Blogs & gallery

The last remains of b2evolution have been cleaned up & deleted today.
I’ve imported my old blog from there on this one and spent a considerable amount of time deleting & tagging old entries.
Mmmm, WordPress how I love thee. Sadly all the old comments are gone as well, but that’s life. Unfortunately a lot of spambots still love b2evolution so I saw a lot of hits on ye olde blogs dir. Therefor I dropped a .htaccess file in there with the following code:
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule (.*) http://X111.com/$1 [R=301,L]

That makes them get automagically redirected to the front page and keeps my apache error log from filling up with crap.

The gallery has also been updated. WinMerge saved the day by allowing me to update the templates in a fraction of the time it would normally take. We now have captcha spam protection in there and at last… RSS feeds! Something most of you will probably not care about but I love it to bits as it’s one step closer to my ultimate dream of building a newsfeed which contains all the updated bits from everywhere on the site.

Back to WordPress

b2evolution looks pretty damn stale at the moment. Hardly any new themes or releases. Promises of a new major withstanding it’s all starting to look a bit old and if it weren’t that to the best of my knowledge it’s still the best of the multi-user systems I’d switch to something else.
In the mean time it’s time to resurrect this thing to see what WP can do and post some randomness now and again. Still not linked anywhere so all is quiet for now.

Saturday evening…

let’s see, I’ve added the Stockholm skin by www.clotman.com, I hope he’ll make more because it looks great and I simply don’t have the time right now to make anything decent looking.
We’re already blogging with 12 people and more are added almost every day. When you go to b2evolution.net you see the most recent updated blogs there, seems we’re making up a big percentage of the userbase O.o
I thought it would be in use way more.

Been reading Ender’s Shadow for the past couple of hours.
It’s a great read thusfar and it means a lot to me that Shimi sent me one of her favourite books.
50 days til she’s finally here.

I need more money *nods*

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
