Blog spam
Aug 1st, 2011 by Ken Hagler

A while back I had to turn off com­ment­ing on my weblog after the anti-spam plug­in I had been using stopped work­ing with new­er Word­Press ver­sions. About a mon­th ago I start­ed using the Akismet plug­in, which made it pos­si­ble to turn com­ment­ing back on. One of the fea­tures of Akismet is a dis­play of total spam and total real com­ments over time, and accord­ing to that dis­play for the mon­th of July (the first full mon­th that I used it) my weblog received 489 spam com­ments and two real com­ments.

WordPress glitch
May 31st, 2011 by Ken Hagler

Over the week­end my weblog, which is han­dled by Word­Press 3.1.3, stopped responding–any attempt to load a page in the weblog or the admin­is­tra­tion pan­el result­ed in a blank page. A bit of Googling turned up that this is a known prob­lem called a “white screen of death” which affects Word­Press and has mul­ti­ple caus­es. For­tu­nate­ly, I was able to fix it by renam­ing my plu­g­ins fold­er to “plu­g­in­soff,” at which point I could log into the admin­is­tra­tive inter­face (with all my plu­g­ins dis­abled). After that, chang­ing the name of the fold­er back to “plu­g­ins” restored every­thing to nor­mal func­tion.

My best guess is that the WPtouch plug­in, which I had updat­ed short­ly before I noticed the prob­lem, either didn’t like being updat­ed or got cor­rupt­ed some­how. I’m not sure I’ll both­er with fur­ther inves­ti­ga­tion, since the plug­in is meant to show a nice iPhone/iPod Touch-friendly ver­sion when my weblog is viewed from those devices, and I haven’t real­ly used my iPod for any­thing but lis­ten­ing to music since I bought an iPad.
