  1. Permalink Redirect 0.6.2 Released

  2. WordPress 2.1 "Ella" Released

    WordPress 2.1 "Ella" has been released, only a few days after RC2 was out for testing. I have upgraded all my WordPress blogs (and shared my experience here). So far so good, but I won't say there's any wow-factor in it. Mark was frustrated that Atom 1.0 is …
  3. Upgraded to WordPress 2.1 "Ella"

    WordPress 2.1 "Ella" has just been released. The upgrade is much more painless than upgrading some of my sites from Drupal 4.7 to 5.0. Just do the following on the command line. $ cd /var/www/scott.yang.id.au/htdocs $ svn switch http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress …
  4. Updated to WordPress 2.0.7

    10 days after WordPress 2.0.6 has been released, the developers have just announced the release of WordPress 2.0.7, because of an SQL injection issue. Kudos to the dev's for such a quick turn around, unlike some unnamed big company who would only patch on the holy …
  5. Habari, a New Blogging Tool

    Habari: a new PHP5-only, object-oriented and PDO driven blogging tool.

  8. Why WordPress.com's VIP Hosting is not for me

    Matt Mullenweg of WordPress.com has released VIP Hosting, where you get to host your blog on WP.com's load balancing failover-ready hardware/infrastructure, using your own domain name, and there will be dedicated system administrators looking after network, hardware, database, web server and installation of WordPress to ensure everything …
  9. WordPress Themes, a new SEO Technique

    It was on wp-hackers last week, and I have seen it numerous times before. If you are a good design artist, and CSS is your thing, then the best way to promote a website might be by adding links to your freely distributed themes for the content management systems of …
  10. Updated to WordPress 2.0.4

    WordPress 2.0.4 has just been released, and use "svn switch http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.0.4/" command if you subversion to manage WP installations, instead of going through seemingly complicated upgrade process. It's a security update (hopefully no new functionalities, unlike 2.0.3), so …

  14. Getting WordPress.com Account, Not Blog

    WordPress.com has opened registration so you can get an account without blog attached. Useful if all you want is an API key so you can use products like Akismet, a centralised comment/trackback spam filter (which I previously reviewed here).
  15. Ping-O-Matic Almost Unpingable

    Not sure what is going on, and I have not seen others blog about it, but for the past few days Ping-O-Matic is not working for me. Web page took forever to load, if it loads at all. XML-RPC stalls all my posting. The only thing that seems to be …
