This is what you get for paying

Not that I’m advocating piracy at all, but the recent Ubisoft DRM Fails and the not so recent events that saw people who had bought a legitimate version of Spore downloading and installing cracked versions just to get it to work do make me think….

Advanced Taglines

February 10th, 2009 No comments

I’ve just had some minor problems with the Advanced Taglines Plug-in I use on the site.

Suffice to say, it turned out to be a minor mix of Interface Design Issues, but mostly my own stupid fault for not RTFMing or even checking the page source to see where I was going wrong.

I asked the author about it and he was back in touch with an answer within hours, and he was spot on the money about it being my fault. Excellent support and my greatest thanks to the author.

If you want to add some randomisation to your sites Tagline, then Advanced Tagline by Kevin Morey is well worth the install 😀

FireFox & WordPress

January 15th, 2009 No comments

It turns out one of my (many) firefox plugins is causing wordpress to break in strange ways, namely when trying to edit a post, it reloads the main page inside of one of the iframes and then fails.
More info as it comes.

I tried to be clever. I re-installed WordPress, Disabled all the plugns on the website and all to no avail.

Then I used my brain and tested it in another browser (seamonkey) and found it all working perfectly -fantastic, not a server issue then, but FireFox.

After switching to a different FF profile1 for a little while, I prove it was due to the plugins I was using.

Having finally switched back to my orogional profile, I’ve found everything working fine again. Which is a PITA.

Yeah, so its only a small thing, but it cracked me up.

And I had to go back twice after flooding my kitchen the first time :)

You1 might have noticed the downtime with the server over the last couple of days.

We have been migrating to a new server over the last couple of days, and although it was supposed to be seamless, I fucked up royally.
