Maintenance Ongoing

Yes, as I suspected, there have been a few hiccups with the changes. I was hoping I could sneak things through, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Looks like I have to re-learn a few things about WordPress…

Trackback Problems in WordPress

If anyone has sent any trackbacks to this site, I apologize that they have not made it into the comments here. WordPress seems to be having some issues with trackbacks. I’ve tried everything I know to try, but I have had no luck so far.

I have posted in the WordPress support forums where you can read more about my issue. If anyone has any recommendations, suggestions, help, or even sympathy, they will be much appreciated.

It’s a shame this is happening since trackbacks are one of the reasons I redeveloped the site and chose Wordppress to power it. Hopefully, with some brilliant programmer’s help, or some blind luck, I can get this sorted out.

WordPress 2.0.3 Easy Upgrade

Mark Jaquith has a more convenient way of upgrading for users of WordPress 2.0.2. Check out his page with updates to only the necessary WordPress files. This update worked perfectly for me.

WordPress 2.0.3

Since my blog uses WordPress, I feel I should mention that WordPress 2.0.3 has just been released. It’s a security and bug fix and it has been recommended to all users to upgrade to this new version.

So, WordPress is Pretty Hot

Yeah, I’m seriously regretting using Mambo now. I’ve just been using WordPress for about a half hour now and it is so much more user friendly. I really think I could have the non-gallery portion of my site up and ready to go in no time.

The problem is that pesky Gallery software. I think I could leave it as a standalone, but I would have to do some serious changes to the CSS files. That’s not really a big deal at first glance, but really, without being able to see it in IE, I’m bound to be in for a few surprises considering it’s so bloody hard to get that script to do what you want.

That’s all fine and good. I know how I could do that. One tricky thing though would be to try to get a search block for the images working on the non-gallery pages. Right now I can do that through Mambo (which, by the way, was a total fluke of coding and I still don’t really know what I did). I really don’t think I would have such good luck with WordPress. I really want people to be able to search my images from anywhere on my site, but I don’t know if that’s going to be possible.
