New Features

Thinking about blogosphere I couldn’t help to feel disappointed of many plea- sant and helpful entries lost in the great void of the world wide web within time. Consequently I started to install and test new plugins here on this site.

First of all, there is a new feature called „Popularity Contest“, kindly provided by Alex King, presenting you warauduati’s Most Popular Entries. On a personal level it is interesting to follow which articles are read and commented the most, but on an administrative level I hope for some maybe valuable infor- mation (at least in my unassuming and modest believe) not to be lost within cyberspace. Because of the fear of a distorting statistics, I set the popularity values of home, archive, category, and feed views to „0“, only counting comments (30 pts), permalinks (30), pings (50), and trackbacks (80). I hope that these settings will show the readers of this blog which entries are found and read the most within time.

Secondly, I am running a test phase of „Search Phrases“, provided by Glüh- weinjunkies, although after a few hours I already notice that the feature is not showing the 100% valid googles. It is very well likely that I will shut down this plugin in a few days again.

Thirdly, the next days I will work on an „Articles List Page“ as well as on a „Photos List Page“ to provide a faster and more convenient way to search through this blog for bygone but still interesting entries, instead of browsing the archives and categories. This time Alex King’s „Articles“ plugin didn’t work out for me because I don’t want to list articles below the implemented cate- gories. So this feature might take a few days of construction, but with the advantage to also post some old published articles such as in Ethnologik.

Anyway, another few hours of figuring out blogosphere in its terms and by all means, the technical finesse is still an unread book to me …
