For those few who read my RSS feed, I have moved it to /xml/index.xml and /xml/full.xml. I was doing some neatening of my code and files last night. However, I realized this morning that this would cause problems for those who have already put the feed in their news readers, so I added a symlink in the old location for the meantime. Please update your news readers. 🙂
Since I don’t have a house or my own tree, I’ve decorated my web site for the holiday. Merry Christmas and enjoy!
Well, it’s been a long night, but I have my site updated at my new host, and I even managed to implement the pseudo-template idea I’d had in mind. I used PHP variables and includes to control how the header and footer files turn out, but it’s not really templating since I still have a PHP file for each page on my site. However, it’s much easier to update, since each page is just a set of variables, an included header, the content, and the footer. For most changes, except the most drastic, I shouldn’t have to change anything but the header and footer files. I thought about doing a real templating system, but frankly, the ones out there confused me, and I don’t feel that I have the time to understand them. Dynamic pages also produce ugly URLs unless one uses something like mod_rewrite, and I definitely don’t have the time for that.
Maybe once I’m out of school (she says for the 42 millionth time).
Now it’s way past my bedtime, and I have homework to do tomorrow, so off to dreamland for me!
If you can see this, my hosting move has been successful. I am now located at BlogOMania.
Whee, e-mail is going out now! Probably not many want to read it, but it’s working!
Added a new XML file to use for the subscription service with full text entries.
So, I just changed my site all around… again. I hope all the links still work. I still have some stylesheet tweaking to do, but that will have to wait, because I’m bloody tired.
Yay, I finally got Movable Type set up! I’ll worry about the template tomorrow.
