WordPress 2.0.4 Update

Tuesday, August 1st, 2006

It has been a few days now, but I noticed that WordPress 2.0.4 has now been released and is highly recommended due to the fixing of a few security issues. They also list a number of bugfixes as well. So, if you’re running a site based on wordpress it’s time to update. It’s really a […]

Speaking of botnets….

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

I seem to be getting the second flood of trackback spam attempts on the day. LOT’s of ip addresses, from all corners of the globe – most seem to be casino-related trackback spam. I guess botnets are being used for comment spam? It sure looks like a “100 pcs for an hour to do your […]

Cleaning out a few draft posts….

Friday, May 5th, 2006

I really like a lot of features about WordPress. One is the ability to start a draft post and hang on to it indefinitely. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve spent a good part of the afternoon cleaning out a batch of some of the many draft posts I’ve accumulated over the last few weeks. (Along […]

WordPress plugin stattraq speedup

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

I’ve made mention I think that I use the stattraq plugin for wordpress as one of the ways to see where traffic is coming from on the site, etc. etc. etc. I think I mentioned it as one of my stat tracking tools about the time Google Analytics limped out of the gate… Anyway.. one […]

WordPress trackback problem FINALLY SOLVED….

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

For around 3-4 months now I’ve had a REALLY annoying problem with the wordpress install on this site. Trackbacks suddenly stopped working. Somewhere around my 800th post or so while the WMF vulnerability was circulating (between Christmas and New Years) and I was typing furiously – poof…. suddenly trackbacks stopped going out. (Incoming trackbacks seemed […]

WordPress update to 2.0.2

Friday, April 7th, 2006

I had undertaken an update earlier this evening to a “sister site” here…. the onlineradiotv.com site had started out as a wordpress 2.0 site and I thought it would likely be the easiest to upgrade to 2.0.2 which is a security upgrade and therefore high priority, but I’m just now getting to it. I know […]

WordPress 2.0 plugins

Monday, January 9th, 2006

One of the real hesitations I had in moving current sites to WordPress 2.0 was the thought of “what plugins will break?” From what I saw the supported plugins list was short and so was the “broken” plugins list. Which said many were likely untested. So, after I installed a new wordpress 2.0 setup… I […]

WordPress 2.0 first impressions

Sunday, January 8th, 2006

Given that I’ve now had a chance to use WordPress 2.0 a bit, I thought I’d do a couple posts on some of my impressions. For starters, I’m quite fond of the interface for 1.5.2 that I use here. It’s comfortable, I’ve added a few plugins to make life easier and, well… I can’t find […]

New Site

Sunday, January 8th, 2006

I’ll be adding the links shortly, but I’ve got a new site roughed out… it’s along the lines of the previous post. I thought it may not have enough frequent posting to really be an eventful site, but it will have more info than I can devote here…. onlineradiotv.com. A good deal of what I […]
