Site News

I'll be travelling this week so a quiet one for me. However, I'll leave you with a few CodeProject tips that can make life a little more interesting:

Are you a blogger?

We have a feature on The Code Project that allows you to share your technical blogs with other developers from the comfort of your very own blog. If you write technical blog posts and want to get those posts out to a wider audience, with an added bonus of getting more visitors to your own blog, then use our Blog feed aggregator.

Save Your Search

A quick reminder that our search page has the ability to save your favourite searches. After you've searched for your content (and narrowed down the scope, and sorted, and filtered) just type a query name in the "Saved queries" box in the left hand column of the page and it's there for evermore.

Our Tip Wiki

If you're a Silver level member or above feel free to update the Tips and Tricks for CodeProject.com article. There's a lot of nooks and crannies new users would love to find.

cheers,
Chris Maunder
