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 on Fast and furious? · 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 […]

Since moving to ANHosting I have got lazy…  I used to install and update WordPress manually, downloading the files, unpacking them to the right place on my PC and then copying them up to the web server, but ANHosting include Fantastico as part of their package and that does it all for me.  The only […]

Gravatars

January 18th, 2009 · Comments Off on Gravatars · Technology

One of the few visible changes resulting from my upgrade to WordPress 2.7 is that gravatars are now enabled here.  They are supposed to show up in the ‘recent comments’ box but they don’t, and that is something I have to look into, but they are showing up in the comments of individual posts – […]

Going up

January 15th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Technology

Just noticed that WordPress v2.7 is now available on my host’s Fantastico package so I think I’m going to upgrade right now.  Been itching to do it since 2.7 came out, but having been spoiled by having Fantastico doing all the installations and upgrades here I was really reluctant to go back to doing such […]

Big Pimpin’

August 6th, 2008 · 6 Comments · Life, Music, Technology

I have now finished (for the time being) a spot of minor tweaking and renovation of this blog: what Westwood would call pimping my blog…  nothing major, just tidied up a few things that have been bugging me for ages.

Word Up

August 3rd, 2008 · 1 Comment · Technology

I upgraded to WordPress 2.6 overnight.   All my little customisations seem to have survived, but if anybody spots anything acting strange let me know: I haven’t been totally exhaustive in my testing.
