You may or may not have noticed some changes to this blog over the last few days. Here are a few details of what has been happening.
- I’ve upgraded to WordPress 2.0. There are been many scare stories out and about of it being buggy and not ready for release yet, but I took the plunge and it appears to work great. I like the Admin panel changes and the new post WYSIWYG editor based on TinyMCE.
- I’ve changed themes to use the fantastic Squible theme [more at the Squible flickr group]. This theme is really a breath of fresh air, bring a clean look, integrated tagging and tag searching, flickr integration and much much more.
- I’ve changed the permalink structure. With mod_rewrite available on my host box, I’ve updated it from (for example):
This means many broken links all over the place and possible syndication chaos for a bit, but is better in the long term.
- My feed has been consolidated into a single one (RSS) via feedburner. I’m not sure if this is a good idea because it decreases user choice, but I’ll see how it goes. I’d urge anyone already subscribed to resubscribe using this feed. If your software does auto-discovery, it should be found.
