I’m All About the Plug-Ins

I’ve dropped in some plug-ins that should make at least some of you happy, because one of the plug-ins should allow you to edit your comments under two conditions: First, that you make the edit within 30 minutes of posting, and second that you’re still using the same IP number as you had when you made the first post. This should probably work just fine for the majority of you; now you can fix that grammatical error without posting a second time to complain about how you made a grammatical error and can’t fix it, waaaah.

Other plug-ins: One that moderates posts after a certain amount of time, so old posts aren’t slammed with whatever spam gets through Akismet, and wp-cache, which creates static pages, to help the database keep from getting slammed during those high traffic moments. I also put a widget up to tell you how many other people are currently loitering on the site. Because I know you’re curious that way.

Anyway, enjoy your new comment editing powers. Try to use them only for the power of good.

Also: The observant among you will note that I’ve reposted the feeds for Whateverettes, By the Way and the Ficlets blog. So once again you can overdose in the glory of my Web hunting and pecking.

    Hey! I resemble that remark.

    Actually though, what Steve said. Thanks.

  2. So, um … how does the comment editing thingummy work, anyway? In Safari and Firefox on OS X, I don’t see any obvious way of retrieving a comment in order to edit it.

    Neither can I.

  4. So how much spam typically gets through Askimet? I haven’t installed it on my own WP blog yet, but I plan to…

  5. Do you have an RSS feed up and running yet? I couldn’t seem to figure it out if you do, and believe me I tried for a whole 30 seconds!
    Thanks!

  6. Hey! The place looks fabulous! However, I think your LJ feed is no longer feeding. If you want to point me to the RSS feed here (color me clueless but I can’t find it), I’ll create a new one for you and post the link here.

  7. When all the old posts got picked up by my RSS devourer, I didn’t notice they were old posts … so I started trying to comment but I got 404 errors when I tried to preview or publish. So I thought John is working on the site, and then came back and tried again, and after more failures, finally saw I was trying to comment on 6 month old posts…

    So here is my only chance to ask why you spelled “Heads up” with an apostrophe… [ I did have some more substantial comments to make elsewhere]
