An attempt to write a blog post a day for a whole year

Over the past few days I’ve been setting up a small and simple, yet long term project in which I intend to write at least one blog post a day for entire year, starting with the first post on 1st January 2010.

The project preparation started on the 24th December when I registered the domain name yearblog.co.uk (a little dull, but to the point). Once that and the hosting side of things were ready I installed the latest version of WordPress (2.9) and began coming up with a few ideas for simple theme. Continue reading

Issue with WP SubHeading plugin v1.1

An update to the WordPress SubHeading plugin was committed on Wednesday 2nd December, which added the ability to completely remove all stored subheadings when deactivating the plugin.

This new ‘tidy’ feature was enabled by default, but I failed to remember that during the plugin upgrade process the plugin was deactivated and then activated once the new version had been successfully installed.

Because of this and the ‘tidy’ setting active, the hooks I had in place always (wrongly) assumed that it was a new install, rather than an upgrade, and therefore may have removed all the subheading values you had set.

As of version 1.2 this feature is disabled by default, and checks for any previous version of the plugin before resetting your options and deleting the meta values (subheadings).

Apologies to anyone who has suffered  from a loss of data, and I hope all these issues are now resolved as of the latest version (1.2).
