New blog stuff, and issues

[MJL20060330: UPDATE: — This is a blog entry about adding Categories to Blogger, and a problem I encountered. Since migrating to WordPress, I no longer need to do these crufty hacks, as this feature is built-in. Compare this post with it’s Blogger original if you’re interested]

I’ve recently added blogging tags to my blog, courtesy of Userscripts.org and Greasemonkey for Firefox.

Unfortunately, it (or the way I’ve put it in my template) appears to have a conflict with Flickr’s BlogThis feature, such that the image citations are hidden when the posting is viewed… not sure what’s causing it or how to fix yet.

So, if you’re the owner of some flickr photo’s that I’ve blogged and wonder where the citations are, then I’m sorry, they get hidden as soon as I tag my post, and I’m working on how to restore them. In the mean-time, clicking the picture does still take viewers to your page, so they can view the actual owner details from there.

?? New template doesn’t work ??

New del.icio.us rolls do not appear at right-hand side of this site, even though they did in Preview? Strange. Maybe it’s a blogger glitch? See what happens in a few days, I suppose…

UPDATE: 2006-03-20 12:45 — Not a glitch. Strange behaviour when I commented the del.icio.us block in the template. It seems that the comment block wasn’t terminated? Odd. Fixed by removing my comments. This is sub-optimal, but works at least.

Blogging on blogging

Well it’s been a little while…

I’ve set up a new blog to trace our new baby’s progress for family and friends who are interstate. It was fun playing with the template, I might try “fixing” this blog’s template also, so the width is not fixed…

Having fun trying to find relevant links in the other blog. Not a lot out there that I could find on fatherhood, which surprised me. Maybe I need to search harder though.
