Long Time Readers, First Time Commenters...

...may've noticed a template change. I've been wanting to take this olde blog (now 49 in dog years!) in a new direction and a blog format change seemed in order. I like the look and feel of the white character on the blue since it makes it seem more understated, as if I can get away with more (which is ridiculous of course but...).

I've been slowly working out bugs, which includes the fact that my posts seem to be unlinkable (i.e. no way to link to a specific post). Also I've just figured out how to publish moderated comments (as we used to say back in the '80s, 'duh!'). [Updated: Problems fixed!]

Steinbergs!!!

Comments! How about that!

Blogger Help has an item on permalinking posts that might be helpful. There's a way of enabling the permalink to be created by default.

TS, the Minima Blue template you're using -- is it Classic or Upgraded (whatever they call Upgraded)?

TS said...

Thanks Mark! I think it's working now.

Dylan, not sure. Just picked Minima Blue when I got to template screen.

TS said...

Steinbergs! Assume you caught my nostalgia earlier this week for the old novella.

One geezer to another as he hoists a Guinness at the old Catlick blogger get-together, December 2028: "Hey - remember when TSO added comments to his blog? Aught-eight or so, wasn't it? That was a good day. Long time coming."

Gregg the obscure said...

Wahoo!

Lo these many years of waiting for TSO to add a commenting feature have paid off.

Once again inaction, coupled with rigorous drinking, brings about the desired result. Tonight I'll lift a glass in your honor, sir!

TS said...

Long time coming.

Hmm...I wonder if maybe I'm resistant to change? Naw couldn't be. *grin* A tip o' the Guinness to you too Bill!

It's always worked for me! Great line Gregg, may have to steal that.

Wow comments on your blog, I'm stunned. The world is upside down and I don't know if I can trust anything anymore.

Though I was pretty shocked when Oblique House finally activated her RSS feed - the last Catholic blog to do so.

TS said...

Speaking of holdouts, I've always been surprised that John at "The Inn of the End of the World" doesn't have comments.

TS,

The posts from way back when still don't have permalinks.

On your dashboard, where it says Video meliora, does it say Layout or Template?

TS said...

Yeah the posts back then don't because they were published with the title in the body of the post. I manually republished the last few posts by moving the title in the body up to the title line. But I've figured out how to find the out the URL for any given post anyway so it doesn't much matter.

The dashboard says "layout"...

whoa!

Very Marian.

I do like the comment feature!

Elena said...

Wow TS! I just clicked through from Bloglines and imagine my surprise to see - comments!!

Good for you!!
