Entry 0089

Just finished up a bit of minor site tweaking, made a few changes to the general design (subtle changes, mostly coloring and font size) and added something I think is pretty spiffy: Avatar Support!

That’s right – if you post in the comments, you’ll be able to have your own avatar show up, thanks to… Well, I guess WordPress (the backend for my blog) and Gravatar (the guys who provide the back end for the avatars) merging. Basically, it’s something that was added into the 2.6 update, and I figured I’d go ahead and implement it. You don’t have to sign up or use it – mostly I just wanted to give another option to the three or four people who read and occasionally reply to my stuff.

Also of note: The built-in image gallery seems to be broken, so I’m going to continue hosting my images on my .Mac MobileMe account for the foreseeable future. I figure I’m paying for the service, and the media management there is a hell of a lot better than it is with the tools built into WordPress. So, for those of you who don’t like having to click away, I’m sorry but that’s just how things go.

Other than that, not much else to report at the moment. I should be sleeping right now, but I’m not – mainly because I’m just not all that tired. Maybe later I will be, but as yet not so much.

Here’s hoping!

Update
I’m a bit of an idiot: Turns out I had user registration turned off! Not that you need to register to comment (or have an avatar), but I figured I’d pop it back on just in case. Not sure why I had it turned off… I should maybe start making notes, possibly posting them somewhere I can find them easily later.
