The WordPress trademark

Automattic has transferred the WordPress trademark to the WordPress Foundation, the non-profit dedicated to promoting and ensuring access to WordPress and related open source projects in perpetuity.

so from the beginning I envisioned a structure where for-profit, non-profit, and not-just-for-profit could coexist and balance each other out.

Cool URL: http://ma.tt/ Matt Mullenweg talks with Kim Hill this morning. Interesting and constructive meeting. It is not a discussion about say Holden v Ford or road v rail – the internet v the telephone. It is more evolutionary than that. Road and rail are transportation and commerce platforms – WordPress is a communication, sharing, commerce et el platform. On Twitter: #wordcampnz.

and Matt on Not-WordPress on WordPress! He he you work it out.

Zenfolio slideshow

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “Zenfolio slideshow“, posted with vodpod

Last Friday, the 26th of June 2009, Zenfolio the image storage facility I use was upgraded to include an embed slideshow function. Great, it works really well – but as this site is hosted by WordPress.com I can’t just pop the code straight into a post. So for those who wish to know such things it goes Zenfolio > VopPod > WordPress. If you want to know more – it is fairly straight forward – email me – michael AT michaeljeans.co.nz and I will explain further. Or you could read this. This slideshow is of images from this blog dating back from June 2008 – posts which are gradually being recovered and republished as time allows.

PS If you do want to sign up to Zenfolio quote this HSU-YMW-KNV and you will (me too) receive a small discount.

From typewriter to digital whiteboard

Twenty-Five or so years ago when my Mum – Phyllis Jeans – gathered the material for Centenary 100 Years of Education in the Taotaoroa Whitehall Karapiro Districts. 1885 – 1985 [ISBN 0-473-00307-4] the manuscript was typed (by Lesley Sewell) and set again for the printing presses at Cambridge Independent. We on the other hand have access to all the current digital tools enabling us to share and edit documents from home – view them online at meetings and share much more readily and rapidly to a greater audience the fruits of our research and planning. Above the Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa and Karapiro Hydro Schools’ 125th Jubilee committee meets at Karapiro School this Thursday evening the 4th of June 2009. The 125th Jubilee is being held in September 2010.

Blog update

Not that much to show. An upgrade of GetSocial software to include a Twitter button which will be used muchly in the coming week. Signed up or ‘claimed this blog’ at Technorati using OpenID which – if I had read the not so fine print – I am signed to as part of WordPress.com.

Add to Technorati Favorites

If this all sounds like so much geekery. There is method here – taking my blog entries and pushing them into places where they will be seen by more – hopefully pulling more visitors back to MichaelJeans.co.nz. I have been doing this with selected posts to FaceBook and Twitter for a couple of months. The GetSocial tool at the bottom of each post makes this easy. For the coming week I will be using StumbleUpon and Delicious as well.

I have spent time over the past few days establishing links between both sites. Searching my archive should become as rich as searching here over time. Just shaping the archive into something that is simple and intuitive is a bit of a challenge. Hopefully the basics are there.  WordPress 2.7 made it’s appearencce at 2PM this afternoon. The new dashboard is all is very flash and functional. As is usual with WordPress upgrades, particularly when familiar with all the bells and whistles, the improvements are a delight.

Search box error

One of those things. I am showing off the marvel that is a dynamic website and am confronted with a search box problem. Multiple renditions of the same post are being returned with some search queries. I have done a little testing and it seems to happen when there are more than twenty or so instances of a particular search item. As usual I wonder if it is something I have overlooked. In my defence I had not noticed it before installing WP2.6 but then again I use the search function infrequently. It does not appear to be occurring with tag or category searches using the tag cloud or the place and month drop downs. Mmm. I am not receiving any error messages database or otherwise – so it remains one of those little WordPress mysteries for the time being.

Update 15/10/2008 Note to self. The above is redundant with the move from WP.org (self hosting) to WP.com. Well in a sense. It is still possible, I am sure, to create multiple entries of the same post. I have to admit it was me that caused the problem. Something to do with the auto save function when used repeatedly in editing a post. I think the record was 9 copies of one entry.
