At last I've found time to re-place the straybit.net portal's very first "developer" skin with a new one. As you can see it's nothing too fancy but more stylish. I hope.
Also I'll revise the old templates and make some adjustments during this week. Probably add some information about websites built with the StrayBit engine. Because of this the portal may be unavailable for short periods of time.
Just select parameters you would like to use, copy the resulting HTML code, paste it into your webpage and you will have the latest news of Star Wars: The Old Republic displayed to your webpage's visitors as soon as the news is published.
The “Dark Council vs. Galactic Senate” portal dedicated to Star Wars: The Old Republic game goes on-line. The portal is the latest project built with the StrayBit engine and uses all its features. The aim was to create a place for developing, testing and distribution of various services & tools which would be helpful for all players and would enrich their gaming experience.
There are some services which could already be provided to guilds and information about them will be posted at the portal's forums.
It turned out that making the language switching to be domain dependable isn't quite convenient. From now on the engine portal will show news in a user's selected language regardless of which domain has been chosen - straybit.net or straybit.ru. (The domains will still display news in their default language if a user has no preferred language.)
More presentation options were added to the system. Along with the skins changing, a page can be modified by adding different 'frames' - such as 'last news', 'most discussed' & 'advertisement'. There's a plan to add a few more in order to utilize empty space at the news pages.
Also a new option is available for the news presentation. An example of it can be seen at blesseddarkness.org. Along with its own news the site displays the engine portal's news. So, there's no need to do posting at news pages of the portal's projects when new features become available - as soon as a system news is posted it appears at all pages.
The StrayBit engine is a framework for building various types of on-line projects
from single websites to portals with multiple subsidiary websites under a centralized administration.
This portal is the showcase of the engine's existing performance capabilities and testing grounds
for developing and trying out new features.
Below are some of the projects built with the engine. Each of them is accessible as a standalone
website and all of them are integrated within the StrayBit
network. An account registered at the network can be used to log in at all the other projects (and
