A Long Day of Updates

It’s been quite a day for Monkeyhouse Zendo:

  • Updated the template
  • Tied the blog into my twitter feed
  • Added entries to the blogroll
  • Added an ‘Achievements‘ page
  • Cleaned up some of the categories

I think the design is finally at a point that is visually simple enough for me without being utterly bland. It’s functional enough that I can use it.

Left to do:

  • Create a stylesheet for the Achievements page
  • Figure out why tags and other metadata isn’t showing on posts
    • metadata does show up but not in Chrome
  • Enable comments

Issue with wordpress 404 errors

So after migrating the blog to the new host none of the static or archive pages worked. They all resulted in a 404 error and not the expected page or even the customised 404 page.

It turns out that I’d neglected to restore the .htaccess file which sets the mod_rewrite option. I expect you’d also get the same behavior if the permissions were set too strictly.


cat .htaccess
# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /james/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /james/index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress
