Admin Login


Close enough!

Okay, so the admin and the gallery work. Sort of. Close enough to start uploading content, give or take a few bugs. Please excuse me while the dust settles.

As my initial test round, I've uploaded 26 more images, for a total of 30 here now, and that's helped iron out some issues, and forced me to fix a lot of bugs today. We're nowhere near the like thousand or so that I've drawn over the years (including stuff that never got posted anywhere), but it's a good start.

More to come, but enjoy there finally being more content here!

Almost almost almost

The admin system is very nearly there. Almost. So very close. That's why the featured images each have a lot more tags: I can use the admin to maintain tags properly now, along with descriptions and titles and even most of the image-upload system.

It's so very close, but it's not quite there. Another three or four hours of coding, and I should have the backend usable, and then we get to the fun part: Putting all of the content back online, along with some things that never got uploaded before.

So we're almost to the good part, but not quite. Close, though.

More admin progress

I built the authentication code for the admin site, which is a good first step. There's nothing behind it yet, but now logins and logouts actually work.

The last PHP has been removed from the site, which means I can now investigate faster ways of serving the Python than using CGI. CGI certainly works, but it takes way longer than necessary.

Next up: Some minor refactors to the auth system, and then put enough of the uploader/editor UI in place that I can start reuploading all the content that belongs here.
