From root login to <tags>: What’s Next?

Here is a preview of the articles I will be releasing in the coming weeks, not in any particular order since some I’ve probably been working on for at least a year now. Bear with me as you read through the list you’ll see the gamut which it covers is a vast array of information that spans programatic continents, but it’s time. All of these topics, and most of the examples I’ll be taking come right out of the documentation for each subject, so it’s all publicly available, I will just be wrapping them up in a nice bow. If you’d like to see something sooner than later, let me know.

Changed Servers

If you’ve been experiencing weird behavior with the site lately…

So I had my hosting provider switch me over to a much better .NET  server setup this weekend. So all of my sites went through a nameservers change. The hosting company will concurrently run both servers for two weeks just in case not ALL the nameservers are updated… or if I had forgot to grab something from the old servers. It should all be propagating and for the most part not cause any problems….

I also had fun times with WordPress earlier… I thought I’d get fresh and drop in the shortcut icon into the index.php file… lo and behold those changes get carried across into the rss feed… and cause it to not be well formed xml. Digging up through the wordpress docs it’s pretty nicely documented.
