New WordPress Functionality Wednesday, Mar 15 2006 

I’ve just completed something to enhance WordPress (strictly speaking, not a plugin yet until I assemble it). It allows you, on single post pages, to instantly edit the post’s content by clicking on it. The changes (through AJAX) are immediately sent back to the server and saved.

Anyone interested to beta test it?


WordPress 2.0 Friday, Dec 30 2005 

WP 2.0 is out, continuing with the pattern of one release every 9-10 months (c.f. WordPress 1.2, WordPress 1.5).

State-of-the-Art? Wednesday, Dec 14 2005 

WordPress is a state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. What a mouthful. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

That bit that is bolded is no longer accurate. You see, someone filed a bug regarding WordPress 2.0 generating Atom 0.3 instead of 1.0. Matt stated:

This will not be in 2.0.

Matthew, I think you’re a great guy and I love WordPress, but this is ridiculous; nay, Ridonculous, as Scott would say. I wouldn’t be as mad if Matt had provided a reason why this won’t be in 2.0, but he didn’t. Let’s hope he was kidding.

Airhead wants RSS for Christmas. I want Atom 1.0.

WordPress Technorati Tags Favelet Friday, Oct 14 2005 

A sweet hack for all users (and maybe even regular WordPress users). I’ve whipped a neat little favelet for adding Technorati tags to your WordPress posts. The source code is below (WPMU has some serious formatting problems, so I couldn’t make it a link).

javascript:var $tags=prompt('Enter tags', ''); $tags = $tags.replace(/([^ ]+)/gi, '<a href="$1&quot; rel="tag">$1</a>'); document.forms[0].elements['content'].value+='\n\nTags: '+$tags; void 0;

Tags: So Far, So Great Tuesday, Oct 4 2005 

I’ve been using for a few weeks now, and I’m fucking loving it.

How do I describe? Imagine Blogger, multiply that by 5, add a great-looking backend and even better frontends (I mean, this current template is fucking brilliant), plus lots of “AJAX” and you’d get something close to WordPress. 

I do have some gripes about the WYSIWYG editor and the file upload system, but other than that I can’t complain.

So far, so great. Matt et al, you’re doing a bang-up job. Keep up the great work.
