I’ve gone back to the previous WordPress theme, which is called Ahimsa.

I’m trying out the Twenty Twelve theme that came with the WordPress 3.5 update.

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.

To tag or not to tag

I’m trying out the “tags” feature of WordPress as an experiment.
