You’ve probably noticed by now some updates to Linky Land.

First of all, I’ve moved the FAQ/news to this blog where it’s easier to communicate with the Linky community. I’d recommend subscribing, so you always know what’s going on.

The new Image Linkies are available and can be used anywhere HTML can be used. Some systems, like wordpress.com (the free one, not the one you download and use on your own domain) and LiveJournal don’t let you use the JavaScript that Mister Linky used to require. Image Linkies can be used on these systems… or anywhere!

I’ve been updating the list of memes all along, so this is nothing new.

And a few bugs have been fixed, some code cleaned up.

As always, be sure to use the Help Desk to report any issues. It is so much easier for me to help you this way. But it’s important that you include your Mister Linky user id in your message as well as the URL where you’re having trouble. I should figure out how to get the help desk system to ask you for this information, don’t I?

Oh yeah, one more thing. I’ve got this new control panel that allows you to see a list of users who have left a comment or a link. You can also see a list of referrers to your site. You can also see what search strings have landed people on your doorstep. Then as soon as you click on the link, it goes away, so you only see a list of who you need to visit. I have been playing around with this and I really love it. If you’re a Platinum user, or if you’d like to upgrade and use this, let me know and I’ll show you how to try it. I don’t want to advertise it more broadly until I’ve gotten some feedback from folks like yourself.
