Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.5.1 is out! it fixes some gnarly bugs around $posts; on the post editing page, it switches the sea of tag links for a dropdown once there are more than 50 tags; and will let you have a local tag cosmos without futzing about with .htaccess files and rewrite rules.

(Not so much with configurable colours at this stage… tomorrow, perhaps!)

Also: where did gravatars get to?

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.5

Ultimate tag warrior 2.5 is out! however, UTW now has it’s very own home at http://www.neato.co.nz/ultimate-tag-warrior where the juicy details will be posted for this, and other versions.

[Brief overview: 2.5 has big changes to the admin side of things; allows tag clouds; will render a long-tail graph for your tags; ought to behave in not-in-the-siteroot blogs; will clean up duplicate tags; can turn categories into tags; and anything else that I’ve forgotten]

I’ll continue to make announcements in the main part of my blog, though (:

On this day.. Nothing happened

Sudoku stole my evening; so nothing new on the Ultimate Tag Warrior front.

Tomorrow, however; I’m going to change the “baseurl” for tags to just be a directory name; and wedge the siteurl in front, and I’m going to re-instigate the tag cloud (or heat map) (or whatever they’re calling it this week).. once I figure out how to wrangle the formatting side of it. I might just see about extending the docs a little more (:

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.0

Okay. I’m somewhat happy with UTW2 now. I’m pretty sure it’s not going to steal your lunchmoney, or anything of that nature, at least.

Something to be aware of, is that even if you have installed a previous version of ultimate tag warrior, you’ll need to visit the installation page; because there are a couple of options which get added. Your head will explode if you forget this! (it probably won’t). By default, the plugin will append links to technorati tag pages at the end of your content; you might not need this, but it’s useful-ish as a starting point if you haven’t used UTW before.

Also, there are now what seems to be two plugins: 1.3 legacy and 2.0. 1.3 Legacy contains all of the functions that the 1.1.2 had, so that everything keeps working; and 2.0 is a cleanslate version which only has functions that use the fancy formatting stuff.

You can also specify the base directory for tags, which is pretty awesome (but I think the admin side will implode if it’s not in the root..)

There’s a readme with instructions for installing in the zip file; and there’s a helpfile in there somewhere which lists out the functions and some stuff for simplified formatting (you can say “commalist” is the kind of formatting, and it dutifully formats it like that; rather than having to wrangle formatting bits directly)

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.0 go crazy with that thang.

New Look, again!

I’ve been tinkering with a shiny new theme for my blarg blog. Isn’t it charming?

I’ve also dropped in a thinger for displaying gravatars beside comments. It seems to work so far, which is a nice suprise.

Curiously, I haven’t dropped in any of the tagging stuff yet; but I figured I should wait until I’ve finished ironing out the wrinkles and making the plugin much easier to use.

Sing out if I managed to break anything too badly (:
