I made a couple of changes to my main uber-blog today:
- It is now easier/faster/less irritating to subscribe to receive posts by email. If you have a user account on my blog, you can set it up to receive the full text of posts, and/or to subscribe only to specific categories of posts.
- You can now create a user account here on my blog without my intervention. This allows you to receive my posts by email, and let the system remember you for posting comments, etc. Previously, you could only create a user account with my intervention. This was due to an exploitable bug in WordPress which has long since been resolved.
- I recently enabled OpenID on my blog to allow you to use your credentials from LiveJournal and other places when posting comments. I haven’t yet tested the OpenID stuff with the subscription stuff; if anyone wants to set up a subscriber user with OpenID and let me know how it goes, I’d be interested to hear.
I am still working on a streamlined “RSS feed by category” option. I know it’s currently a bit of a pain to receive every category when you subscribe to my feeds, particularly lately when so many have been the “cross-posted from the other blog” musings. In truth, though, you can add “/feed” to the end of any category URL and get the RSS feed for that category– I just have to set that up in a way that’s easy for you all to subscribe.
Anyway, that’s all for right now. I’d better get going– we leave in an hour to go to Niagara Falls for the 4-hour tour!
