Hello Planet LCA2008!

Hello!

This would be my customary welcome/test post for Planet linux.conf.au 2008, and if this shows up there, then it would indicate that everything is working as planned, in which case: Hello to you all!

In relation to setup, it appears that getting PyBlosxom‘s Tags Plugin to output an RSS feed is slightly more trouble than it’s worth: the plugin doesn’t obey the URL extension as an indication of the output flavour, and instead places it on the end of the tag (so in this case, searching for a tag lca2008.rss20), so instead the less-desirable “flav” querystring is necessary. I suspect that this is one to fix on a rainy day.

I look forward to seeing everyone here at LCA: it should be excellent (I hope).

Blog Upgrade

Well I’ve finally bit the bullet, and have installed PyBlosxom 1.4.2 onto my web site. There’s some internal improvements that nobody here is likely to see in relation to that; however, I’ve also installed some new plugins, including Akismet Comments, a spam filter that should hopefully ward off spammers, without requiring you to type “what” in every time you want to make a comment.

Also installed is support for tagging of posts, which you should see me do more often now.

Enjoy! (I know I will :))
