CM is upgraded to MT 3.1.2 [pending WordPress 1.3]. I just was getting overwhelmed by spammers. They are a particularly loathsome lot, aren't they? MT Blacklist is integrated within MT, so I went with it. The install was easy enough but something is screwy in the extlib. I think I left some MT 2.6 entrails. Will need to clean.
I will implement TypeKey membership and entry RSS feeds over the next few days. Maybe a "I commented on CM and all I got was this lousy history lesson" sticker can be offered as inticement to register?
Maybe change the graphics etc. around here? any suggestions? any particular fondness for the design style? Any cool images of the Empire?
In keeping with the status quo, The General and The Chosen One met today. My favorite bit:
That wily General. He now represents democracy!
and the comments work?
Sepoy, Your previous graphics were excellent. Please dont do a radical redesign WordPress is the way to go; I just installed a tool called Kitten's Spaminator to tackle comment spam; it seems to be holding up quite well so far.
Don't change the design, but please get an RSS feed.
praktike: rss and xml feeds are available. As well as a comments rss feed. links in the bottom right column or self-discovered in most aggegators.
Spammers are evil. I was having such a terrible time and could not get a Wordpress hack to work right off the bat, so for now--until I have a little time to work with the spam filters--I am moderating comments (which is silly, but better than endless spam).
