The <!–more–> Quicktag is working! It’s working!

Shout it from the rooftops: Yippe-dee-doo-dah, the more tag is functioning! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, man, am I a happy camper right now. I wish the person who fixed this bug would put his/her hand up, so I can kiss his/her feet! ๐Ÿ˜› Just wondering whether my feedback of a couple of days ago (when I grizzled, politely of course, about the misbehaving more tag) had anything to do with this …? Whatever – the moral is clear : Use that Feedback box and good things will happen.

Update 2 November: Just noticed that there is now an icon for the More tag in the visual editor – yay! I’m sure that wasn’t there before … That was the one reason holding me back from using the Vis Editor, not having that More tag.

I seem to go on a lot about this More tag, don’t I? ๐Ÿ˜€

Talking of tags/icons: Now I miss another one! The insert tag. Useful when you’re doing updates on posts – it inserts the date/time.ย  And off I send another Feedback report … hehe, they’ll be getting sick of me very soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Successful test install of Typo

I can’t believe it really worked … I’m still chuffed ๐Ÿ™‚

Typo is weblog software that runs under Ruby on Rails.
Dreamhost recently made this technology available to their account holders.
Since I happen to have an account (mainly for odd-job testing purposes) there, I thought I’d give it a try. Without spending much time on reading up etc., I dived in. And it worked – more or less out of the box.

I’ll write up the installation process and how it worked for me – plus first impressions of Typo – soon. The test blog is at Sardines on Toast.

Akismet – behold your spam crusher

Matt has announced Akismet – but the best overview at this point comes from Michael Hampton: Automattic Kismet.

I have been using Michael’s Bad Behaviour for a while now, and I’ll take his word for it that running a combo of the two will provide the best protection.

Lunacy Unleashed? That’s actually a pretty good descriptor for what spam is.
Eerie choice of blog name, Michael ๐Ÿ˜‰
