Linking to Twitter

August 11th, 2016 · Comments Off · Technology

This is a bit of a test. I recently dumped Facebook and may well go back to writing more on here, so I thought I would look into a WordPress plugin to cross-publish posts to Twitter. I used to have that ages ago but when it stopped working after something somewhere changed I just dropped […]

Embedding Spotify

March 24th, 2014 · Comments Off · Music, Technology

A friend has suggested that, if I mention a track or album on Spotify I should embed it in the post. Previously I have sometimes put a hyperlink in though often I haven’t bothered. I thought I would try installing a plugin and see what it does. This is just a test of that plugin […]

Baby Got Back

August 23rd, 2011 · Comments Off · Technology

Strap in and brace yourself, because this could get boring very quickly. Keen-eyed regular readers will have noticed the unavailablility of this site for a few days and wondered whether it was the latest victim of Anonymous or Lulzsec or a Tory conspiracy.

No comment

June 29th, 2011 · Comments Off · Technology

It turns out that I effectively turned off comments here when I upgraded WordPress the other day. I forgot that the captcha plug-in I use always screws up when I upgrade WordPress and I have to de-activate and re-activate it to make it all work again. I always forget.  I expect I will forget next […]

Kindness of strangers

June 26th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Life, Technology

I have been having a bit of a frustrating time with WordPress lately. After not writing anything at all for ages – all my recent thoughts have been short enough to fit on Twitter or Facebook – I wrote a post today and when I hit ‘publish’ I did not get the normal message about […]

Fast and furious?

October 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off · Technology

Does it look faster here?   Do pages load any quicker?   I have tried installing a couple of plugins for WordPress: GZIP Pages and WP Minify.  Unfortunately the pages rendered all wrong but worked again when I disabled WP Minify.  Maybe I could fix that with lots of work, but I can’t be bothered with all […]
