@conorpegypt Instead of "Where's Wally?" It'll be "where's Ryan … IN THE WORLD!"
@conorpegypt The Google Street View car drove past me on the street the other week. Doesn't seem to be online yet though.
@conorpegypt Maybe. I wondered if it might bloat the page a bit much though. I didn't think many people would care about the Street View.
Ever wondered where PixoPoint is based? https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/location/ . Google Street view is darn handy some times!

@squidsoup Possibly :p It's an unlabelled reject direct from a vineyard.
Random unlabelled bottle of wine … tastes a bit icky
@markbrown4 I wasn't expecting much. I'm having to load a header image at 188 kB so keen to shave off as much as possible.
@markbrown4 Thanks. That "smushed" 3% off my file sizes.
What's the best online tool for JPG compression? I saw one which could compress much better than Photoshop but I've lost the link 🙁
@Der_WupperPirat Thanks for the info 😀 I'm writing a new version which will also be compatible too.

@miriamschwab No biggie. After reading it over I didn't bother changing anything anyway.
@Daniel_Lambert Yep, stuff is being deleted over at SMF left, right and center. Very sad to see.
@iandstewart If you make a theme that makes me happy, then you are probably doing something wrong 😛 I'm presumably not your target market.
@miriamschwab Lol, thanks for pointing out that post was there. I forgot it was scheduled :p It also wasn't finished!

@xurizaemon My new system will work with Drupal too.
Lol, lesson in life … don't leave the delete.php file you were using to test the uninstall system for your WP plugin on your live site :p
@Kravvitz I'll be releasing the WP plugin along with instructions for it once I iron out a few crinkles.
@Kravvitz I'm surprised no one's built anything like it before, but I've never seen any tutorials or plugins for it.
People say you can't use WordPress plugins in other software, but what do they know :p … http://bit.ly/6bXT6Y
@Kravvitz Ah yes, I was referring to the Comment as select profile feature. I gave up and told my client I can't do it now though.
@rhyswynne I'm a moderator at the Tavern, but I don't have the ability to activate registrations sorry. Only Jeff can do that.
@Kravvitz Sorry, but I still have no idea. I'm not even sure what blog page you are referring to.

@raena I've been there twice now. Are you from there?
@conorpegypt Woops. That blog post wasn't supposed to be tweeted. I backdated, but I guess Twitter Tools didn't care about that.

@rhyswynne My problems have been with wp-blog-header.php. For some reason they don't like loading it without the rest of WP some times.
@rhyswynne Having to test on a specific host is not a good sign :p I've had similar problems with GoDaddy. Their servers are WEIRD!
@NuclearStr1der Are you referring to OneRoom? http://web-kreation.com/demos/oneroom/
Backlog of work almost cleared 😀 I need to stop doing non-paying work though :p
@bradleypotter I just noticed that too. And no, it doesn't. But I'm not wanting to release what I create with it anyway, so not a problem 😀
@bradleypotter Thanks! That actually looks pretty useful for what I have in mind 😀
Anyone know of a good design suitable for a site with a logo of a scary bird skeleton? Maybe something dark, scary and green?

Our SMF forum now uses our WordPress template files 😀 … https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/forum/. Modify WP theme, change is shown in SMF 😀
@wpseek No one uses WP Cache anymore. Use WP Super Cache instead.
Dang nabbit! Program works on local server but not actual server 🙁
@ronalfy I think WP has wiped the buffer before shutdown() fires. I might be stuck with wp_footer() instead.
@ronalfy I've never heard of it. Will look it up.
@ronalfy Output buffering page. ob_start hooked via template_redirect(). Using wp_footer() for ob_get_contents but that's not quite the end.
Anyone know of a WP hook which fires after the template has loaded? ie: something after wp_footer()?
@Viper007Bond Can that. It seems Google Checkout does now work in NZ 😀 … http://bit.ly/4rWa3z
@Viper007Bond I don't think I can use Google Checkout. AFAIK that only works in the USA and a few other countries. I could be wrong though.
@ronalfy Do banks normally accept cheques from outside the country though?
@WPKickStart I think if I upload any videos I'll use VideoPress. It seems to be fairly reliable and the upgrade isn't that expensive.
@WPKickStart Thanks 😀 I'll subscribe to it now!
@IsraelButson I have a business account already, so hopefully that can do it 😀 Thanks for the tip!
@WPKickStart You are sending users to another site, which doesn't seem like something you would want to do.
@WPKickStart Your RSS feed is screwed .. http://wpkickstart.com/feed/
@WPKickStart Thanks for the video. How come you don't embed the video on your site?
How do you accept a payment via PayPal if someone doesn't have a PayPal account and doesn't want to create one?
Is there a tutorial available about this? http://bit.ly/4Zcj5r
@Kravvitz Sorry, but I don't understand your last tweet. I've seen bazillions of blogs that use blogger.

@cssispoetry SnytaxHighlighter Evolved adds a bit too much junk to the page IMO, but it works pretty well … http://bit.ly/ZpQ43
@cssispoetry Always check that a plugin works with your current version before using it (unless it's only out by a week or so).
@cssispoetry There's development underway by @janeforshort and co which should prevent problems like this in the future.
@cssispoetry I use SnytaxHighlighter Evolved http://bit.ly/ZpQ43 . You can see it in action here https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/?p=904
@cssispoetry There's lots of problems with that plugin because it is so old. Lots of legacy code that could break for various reasons.
@cssispoetry Is this the one you mean? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-syntax-highlighter/.
@cssispoetry Will go download Googles Code Syntax Highlighter and take a look for you.
@Viper007Bond Do you regularly run trunk? I tried that for about two months (wanted post thumbnails) but got ticked off at stuff breaking.
New blog post: Animating your dropdown menu … https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/animating-menus/
Hm, Genesis serialises options, and loads them via gensis_get_options(). Pretty nifty and looks cleaner than using the array directly.
Testing out the new Genesis theme from StudioPress. Looks good so far … http://bit.ly/65t95f
My copy of WordPress Plugin Development by Vladimir Prelovac finally arrived, YAY 😀
@MsConstantine Sounds exciting!
@conorpegypt Good info. about SEO is extremely hard to find. Luckilly most of it is common sense. Best place to learn is from Matt Cutt's.
@conorpegypt Looks like the file is corrupted. Overwriting it should fix it.
@conorpegypt No, I meant the URL, ie: the web address for the site.
@conorpegypt What's the URL?
@five15design Thanks for the referral 😀
@durablegraphics I hear you need a WP developer in Dunedin. I'm Dunedin based and available for work. My site is at https://geek.hellyer.kiwi/
@jacobsantos Unchecked $_POST, no user permissions check. Haven't heard back from developer. It's not anything in the repo.
Got a very funky new menu animation working this evening. Simple, but effective. Done with jQuery. More info. posted in a day or two.
