More WordPress Stuff

August 28, 2006 » Geek

So I’ve gotten all the posts over from the old system. I’ve had alot of trobule with getting iG:Syntax Hiliter to behave, though it’s mostly my own fault for not understanding the options and the styling. The “plain text” links still weren’t working, so I took them off.

I’ve been finding little flaws in the theme here and there, and just today created a home.php to override the index and give this nice custom job, more like the old page. I also had problems getting scrobbler to work. I finally realized it wasn’t scrobbler that was messed up, it was wp-cache making the dynamic last.fm content into cached copies.

I figured that out after pulling scrobbler and inserting my own last.fm code straight into the template. Not the best solution, but I never intend on releasing this template as public anyway.

Still chugging away at the static site, should have some of my content back soon.

Hello world!

Well, I’ve gotten the new wordpress up, and finished up (I hope) my theme here. Hopefully there aren’t any little glitches in it, I’m bad at testing code out. Now I’ll start porting in all the content from the old site, which I’ve moved to static.velvetcache.org.

Don’t bother going there though, I hardcoded too much of the Smarty engine into it and so everything is broken since it’s moved to a new domain. Yet another thing to grep and fix :) Oh well, I really like wordpress, so it’s worth it.

Also, maybe it’s just me but I’m having issues with loading some pages, I think wp-cache is buggy, something else to figure out. If something doesn’t load, just try a few refreshes, sorry.

Update: Found the offending line of code, wp-cache should work nicely now :)

This is a post from a previous system. Information, links and images may not be vaild.

I’ve been wokring on alot of web apps recently, and I’ve been cleaning up the 404’s and misc. pages around velvetcache.

Today I tried (reasonably hard) to get typo running. I never did, probably because there seems to be absolutely no documentation out there and I don’t know ruby. Instead I dropped in a copy of WordPress using Dreamhost‘s excellent One-Click install system.

I’ve got to say, WordPress is extremely nifty, and the amount of plugins is enormous. If you want to look at it it’s at http://typo.velvetcache.org/ (dead link), though to be honest it’s just a wordpress blog with some broken css (plugin issues).

I’m going to play with it some more and try to theme it. It’s a really nice app with lots of support, and to be honest, I doubt I’ll ever “finish” my system (I’m still inserting new blog posts via phpMyAdmin!) and even if I do, it won’t be anywhere near as cool. I guess we’ll see.
