope everything works out this time! Darrell

Hey Jeff!! Great work all around!!! I need some days to test it out as a user. First thought, i posted in a wrong post, so i think that i need to practice a bit to navigate trhu the different post and pages. It a bit disapointing but sounds great with some cool features about uploading images! more later. Nic.
