TastyLog makes use of the homemade IOFilter script suite to accomplish the following:
- HTML stripping (posts)
- HTML inclusion (FAQ entries)
- Link parsing (posts)
- Email parsing (posts)
- CRLF parsing
- Extraneous space stripping
- DB protection
- Browser protection
Main sections of the site may be accessed from the menu buttons to the left of the main content area. If the items in the content area span more than one page, you can move forward and backwards through them with the "Next" and "Previous" buttons at the top and bottom. If the items for the section you are in are few enough to fit all on one page, the "Next" and "Previous" buttons will be hidden. At any time, you may click the logo image to return to the front page.

The title bar of each item in the main content area contains a "L" link, which stands for "Link". This link is used to isolate a specific item on a page by itself. This is handy for getting the URL of an individual item for use elsewhere or for bookmarking. The "L" link is followed by an "E" link and a "D" link. The "E" stands for "Edit", which will take you to that item's edit screen where you can make any desired changes. The "D" link stands for "Delete", which will remove the entry from being displayed. Clicking the "D" button will pop up a prompt window confirming that you actually want to continue with the deletion. Be sure if you want to delete an item or not, because only an Admin can recover it once it is gone. There's also a bar across the bottom of each post showing how many comments that post has and when the post was last edited (when applicable).
The Comments Pages:
Each post on the front page can be commented on. All registered users are allowed to leave comments to posts. To access the comments, just click the "X Comments" link in the bottom bar of the applicable post. On the resulting page, you will see the post at the top, followed by the comments, if any, ordered with the newest at the top. With the buttons at the very top of the page, you can toggle the visibility of the post and the comments, or jump directly to the comment form, where you can fill in your user information and leave a remark. The same posting rules apply for comments as for regular posts except that comments cannot be edited. Deleted comments show up as a different color, and contain only the text, "*NUKED*".

The About page is where you can learn info about TastyLog, from viewing suggestions to operating instructions.

For front page posts and comments, the IOFilter suite is set to strip all HTML and parse links if they are found. This means that any HTML you embed will be rendered as text by the browser. To turn text into a link, it must meet the proper criteria to be parsed as such. Email addresses must follow the email@example.com syntax. For hyperlinks, the links must follow the syntax. Any valid URL (including other protocols and querystrings) should be parsed. If it isn't, contact me (Pup), and I'll try to find out why it didn't work. The same goes for any valid email address. However, the limitation of this method of parsing requires that a link be separated from the rest of your text by spaces, parentheses, or carriage returns. if you post a URL at the end of a sentence that ends with a period, the period will be included in the link. Same goes with any other character, other than the parentheses. Carriage returns within a post will be translated to break tags accordingly. Editing posts will result in an annotation of the date edited appearing at the bottom of the post.
FAQ entries have HTML enabled, thus the link parsing functionality is missing. Any links within a FAQ entry must be made by hand using anchor tags. Carriage returns are parsed as break tags.
Email addresses are automatically linked, as are URLs. The Bio parses links and addresses just as a regular post.
The Admin Page:
The Admin page is where you can set your login cookie and access the site's other features, depending on your access rights. See the breakdown above on what you'll be able to do on this page.
In the undelete/unban screens, the "L" link in the title bar is replaced with an "R" link, which stands for "Restore". Clicking this will restore the item/person.
TastyLog is compliant with the both W3C XHTML 1.1 Strict standards and CSS 2 standards.
