SFN Blogs Opened

Hm, no. Honestly I've never gotten previewing to work on my blog, so I'm not sure what's wrong.

 

I did turn on the object cache this morning, but that shouldn't do anything...

Curses. Bug in WordPress's memcached backend, I think. As soon as I disabled it, your blog works again.

 

So much for that idea.

I created a blog at

http://blogs.scienceforums.net/BillAngel/

 

I had no problem doing that.

 

What I would like to do is add entries to my blog from my Android phone.

 

I downloaded an app from google play that interfaces with WordPress blogs.

But the app has problems logging into my blog. It thinks my username and password are not valid. :'(

Anyone have any knowledge concerning interfacing the SFN blog to Android devices?

Thanks.

I don't think there's an easy way to do that through an app, since we've modified the login system to use your account on SFN instead of WordPress accounts.

 

I might be able to give you a separate WordPress account which can post to your blog, if you'd like.

My "incoming links" stopped updating some time ago, and I notice that on Google blog search there's nothing recent listed. Doing the link search on the main Google site shows more recent links, but the blog admin software wants an rss feed, and I don't know how to do that.

 

I've poked around the web and others have similar problems, but none of the solutions offered have worked for me.

 

Any clues?

Not sure what "incoming links" you're referring to; if you point to some of the other sites you've found, I might be able to work it out.

I guess we ought to integrate that better.

There's an "incoming links" widget in the dashboard.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Dashboard_Screen#Incoming_Links

 

It queries Google blog search, but that's not giving any new links.

It also appears that wordpress is out of date. Version 3.5.1 is the latest stable release.

So I wanted to copy/paste my new year's greeting from by blog into twitter, and saw this

 

Happy return to an arbitrarily chosen starting point in the orbit about our gravitational enslaver - See more at: http://blogs.scienceforums.net/swansont/archives/date/2013/01/page/3#sthash.GyrDZrAC.dpuf

 

which AFAIK is the result of some douchey part of analytics/sharingsoftware. As a blogger, I loathe this when I see it in sites and hate that it's running on mine. Turns out it's from the sharethis widget. It can be fixed by adding some text to the widget options section in the settings for sharethis

 

in the publisher text section,

 

 

stLight.options({publisher:'wp.ee55be32-f15b-457a-9deb-7f9c0e86f265'})

 

add the following

 

, doNotHash:true, doNotCopy:true,hashAddressBar:false

 

at the end, but before the end bracket and parenthesis
