Help me with Custom Post Types, WordPress! Please!

I realize that any given plugin are not “RESPONSIBLE” for problems that derive from what is really WordPress core.  I posted here and in CPT UI only because I knew a key person in the CPT UI team, and they put me in touch with one of the other key people there.  That’s a great plugin, BTW.  Been using it Continue Reading

From CNN: The Gospel according to Obama #OWS #PublicTheology #OccupyChurch

The CNN blog post destined to draw tons of comments: I just did a Google Search on that title and the number two result is frlom godlikeproductions where the author simply reacts aloud:  “Is CNN Serious?”  obviously addressing the choir of folks who consider Obama to be ,  like the author his/herself says,  an “AntiChrist”. The Christian Right is all over this,  Continue Reading

Researching WordPress Custom Post Types and RSS feed/Calendar issues #WPcustomPostTypes

As I have begun doing posts of type “occupytheology”,  I see that the RSS feed does not include them.  I was hoping for an option somewhere,  but it seems WP still hasn’t done much to make the Custom Post Types “administer-able” without Plugins.  I found a Calendar widget for Custom Post Types,  but the links to the Date Archive don’t Continue Reading

Blog Conversion to Thesis @wpthesis @IntenseDebate

I finally got ALMOST what I wanted with my Blog transformation into the Thesis theme.  I was able to duplicate my Pages/SubPages display preferences by using Widget Logic,  which gave me a way to display any widget based on conditional statements. What I want to find now (or learn to understand) is to display or not display entire sidebars (because Continue Reading

Looking for Custom Sidebars for WordPress “Pages” @wp @thesis

I installed the WordPress “Thesis” theme this weekend.   I was hoping for some easily customizable sidebars for use with PAGES.  Here’s why.   I have (in my now inactive K2 theme)  some custom sidebar.php files for three types of pages. The “Pages” I created have to do with “Church of the Saviour” ,  which was represented on my homepage by a Continue Reading

@Intense Debate Installed – tweaking settings

I finally , after much deActivation and Re-Activation in several different orders,  and re-installing the WordPress plugin,  I finally got all the way through the install without error.  A test last night still has problem with my Twitter login and comment continuing to be held in the Moderation queue,  when I thought I had set it up to auto approve Continue Reading

Thesis Theme Newbie Now #wpthesis #wp

I have just installed the Thesis theme.  I paid some money for it,  having seen some demos and heard many people praise it.   I am now looking at how I can set up my “Pages” like “Church of the Saviour”,  which has its own subpages and some of those have several subpages under them.   I have discovered the Pages sidebar Continue Reading

Messing with my Comment system (IntenseDebate) #intensedebate #wordpress #wp

I’m trying to get Intense Debate installed as my WordPress comment system.  It seems to be everything I want and more in really getting my comments integrated with Twitter, Facebook,  FriendFeed and the whole world of Social Media.  But,  alas,  it didn’t go smoothly.  I have some WordPress errors Fatalerror:Cannot redeclare class services_json in \mywebhost\wp222\wp-includes\class-json.php on line 115 Fatal error: Continue Reading

2.9 Upgrade complete #wordpress

I had been looking at the PHP client setting as my mySQL version,  but discovered that the server version was still 4.0.x,  which was not late enough for WordPress 2.9.  Since I was out of db quota for databases (I have 4 mySQL and 4 MSSQLServer),  my host migrated/copied by WordPress database to a new server and restored it all Continue Reading

Tried to upgrade twice to WordPress 2.9 No luck #wordpress

I tried doing the upgrade from my starting point of 2.8.6.   Errors.  Recopied 2.86 files (database updates did not seem to take,  so all was well.)  Saw that plugins might be problem,  so i deactivated all my plugins,  copied up 2.9 files again.  Same errors.  Back to 2.8.6 now.  Will wait for specific solutions to my database errors:  wp database Continue Reading

Integrating Social Networking Services between platforms and services @davewiner #wiredchurch #smchurch

These things that Dave Winer is constantly exploring,  working on,  and lobbying for are in sync with my desires as a blogger/writer.   I want a seamless,  more extensible,  wide reaching network under one roof.   Right now and for a few years,  I use WordPress to blog.   When Twitter came along,  and Facebook,  I was not enamored with the “update” posts Continue Reading

Chrome NOT accommodating for WordPress Bloggers #chrome #blogthis

Several months….even over a year,  and Chrome is still not accommodating the people who blog using WordPress.  There are NO “blogthis “ type plugins for it like IE has for LiveWriter (even Firefox has one of those).  There are also numerous complaints about text formatting for blogging from Chrome to WordPress.  If I have come upon a web page I Continue Reading

Movable Type 4 broken AGAIN!

I haven’t been able to get MT to work since I left it for WordPress 2 years ago.  I’ve been continuing to upgrade and try the installs with all my old posts that I had when I left it.  MT 4.1 started working for a few days,  but now all of a sudden when I try to publish anything…posts, templates,  Continue Reading
