    Default Suggestions for additions to the Blog Tracker

    I mentioned this to Dave some time last year, and it's been on the back burner for quite a while now, with (I suspect) the gas accidentally turned off.

    In the early days of this site there seem to have been quite a few blogs added to the Blog Tracker sub-forum, but I reckon a lot of them are no longer functioning, or have had their URLs changed or something, as nowadays there are only about half a dozen being picked up. Most of which are Shut up about Barclay Perkins, which seems to have new posts appearing several times a day.

    Anyway, in the topmost thread there is a request (#41)to send any future suggestions for inclusion in Blog Tracker to this Requests forum, so here I am.

    I think about beer

    The Snap and the Hiss

    The Wicking Man

    Wee Beefy's Pub Blog

    Lady sinks the booze

    Retired Martin

    Pubmeister Writes

    Life After Football

    Good Beer Hunting

    Appellation Beer

    Bring on the Beer

    Towards the Purrfect Pint

    A Good Beer Blog


    [The Beer and Pubs Forum - but see discussion below about a more appropriate way of linking to this.]


    I'll update this list as and when I come across any others that I think might be worth adding - until Dave admits he doesn't know how to add new blogs to the Blog Tracker!

    An overdue and agreeable post, however despite personally being a contributor, as well as yourself, The Beer and Pubs Forum , is a Forum and not a blog?

    I thought about that before including it, but I don't see any reason why we shouldn't have a link to it from this forum. I could be wrong...

    Yes but I just wondered how it would work, as every new blog post appears at the top of the list and then slips down the list as it gets superseded by a newer blog. If the forum link was just a link it would soon slip from view down the list, (unless made sticky). I don't think every new post appearing on the blog list would be right even though posts aren't as prolific as this forum. Just my thoughts and I could well be wrong.

    Anyway I would also add these blogs to Wills list.

    No, you're probably correct. I must admit I hadn't considered the technical aspects or how to present the results. I'd just been thinking that a link from our forum to others would possibly be of benefit to users in terms of opening communication. But better to limit the Blog Tracker to what it says on the tin.

    Perhaps linking to it from this page would be more appropriate? - https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/links.php

    Good idea! I'd completely forgotten about that page. Probably because it is not visible - I can get there by following your link, and in the left hand column (under "other bits") there is a link back to the same page (it's called Other Pub Sites), but if I click out of the page I'm then in a page where none of this is available. The obvious place for this would be at the top of the main page where there's an Other Bits section - another button could be added there. Or it could be added to the Stats & Features page - it's a feature, isn't it?
