Minor adjustments...

| No TrackBacks

It's painfully obvious, I'm sure, that I'm not very "here" at the moment... I really do plan to be back with actual content soon. But this HAD to be looked at... it's Jason DeFillippo's Blogrolling Pinger! Check it out if you're on MT and Blogrolling.

I've just added another feature from the too-wonderful Scriptygoddess site... the ability to restrict access to certain posts only while keeping most of the blog open to the public.

This was actually posted by the Scriptygoddesses back in the spring and I finally took the time to implement it on this blog :)

Here are the direct links to the how-to's:

UPDATE 10/26/02: Did a few minor edits. One will hopefully allow cookies to be set whether the site is being accessed with or without "www" in the URL. The other was to add a pop-up "request access" form.

Movable Type 2.5

| 5 Comments | No TrackBacks

Just completed a remarkably smooth, pain-free update to Movable Type version 2.5 :) The database conversion from Berkeley DB to MySQL went smoothly as well.

I started using MT with version 2.0 and haven't done any of the updates in between that, and this latest release, so I still have quite a bit of work to do in order to implement the public search function and TrackBack. The templates and style sheets need to be updated with the code for those functions; then the style sheets have to be edited to match the dog:blog :: cat:chat look.

Hopefully everything will be working as advertised over the next few days, and we can get back to our intended main focus... pet health issues.

UPDATE 10/13/02: Well, that didn't take nearly as long as I thought it was going to. Search form is over by there to the right (under the archive listings) and TrackBack is working. Uh... yes, I know that GM has always had a public search function. It's a moot point now, isn't it :) . I still need to find some time to go through the TrackBack Development blog and the rest of the docs and specs.
