Open Thread (First Try)

Filed under: — Kate @ 3:13 pm EST

This is a test to see how the “page” function of WordPress works. I’m hoping to have a spot for random comments that anyone can write.

    Further testing….

  2. Holz Says:

    I finally got around to listening to your Arcade Fire radio blog… sadly I was unimpressed. Just wasn’t for me.

  3. Edo Says:

    Hey Holz -
    I fixed the problem with the copy/pasting on this blog in IE. Let me know if you run into other problems.
    To anyone out there, I would really appreciate any feedback on quirks or problems you may have in displaying this site, so that Kate and I can troubleshoot it.


  4. Kate Says:

    So sorry you didn’t like them, Holz. :-( I get that they aren’t for everyone, though. Oh well. I’ll be changing the music again pretty soon.

  5. Holz Says:

    If you’re gonna have an open thread, maybe some type of notice on the ammount of comments in the link, or even a time/date of the latest entry

  6. Kate Says:

    Yeah, I’d like to have that, too. So far we haven’t come up with a plan, but we’re working on it.

  7. Holz Says:

    I’m sure you’ve noticed this, but the numbering system of the comments is only one character long, and resets. Not really a bug, per se, but something to note.

  8. Kate Says:

    That is so bizarre, because I don’t see it… Must investigate…

  9. Kate Says:

    Hrm, well, I couldn’t find the problem, in FireFox or IE. What browser/version are you using when you encounter this problem?

  10. Holz Says:

    I’m using IE v6 at work. When this comment comes up, it’ll be the tenth, but I see 0. Maybe it’s just a sizing issue and the 1 is covered up by the gray border.

  11. Kate Says:

    Ooooh, so you’re talking about the numbers that show to the left of each comment, not the total not the total number listed under each post. Okay, then it’s entirely possible that the 1 is covered by the border. Damn. What’s your screen res at work?

  12. Kate Says:

    Okay, scrap that. It also happens when I open up IE. Stupid IE. We’ll fix it. Thanks for the heads up.

    Link away. Being quite an anarchist by nature, I am horrified at the thought that linking to webpages might require permission. :)

  14. Kate Says:

    Well yes, you are right. But at the same time, I know you like to keep a low web profile, so I thought I’d ask. :-)

  15. Manchild Says:

    It’s my real life I like to keep low profile. Any of my web facades is up for grabs.

  16. Kate Says:

    Fair enough. You have been linked.

  17. Holz Says:

    I’m not sure how difficult it is, but you may want to look into an optional password system in the comments for easy editing by the author, or at least manual deletion.

  18. Kate Says:

    Well there is an optional user account/password system where people can make their own posts, but you still can’t edit your comments unless it’s under a post you started. It’s kinda dumb. If there’s ever a comment that you simply must edit or delete, just email me and I’ll do it.

  19. Stan Says:

    Testing 1,2,3

  20. Kate Says:

    Looks like all systems are go.

  21. John Says:

    Hey Kate. I just got around to actually reading your blog. To think I could have been amused for all that time and I just didn’t realize… Anyway, keep up the good work.

    Also, I think it’s interesting that both of us used to be solid Republicans in High School. So much for that, huh?

  22. Kate Says:

    Thanks!! Glad to see you here—er—read you here… well, you know what I mean.

    And yeah, we were really naïve. What was the matter with us?! :-p
