The only feedback I ever got was how some people didn’t like the way theirs looked, and it wasn’t worth the griping.

Allan: Glad I could help. I just want to “pass it along”, since the two first commenters, Kelson and Myk, have been so helpful to me in the past when I had code questions. Myk gave me the idea to write this up.

David: Thanks for the information and additional links. I know one can’t complain about someone doing something for free quitting, but it is a shame when someone stops working on something useful. Thankfully, so far, others have picked up the ideas.

The purple boxes are part of the theme (modified Mostly Muppet). If you want the CSS for them, let me know.

Slimstat isn’t perfect, but it is a little robust. I haven’t noticed a performance increase, either. I do recall running into a nasty bug on installation that I had to fix in the php file. I may switch to Popstats, if only because it looks much more simple. It’s also still being developed, while Slimstat has stalled.

I also use Simple Spoiler and KG Archives. Both are super-easy.

Thanks for doing this. I’d been meaning to ask you a few questions about your WP install, anyway. Are those neat purple boxes around your post info (authorbox?) and images part of a theme or are they from a plugin? They look extremely nice, and I like that you can do captions.

I keep meaning to try some others, and play about with the design code as I’m so impressed by what you do here. It’s great to see some of these behind the scenes “secrets” laid out. Thanks!

For example, one had display values set to 10, and I wanted 20, so I edited the code and voila!

The recent comments and related posts functions are great, though, and exactly the kinds of plug-ins that have me back on the fence on what my next move will be. Now that I’ve been considering switching from Blogger, it’s either been increasingly buggy or I’ve become less tolerant of the bugs that were always there.

Since they get no Google boost from links with “nofollow” they´d stop spamming your comments.

Well, so much for the theory.

Someone broke into the WordPress download server a few days ago and inserted a security flaw in the WP 2.1.1 files. If you downloaded it as soon as it came out, it should be okay, but they’re urging anyone running 2.1.1 to upgrade to 2.1.2 ASAP, just in case.

Back on topic, I’ll have to check out Similar Posts. I’ve been using a locally-hacked version of Related Posts more or less forever, and I keep wondering when it’ll stop working.
