Server Update

Tags: Meta jl@ 3:32 pm

The hunch.net server has been updated. I’ve taken the opportunity to upgrade the version of wordpress which caused cascading changes.

  1. Old threaded comments are now flattened. The system we used to use (Brian’s threaded comments) appears incompatible with the new threading system built into wordpress. I haven’t yet figured out a workaround.
  2. I setup a feedburner account.
  3. I added an RSS aggregator for both Machine Learning and other research blogs that I like to follow. This is something that I’ve wanted to do for awhile.
  4. Many other minor changes in font and format, with some help from Alina.

If you have any suggestions for site tweaks, please speak up.

    This is a great feature. However, I was not able to find a link to it. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

      I’m epsilon confused. Do you mean that you would like the ‘ml related posts’ in the sidebar to be on their own page?

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I thought you have shared specific posts from other blogs that you have found interesting as in:
    http://googlereader.blogspot.com/2008/05/share-anything-anytime-anywhere.html
    e.g. http://www.google.com/reader/shared/user/08879817730899697092/state/com.google/broadcast

    I do see the collection of the blogs on the right hand side (very useful; thank you).

    hey,

    the new font for the right column is really grating on the eyes.

    Why does the feed for this site have poker spam in it?

      Thanks much for alerting me. It looks like the BablooO exploit mentioned here is active. I scrubbed the posts and am rotating passwords.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
