Rough Seas Ahead

July 22, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

I'm being self indulgent, but if you like coming here to read, I'm going to be breaking this site A LOT over the coming weeks. I've already been working in earnest to move the entire site off of WordPress. Today the site was "hacked" or at least exposed to some WordPress vulnerability that rewrote the index.php file. I've already tired of the overly-complex nature of WordPress and the related plugins so this is a good excuse to just rip the band-aid off.

Here's what you can expect:

  1. Lots of ugliness
  2. Old comments missing
  3. New comments use Discus
  4. Feed will not refresh for a few days
  5. Linked List titles will not link out
  6. Less ugliness
  7. Feed will get refreshed
  8. Code highlighting returns
  9. Nice typography returns
  10. Linked list posts work again
  11. The standard ugliness that I've grown to accept

Throughout, the site may stop working for a bit. The design will change many times over the next week as I code up new CSS.

Anyway, I've got a bunch of stuff to teach myself still. It should be a lot more fun for me than you. I'll try to quit talking about blogs so much now.
