Turned off gallery access

I’ve disabled access to my Zenphoto gallery for the time being. Alas, I haven’t had the time to keep the gallery software properly maintained. Hope to switch to another gallery tool that’s easier to use and well integrated into WordPress, but that likely won’t happen until late this year at the earliest.

Goodbye OpenID

I’ve decided to stop using OpenID on this website for several reasons: The OpenID plugin for WordPress was last updated in 2012. I have stopped following its development, and I have also stopped trying to get past/possible issues to work properly with my site and theme. I just have not had the time for the […]

Installed Live Comment Preview

Sadly, one of my favorite WordPress plugins, FiloSofo Comments Previews, appears to be broken and orphaned (last updated in 2008, with no response from the developer on its issues since then, afaict).

Comment policy & preview

When I started using WordPress last year, one aspect took me a while to understand and refine: blog comments. What’s more, commenting is the most obvious form of interaction on this site. But I wanted to avoid spam. How badly I wanted to avoid any kind of junk ad, specious link, mindless troll, content leech, […]

New site feature: random image in the sidebar

Already a new feature! I added a random thumbnail image from my gallery to the sidebar in this site. This might seem odd, considering my preference for design that emphasizes text. But I’m aiming for a little bit of imagery, to occasionally but not disruptively vary the appearance. You would see the image if you […]
