Thoughts about what I want in a theme

It’s been way too long since I start­ed, but didn’t actu­al­ly fin­ish, the process of mov­ing all the old arti­cles on this site over into Word­Press. I got bogged down and didn’t real­ly fin­ish, so the site stayed half-done and sucky. Now I don’t know if I should even both­er fin­ish­ing. Part of the trou­ble […]

Oh No, I Have That Itch

No, noth­ing like that!

I’ve been look­ing at Word­Press themes. Again. Lots of them.

I have lots of tuto­ri­als book­marked about cre­at­ing your own themes, too. I even have a cou­ple of books on the sub­ject.

One is quite new.

Dan­ger, dan­ger, Will Robin­son!

Oh. That Would Do It! (That Problem With Posting to LJ)

I’ve tried all the dif­fer­ent plu­g­ins that claim to work with Word­Press for cross-post­ing to Live­Jour­nal, but recent­ly I’ve got­ten errors from every­thing. I’ve asked for help from the authors in their forums and noth­ing seemed to be hap­pen­ing. And then I saw this: Banned Because of Live+Press’ Bad Behav­ior. That’s from the cur­rent main­tain­er […]

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, […]

Singing the Joys of WordPress

I have to say, I do love the fact that Word­Press allows me to write posts and sched­ule them to post them­selves to cov­er days when I don’t feel up to blog­ging. I’ve been hav­ing a lot of trou­ble view­ing the mon­i­tor lately–my eyes feel like they’re danc­ing and noth­ing stays in focus, lead­ing to […]

Where are my Gravatars?

I obe­di­ent­ly updat­ed to Word­Press 2.5.1, and lost my Gra­vatars. I’ve checked the set­tings, and they’re still enabled. They’re def­i­nite­ly still in my tem­plates, but nobody gets any­thing but the default “no gra­vatar” pic­ture. Buh?

Whoops! WordPress Plugin Update Issue

One of the neat things about Word­Press 2.5 is that when a plu­g­in that’s in the Word­Press Plu­g­in Direc­to­ry is updat­ed, you get a mes­sage ask­ing if you want to down­load the new ver­sion or upgrade auto­mat­i­cal­ly. If you use the auto­mat­ic option, Word­Press down­loads the new ver­sion, deletes the old one, unzips the down­loaded […]

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 […]
