Ten Years with WordPress!

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

So a thing happened…

It all started from reading Linux magazine that had a feature article on WordPress and well I must liked it cause I'm still using it! Originally I was hosting my own website from home, but after quite a few years I then moved to hosting with Gandi and its lived there ever since… 😀

See the fireworks VK7HSE's Ramblings created by blogging on WordPress. Check out their 2015 annual report.

Medium plugin

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

I'm new to medium, well actually I've only made one posting, that was only to check that I have cross posting from medium to WordPress disabled. Ok the purpose of this post is to make sure that it's enabled the other way!

It appears that I didn't have it setup correctly but I think that's been resolved…

Gremlin in the Server!

Sunday, April 7th, 2013

Over the last few days I've noticed that my web server has been a little unreliable. As usual there's nothing obvious in the logs to recommend just what the cause might be. I've made some changes via ISPConfig and it's possible that I may have set up something wrong! as GoogleBot has complained that it can't reach the robots.txt file (this is in the root of the web server and is visible to me) So there's a gremlin hiding here somewhere!

Gremlin

This is also effecting my mail server, So the occasional mail is bouncing (inwards) I just hope that this isn't the beginning of a failing SQL table…

Site Update Randomness

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Yesterday (30th November) I rebuilt this server due to a slight problem/mistake that I caused when attempting to install ISPConfig3 on a server that had already been configured with a working environment. Notice how I said 'working' because after completing the install of ISPConfig3 this is where things got rather complicated rather quickly! I've not had much experience with ISPConfig but I was keen to see how it works and to see if it would make setting up email & web services. Well after 2 actual rebuilds I believe that I've managed to achieve what I set out for.

After the 'First' install (ISPConfig) It totally broke the server! All Web address resulted in 500 errors! Postfix was complaining about SASL Authentication I knew that I was either going to spend a lot of time trying to sort out the mess or just cheat and start a fresh. So after about 10 seconds, I said to myself…  "SCREW THIS" let's just backup what I need and start fresh (something that is clearly stated for ISPConfig!)

Skip forward to mid morning, and things were going well until I enabled squeeze backports, then ran a system update thinking that gives me the advantage of updated software that's not included with Debian Stable. Oh boy what a "HUGE" mistake that was! My fresh install was now pretty much in the same condition as it was when I broke it!

So again, do I even attempt to work out just how things went so horribly wrong? Oh no screw that! Enter rebuild #2. So one would expect by now that I should have a slight better idea on what/whatnot to do! Yeah OK I'm learning! but in all fairness this server is all about learning. I'm not qualified in this field of work, for me it's just a hobby.

So there's going to be broken links until I restore some content (wiki, statusnet, forum) as I'll be working on that in the coming days… 🙂

Jetpack & Social Networking

Sunday, November 11th, 2012

I've most likely missed when this was implemented, but I just happened to notice a listing under plugins settings called "Social" this has listings for Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr,Yahoo & LinkedIn.

So the purpose of this post is to test the links for Facebook, Tumblr & LinkedIn as I already use WordTwit Pro for posting to Twitter. I gave up on using Facebook plugins because every time Facebook altered their API it always broke 3rd party plugins. The other issue is the free top level DynDNS domain name I'm using was blacklisted some time back so I can't even post messages that includes the domain as it warns you that the domain is responsible for abuse so it's banned .

So I'm interested to see how the Jetpack add-on handles posting, whether it simply places the body of the post on to  my Facebook wall, or if it summarises and links back to the original post, because if it's the latter then it's not going to work for me as intended.

I don't think there's going to be a problem with Tumblr or LinkedIn as they don't have such a restrictions…

Ok enough talk let's see what happens! 😉

Oops WordPress 3.5alpha

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

I've uploaded to the latest nightly (as of writing) and it appears that page links are broken. Posts are fine so will have to await for tomorrow's build to see  if this is fixed, or I'll need to file a bug report (if not reported already)

So one doesn't use nightly builds unless you expect some breakage 🙂

Trial use of WPGplus

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

One of the frustrating things about Google+ is the lack of an API for developers to be able to write 3rd party plugins for either posting to or reading from Google+

It's been a while now since I last checked on WordPress.org to see if there's been any progress with a plugin for posting from WordPress to Google+ and to my surprise I stumbled across WPGplus

I'm not sure if it's going to be suitable just yet, but at this point it looks like the only solution. So this post will be my first at using it (WPGplus) so let's see how it fares!  😉
