We are still having extreme trouble with the new WYSIWYG editor. Until we work out all the bugs, we will not be making it available on the live version of Mizozo. We are trying to tweak it in a way that makes things more comfortable for the Publishers, but in so doing we opened up Pandora's Box and are having trouble putting it back together again.
So, to keep the site moving, we made countless minor enhancements throughout the site. We have made our RSS feed public, and have modified the text throughout the site. We have revisited our Images and modified Alt/Title tags in key places as well. Other enhancements were also done like Tag Cloud CSS, Home Page Refresh, and the way we display Time Published on our Teasers.
One minor change to the site that may go unnoticed is the new distinction between Story and Mizozo. We have changed the "Post Response" button to "Start Mizozo" or "Continue Mizozo", depending on whether or not a response has been published or not. The definition of a Mizozo is an argument or discussion, so until a response is posted we are looking at an Article. However, once a response is posted, a Mizozo is born. This distinction will become more and more evident as time goes on.

This week there is very little to report. We have finalized our optimization for the time being, but we are still having extreme difficulties on our new server. While visitors will not notice, the time for each page load is extremely high and Tech Support isn't being too friendly. If we can not figure out the problem, we may have to switch servers again soon.
Otherwise, the WYSIWYG editor is almost complete, and we are hoping to squeeze in a few other additions this week. Once we finish, the next round will be a lot of updates that you guys requested. Most are very little, and hardly noticeable like ALT tags, but others are substantially larger, like a new Login module. We will keep you posted.

We are happy to announce that Mizozo's New Server is Finally working. This actually took a great deal more time than we originally expected because of strange glitches in the site the entire week. Because of the server move, very little was done otherwise.
We seem to have finished Optimization for the time being. For our regulars, you may have noticed a substantial speed increase. Of course, much has to do with the new server, but the Optimization also plays a key role. For Beta to attract more users, speed is obviously a major factor.
Now that everything is back to normal, we will begin working on the next phase of enhancements. Our WYSIWYG editor is almost ready, but still needs some tweaking. Once that is in place, we will have a large number of fast modifications to the site, so check back soon.
