VegGuide.org Site News
Oct 16 07 - 4,000 Entries
We also surpassed 4,000 reviews a while back (we're actually above 4,100 now). Thanks to everyone who's contributed so far, we wouldn't be here without you.
Jul 24 07 - Is this good news?
No news, that is. Sorry for the lack of news. I've been working on VegGuide 3.0 for a long time now, and it's starting to coalesce into something pretty cool. In non-vaporware news, we're on track to hit 4,000 entries and 4,000 reviews by the end of the year. Thanks to everyone who's contributed so far.
Dec 18 06 - 3,000 Entries
With Oh Sweet Mama Vegan Bakery VegGuide.Org has hit 3,000 entries, and we're almost at 3,000 reviews as well. This is quite amazing since we hit 2,000 entries at the beginning of 2006. Thanks to everyone who's contributed!
Jan 23 06 - 2,000 Entries
With Blossom VegGuide.Org has hit 2,000 entries, and over 2,000 reviews. The site has sure come a long way since launch several years ago. Thanks to all of our contributors.
May 29 05 - Spell Checking
I love you, users, but you cannot spell. So now submissions will be spell checked and you'll be given a chance to make corrections before the final submission.
My personal favorite misspelling so far, seen from more than one user, was "vegitarian" instead of "vegetarian"!
May 14 05 - Donate Via PayPal
If you look at the footer of the page you'll see a little form you can use to donate to the VegGuide. Donations are tax-deductible (in the US).
Apr 24 05 - Search by Address, not Just Zip!
You can now search for entries in the US by proximity to a given address or intersection, in addition to search for entries near a given zip code.
Just use the "Search" link at the top of the page to check it out.
Apr 16 05 - New Look, CSS layout, and More
As you can probably see, VegGuide.Org is sporting an entirely new look. There are also some new features.
First, the site's layout is now done entirely through CSS. The upside is that this makes it possible to customize the layout for different skins. The downside is that this layout only works in IE6, Mozilla (Firefox), Opera 7, and Safari. If you're using an older version of IE, we recommend that you upgrade to Firefox, or at least upgrade to IE6.
Registered users can now create a personal skin. This lets you play around with redesigning the Guide however you want. Feel free to publish your skin's URL.
There are also many smaller changes, like some graphs on the stats page.
If you experience any layout bugs, please let us know.
Feb 8 05 - Google Maps!
Map links for entries in the US now go to Google Maps, which has a much nicer UI than MapQuest. Canada still uses MapQuest, as Google's coverage for Canada is currently incomplete.
Nov 27 04 - Events
The guide now supports events. An event can be added to either a location or a specific entry. Use this to list things like sales, dine-outs, veg festivals, etc.
Later, we will be adding support for private events, invitations, and RSVP lists.
