Not Playing With Blog

My head going ping when I realised I'd misspelled sanitize in the template code

Well, that took a little longer than anticipated and involved a little more than I’d intended but all’s well that ends well. And I don’t think I actually broke comments at any point.

I’ve upgraded the MT installation to v3.121. MT-Blacklist is now installed and guarding my comments. Almost as side effect of all this activity the email subscription to a post’s comments, and indeed to the entire blog, is now fixed so it will actually allow valid emails, rather than rejecting everything. Oh, and I’ve allowed some HTML in the comments, though I think bare URLs should still get automagically linked. Possibly I’ve broken something somewhere. If anyone notices that do let me know :-)

I’m getting very tempted to play with subcategories but I think I’ll try putting that on hold for a little while, maybe until the weekend ;-)

Name and email address are required. Email address is never shown. If you enter a URL your name will be linked to it (this and other links will have the rel attribute set to contain nofollow). Markup allowed: <a href="" title="" rel=""> <em> <strong> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <p> <br />. Anything else is stripped; please be valid. Single linebreaks automatically convert to <br />, double to <p>'s. Additionally anything that looks like a bare URL should get automagically linked. Many acronyms and abbreviations are also automagically handled.
