A short bout of insomnia has resulted in a major overhaul to the site. Thanks for being patient while I get everything back up to normal working state. Most of these changes were made to make comments easier and more secure to support comments on entries. Rather than go into details, here's a list of the changes:
- upgraded from Movable Type 2.6 to 3.1
- added support for TypeKey registration
- added support for "nofollow" href tags
- installed MT-Blacklist comment spam filter plugin
- installed MT-SimpleComments plugin (unifies comments and trackbacks)
- upgraded to a Flickr Pro account
- switched PhotoSpace fom Gallery to a Flickr Gallery 0.6
Future changes checklist:
- fix WAP support for WAP browsing
- add Flickr photostreams as a sideblog and PhotoSpace extention
- update menu and entry navigation (future proof urls)
- comment entry and display improvements
The best way to take advantage of the new changes is simply to register for a TypeKey account. It's very easy and will let you post comments not only on my site, but any TypeKey-enabled blog. No more filling out your name, email, and website each time.
Unfortunately, either the new MT3.1 or Blacklist has made my site very slow, or there is a problem with my host. Please be patient while I try to fix this. I just hope I don't have to do a full reinstall.
