So it turns out that I did do something, although I’m not sure what.
I was having theme troubles, and it wouldn’t display properly – sometimes yes, sometimes no… So I killed all the plugins and themes – and started fresh.
Reset the plugins properly, and added a few more. A cute one is the Snap Preview Anywhere plugin – hover over the link and see what this plugin does.
I also want to take a moment to mention Continue reading I did break something!
So it seems that I might have broken something when playing around with the design of my blog, and I think it’s related to the theme I used.
So this is an alternate theme, and I am currently open to suggestions on anything and everything, so drop me a line with your favorite style, idea or just a BOOYA!
So I hope your eyes can handle the theme for now, and we should be back to our regulalry scheduled programming… err… site view as soon as I get it sorted out.
So I’ve upgraded the blog to WP 2.1, and that came with it’s own set of headaches and incompatibilities.
Some of you may have seen the site when it was stuck with an alternate theme for a bit, but it’s OK now, Timmy. Everything’s going to be just fine. Just calm down, and put down the meat cleaver, and we’ll all talk about what to do when open source software that you use absoluetly free of charge stops working, and you want results NOW NOW NOW…..
So I spent some time snooping around and getting updates, and reading more and more on what’s going on and how things can be done, and it seems that anyone with about an hour on their hands could do this too.
But I bet none of them could do the heavy digging into code on their own, like I do.
Oh, and yeah – I’ve updated my Blog Tech page with all the links and versions of what I’m using.
So I now have this blog site thing, right? and I used to have it hosted over there, right? But now, it’s got it’s own lovely space here.
So people reading over there don’t really know what’s going on – some have figured it out and congrats to you.
When commenting for the first time on the new site, a moderation email gets sent to me for approval. Once approved, the comment is visible. Any sequential comments will appear immediately.
Just thought I’d explain that.
So now that I’ve finally got this all up and running, I made a page that explains the inner workings of the site, here.
I’m still working on some PHP code for the comments integrating better with the theme.
It might take a bit, so please be kind and understanding.
So now that I have this new blog, and I’ve chosen a nice simple, clean theme and adapted it to my tastes (so far), it’s time to get down with the nitty gritty of getting the “real” content in.
I’m looking for a good WordPress-compatible image/gallery plugin, one that will actually work. I’m open to any kind of PHP-based gallery, as long as there’s a decent plugin for WordPress 2.0. Any ideas, anyone?
So now I have the option to place pretty much any links I want on my site, and the social conundrum of a “blogroll“, I am going to add some links to anyone with a blog/LJ/site to rant/whatever. Drop a link if you want one posted. I’ll always appreciate a link back. (Tricky part about LJ’s – any friends-locked posts will not show at all.)
The lovely Silvia has asked why Bill Gates has never done any kind of “The Apprentice” TV show. All speculations are welcome.
So I have this new blog, y’see?
And when I post, it get placed nicely at the top of my posts – just like in the past.
But now I have more abilities, capabilities, and when I post, it fires my post over to my LJ as well.
So go ahead and update your bookmarks/favorites/blogrolls/binary address files with my new address: [www.miketheman.net](http://www.miketheman.net).
I expect to be a little more active soon, as now that I have a proper blog.
Also, here’s a nice little clip of our dear Michael Richards, aka Cosmo Kramer of Seinfeld infamy, losing his mind. Continue reading New blogging capabilities
This is just a nice test post where I can view how things look on other views/platforms, etc.
I have set up a site that hosts my blog via http://wordpress.org/ and it’s kind of nice.
Every post there will automatically update my LJ, so you’ll never be out of touch. Commenting is done over there, so that’s a little different.
Wish me luck!
