Archive for the ‘WordPress’ tag
A while ago I switched my theme to Journalist (link at the very bottom of the page) because I thought it was well laid out and solidly designed -- I mean it uses sensible CSS and XHTML etc. The only thing I didn't care for was that it was a little too minimal, if anything. There are lots of themes out there that look gorgeous, but when I tested them they don't render right.
So I have made a hybrid. Just a few edits to CSS and borrowing a few images from the deLight theme later, and now I have something that pleases me visually too.
And in the process I wouldn't be surprised if I've broken something for Windows IE users or what have you. But I'm sure someone will let me know.
For future reference, I'm attaching an image of what it looks like.
I have a Google Alert on “percona”. (And many other things — great way to keep tabs on competitors, what people are saying about you, etc.)
I’ve been seeing increasing amounts of this type of thing:
MySQL server version: 5.0.67-percona-3 CATEGORY QUERY: SELECT wp_term_taxonomy.count as ‘count’, wp_terms.term_id, wp_terms.name, wp_terms.slug, wp_term_taxonomy.parent, wp_term_taxonomy.description FROM wp_terms, wp_term_taxonomy WHERE …
Go to the page in question (sorry, I won’t link it) and you don’t see “percona” anywhere on it. View the source and you do. It’s WordPress debugging output.
I’m glad to see the anecdotal evidence of more and more active use of the Percona server builds, but at the same time, it’s kind of like finding out that your best friend made it onto the Jerry Springer Show. Sometimes I think WordPress makes things too easy for novices.
This is part knowledge share, part appeal: fellow bloggers, I’d comment a lot more on your blogs (and I want to!) if I could. Please, make it easy for me to comment — don’t make me log in (I won’t do it) or moderate me. I’ve found a solution that works really well for me; maybe it’ll help you too.Read the rest of this entry »
