I am now paypal verified…
My blog address used to be windyweather.net/wp but now it’s only windyweather.net
It made more sense when installing wordpress with other services, such as Coppermine, to put wordpress in a subfolder of the site. But now my blog lives on wordpress.com, so it’s at the top level. You will want to update any book marks you have to point to the new address.
Old web addresses see this post. Just click here to go to the blog front page, or click on the header of this page.
I moved the page back to 2006 to get it off the front page.
The blog has recently been receiving a pile of spam comments. I have activated a CAPTCHA plugin to combat this problem.
Feel free to test this plug-in on this post.
This is a claim for my technorati blog.
Here are the links for RSS feeds for my site. Right click and “copy shortcut” and then paste into your feed reader. Clicking on these links will get you pages of XML.
- WordPress RSS feed links can be found in the meta menu on the site. Both the feeds for posts and for comments can be found there.
- Photo gallery feeds are: viewer descretion is advised.
- SMF Forums – RSS2 compliant feed for the boards.
I’m going to log this problem just so we remember it.
12 Jan 2006 – I noticed that writing a post never returned. And I thought it was a server problem.
13 Jan – In discussions and rooting around in the options I discovered the removing the pingomatic link in options cleared up the problem. Looked like Pingomatic was down. I could not reach it’s website at http://pingomatic.com, but the service would answer a TCP/IP ping.
14 Jan – I checked again and ping answered the website, so I put info for my site into that page. And then I re-installed http://rpc.pingomatic.com in the write options and the post worked correctly.
I’ll log other issues with pingomatic here.
The new SMF based boards are live on the site.
The old boards are still available, but are locked.
I’m investigating Simple Machines Forums as an upgrade from phpBB2 for the forums for this site. Seems like I never can leave well enough alone. In looking around, SMF seems much more modern and has attachments built in. We’ll start with some attractive themes and then probably convert some of the previous themes to SMF, just to get our hands dirty.
Already digging in, I needed to debug the converter for phpBB2 to SMF.
Stay tuned, SMF is pretty cool.
I’ve changed the theme again based on the previous theme and some graphics from a site that I liked. I may tweak the colors a little but at this point I’m pretty happy with the color scheme.
The weather site is now working better. Check out the link to Charleson, OR Weather in the Links section.
