Couple of minor tweaks to the new design: I've put the search form back (it's in the footer), and I've added some feeds. If you'd like to subscribe to the main posts without the elsewheres, you can now do so. The feed links are in the footer and will also be shown in browsers … [Read more...] about Design tweaks
Just a quick note to my RSS and LiveJournal peeps: there's a new design here. Among other things, my Twitter feed is now integrated into the page. Unfortunately there are some bugs in the way WordPress caches tweets, so you'll occasionally see "no public tweets" until that gets … [Read more...] about New design!
New WordPress plugin: Mass Format Conversion
Mass Format Conversion applies all content filters to posts and comments and saves them back to the database.

I've been working on this off and on for the last several months, and I'm finally ready to kick it out to the world. I've adopted the long-dormant Whisper CMS and updated it with some new features.

That was a huge number of categories, so I used the category-to-tag converter on the … [Read more...] about Another WordPress plugin: Assign Missing Categories
Back from HighEdWeb ’08
I've just returned from HighEdWeb '08. I came down with a cold the day I left and am just now starting to feel normal, so I was way less bouncy than usual and didn't attend much of the after-hours stuff. Still had a great time, though.

Keyboard navigation, Firefox, and Macs (including how to tab through drop-down boxes in forms)
ETA: Hate the fact that you can't tab to drop-down boxes in forms in Firefox? This solves the problem! I used to be able to test my sites' keyboard navigation just by tabbing around a page in my browser. And then I couldn't. And now I can again. Lemme 'splain. Testing keyboard … [Read more...] about Keyboard navigation, Firefox, and Macs (including how to tab through drop-down boxes in forms)
Got the MRI on my neck. No word yet from the doctor, naturally. The neck is not too bad at the moment, but the insomnia and the migraines have been slapping me around for the last few days.
