I am in the process of replacing my image viewer. It has a few bugs at the moment…so bear with me as I fix it.

Thanks!

–Update–

Looks like it’s just a problem for people using Safari. I will have the issue fixed soon.

Heart rending cuteness

Or something…

<geekiness>

Today I upgraded my WordPress (the open source CMS that powers my blog) from version 2.3 to version 2.5. I won’t go into the geeky details about what came with it, but I will say that its new media management works very well and allows me to easily upload pictures without using a plugin to customize things. Thumbnails for my pictures will now be a little bit larger…but that’s not really a big deal.

Overall I am very pleased with the improvements that they made to the admin interface and general architecture of WordPress.

UPDATE: I also was digging through the settings to see if there had been any additions, and I found that I can adjust the default image thumbnail size. :) So now things are amazing.

I just preformed a decent overhaul of my site…but if it all worked smoothly, you shouldn’t notice many differences.

Here’s the gist of it, for the geeks who care:

  • Migrated site from my old host (IX Web Hosting) to my new host (Nearly Free Speech). This should increase performance on several levels. Faster page load speeds will be the most noticeable.
  • WordPress upgrade from 2.1 to 2.3.3
  • Updated my permalink structure from the default “Jordanogren.com/?p=123″ style to use just post names instead. Like this: “jordanogren.com/my-example-post”
  • Removed RSS .92 and Atom feeds, and ditched Feedburner. Exclusively using RSS 2.0 now.
  • Upgrade my Google Analytics scripts from urchin to pageTracker.
  • Swaped out my UltimateTagWarrior plugin for some other plugins, because WordPress 2.3 supports tagging natively.
  • Upgraded Askimet to version 2.1.4
  • Made minor tweaks to my site’s theme. Mainly to the way archive and tag pages worked.

Everything appears to be working better than ever, so I will assume I didn’t make any mistakes.

IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY SUBSCRIBED TO MY SITE VIA RSS USING THE URL “http://feeds.feedburner.com/jordanogren/
PLEASE CHANGE IT TO THE URL “http://www.jordanogren.com/feed/“.
Feedburner is redirecting the feed for 30 days, after that your toast.

If you notice anything strange, let me know, and I’ll fix it.
