According to Brian Kernighan, “Everyone knows that debugging is twice as hard as writing a program in the first place. So if you're as clever as you can be when you write it, how will you ever debug it?” With that in mind I'm re-exposing myself to the spaghetti that is the Aihato WordPress code base.

WordPress 3.2 introduced an admin bar, which is fixed at the top of the window when you're logged in. An annoying side-effect that has been bugging me for some time is that, although this pushed down most of my content, HTML elements that used absolute positioning stayed in there old place. This didn't look particularly good, but I left it hanging for a long time because it only affected logged in users (that is: either me or Halfgaar).

To my great surprise, thanks to Tobias Sjösten, I found out that commenting was broken on blog.bigsmoke.us. I couldn't pinpoint the exact problem, but it must have been introduced with some WordPress upgrade somewhere along the line. I never noticed it because it did work for logged in users. (If I must really guess, I suspect a silent ReCaptcha version compatibility problem.)

In February I was interested in posting to WordPress from the command-line, a possibility that I enjoyed when I wanted to apply some CLI-magic to some of my MediaWiki installations in the past.

Wordpress does automatic paragraph formatting using the wpautop filter, some PHP code originally developed by Matt Mullenweg. For most of the time that this blog has existed, I've disabled the wpautop filter using the following two lines in my theme's functions.php file:

On Oktober, the 25th, in what will be known to future generations as a historical move, Wiebe changed the A record of www.aihato.nl to point to the new production site running at Ytec. The new site, a collaboration by Ytec and me, based on WordPress, has been in development since May. At least, that's when I started taking notes. There had been some discussion, wire-framing and design done before that time.

I'm collaborating with YTEC on a new website for Aihato. I've picked WordPress to do most of the heavy lifting for this project. So far, I've spent most of my time on this project to get a good development environment in working order, with WordPress living in its own directory and some deployment recipes managed from a Makefile.

During the recent redesign of my blog, I decided that I wanted to have pretty pagination with numbers instead of the WordPress default Older/Newer Posts links. The plugin I decided to use was WP Page Numbers by Jens Törnell.

In this WordPress installation I have a problem with my admin menu. If I add clear: left; to the rules for #adminmenu li.menu-top it appears to be fixed.

Yesterday night, after mucking around with my Subversion repo for this blog for way too long, I finally stopped annoying the designer of my new theme and uploaded it, one and a half year after the last major redesign. Anyway, while implementing the new design for the comment list , I decided it was time to have comment previews.
