Announcing a new section for the Reader: Build Registry

One of the ideas originally envisioned for the Reader when we built it was to include a dictionary of noteworthy builds in New Babbage – both present and past. It’s now available at (I’ll put it in a tab at the top of the page when we have some data in there.)

You can create a record of your build by choosing Create Content, then Build Record. It is heartily encouraged that you attach images to your record so people can view it in all its glory.

[It’s untested, of course. Play with it and let me know what you think, of if something doesn’t work. I’m trying to figure out how to let people comment on build records, which I will add when I do.]

    I’ve cleaned up the Build Registry and added a tab to the top of the BAR. Now it’s easy to preserve the details about a build – especially those that are no longer with us.

    I’ve uploaded a test build to see how it works.

    The “Built by” section is not showing the builder.

    Not sure what to suggest about thumbnail images for photos hosted offsite.
