Gutenberg is here and I have no idea how some of the new features work, so let’s see what they look like when you add them to a post. This first block of text is the default block – a
OK, so who’s idea was it to release the new version of WordPress this close to Christmas? WordPress 5.0 is the first major change in the blogging tool for what seems decades. They’ve introduced a new post editing tool called
I love taking photos and I also like to blog, so each photo I take for my 365 subsequently gets stuck up as a post on my site. This is what it currently looks like.
I’m using a nifty free theme called Cubic. I love the grid display and the general simplicity of the site layout. It doesn’t always work the way I want, but I don’t know enough about web design to really change it very much. I tend to make small improvements over a long period.
Last year I totally neglected the blog and nearly got four whole months behind on my post schedule. I could have just canned it, but instead I decided to go through each photo, add a description and subsequently blog it (with the correct date). It took me a while but I eventually caught up.

If you’re using a self-hosted blog running WordPress and you haven’t upgraded for a while I would highly recommend upgrading. From the official WordPress blog (by Matt): A stitch in time saves nine. I couldn’t sew my way out of
I’m currently having a few problems with my admin backend (not a euphemism) caused by my preferred theme. Something broke along the way to WordPress 2.8.2 and it’s the Woothemes-written theme that’s causing some problems on the create post page.
My quest for a blog theme continues. This time I’m trying out Irresistible by Woo Themes, a rather nice free theme with lots of options.
This includes something that I’ve been after for a while: a lifestream. It’s not that my life is particularly exciting or anything, it’s just that I’ve been wanting to incorporate a feed of my various internet-related activities into one place, and now I have one.
Women told: ‘You have dishonoured your family, please kill yourself’ When Elif’s father told her she had to kill herself in order to spare him from a prison sentence for her murder, she considered it long and hard. “I loved

I’ve just upgraded to the new minor version of WordPress (2.7.1). I had a couple of problems that required me to deactivate the Automatic Upgrade plugin (perhaps I should just remove that now considering that the core has the ability
I’m sat here on my sofa with my iPhone tapping away on the little touch screen to see how easy, or usable, it is as a blogging tool. There are several limitations. There’s no copy and paste, so linking is
