No ScribeFire for now… oh, wait!

In Upgrading fun (well…) I mentioned how glad I was having found ScribeFire and getting it to work not only with MyOpera but also with this blog (via the Metaweblog API). Earlier this week, while going through my present and possible new extensions for Firefox, upgrading and adding things, I also upgraded ScribeFire from version 3.1.5 to 3.1.6 — and suddenly ScribeFire started complaining about a "malformed response" from this blog (while happily retrieving all posts from my MyOpera blog)…

Upgrading fun (well…)

comparing adminhandler versions side-by-sideWhen I selected Habari as a blogging platform, I knew I was in for an occasional rocky ride, with the software at version 0.5 and under very active development.

But now I've done it again…

Keeping a low profile

I did a few more tweaks today, to two other plugins I use: Summary and Tag cloud. That took some spelunking in Habari's core code (and these plugins) to investigate how forms are built and modified, how content is added to a feed, and how to make the tag list sorted case-insensitive. That turned out to be quite instructive…

Syntax highlighting with GeSHi

Since this blog's main subject is development it's unavoidable I'll show snippets of code in my posts. And I like my code to be syntax-highlighted, so it's natural that I noticed and downloaded the GeSHi plugin for Habari before I even installed it: I considered it that much of an essential part of my blogging toolbox. …
