Give me GOOD HTML snippets please!

Like many blog owners I have a few HTML snippets linking to other sites. For example, everyone and their dog seems to have their own EC drop page nowadays, and in order to be included on it, they want you to paste up a little banner. Topsites and bloglists also have little banners. It seems . . . → Read More: Give me GOOD HTML snippets please!

fb_xd_fragment Facebook Bugfix

My server suddenly logged a rash of weird requests with something like ?fb_xd_fragment= in the URL. This is not good, because if you try this manually it renders a blank page, and blank pages are BAAAAAAAD! So upon googling I found it’s a bug with new Facebook API and (you guessed it) Internet Exploder. Here . . . → Read More: fb_xd_fragment Facebook Bugfix

Embed this puzzle, please!

I blogged about these jQuery puzzles last spring when I made them but I didn’t make it obvious that you are welcome to embed them in your website FREE.

Disable Akismet = spike in visits

I recently migrated all my blogs to WordPress 3.0. One of the things you do is temporarily disable all plugins including Akismet spam filter.

And don’t get . . . → Read More: Disable Akismet = spike in visits

Please Excuse our mess

I upgraded from my own home brewed wordpress mu to 3.0 RC3 with multi. They implement multi in fundamentally differenent ways than I did, and I needed to also move some other non blog projects on the dorkage domain around. Needless to say, there will be a few glitches and I don’t have huge chunks . . . → Read More: Please Excuse our mess
