OK, so after a stike of clarity regarding the nasty Java code resulting from the port from PHP i jotted down a nice new system for generating the page view/edit/etc struture.

The coding for this now finished the small number of extra classes (~10 lines each) has meant I can strip out over 200 lines of code just by using java properly.

Also made it easier to add new features, so 5 minutes later and I no longer have to edit the data files to fix username/date issues in new blog entries 🙂
