Blogs. Everyone has one, it seems. I feel like I'm somehow missing out by not pouring out my thoughts to the wide, wide web. And yet, at the same time, there's that little feeling nagging away in the back of my head that wasting space and people's time is an act of hubris (well, I am a reserved Brit, you know; ok, I'm a Brit at least).
It is with great pleasure and a sigh of relief that I annouce that the software which powers Men Who Knit, Drupal, has been upgraded to its latest revision.
The only thing which is currently lacking from the previous site are the weblinks. That section of Drupal was completely rewritten and will take a bit of work to restore, but it should be done soon.
Some new features are the ability to syndicate parts of the site, such as your blog or message forums. We can also bring in content from other sites via RSS, so if you know of some good content available via this method, let me know!
I made some changes to the web server to enable "Clean URLs" which you'll notice result in a much prettier looking URL in your address bar once you make your first click after logging in. This makes it easier to forward links to others, as well as making the site more search-engine friendly.
I've done some minimal testing and haven't come across any errors yet, but please send me a message if you experience any weirdness (e.g. pages not found) while using the site.
I'm also planning to upgrade the software the site runs on, but have been reading some horror stories of the process, so I'm taking time to plan things accordingly to minimize any downtime.
It looks so cool. How do i do it.
I've started a project but it's not coming out right. I got some Nora yarn which is not cheap so don't want to waste it!
Gabriel got me started on this but he's away on vacation now.
