Announcement emails?

Could we do something so people could subscribe to a "New Version" notification? Sometimes, as it was my case, one may go a few weeks/months without checking the forums. During that time a new version may be made available which fixes security vulnerabilities. Do we have anything like this already? ...

Format for comments. Configurable?

I got my first comment on a blog entry, but the person wrote to me saying that the blog changed the formatting. He had multiple lines and the blog changed it all to a single line as if it was interpreting HTML. http://adminlibre.com/index.php?/archives/3-Using-Diff-and-Patch-in-FreeBSD.html#comments...

Re: Anti spam plugin option: Check trackback/pingback URLs

Probably the best recommendation for spam protection in S9y is the spamblock/bayes plugin. So the Akismet option in the Anti spam plugin is not very effective? Are anti-spam plugins stackable or do I need to pick only one? I like many of the options in the "Spam Protector" (the one with nothing els...

Re: Plugins documentation

You mean the internal plugin that comes with s9y, I assume? Not sure if it is "internal". When I wrote Feedburner plugin I am referring to the one by Aaron Axelsen, listed in Spartacus as "Feedburner Sidebar" To display a Feedburner feed in the syndication options at the sidebar? That is the "Syndi...

Re: Plugins documentation

Frankly, we simply don't have the manpower to handle proper documentation. How may I help? And I don't mean.. what to write on.. I already see several things I can write/edit/improve.. I literally mean "What is the process to edit existing documentation and to submit new?". You should see that info...

Re: Invalid feed?

A few of the issues seem to have been settings. Still a couple remain. Does this link work? http://adminlibre.com/index.php?/feeds/index.rss2 According to feedburner that is supposed to be the original feed. The xml gif and the width were configuration errors. Had to put a full URL instead of img/xm...

Invalid feed?

Started my blog (http://adminlibre.com) today and I using the "Syndicate This Blog" plugin to publish my RSS feed through feedburner. I noticed problems with my feed because google reader was not showing my first article. After digging around I found what may be a bug/problem. It seems the "Syndicat...

Re: Entry Body vs Extended Body

I figured it out.. Given that it is a new blog.. it was easy just to publish and check.. It's not like anyone was going to sneak in while I was testing and see a bad looking article... One can only wish new subscribers/visitors would show up so easily... I still think it would be a good idea to upda...

Plugins documentation

Looking at the technical documentation link at http://www.s9y.org/40.html, I am not seeing any obvious link about plugins. I am looking to learn how to fix/edit a plugin. Also where is the author of a plugin listed? Or are all plugins submited to s9y and then there is a group of people who manage pl...

Entry Body vs Extended Body

I think I understand the concepts, but there is one part I am unclear. When someone chooses to see the extended body, does the Entry Body still shows? Is the extended body a continuation of the entry body or do I need to have the content of the entry body also in the extended body.. Perhaps this inf...

Re: Anti spam plugin option: Check trackback/pingback URLs

I am sure it won't, but I believe in having layers. With so many unsecured easy targets out there, the harder I can make my blog to be exploited the more likely the spambot/newbie spammer will move on to another blog. :mrgreen:

Anti spam plugin option: Check trackback/pingback URLs

The description of the option is: Only allow trackbacks/pingbacks, when its URL contains a link to your blog This is my first blog so I am not sure if it is common etiquette to always have a link to an article or not. My feeling is that one probably only want to allow trackbacks/pingbacks if they po...

Re: Serendipity and Ubuntu

i tried to install it and it works but when i lunched the application. What is the URL of your blog? From the little you wrote it sounds as if you were able to run the install script, but could not access the blog. That sounds consistent with giving the blog a URL on it's setting and then not havin...
