Some tweaking has been done, and a new plugin added. As I mentioned earlier, feeds have been moved. I hope the three people who occasionally read my nonsense have caught on to that…
But the point is that you should now see a shiny new “Like” button at the end of each post, and that these thingies should appear on Farcebook without waiting for “Selective Tweets” to catch up.
Well, now I’ve ticked the right box, future posts should appear on Farcebook.
Pah! Farcebookery didn’t really work – had to jump through a ludicrous “developer” process which totally failed to do anything other than annoy me. Facebook: the idea of a plugin is so users don’t have to do all that rubbish. I’ll look again if a better version comes along. In the meantime, avoid!!
Update: 8 July 2012 Not sure if it’s the plugin having had an update, Facebook catching up with itself, or random wossnameness, but I now have this working in the mode of automagically posting to my Timeline when I publish posts here. I still think the API configuration is excessive for end users – fine for people developing apps, but not for linking WordPress sites.
I managed to remember which account I’d used, and more importantly managed to transfer the feeds to the account I can remember to log into, so I’ve been able to change the settings I needed to change. So ignore this post.
Due to one of several possible issues the RSS feed for Losing it is changing to a shiny new address:
In theory, if you’ve subscribed using the standard address, your feed should keep working, but if it doesn’t, try the one shown above.
 Either Goooooogle oddness or me totally forgetting which account I used for setting things up with Feedburner
As I mentioned briefly yesterday, Newcastle’s beach by the river project, or Quayside Seaside, to use its actually pretty nifty name, has returned. It’ll be in place until October, which means there should be at least one sunny day while it’s open. That’s not allowing for the rain that’ll saturate the sand, howling winds that’ll strip the palm trees, and plagues of locusts that’ll have whatever’s left, of course. But I’m sure they’ve allowed for those typical elements of the British summer.
When I was there yesterday lunchtime, there didn’t seem to be much interest., but here are some pictures, including a close view of a palm tree thingy.
We all like cute cuddly toys, right? I might have one or two Tiggers myself, and even a Dalek, but this item that I spotted in the window of Forbidden Planet yesterday is possibly the cutest ever. Yes, it’s a cute and cuddly facehugger. Go on, you want one, don’t you?
A third release candidate has escaped been released, which fixes a few issues which turned up in testing. The actual release can’t be far off now…
I’m looking forward to at least one new feature, which I’ll talk about when I can show it to you. Some of the other new things will only be relevant if my current theme is adapted to use them, but fall under the “would be nice to have” rather than “me want!!!” heading.
