New Site Pages (and a secret project)

with 5 comments

I’ve created a new type of page on HalfEagle, site pages!

In the main HalfEagle feed, there’s a small link at the end of each summary that says “From Site Name x hours ago” which now connects to that site’s page on HalfEagle. For example, here’s what Scoutmaster Jerry’s page looks.

As you’ll see, the most recent five posts are shown, along with some information about the site itself such as how frequently they post and how popular the site is on HalfEagle.

In some cases, recent tweets mentioning the site name will also be shown. Finally, there is also a new link labelled “Subscribe to feed” which is how you can subscribe directly to your favorite blogs and podcasts!

You may also notice a “Is this your site?” section in the sidebar. If you have your blog included on HalfEagle already, I’d love to link up your HalfEagle site page to your blog/podcast’s Facebook, Twitter, and whatever else you have! If you want your page to get the special treatment, just leave a comment below!

P.S. I also have a ::cough:: secret project ::cough:: that I am working on and I’d like about a half dozen HalfEagle bloggers to help with it. If you’d like to know more, please send an email to secret@halfeagle.com ;)

UPDATE! I’ve updated Scoutmaster Clarke Green’s site page. If you are a HalfEagle site owner, check it out and let me know if you want your page to get similar updates!

  2. Hi Clarke,

    I’ve added some features to your site page based on what I found on your site. Check it out!


    If there’s anything you’d like to see (or want changed) just let me know!

  3. Gregg,

    finding contact info for you is hard on the site…

    Like the Ask portion of the Half Eagle but I do not want to log in using Facebook…is there any other option? I do not see one?

    The contact link pushes me to the blog….no email or contact form…

  4. Hi Bryan,

    Facebook is the only option right now. As the site grows, I plan on adding other authentication choices but right now, Facebook login goes a long way toward maintaining authenticity with accounts.

    As far as contact info goes, you can reach me through Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or LinkedIn. But, I try not to publish my email address for the spambots to find. :)

  5. I don’t face and I don’t tweet and I don’t link and I don’t plus so no access to your site.
