  • “Fun” with Gallery 1.5.3, 1.5.10, 2, 3RC1; Leahpeah photos
    I mentioned moving Leah over to WordPress a few days ago, and that went well. I’ve been migrating over her prior content and deleting unused content a bit since then. In rooting through the site, I came across this: … which we put in place when there were folks deeplinking some larger images on her…
  • Blogger FTP Migration Tool: Does not account for your images
    Blogger has done work to create a migration tool for Blogger FTP users and is doing great communication. You can move to a blogspot blog, (which you could do before) or change from self-hosting to being hosted by Blogger/Google by changing the DNS to point at Google’s servers. This is similar to how tumblr handles…

  • Fussy.org To WordPress
    The inestimable, very funny Eden Kennedy was also stuck with Blogger. So she and her over 1200 posts and 15000 comments (!) were stuck on Blogger without FTP. I’m proud to announce that in the main, things are moved over and working anew. I’ve done the redirects for old archives, though there are some custom…

  • Blog Migration, Lura.net
    Speaking of blog migrations from Blogger to WordPress, here’s a successful one: Initially Lura was hosted under Windows and IIS. PHP was installed on her former server, but it did not really respond appropriately and the various IIS/WordPress/”mod_rewrite” hacks did not seem to work. So I advised her to move to PHP/Apache. Things went pretty…

  • Migrating an old Blogger blog to WordPress
    I’m an expert now at migrating old Blogger Blogs. Google, the owner of Blogger, has decided to shut off FTP posting, which has left many people stranded. They could have improved their algorithms, instead, things are shut off. I am now a reluctant expert at migrating Blogger blogs to WordPress. If you have a more…

    Paul M Bowers
    In this post from 8 years ago, I mention Paul M Bowers, a photographer that was around the corner from us at AVENCOM in San Diego. He took many of our photos. I thought I’d check out his site, http://www.paulmbowers.com/, and see how it had changed. I’m actually sort of delighted that it is the…

  • Enact Partners Website Refurbish
    I did a bit of website work for Enact Partners, and these changes are now live. I did a basic refurbishment of their site with an emphasis on making it more visible in search engines. The technical problem was that all of the text of the site was hidden as images. Without “alt” attributes an…
  • NC JavaScript & jQuery Camp
    I had a lot of fun at Durham’s “NC JavaScript & jQuery Camp” today. Lots of driving, but even more learning and connection-making. I was particularly happy to create my first <canvas> drawing from watching @miketaylr‘s slides on HTML5. Here’s the source: <html> <head> <script> window.onload = function() { var ctx = document.querySelector('#c').getContext('2d'); ctx.lineWidth =…

  • WordPress Graphical Post Count Visualization
    I’m playing with a new theme for my blog, and wanted a better way to let people quickly scan for how many posts I had. So I used a background image of black, offset with background-position in css to let a graph “show through” to show the count. I’ve also posted the PHP and CSS…

  • Stack Overflow Reputation
    It’s been about a year since I have been on Stack Overflow. Stack Overflow is a site for computer programmers of all skill levels to ask and answer questions. It works pretty great, and I have gotten some good answers there. Stack Overflow uses a point system to measure reputation as a number. It also…
