Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.8.8

Just a few little bug fixes in this version (:

(The issue with new posts in wordpress 1.6/2b has been fixed; along with an odd bug that Bill found with 404s and a weird plugin interaction; and it adds the core functionality needed for the experimental search)

Update: Tag Search thingy! Download the tag search page; add it to your theme (and make changes as necesary… uh; if you have UTW installed in a different place, you’ll need to tweak the ajax url.. this is just an example!!! (: ); Create a new page, and use the Tag Search page template.

The tag search thing does depend on using version 2.8.8 of UTW.


I made camembert (:

The rind is a bit manky; but the cheese on the inside tastes (and, more importantly, smells) okay. Although next time, I’m going to use different salt on the outside (I used sea salt, that I had to manually grind with the blue cheese which was a PITA; so I used ordinary iodized table salt on this.) – it has a bit of a bitter aftertaste which the salt also has.

If I die in the night; and you’re cleaning up the fridge, don’t eat the cheese (:

Finding Posts via Tags

Searching using tags has been on my list of things to do for a while now. I’ve been playing with some things; and I’ve put together an experimental grade search via tags. It lives here.

It works well with small tag sets (collections of, say, 100 tags or less); but starts getting a bit unwieldy with larger sets (like.. err.. mine (: I have about 350 tags on my posts).

Basically; you click on the names of tags, and a list of posts that match any of the tags is retrieved. If you click on the name of a tag a second time, then it’s removed from the list of tags and the results are updated. It uses fandangled AJAX stuff so it feels shinier than the ye olde way of doing things.

Anywho, let me know how useful you think this is on the scale of “Meh” being Meh to “OMGZ I want one” being not-Meh. Eleven is.. uh.. better than cheese.
