Oooookay. I managed to finish all of this earlier than expected, due to certain circumstances not happening, and thus leaving me some time to get rid of the “chore”. Which actually allowed me to learn a lot in very little time about the whole WordPress interface, where to edit what, and various other nifty little things. If I die tonight, at least it’ll be a little less dumb than I was yesterday morning.
Things to know about this “new” blog:
- The RSS feed to this blog has, evidently, changed. If still interested to add it to your favorite aggregator, please get rid of the atom.xml one, and update it to http://tanaquil.paradygma.com/wp-rss2.php. I’ve emailed the LiveJournal staff to update the tanaquil_sl syndicated account with the new RSS data, so this should be done very soon. Also, there’s a feed available for comments, too; it can be found here.
- I have the possibility of allowing users to register to it. I haven’t activated it for the moment, but if I’m asked to (because someone likes to “have an account”, etc): yes, it can be done, and you’ll have your very own account at “my” blog.
- When posting a comment, you’ll need to enter a name and an e-mail address. This is part of the basic anti-spam screening package, but let’s remain positive: these addresses can be anything, not necessarily your real address. There’s no mandatory checking of each address. As said, this is just for spam-busting purposes. The website URL, on the other hand, is totally optional.
- Still in the spam list, be aware that if you enter 2 or more links in a comment, said comment won’t appear until I screen it. This is, once again, to avoid comments left by crappy spam-bots or ill-intentioned people. Anyway, I’ve never seen anyone post links in their comments on my blog, so probably it won’t annoy many of you.
I think this will be all for the moment. For those updating the feed, though, apologies in advance if it sends you the whole lot of “new” entries. It’ll only be a one-time bother, really.
