Good Reads Migration Finished!

That was not pain­less at all. The import fea­ture is tetchy, at best. I had to go through the entire list of 1300+ books and fix their “book­shelf” assign­ments, and add some that just didn’t import at all. I had over 1400 books in Now Read­ing, and I haven’t quite fig­ured out why there are […]

Grrr

The lat­est ver­sion of Word­Press is out, so I upgrad­ed this blog right away, as I usu­al­ly do. Of course, the plu­g­in I use most, Now Read­ing, choked and won’t work any more.

Le sigh.

The prob­lems with the pre­vi­ous “new” WP ver­sion were nev­er tru­ly resolved, and now the author’s forum isn’t work­ing, […]

Amazon Weirdness

I’m tired. I spent entire­ly too much time over the last 48 hours futz­ing with the library part of this site.

Gravatars and Plugins and WordPress, Oh My!

Since Word­Press 2.5 has Gra­vatar sup­port, I’m attempt­ing to add Gra­vatars to my blog tem­plate. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I just keep get­ting errors, or a the default “no Gra­vatars” image (even for com­ment authors who I know have Gra­vatars, like me). I’m cer­tain that the author of this tem­plate isn’t going to update it to include sup­port, […]

WordPress Upgrade Woes

Ack! I upgrad­ed to the lat­est ver­sion of Word­Press (2.5) yes­ter­day, and now one of my favorite plug-ins (Now Read­ing) isn’t work­ing! You can see the books I’m read­ing at the moment over there in the side­bar, and I can get into the admin­is­tra­tive inter­face, but the library dis­play doesn’t work. Any of the actu­al […]
