Header image

June 15, 2010

At last sorted out this issue about header image.   I paid for the custom CSS but I needed some tricks to use my own header image and make it clickable.     This forum thread taught me how to do that using a textbox widget.

The theme is now perfect.

一千三百多個 posts 已經搬了去 Blogger, 用的是這個網站的服務。我內容的 export file 原來沒有 12Mb 那麼大,除去了垃圾只有 3Mb 左右。因那個網站只能容下1Mb 的 xml file 所以我要把我的切成三個然後做 convert,過程也十分順利。

因知道不用錢在 GoDaddy 也有 Total DNS control 現在也將 am.notsowise dot net map 到 Blogger, Tumblr 的那個叫 i.was359 dot net, 用 email 來 post 實在方便所以 Posterous 的那個便用來 autopost 去全部的 Blogs, Twitter 及 Facebook.

你一定問要不要這麼多呢? 當然不要, 新事物是要試的但我同時又要安全可靠及不費錢,總之是心多。

學(玩)了管理自己的 VPS 二年多現在是時候放棄 Slicehost,可能停用之前試裝新的 Ubuntu 10.04 及 LAMP/LEMP。我亦有三個域名我想也可放棄一個。多年來已經有過不少的域名,轉變就是永恆,好像不想被人找到或記住。我的網誌只是我雲端的記憶體,忘記了便往那裡找,人們找不到我不是問題。

From WP to Tumblr

May 12, 2010
I posted a link earlier about exporting content from WP to Tumblr.   Searched and found this, which is a tedious way since I have 12Mb of data, and there is also PHP script here which I think is the same as the one I posted earlier.

There is another one here which is a WordPress plugin.   I don't know Python but if you do you could try this one.   There is even a command line tool in Ruby, if you know the language, head over here.

Paid up WP dot com

May 7, 2010
At last I paid $14.97 for CSS upgrade and tweaked the "White As Milk" theme a little last night.   Play with stylesheet online is too slow so I installed XAMPP on my Windows 7 to play with it on localhost, too bad the theme available from WP dot com isn't exactly the same as that available for download for general public.    The tricky part was to make my site header image clickable it's so easy if I'm allowed to add just a line in the header.php file.   It's done now by a tricky and dumb way.

I  have yet to sort out font size and line space.   I'll write to support as well as there is obviously mistake in the code for this this theme.
