Just to a quick update to let everyone know that the blogs on the 2.0 Toolbox are now running off WordPress MU 2.7 (the latest, greatest version of the software). The upgrade went smoothly, for the most part. RSS feeds didn’t survive the upgrade initially, but all is now well on that front.
Here are a couple of things on my to-do list that I will be getting to over the next couple of weeks:
- Better spam control. We currently have a captcha plugin running, but a little spam is still spilling through, so I’m looking for something a bit hardier and hope to test/implement some new spam controls soon. Update: done!
- Fixing the list-all page which lists all the blogs on the 2.0 Toolbox. The script that powers that page has been busted for months and it’s time to do something about it!
- Installing a few more themes. We already have a pretty extensive list of themes on offer, but I haven’t added any new themes in months, so I hope to rectify that very soon.
- Possibly conducting a drop-in session on the new admin interface for faculty and staff members who have a blog on the 2.0 Toolbox. If you have any interest in such a session, let me know.
If you’ve got any questions, comments or suggestions for other features you’d like to see on the 2.0 Toolbox, feel free to get in touch!No comments
