Just installed the WP Super Cache plugin to see if my problem is related to WordPress hitting the processor too hard. Going to install it on all of our other sites so looks like a afternoon doing updates and backups.

Sore arse Monday

By , April 21, 2008 9:47 pm

Yea, hell of a title but that’s been my gripe all day. Guess I over did it yesterday with the bending and squatting while working on the truck, cause the muscles in my arse have been screaming at me all day long. Along with the ones on the inside of my upper legs. Ah, will this too will pass. Just wish it would hurry…

Got the info so I could point the domain name at the new site. Got the transfer done and set up the site then installed WordPress and got it configured. Found and downloaded a theme and installed it and have several posts transfered over so far. Still got the e-commerce program to install and configure and then some cross linking between the two to figure out. Slowly, slowly, eats the elephant…

Found and modified a plug-in for WordPress to make it show the posts in the categories on the Nero Wolfe site from oldest at the top to newest at the bottom using the post ID. Had been looking at the code in the theme I am using but things weren’t making sense for some reason. Turned out I was looking at the wrong file πŸ™„ so I could have done it without the plug-in but this way I can always turn it off and don’t have to modify anything if I change themes so it’s all good!

Walked across and looked at the ground around where the boat had been and it looks like the deed was done prior to the last rain as there are no tracks around where it was dragged to be loaded into the truck. And from the paint on some rocks it was dragged. I suspect it was a couple of drunk rednecks that ride by on a regular basis and kept seeing it sitting there. Wish I could have seen the looks on their faces when they saw what a piece of crap they stole. πŸ˜†

Gonna read a few feeds and hit the sack. Till tomorrow… πŸ˜‰

Simple Tabs Problem Solved

By , April 15, 2008 12:13 am

If you have a carriage return in one of your terms database Name fields it can cause “Suggested Tags From” as well as “Display Click Tags” to quit working. Just spent several hours trying to find why it quit working and ended up looking at the database since removing and reinstalling didn’t do anything. Updating to a later version did nothing. Finally went into the database and found where WordPress stored the tags data (in what they call the terms field) and started looking for something that didn’t look right. Found a couple of things that looked weird but then found one field that was twice the size of any other and noted it looked like a carriage return was in the middle of the field. Edited the field and removed the return then refreshed the page I was working on and everything worked correctly again. You have to go in and edit the database fields with phpMyAdmin or something along those lines directly to fix this problem but it does the trick. Now to make sure it doesn’t happen again…

And as it is tomorrow and have solved that really irritating problem and can now sleep, I am going to bed… πŸ˜‰

Getting closer with the Nero Wolfe Site

By , April 14, 2008 11:15 pm

But not quite there yet. Got about 60 more posts to go so I’ve managed to update nearly a hundred a day in the last two days. Of course at least a fair number of that last batch are gonna be the ones that have to have the books rescanned but I’ve got that down to around 10 minutes a book for scanning resizing and other assorted text cleanup on the post so not too bad.

Once I get the last ones done then I can change the theme and start working on customizing it to look and work the way I want it. 😎

Simple Tags went weird on the Wolfe site while ago and I haven’t gotten it back working right yet. Not sure what happened other than it’s eaten up an hour or so of my evening. πŸ™ Guess I will do the uninstall bit and see if it will work when I reinstall it. Have already removed it and reuploaded it from the computer but from things on the site it leaves stuff in the database so guess I will have to remove those bits too with the uninstaller. Still working on this site fine. Damn software… πŸ‘Ώ

Found a site that still linked to an old domain name I had lost years ago and clicked on it to see who now had it and it went nowhere. Checked it in the whois and was not taken! So went to GoDaddy and bought it for a couple of years and pointed it to the site for now. New one is so now those old links out there have come home again. πŸ˜‰ Now if the folks that got my .net will just let it lapse… πŸ™„

Gonna go and try one more time to get the simple tabs working and then hit the sack for the night. Till tomorrow… 😎

Here’s the link to the WordPress Grins plug-in. Well done and done well. πŸ™‚ Makes it a lot easier to add the annoying little smilies to any post or comment. πŸ™„ πŸ˜‰

And yet another test

Still crapping out on the xml file rebuild. Goes through at times with a manual rebuild. Wondering if there is a problem with the new version of WordPress and the google site map plug-in. Will try this one last post and if it craps out too may just disable the plug-in till there is an update ready.

Another test

Ignore if you want…

Well the Google XML sitemap generator crapped out yet again. Finally got it to work after the 3rd try at manually activating it after cutting off the notify bit. So now gonna try it with that turned back on, adding a standard post and see if it was a server problem or something in the notifying part.

And yet another update

Just getting through with yet another WordPress update.

While I was at it I decided to try the new(ish) wiggets thingie for the sidebar. It gets rid of having to hand code my changes every time as well as some of the plug-ins I have had to install such as the bit that shows the latest comments. Easy enough to work with too, being just a drag and drop to add, remove, and rearrange.

Looks and works good enough. Now to see how it posts and does it’s background update to google and

Testing, testing…

Weird things happening when I save a post. Comments working fine. Think it is the Google sitemap thingie. Just changed it to allow background processing for new posts which is why I am writing this content-less post.

Update… Just saved it and everything worked like it should. Guess the background processing is the way to go since it is taking over 12 seconds to process the 3000 + posts on here.

Nice! Should be part of the core instead of a plugin.


By , September 30, 2005 12:23 pm

Got the comment preview plugin found and installed yesterday (thursday) but it wasn’t working. Thought I had already upgraded this site but turned out I hadn’t and it was still running wp 1.5. The plugin required so downloaded it this morning and after completely hosing the site for an hour or so wiped it all and installed a new copy of 1.5.2 and then put the modifications back in.

So the comments preview plugin is now installed and at least showing up. Plan to comment on this post to see…
