- The internets are overwhelming, I’ve barely done any knitting the past couple days. WP 2.7 is so nice I think I might start blogging again. #
- Installed a cute lil’ audio player plugin for WordPress. Can’t believe I didn’t find a way to do that before. I was making people DOWNLOAD. #
- Running WordPress 2.7 RC1, tweeting from dashboard w/ Twitter Tools. Too bad I overwrote the plugin and broke the styling changes I’d made. #
I just started (again) using the TwitterTools plugin for WordPress to post individual tweets directly to my blog. Problem is, I wasn’t happy with the way the tweets were being displayed — raw and unstyled, and with no linkback to the status page on Twitter. When you use the post-to-digest feature it does have the linkback, and it’s easy to style because you can target the enclosing list element. So I wanted to copy those two features over for the individual tweet-to-blog posts. So I hacked that plugin into shape! I’ll post the steps I took in case it comes in handy for someone else.
- Learning Markdown, not that there’s much to learn. Installed the plugin for WP, now checking to make sure it’s not screwing up older posts. #

- The internet is lots of fun today. Just uploaded my old demos album to Last.fm. Might as well. http://tinyurl.com/59jchq #
- My MacBook Pro battery only works for 40 mins now, even after calibrating. Will call AppleCare but I bet I have to take it in to the store. #
- Took my MBP to the Apple Store and they gave me a new battery. Grade A customer service as always. :-) #
- A very silly friend of mine put a buck in my tip jar, but nothing’s showing up in the links widget! Bah. #
- Ran up against a bad bug in the WP 2.5 plugin auto-updater. It deleted a plugin, then installed & activated another one I’d never heard of. #
- Comment on “Customizable Comment Listings v2.0″:
For some mysterious reason the 2.5 plugin auto-updater deleted this plugin for me, then installed and activated a copy of “Hide or Cut Post Text” instead. I had to install CCL 2 by hand.
- Looking for a lifestream plugin for WP that’ll pull my twits etc. into the db, which I’m currently doing by hand. Most of them just cache. #
- @jennatar: That’s one of the ones I’m looking at, yep. :-) Also WP-Autoblog & WP-o-Matic #
- @jennatar: works for me in GReader. #
- @jennatar: the url google decided to use is like so: http://tinyurl.com/2l6wn7 #
- @jennatar: view source? perhaps your browser isn’t set up to directly view rss feeds #
- @jennatar: How come I can see it then? maybe run it through a validator #
- No progress on the lifestreaming thing, but I do have nicer pagination! I’m going with a lateral approach, heheh. #
- Can raccoons open windows? Because one is trying to do that right now, dammit. #
