Highlight centric quotes
Tuesday 28th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

A new feature has been added to the Quotes and Search page today; you can now choose to highlight quotes from centric episodes. For example, if there is a quote from Jack in one of his centric episodes, it will be highlighted.

Single quote view complete
Sunday 19th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

The single quote view is now complete. To view these pages, click the 'More' link from the quotes page or search results. Here, you will see the quote, the character, episode details, the number of times the quote has been loaded, and a link to post the quote to Twitter. If applicable, there will be a 'more quotes from this character' link that will give you a list of other quotes by the character of the main quote you are viewing, which you can click; if there are no other quotes by the character of the main quote you are viewing, this link will not be shown. Also, the name of the character is click-able; when you click it you will get the character's full name, a picture of them, their state, and their centric episodes; if the main quote you are viewing is from a centric episode of the character, the episode name will be bold in the list of centric episodes.

Advanced search page added
Sunday 19th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

The new advanced quote search feature has now been made available.

Advanced Quote Search

This differs from the search options on the normal quotes page as it gives you more control; you can choose multiple characters and episodes, whether a quote contains or starts with a certain string, and other options to help you find the quotes you want.

It's tagged as 'beta' currently as there are some issues that should be resolved soon.

For the Twitter column, if quotes are being shown regardless of whether they can be posted to Twitter or not (i.e. all quotes), clicking the Twitter column header will show only quotes that can be posted to Twitter; if only quotes that can be posted to Twitter are being shown, clicking the column header will show all quotes.

Lost Season 6 gains an extra hour
Sunday 5th July 2009 --- Category: LOST News LOST News

The final season of Lost has just gotten a bit longer: ABC announced they are adding an extra hour to the popular drama's sixth and final season.

Previously, fans were informed season six would last a paltry 17 hours; now, however, Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello reports via Twitter that the upcoming season will be a staggering 18 hours "including a two-hour premier and a two-hour finale."

Lost should return to TV early in 2010.

Saturday 4th July 2009 --- Category: Random Quote Generator Image Random Quote Generator Image

Four new images have been added to use with the random quote generator. They are smaller images, and only show quotes short enough to be posted to Twitter. These images are better suited to sidebars of websites where the other, standard images are too wide.

A short guide to lost-quotes.com
Saturday 4th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

Index
This is the homepage for the site, where you can see the random quote generator signature image, the code to add it to your site or forum signature, as well as counts of the number of quotes loaded and the number of quotes in the database. There is also a quote from the initial LOST advert shown in the UK.

Quotes
This is where you can see every single quote available in the database, that are shown on the random quote generator image. You can see the character, episode number, episode name, the quote itself, the number of times it has been loaded and, if the quote is short enough, a link to post the quote directly to Twitter.

There is also a basic search feature for the quotes page. You can choose to filter quotes by character or season, order them by character, episode number episode name, quote, or times loaded, in ascending or descending order. You can also choose to search for a particular word or phrase to narrow your search.

Submit
The submit page allows you to submit a quote to the database. Only the quote is required, however the character, episode number and episode name is useful to add if applicable. Quotes are then added to the moderation queue. Below the submission form there is a list of the last 10 approved or rejected submissions made; pending submissions are not shown. If your quote is approved, it will be added to the quotes list to be used in the random quote generator signature image.
