Boring Website Stuff Made Exciting With Exclamation Points

Finally switched over to my new host. Finally got all of my data over to said new host. New host restored WordPress databases! Love new host to death so far. DNS propagation went smoothly, yay! Upgrade to WordPress 2.5 went smoothly, yay! The WP future post function now finally woks for the first time evar, yay, yay, yay! Put in a bunch of new plugins so I can pretend to be as awesome as Mary Robinette, yay! Completely forgot that the crossposter doesn’t work with WP 2.5, boo. So no one on LJ saw this post from yesterday, boo. This will be my first test of the upgrade, yay! My comments now have avatars, yay! I decided to upload my own avatars for that, so went with people of color from SF TV shows and movies. I think I got everyone from the TV shows I watch, and I have Will Smith + some Matrix people. But I need more! Suggestions? In the comments, yay! Which can now be threaded, yay! WordPress is awesome, yay!

divider with ancient egyptian scarab I'm writing an Afrofuturist novel set in a matriarchal ancient Egypt where queer women of color rule the sand and sky. Want to know more? Read about it here. Want to help make it happen? Become my patron (& get free fiction)!

  1. Old host: amhosting.com

    New host: Lunarpages! I think I have an affiliate link or something somewhere around here, but I can’t find it.

  2. Boo for crossposter not working! Though my own wordpress is a ghost town, so it doesn’t really matter for me) anyway.

    Is there a place I can view your avatars? I want to see what you’ve got before I start makign suggestions all willy-nilly.

  3. Thanks Jeremy :)

    Laya, you should be able to see them all here. I’d love to get about 100 so I can restrict some to frequent commenters.

  4. Did you get the crossposter sorted out? The developer seems to have abandoned it, but the Google discussion is full of solutions to the minor problem that 2.5 introduced.

  5. eek, is there a problem with 2.5? I haven’t encountered it yet. All I know is that it crossposted ;)

  6. Yeah, the plugin references a file that was removed in 2.5 — but if you upgraded by copying the new files without deleting the old ones (as I usually do) you won’t notice the problem.
