File memory size error fixed in database

Thanks to j_s_cavalcante , we discovered that the memory file size in the database was not equipped to handle a 95,000 word story. It's fixed now so you can upload your longer stories in one piece.

Also the redirect has been installed to push people to the <a href="http://www.dueslash.com/new/"new archive page</a>. The old archive is still linked from the new archive's main page.

Due Slash also has a presence on Dreamwidth, for those of you who are keeping track. Cross-posting will continue for now.

Reality testing

seperis  and j_s_cavalcante  have "reality-tested" the archive for us over the past few days. To thank them, we turned on the "Featured" option and added their stories to it. You can find "Featured Stories" under the "Browse" menu or in the news item on the front page. We also turned on the "Challenges" module for people who want to upload their dS Match Stories and have them listed under that challenge.

For those who run challenges, it looks like you can issue a challenge yourself. To respond to a challenge, you upload your story, then go to the challenges section, choose the challenge, and click "Respond to this challenge!"

It looks like most of the bugs are ironed out, so... give it a try yourself! Register an account... upload some stories! Or, if you're not a writer, browse the site. Test the search function. Let us know if anything is wonky, if you see any spelling errors, if you have suggestions.

Please note that your "Pen Name" is your USER ID and can be the same as your "Real Name," so if you want to enter "murgatroyd" and "Murgatroyd" or even "Murgatroyd" and "Murgatroyd," feel free to do so.

The TinyMCE interface does not like <p> tags, as j_s_cavalcante  noted, so replacing the <p> tags in your HTML file with <br /> <br /> before uploading the file might help. There's also an option to cut and paste from Word. This hasn't worked well with Apple versions of Word but might work just fine with Windows versions.

Archive update - duplicates fixed

Possibly completely fixed, even.

The duplicates are gone from the Top Tens page.

Two more AmyB stories were added and then a series. Then I logged in as aukestrel and added 2 stories and a series under my own options. All seem to be showing. So the 3.4.3 update is mostly successful at the moment.

(no subject)

I plan to try to reupload the 3.4.3 update this weekend and see if that fixes the issues with the doubled lists/links. There's also an issue where all new stories are expecting to be validated, which is *so* not the case for the actual settings, so I think there's a duplicate default file somewhere. Will keep you posted. :)
