Gratuitous golden retriever snaps. Fletch, left. Bert, right.
You’ll be pleased to know that I have pretty much finished messing around with the blog. My desperate hope was that the redesign would give universal satisfaction, but tragically there have arisen a couple of issues. Viz:
â€¢ The “missing elements” error message that pops up when you post a comment is a bug. No elements are actually missing. Just ignore it until I can figure out how to make it go away.
â€¢ Some have observed that the new nested comments feature makes it difficult to determine which comments are new, as new replies to existing comments no longer appear at the bottom of the page, but instead are embedded with the comment to which they reply. Two solutions spring effortlessly to mind:
a) The new “latest comments” feature in the sidebar keeps pretty good track of recent commentular activity on specific posts (older comments fade to grey), so interested parties can keep an eyeball on that thing.
b) The comments have their own RSS feed, so subscribe away.
â€¢ The “odd lady” is back, so quit nagging, already.
â€¢ Horribly, the TacoBlog System will be a limping gimp of a malfunction until I figure out how to keep the posts from disappearing when you click to comment.
â€¢ I Blame The Patriarchy is apparently incompatible with Internet Explorer and ancient versions of assorted other browsers. I have little sympathy for you. What Browser Would Jesus Use? Firefox, Jack.
â€¢ Based on the relatively pain-free success of my recent blog migration experience, I encourage TypePad refugees who are interested in getting the fuck out of that trainwreck to switch over to WordPress without delay. I’m no blogspert, but if you want to know how I achieved this meager accomplishment with absolutely no knowledge of CSS or PHP or herpetology, just email me. You can also click on the WordPress and K2 links at the bottom of the page; they are most informative.
And now, back to the blaming.
