If you're keeping up to date with the loads of tweaks to Empty Chairs in the last few days there is even more!

If you publish news to the site you can now add it to a category - we have 'Contest', Events', 'Band News' and 'General'. We're open to suggestions for other categories and will be integrating the category feature into the news feed.

In other, more technical news...

The site now has two RSS Feeds you can subscribe to:

If you use RSS Readers, Flipbook, Feedly etc you can now add the feed to those services.

We have also added Open Graph tags to the header - what this means for you is when you share the site on Facebook it will look nicer basically with a nicer description for the link.

And finally for now the tweets that are auto generated when a news article is published look better!

If you have any ideas, or find any bugs drop us a line.
