News Aggregator

BTW, I put some feeds into the news aggreggator just to try it out. I'll make some categories so we can better organize them.

That's fine, though it looks

That's fine, though it looks like some of the formatting "&" is a bit wonky. I think we should do only very specific news aggregation as a lot of what I blog about or post news about on the current Website is culled from some of these Websites that we might aggregate. I do like a "best of" already. It would take some of the thunder away. Nevertheless, we set it up and determine what we need to exclude (what sites), if any.

News Ag

We could always make the news agg. limited to admins only. That way, we could filter out the AA-relevant stuff and put it in our blogs.

I like that idea. Let's do

I like that idea. Let's do that.

Also, I've been trying to figure out how to move the menus back to the left side. It seems unnatural having it on the right. Any thoughts?

Menus

You like them on the left side? I'm losing it. I could've sworn you said you wanted them on the right side, so I moved them. It doesn't matter to me, really, though I can think of at least one reason to have them on the right--that way the reader's will notice the articles and blogs first. I guess the key question is what's more important for the average visitor--the menu or the content?

If you want to play around with it, Bill, click ADMIN on the menu, then BLOCKS.

Nah, that was Mat who liked

Nah, that was Mat who liked them on the right side. It just throws me off because it seems like every site has them on the left side, so I'm obviously used to it the other way. It seems like the weight is off. However, you are correct in that it may force people to focus more on the latest content than the menus. The only catch is that if a window is minimized, the first thing to go is the menus. In any case, it's not a sticking point with me and it's butt-simple to move it if we so chose in the future. Thanks, Matt.

There's quite a few Dutch, German, English, Italian, Spanish and French sites that I rely of for news and I scan them regularly.
