Beginning with January of 2004 Ender's Review was available on the web at this site.
The site was “officially launched” on Feb. 9, 2004 with the Site Launch essay.
Original columns have appeared as they were submitted. Sunni Maravillosa's No Safe Seat at the Feast was the first, other than the launch article ementioned above.
This Weekend was made available first for the week spanning Apr 15 - 21, 2004. At that time I was publishing it on Tuesday so as to have it available to be included in the following Wednesday's Freedom News Daily (FND).
The Endervidualism home page was changed substantially to no longer have a large picture, but instead list the most recent updates to the site. As regular site features were updated (e.g. a new Endervidualism column, a new 'Ender's Review', a new 'This Weekend,' etc.) the most recently added/changed feature page was added to the top of the canvas area on the home page.
Although I had started playing with named anchors in 2004, the essential formatting of Ender's Review had not changed substantially. However, beginning with the issue published on Jan. 3 (which is archived in the 2004 issues – covering Dec. 26, 2004 - Jan. 1, 2005) Ender's Review started exploiting some very rudimentary CSS. It took a while for me to get a good grasp of CSS, but I was determined. The site would be redone to exploit cascading style sheets and other web standards, with the hope that the resulting site would be both easier to manage and more attractive.
Almost certainly by the end of March and perhaps as early as February, I had started playing with CSS to make "better buttons." This began the effort to "clean up" the Columns area, which is still happening at this writing in Nov. 2005.
Ender's Review features both an annual and "left out" special edition for 2003. They were both late being published. The "Left Out 2003" Issue used changes which gave a "full" CSS implementation. When possible I will introduce new features for Ender's Review with the special editions.
This issue was the first weekly web edition to use a "full featured" CSS format for ERev. Over that same weekend I also put up a new "refurbished" Review section featuring past issue archives (complete for 2004 and 2005, 2003 issues will be loaded as time permits) and links to the Review's regular source sites.
In the Agora and Connections sections most pages have fairly simple structures. This isn't true of Sunni's Salon, This Weekend and the Movie Reviews, but is of most of the rest. They were converted between the beginning of August and mid-September.
This Weekend (TWE) has true tabular data, not merely a layout table. Unlike the situation with the Classics page, it wasn't reasonable to attempt formating TWE without tables. Moving TWE to CSS was a bit more involved than most of the other Connections pages, but was worth the effort.
1) Change Log implemented. Changes to pre-existing pages (such as those noted in the new home page's notebox area), and new pages which aren't of likely general interest (e.g. the change log itself), will be noted in this log in an effort to keep a record for several purposes.
2) After problems with the last update requiring a reset of MSFT server extensions and the consequent large site update to rebuild those extensions (many due to unconverted movie reviews at this point), and since many pages no longer use Front Page features, some extra overhaul done (work continued into 7/16/2006 with steps for Front Page elimination at Endervidualism).
