I upgraded to 0.7rc-1 and it no longer displays future entries.

I believe future posting is one of the new features added in 0.7.

As for displaying a different time than in the server, it's been asked before. I don't think there's a easy solution (other than ignoring the difference :))

I agree with Garvin that a guest book should not be part of a blog. Instead of a plugin, I'd suggest using s9y in embedded mode, and have links to different parts of your site using a navigation bar. One of the links would be to a guest book. Then you could also have links to gallery, cv, ....

Even easier to use serendipity_fetchEntries(). :)

Didn't even know that exists! Doesn't that confirm you don't need to really know the s9y code base to write plugins :p

Speaking of nuggets.. is it possible to "include" the contents of an item (such as the "announcement" I want to make sticky), and just one item, in a nugget? I'd suggest try writing a plugin for that. It's really easy even if you don't know PHP and SQL. (As long as you can program). It's very simpl...

Could not connect to database; check your settings. The mySQL error was: Access denied for user: 'ragamuff@localhost' (Using password: YES) That simply means s9y can't login to the database with the username and password combination you supplied. Try changing to Database user = aragamu_ragamuff

By "create an emty file called .htaccess" do you mean an empty text file? Does it matter as long as there is something call .htaccess to be re-written over? So, for example, could I create a text file and then delete the extension? (I am working on Windows). Would that work? yes by "ftp it over to ...

I just checked my installation, and the .htaccess is owned by me, which means I must have added it myself. Do you have shell access to the server? If not, create an emty file called .htaccess, and ftp it over to $(S9Y_ROOT). The permission only has to be 666, not 777 (as it's to be written over, not...

Maybe you are thinking of a wiki :lol:
Anyway, you can give some of your trusted readers logins.
Also, readers can comment on your blog entries.

chmod go+rwx /home/.ebanwasher/jetgirl/jetgirl.net/aitd/
means changing the permission of the directory aitd.

To write to .htaccess , you would also need to do chmod 666 .htaccess. If the file doesn't exist, then don't worry about it. I think serendipity will create it for you.

He's running 3.22.32. By the way, the SQL query works for me (mysql 4.0.20), but I'm not sure the result is correct (I got no rows returned). What does the SELECT e.id, e.author, a.username, a.email, .. mean? I thought you need to refer to them with full table names, like s9y_entries.id, s9y_entries...

Todo list and show archives by categories plugins

I've written a couple of plugins for s9y, with project logs in mind. 1. The todo list plugin shows a list of entries from a todo category and a done category, with the done entries crossed out. 2. The display archived entries by category plugin shows a certain number of entries in a chosen category....

I don't have my own server, so I don't know if it has a www user. But I notice that the files that s9y creates (eg archives, serendipity_local_config_inc.php) have owner nobody in my webhost. By the way, you can't change the owner of files unless you are root. I just change all my files to 644 (rw-r...

Actually, I like how it is syndicated now. If someone has a very long entry, I don't want to get a news feed of the whole article, but only the teaser the blogger thought important enough to put on the front page. The continue link is displayed at the end, so it isn't a problem to find the rest of t...

I have a copy of my changes in my own machine I only have ftp access to my host. After I ftp the new version of s9y over, I then ftp my changes. I usually do a diff first to see if there are major changes between the versions tho, just to be on the safe side. As for the templates, I found that the u...
