Free-range Chickens – K8 & Jess On the Road

I did warn her that it would end up on-line at some point.

Last year we rented a van to pick up stuff from Tioga and help my parents move. The van was one of those kidnapper models; big, noisy, and with a badly functioning radio. I have always loved conversations with Caidy, so on this trip I did one of those evil husband-friend things. I recorded our boring ride on my phone.

I was recently reminded of this part which takes place as we pass through Lafayette, Louisiana heading south on HWY 90 (I-49). If you don’t know, this is a busy urban road planned to be a future interstate going through a decent sized town. Not the sort of place where you would expect to see several chickens living the dream. Enjoy!

WP Super Edit 2.1

This is a minor, yet major update for WP Super Edit. Mostly this version fixes a nasty oversight on my part and updates the plugin for better compatibility with the upcoming release of WordPress 2.7.

I also added Font Tools as WP Super Edit plugin instead of adding the Font Face and Font Size drop down menus to the basic list of TinyMCE options. After you update WP Super Edit, you can use the Rescan tinymce_plugins Folder option and have access to the Font Tools plugin. I have to keep this one separate so I can keep those menus out reach for my users.

I had to change the TinyMCE settings scanning that is done during installation since WordPress 2.7 changes the editor initialization. It really should not matter too much, and it is mostly designed as a method to capture other TinyMCE plugins that might be installed. Someday I would love to make it possible to add options to control the editor options added by other plugins, but that will be really complicated for sure.

Please feel free to leave any issues as a comment here.

Yank Widget 1.2

I’ve completed an update to my silly Yank Widget WordPress Plugin.

This release includes some minor bug fixes and hopefully some optimizations.

  • Yank Widgets should be more optimized. The plugin checks for pages added to Yank Widget areas on each post or page before trying to query the database for pages added to a Yank Widget sidebar area.
  • The widget container will not show without page content for all posts and pages unless you set the widget to always show the container in the widget settings.
  • Multipage pages using nextpage that are used in Yank Widget areas will now only show a “Read More” link that will direct the visitors to the second page.

As usual, if please leave a comment or send me a note if you find any issues! If you find this strange plugin useful, please consider making a donation or other contribution!
