my blog isn't not letting me save or publish new entries, or assign categories to entries. What's the deal?

edit: it randomly started letting me publish again. But it's still telling my I don't have permission to add a category.

Uh-oh.

I just tested and I can add categories, but I think some of the permissions are screwed up as it's not considering me a WordPress admin anymore.

I don't know what changed either. Time for investigation...

I may not be able to make comments either. It doesn't seem to be working... unless swansont's comments require approval or something.

I think the default is that the first comment requires approval and after that you're good to go (unless you link to more than two URLs). But I would have expected an "awaiting moderation" notice to appear; I've seen those in other blogs.

FYI for ecoli and anybody doing science, but especially biology/medicine in their blogs:

Science web carnival, Tangled bank
http://tangledbank.net/
"The subject should be on biology, medicine, or natural history. We will define those categories very broadly, and it's sufficient that you show some passion for the science of the natural world."

You just submit a blog entry by email, and they link to it at somebody's blog. You could even host the Tangled bank, and get lots of traffic going to your own blog.

I submitted No Sweat and it was added for Tangled Bank #98

There is also the skeptic's circle blog carnival for skepticism blogs. http://blogcarnival....c/cprof_19.html

ecoli: You might try logging out of sfn and back in. The two systems share the same cookie, so maybe that has something to do with it. It looks like you posted today, is everything sorted out now?

Has anyone else been having trouble?

Swanson, any idea how to go about hosting a tangled bank?

I think we may soon be adding a statistics module that lets you track your blog's stats (visitors, etc.) I need to check out how much it's going to tax the server first.

It looks like they got a few more hosts lined up after the above plea.

Here's mine...http://blogs.scienceforums.net/Snail

I'm yet to add some content, (hopefully today) but the blog will be mainly physics based (including anything I think will be useful for others, as I work through my degree), new discoveries in science, and bad science. I'm also going to have a category with links to scientific articles in the press, where comments will be strongly encouraged. :)

Other than that, random thoughts, anything that catches my eye, general bloggy stuff...just to add, I am a weblog virgin :embarass:

Please note that the blogs have now been upgraded to the latest version of WordPress, meaning there are a few new features -- tags, for one. (Tags are kinda like categories, but you don't have to create them beforehand, and you can sprinkle them liberally on posts.)

If you spot any problems caused by this upgrade please post them here so I can take a look.

The Logout link doesn't seem to work from within the blogs. I get a vBulletin Message which says:

An error occurred while attempting to log you out. Click here to log out.

Well, the login is linked to SFN... if you go to the blogs from SFN, or if you sign into SFN and then go to the blog, you'll be signed in.

Perhaps if you log out of SFN, you'll also be logged out of wordpress?

Another problem... can we not ping?

http://technorati.co.../wordpress.html
Pinging to technorati could help increase our web traffic, by keeping technorati up to date with our posts...

However, There is no "update services" option in Wordpress. Is this broken because our Wordpress is linked to SFN, or is it a problem with the Wordpress software itself?

Blast. It's vB's way of preventing people from providing links on the forum that'll log you out -- you have to have a logout "hash" in the URL to the login page to make it work. I need to figure out how that works.

Is there any way to view all new blog posts?

The SFN home page has the last five, and there's an RSS feed of the last 20.

WordPress MU doesn't let you customize that option. I looked in the main admin screen and it appears WordPress pings ping-o-matic automatically anyway.

Anemicpsycho is spamming the blogs. Everyone should enable the plugin.

For those that don't know, click Plugins on top and enable Spam Karma 2. WordPress comments are popular venues for spammers.

Quoted for emphasis. Alternately, turn on comment moderation.
