008. converting to listing admin + revamps!  
I am pretty much exhausted. Why, you may ask? Well, I have some major updates.

First of all, I've recently decided something - from now on I'll be using a different script for all my fanlistings. That's right, I'm done with Enthusiast. It has been a good script for the past year and it hasn't given me any problems, but I need a change. I've recently noticed that when I use Enthusiast, most of the time I get a headache. I don't know why, I just do. So yeah, this is one of the main reasons why I'm going to use Listing Admin from now on. I've been stalking this script for a while now and finally I made up my mind and decided to use it.

Of course, it isn't as easy as it sounds. I'm not talking about the script (I love it!), rather, about converting all the fanlistings over to Listing Admin. So much work! I also revamped a couple of them before converting them. I've been making layouts like crazy for the past week, like, one layout a day! I'm scared of myself. XD

So yeah, without further ado, here I present you the converted/revamped fanlistings!

Rhapsody, the Grandia OST fanlisting, which also has a new layout! Pretty simple, but I couldn't come up with anything and I decided to just use tables. I like it, though. :) This was the first fanlisting that was converted over to Listing Admin.

My Baby, the Sofa (xxxHOLiC: Shunmuki Opening Theme) fanlisting was the second to be converted. The layout is still the old one, but I'm planning on revamping it when I have enough inspiration (and possibly not many fanlistings to convert)!

Heal the Hurt, the Fujimoto & Kobato fanlisting was not only converted, but revamped as well! Gosh, this fanlisting needed a revamp so bad. That pop-up layout had been bothering me for a while, so I'm glad I could finally change it! Now it looks definitely much better. Also, while I was making the layout, I re-discovered my love for this pairing (lol, actually, I got distracted by the manga and read it again), so I made a 'couple' section, hoping I will be able to fill it with info soon! :D Ahh, I'm so happy I could finally revamp this fanlisting. My dear OTP from Kobato. ♥

That's it for now. Overall, I still like the layouts of my other fanlistings (not to mention I think I may have a layout block now, meh), so I'm keeping them. Also, for the people who asked to affiliate with my newest fanlistings, is it a problem if I add you once I've converted all my listings? It won't take too long. I'm converting two fanlistings a day (make that three if I work really hard) and, according to my calculations, I should be finished converting them all by the end of next week (at the very latest, but I should be finished before that), so... have a little patience, please? Thanks! :)

Thank you, Beth! ♥

*hugs back* Thank you, I really put a lot of effort into that layout! <33 Yeah you should definitely read the manga and when you do, we can fangirl together about it! <3

I like the shades of colours that you use, aww, you're really tempting me to like... Revamp one of my fanlistings. Well, let's see if I have the time though! >w<;

That day, I saw the Kobato DVD on sales but my dad wouldn't buy it for me 'cause the exams were just around the corner. ;3;

Heh~ ♥

Dovrei farlo anch'io ma ho troppi bimbi e sono troppo assuefatta ad enth!x.x Com'è list admin cmq? Semplice da installare e per convertire i membri?°°

Ti capisco, io ho 16 fanlistings e ora che le sto convertendo mi sembrano infinite! XD;

Cmq Listing Admin è fantastico! Per certi versi è anche più semplice da usare di Enth (per esempio, per gli affiliati, se hai lo stesso affiliato per più fanlistings, non serve che lo inserisci ogni volta, basta che selezioni le fls e il gioco è fatto! Il che risparmia un sacco di spazio e tempo, soprattutto per le fl delle CLAMP!) e non mi fa venire il mal di testa, quindi è già un bene! XD E' semplicissimo da installare e idem per convertire, c'è proprio una parte dello script che ti permette di convertire i membri, gli affiliati, i codes (da codesort), etc, basta solo inserire i dati e lo script converte tutto, senza dover accedere al database! Certo, ci sono alcuni bugs qua e là, ma non sono nulla di terribile o compromettente per le fanlistings e poi lo script viene aggiornato e i bugs vengono trovati e corretti, quindi questo mi conforta. :D Ora voglio provare a farlo usare anche ad una mia amica hostata sul mio dominio a cui ho installato Enthusiast, penso che anche lei si troverà bene! XD

Magari appena ho tempo e finisco upcoming ed un pò di movimenti! :) Ma per quanto riguarda la crosslist? Per esempio io ora avrò due collective, una per TFL e duna per TAFL ed alcune fanlisting sono nella list di entrambi i network e quindi sistemando il table in enth posso gestirle da entrambe. Con listing admin si può fare?°°

Io personalmente non l'ho mai usata perché fino ad ora non ne ho avuto bisogno, ma l'opzione crosslist c'è e funziona anche se la fl ha uno script diverso! ^^

Sasugoi Tess-san! Ha fatto un lavoro con gli attributi per questo script! Devo devicermi ad usarlo!
