This is almost silly, so I’ll be surprised if it works flawlessly, so far though it seems to work well enough.
I got Twitter Tools to work with identi.ca by modifying the file
twitter-tools.php so that the URIs used are:
Hopefully this is all that’s needed
Russel, I’m glad I’m using WP’s markdown plugin. I’ve never experienced any of the problems you are having relating to
<pre> tags or
<code>. It just works!
I wonder what howto on codex.wordpress.org Wolfgang’s talking about. I’ve been trying to get an SSL certificate onto my blog as well, but that didn’t seem possible at the time.
(I would have left a comment on the entry itself if I didn’t have to log in. Why on earth would I want to create an account of another person’s blog?)
I’ve just added the plugin Ultimate Tag Warrior to my site. I’ve spent some time adding tags to posts, but I’m not done with it yet. The main reason for this exercise was that I really wanted a tag cloud It just seems like a much better idea than using categories (I used them as tags anyway).
I’m pretty happy with the result. I just have to find the time to add tags to all posts so that the cloud really represents what I write about.
Absolutely painless! The admin interface looks a lot nicer and of course the blog itself looks just the way it did before. I could stop using the Smart Comment Link plugin, that functionality is now built into WordPress (this required some minimal changes to the theme). Getting Markdown Extra and Search Everything was a walk in the proverbial park.
Oh, it also looks like I haven’t lost any entries
I’ve just managed to get my SSL certificate from CAcert.ort installed on
therning.org. My main goal was to get the login page a little more secure. However, it seems WordPress (WP) is sorely lacking when it comes to dealing with
HTTPS. The only consolation is that a quick search on Google shows that WP isn’t worse than other OSS blog software.
I harbour some hope that the next minor release of WP (that should be version 1.6) will address the issue. Otherwise I might feel forced to take up PHP programming, something I’ve managed to stay away from so far.
Well. It looks like I can use the XMLRPC to post to my WordPress blog. Nice! Information on setting it up is here.
I had some problems producing proper Swedish characters in WordPress for a
little while. This only happened when using Mozex and
Vim to edit posts.
The solution was quite simple I use UTF-8 encoding throughout my entire
Ubuntu GNU/Linux system, every application defaults to it. Except Firefox, it
seems. Making sure that the Character Encoding was set to UTF-8 solved it.
