Blog Engine Update

After a bit of turbulence, it looks like we are up and running on the new blog engine.  I am really happy about this – as it makes it a lot easier for me to customize the look and feel of the blog without having to hack things up too much.

For the time being – things should look pretty much the same as they use to – but there are some changes that I should point out:

  • To comment on a blog post – you need to click on the post title, then you will see the comment section at the bottom
  • To access files that are attached to a post – you also need to click on the post title
  • If you look closely at the top of my blog posts you will see some new options:


    The two icons on the left let you choose between viewing full posts on my main page, or just viewing excerpts.  “Most Recent”, “Most Views” and “Most Comments” allow you to change the way posts are sorted.

I have also used the blog engine change as an opportunity to enable comments on all my posts (comments used to get disabled after 90 days).  I have done this because readers of my blog seem to be genuinely nice people who help each other out in the comments Smile

Finally – we are now using Windows Live ID to sign in for the blogs, but you can also make anonymous comments if you want to.
