WordPress refixes

Filed under: Geek,Metalog — Tags: , , , , — apotheon @ 09:07

I’ve finally gotten around to trying to re-fix the atrocious character replacement and formatting issues that seem endemic to WordPress in general, after making recent changes to save SOB from its recent problems. This should eliminate “smart quotes” replacement and character spacing that made all the characters in certain presentation contexts run together, as well as restoring justified text alignment. Last, but not least, I fixed the problem this thing had with reversing the meanings of “older” and “newer”.

Yes, this means I’ve been hacking some of the ugliest PHP in the world this morning.

Let me know if you encounter any problems that seem new. Let me know about old problems too, of course.

In the meantime, I’m going to turn off the (apparently intermittently visible) CAPTCHA system for a while. If anyone was unable to post comments because of it, now is the time to let me know. I anticipate leaving it turned off for at least a week — longer, if it turns out it prohibited people from posting comments.

Thanks for being my beta test crew.
