xbtit is the newest site addition

I’ve been curious for a while about the option of offering projects and other various downloads here at kyleabaker.com via BitTorrent.

If you want to take a look at the torrent section, just continue on over to kyleabaker.com/torrents and browse through!

I’m still in the process of posting my content to it, but its there if you need it!

Installing xbtit was straight forward and simple. It took a little searching to find the settings that I needed to make it open to the public. Otherwise everyone would have needed a user name and password to access it…annoying.

I think the layout is poorly mapped out and cluttered in the Administrative Panel, but xbtit doesn’t seem to be getting as much attention as WordPress either.

While configuring the default style so that the torrent section integrates with the rest of my k2 theme, I realized how poorly parts of the BitTorrent user interface were coded and html was hard coded into the some none theme files.

If you plan to make sure that your site passes W3C validation, then be prepared for a lot of time wasted on debugging.
