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.

Two months prior to writing a script to upgrade MediaWiki installations using Subversion vendor branches, I wrote something similar for WordPress. It's a little bit more limited and should really incorporate some of the improvements made for the MediaWiki version, but it worked fine so far:

Previously, I tried obtaining a full Atom feed without pagination from WordPress. I didn't succeed, so I ended up writing an XSL transformation which merges all the pages of this Atom feed into one valid Atom XML stream.

I like GeSHi (enough even to have written a language file for it). For ages now, I've used a WordPress plugin by Dan Peverill. But for as long as I've been using the plugin, I've been looking to get rid of it.

Wiebe uses his author Atom feed to generate a list of his blog posts here on his own website. WordPress feeds only display the latest 10 entries. He has written 16 so far. What he needs is a feed with all his entries.

I really, really liked the new style of administration panel that was introduced in WordPress 2.5. In all the time since I've upgraded (and increasingly with every update), I've started to like it more and more. I hadn't thought it possible but everything just felt at exactly the right place, while before 2.5, the whole always felt like it had been thrown together by a blind child. Had I written it myself, it would have at least felt as being thrown together by an adult (chimpanzee).

Since version 2.6, WordPress can be installed in its own directory, separate from your customizations and everthing. Needless to say, this makes upgrading a whole lot easier.

After upgrading to WordPress 2.5.x, I had to fall back on a stock theme because my old customization of the Sandbox theme no longer worked with the upgrade. But, then, it was time to redo my theme anyway. So here you're looking at the first version of my new theme. I might have let it stabilize some more before putting it on-line, but who cares? My reader maybe? Let's just hope he or she doesn't use IE. ;-)
