Archive for the tag "wordpress"

  • WordPress bugs out if you have a category with the same name as a tag. Just thought you’d like to know. #
  • Coffees onCoffee’s on at Jodie’s
  • I’m fighting another cold. We went to Jodie’s today though; that’s always good for you! I took a picture of the coffeemaker for some reason. #
  • It’s spaghetti and meatballs weather #
  • Listening to the new Morning Recordings… I sang on 3 songs, and lead on one? Really? I thought I was only on the one, doing backups! Psych #

  • ‘Bout to buy Wil a martini at the Mel-O-Dee Lounge in El Cerrito #
  • Ugh. htaccess and mod_rewrite are straining my brain something awful. I need to get better at regex, I shoulda had that down cold years ago. #
  • It may be dawning on me that the Twitter plugin I’m using is generating funky dates. Need to roll my own, but that’s a huge can’o’worms. #
  • I just blew my occasional allowance for luxuriousness. It’s a Levenger Circa Zip Folio, size compact, in eggplant. Yay! Can’t wait for UPS. #
  • F’book says (with a broken-heart icon) that a friend went from being "in a relationship" to "single". Am I to post condolences on his wall? #

  • Nice. I just performed some monkey business on .htaccess, to redirect my crufty ol’ URLs to the proper new pages. And I didn’t bork it up. #
  • Well then! I guess I’ve just dispensed with the www in my url. .htaccess is truly truly outrageous! #
  • Huh. iPhone is no longer offering to delete a video after I’ve watched it. I liked that feature, I want it back. #
  • I am almost incapable of typing the word "edit" without an h on the end. Even "edition" sometime comes out as "edithion". #
  • I Am Married to the Berlin Wall (via WFMU)
  • Shit! I tried to upgrade my iPhone and it threw up. Put me in recovery mode. I wonder why? #
  • Having to fix brokeass markup in a WP plugin I’m using. Were these people born in a barn? Do they not validate? Oh btw thanks for the plugin #
  • I’m in the iPhone music store, and oh so very pleased with myself. #
  • I am LOVING the tagging in WP 2.3. I tag all this other shit – my Flickr, Gmail, del.icio.us, iPhoto – so why not? http://tinyurl.com/2w3979 #
  • My old RSS feed URL is prettier now, it’s being redirected. Main one is now at http://edithfrost.com/feed/ Still working on its layout. #

  • I had to reset my Twitter icon & (default) design, just like @zeldman was talking about. Weird. #
  • OK, I admit I’m moving my site to WP, I’m almost ready to flip the switch. Still love EE tho, and happy to endorse it. It’s… just because. #
  • Aw man, I just ran a gnarly MySQL query on my blog db, only barely knowing what I’m doing. Amazingly enough it appears I did not fuck it up. #
  • Ohhhh I think I’m just about to go live with the new WP blog #
  • I’m buzzing and shaking! Been working too too hard on this. Oh and it’s gone live btw, for better or for worse. Gotta dig into htaccess now. #

Moved to WordPress

I’ve changed blogging platforms, from the very great and unimpeachable ExpressionEngine to the also-great and more popular (probably because it’s free) WordPress. Some things are broken at the moment, like the old RSS feeds. And there are some features missing that are probably going to stay missing, like the old membership system. I’ll get the links working again soon at any rate. Well, hope you like it! I sure am having fun playing with it. I’m going to start including daily Twitter digests in my blog so it won’t be so quiet around here. (And you can post comments to them as well, unlike on Twitter.) Anyone can comment, and once you get a comment approved you’ll be unmoderated from there on out. (Provided you behave yourself. ;-)

  • I got 51 songs on the new Amazon MP3. :-) #
  • Messing with a patched-up version of WP while the bf visits with a friend. Lotta other ppl had the same lockout problem, I hope it’s fixed! #
  • Playing with the 2.3 RC1 version of WP. Stupid thing keeps locking me out saying I don’t have cookies enabled. On any computer. Such BS! #
  • Had my head buried in WP all day. I’ve learned how to import posts w/ underscored slugs, & how to do category images. Also: I like widgets. #
  • Testing how importing works from EE to WP, I found a buttload of uncategorized posts that I had to fix. EE makes it easy, but WP? I dunno… #
  • Nice to see such a dizzying array of bugly WP themes. Like always I guess I’d just pick one with the right layout, then hack it to pieces. #
  • Heh! 1Passwd has revealed to me that at some point I changed a certain password to "*******". Literally! Fucked up the cut’n’paste I guess. #
  • SIGH… I’m about to kick the Auranauts off my poor beleaguered website, and onto a Google Group I just created. Please wish us all godspeed #
  • Holy crap, the Chicago Reader got bought out and my friend Sheila Sachs is getting the boot after TWENTY-TWO YEARS as art director! UUUGGGH. #
  • Dang, my NPR puzzle answer was wrong! Or, not exactly wrong, just too obscure. Naturally, my idea of “famous” is very different from theirs! #
  • This week’s puzzle is TOO EASY! And, I just saw three lil’ raccoon babies, cute as they could be, staring curiously as mama hustled ‘em by. #
  • Goo-dammit. The top search query for my site is “scintillating scotoma”, not “edith frost” which is number f’n TWO. I oughta go back to bed. #
  • This is the best: Twitterrific notifying Growl using Chat Bubble style, and “Stay On Screen” set to “Always”. Read tweet, and close. Love it. #
  • Anybody know if there’s a key combo to insert a carriage return into an MP3′s comment in iTunes “Get info”? Other than cutting and pasting. #
  • Oh god I’m playing with WordPress. Feels very much like I’m sneaking around behind ExpressionEngine’s back. :-o #
  • @beep: SSSSSHHHH. I’m just playin’, not switchin’! err… right now… ‘cuz I’ve been wanting to check it out. Seriously invested in EE tho. #
  • Making boxes. I now have boxes for recent del.icio.us links, YouTube faves, Google Reader shared items. Everything’s linked to its RSS feed. #
  • Sez Wil: WTF is a Google Reader shared item? He’s right, gotta fix that. The eyes of the general populace will glaze over upon seeing this. #
  • Singing harmonies along to Laura Gibson, even though I don’t think I’ve ever heard this stuff before. I can do that, I have mad skillz. :-) #
  • This girl is killing me!! Gives me songwriter jealousy: I wish I wrote & recorded this shit myself. www.myspace.com/lauragibson #
