However I’ve also been adding a few more plugins just cos I thought they were cooler.
I’ve been wanting to get rid of the long unsightly categories sidebar for a while and put them in a page of their own, and I’ve always been wanting to start tagging my posts as well, ever since Technorati became a big deal.
Well, now I have done both.
The category archives have been removed from the sidebar and tagging has begun in earnest with the previous post. I’m waiting to see if the tags will also appear in RSS feeds, fingers crossed…
The Archives page which previously simply had the same year and category links now has been AJAX-ified. It takes a while to load though, which is pretty much my main grouse about the plugin, but still it looks cooler than whatever I had before.
Finally, I just came across Bawang Merah’s RSS aggregator which he uses for his Links section, which is a pretty good idea. However I’m gonna look around for a WordPress plugin which will do the same while integrating with the WP theme and layout (and of course, not break the server!), so till then my Links section will remain the very ordinary list you see now.
Phew! Who knew jazzing up a blog could be so tiring….?
UPDATE [10/03/2006]: I’ve added yet another plugin to sort out the links section – BDP RSS Aggregator. It does what I want, which is to display the feeds of the links I select. Also it’s quite customisable and integrates well within the WordPress environment. My biggest problem, in fact, has nothing to do with the plugin – it’s just that I have TOO MANY LINKS. I’ve about a 100 feeds in my Bloglines account and many more in my blogroll. I should drop some of those links from my list, but…. y’all have kinda grown on me, ya know…. UPDATE ON THE UPDATE [10/03/2006]: Nope, can’t do it, I just can’t drop those links. So I’m back to the old links section – although I’m gonna leave the RSS feeds on a page of their own as a test page for a while. Now excuse me while I hack the hell out of some PHP code…
THE LAST WORD [15/03/2006]: Removed the RSS feeds page.
