Blog Stuff


This is partly a test entry and partly a note about something else. Firstly the blog front page now contains a sort of “today module” which gives information about posts I’ve made today (or the time since I lasted posted if there are none), holidays today, etc. I think I’ve finally ironed out all the bugs with my template code for that.

Also, MT have released a plugin to implement Google’s (and other’s) new nofollow value for the rel attribute on links. This post will shortly receive a test comment to make sure I have everything working properly. MT-Blacklist does a good job of catching the comment spam I get, but every little deterrent helps.

Update: Everything seems OK after a couple of teething issues. Woo!

Let’s test this out then. My blog page. Google. And finally for now as a test.

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.
