Site updates happen.

Ok people, while there haven’t been many posts lately, the site has been getting some TLC. Most of it is behind the scenes stuff that I’d like to share with you now.

  • Header images now use the rotator script to display a random image with each page. There are several new header images to rotate. Photo submissions are welcome.
  • We have a fancy new favorites/shortcut icon the Lower Decatur favorite icon. It’s from a photo of the Decatur Street sign.
  • Smart Update pinger plugin installed, so only new articles will ping the blogosphere.
  • There is a fancy Google Map embedded in an iframe using the EzStatic plugin. WiFi, Streetcar stops, and nearby Points of Interest are listed.
  • Mobile users can get their fix here via the WordPress Mobile plugin.
  • Fixed a bug with PHP5 and the wp-cache plugin. Pages should load much faster.
  • Edited some templates so that the author’s name is shown. More authors coming soon.
  • Installed and configured the wpPHPMailer plugin, so that people actually get the password when they register. Our webhost has disabled the php mail() function so this is a good plugin.
  • Uploaded the Obfuscate E-mail plugin, which makes it almost impossible for bots to grab our email addresses and leaves them human readable and with working mailto: links.
  • There is a shiny new “Contact Us” page with scrambled email addresses.
  • Added the FeedBurner plugin so that nifty RSS feed stats are generated. Loving the stats.

One thought on “Site updates happen.”

  1. How did you get wp-phpmailer to work with the latest version of WP and and PHP and MySQL so that it actually sends out emails? I had it working before I upgraded everything to their latest versions.
