Re: Error adding media

Glad you fixed it. In case someone else is interested: the error actually occurred while Serendipity tried to make a thumbnail for the uploaded image. At 416K compressed, the image could actually be several megabytes uncompressed. It needs to be uncompressed to make the thumbnail. Increasing the mem...

Re: Getting 8bitboy to work

...and I just fixed the relative directory problem by setting base="/progress/media/8bitboy" in my embed tag. W00t! My root directory is clean, and it works from everywhere!

Re: Getting 8bitboy to work

Okay, I've got it embedded in my sidebar and in an entry. It seems to work fine for me. I created a new directory in my media library and uploaded the files to there. (I didn't feel like cluttering my root directory any more.) Unfortunately, the XML config file must be in the current directory , so ...

Re: Getting 8bitboy to work

I used to own an Amiga. I'm trying to get 8bitboy to work, now.

Unfortunately, the website is short on details. How does it look up its parameters?

Re: Suggest entries + karma modifcations

We actually didn't use any Javascript in the Karma plugin. I wrote an article explaining the new graphical rating bar capability and an article on using CSS for rating bars . The Karma plugin is difficult to understand. You should have seen it before we got to it! Don and I thought throwing Javascri...

Re: Can I remove dategroups from bulletproof?

What onli said. Everything has to be done in blocks; you can't have blocks that overlap, only blocks that are completely enclosed in other blocks. In any case, we still want to iterate through the dategroup items; we just don't want them styled or marked as a group. Essentially, we want each entry e...

Re: Properties/Templates of categories with >1 categories

This is because the authors are not associated with categories anywhere. The categorytemplates plugin checks the URL. It's not a category page, so it check for a single-entry / detailed view page. It's a summary page, so the plugin gives up and uses the default template. It could be modified to look...

Re: static start page & contact form

I finally had the opportunity to test Judebert's revision - it works fine. For the record, the contact form plugin must be listed before the static page plugin in the event queue. Must? When I tested, everything still worked regardless of which plugin was first. There is a difference in output, tho...

Perhaps the obvious question: Are your blog and your database both using UTF-8?

Re: static start page & contact form

Well, that was easier than expected. The contact form plugin was stomping on the [subpage] item. As a result, the static page plugin wouldn't realize it was supposed to do anything unless it came before the contact form plugin. I made the contact form put back the subpage if it wasn't actually selec...

Re: static start page & contact form

Hey, Don... remember when I was having trouble getting static pages to work at all? How we tried making a new static page that was marked as the front page from the start, but that didn't work either? Yeah, it's because the Contact Form plugin was before the static page plugin. Hang around on this f...

Re: static start page & contact form

Uh... nobody here but us chickens. Got a URL where we can see the problem? Never mind, I'll try it out on my sandbox and let you know what I find. It sounds like submitting the contact form redirects you to the front page, so the static page is displayed. That makes perfect sense to me; once you've ...

Re: second URL

It's a bit odd that the s9y .htaccess rules are in your root directory. The "Redirect 301" rules I can understand: those were probably hand coded to replace plain HTML pages. The ErrorDocument and DirectoryIndex make sense, too. But all those RewriteRules really belong in /s9y/.htaccess. T...
