Movin’ on up

Big all around upgrade tonight. With a six pack of Bud, needle nose pilers and a screwdriver, I’m happy to say everything went smoothly.

Hardware upgrades to this old Sawtooth:

Studio2f changes:

  • Upgraded to Moveable Type 3.1
  • Trackbacks are now inline with comments on the entry pages. As I see it a trackback is a comment, it’s just not local. Trackbacks are shaded with pattern to set them apart from comments.
  • Comments can now be formated with Markdown. (here’s the syntax, Marty. Now you can leave ‘pretty’ comments)
  • Monthly archives are back
  • Blacklist updated to the new MT3 version. Comment spam has been getting out of hand lately.

Still to do:

  • TypeKey logins for commenting is börked. I can’t figure out what the problem is. Non- TypeKey comments work fine. Possibly because I don’t have Crypt::DSA compiled? I’m not sure. I need to do some research on TypeKey and yes… I have a token
  • I’ve switched from Textile to Markdown. There’s a lot of old posts with Textile formatting that are a little screwy. I’ll slowly get around to updating them.
  • I still have to add templates for comment previews, search results and comment errors. Until i get around to it— it’s not pretty.
  • Miscellaneous (minor) CSS and structure problems. There may be formatting glitch on Opera.
  • Stylesheets need tweaking to handle all the Markdown formatting options
  • More feeds

Guaranteed there’s a bug here and there. If something doesn’t work as it should, let me know.


What do you know! TypeKey sign ins are working now. Shazam.

My refrigerator isn't working the way it should.
