Updates for 28 FEB 2012

Corrected hour offset between actual date/time of database updates and the server time used by MySQL. WordPress updated times and KF database updates are now consistent, and the display of ‘last updated’ on each page is now accurate. This difference comes because WordPress accounts for the timezone of the user, while MySQL uses the timezone of the server. With my ISP in Atlanta, and me in Huntsville, there is an hour disparity between times entered by my code and the times entered by WordPress. This ‘bug’ is now corrected.

Updates for 27 FEB 2012

Added new administration screen for editing species data.

Added referencing on species page by using pseudo-tags.

Worked on adding auto-referencing tool to species data page. Multi-referencing is working, but inserting when only one reference is available is not (tomorrow’s problem to fix)[UPDATE: this is fixed now]. Once the referencing is corrected the update needs to be activated (also for tomorrow).
