Site migration

Hey all,

In order to clean up the site infrastructure and address some security and spam issues, we’ve migrated the site to a new (faster) server, and essentially rebuilt the site from the ground up. Some of the plugins used to provide functionality (including the code syntax highlighter) weren’t compatible with the most recent versions . . . → Read More: Site migration

Site software updated 11/23

This is why we can’t have nice things, part 2

On the heels of my previous post This is why we can’t have nice things, we’ve had a another incident with hackers/malicious software.

This is why we can’t have nice things

When the database goes, the site goes. Fortunately, the database is backed up on a . . . → Read More: Database Corruption / Site Issues

PRE tags in comments finally fixed, I think

I think I finally figured out why the PRE tags weren’t rendering in comments — WordPress was stripping them out because they weren’t in the allowed tags list. The reason this was hard to track down is because apparently that list doesn’t apply to me (as an admin).

In any case, I’ve implemented a fix . . . → Read More: PRE tags in comments finally fixed, I think
