Fiddling around on Apr. 3rd

The “New Post” link at the top of WordPress goes to a new post form devoid of useful options. Now why would WordPress want to make that the standard?

Discovered today that some versions of Spring Insight (even developer version) wouldn’t deploy if the hostname it’s on doesn’t resolve properly in DNS. Doesn’t that describe most developer workstations? Version 1.5.1 doesn’t seem to have this problem though.

Discovered Eclipse/STS Window->Customize Perspective today. It lets me choose which things go on the top toolbar and the top menubars. It doesn’t let me re-order them, and it doesn’t seem to change the right-click context menus, but this does help clear up a lot of clutter. I don’t really use the toolbar – I should probably either remove it (can I do that?) or put really useful stuff on there. And now I kind of want to go through the list of items and find out what they all do…

I also got seriously derailed trying to change system appearance settings in Fedora. It really needs an “undo” button.

And I spent a bit of time fiddling with STS trying to bend the tc Server instances to my will. There doesn’t seem to be a guide anywhere to what all the terms mean. I think I’ll write one up tomorrow or sometime.

  1. Have you found a way to make the “New Post” button go away? I agree with you about its uselessness, especially when I have a bunch of users who need to post in specific categories.

    • Nope. I imagine someone has a greasemonkey script for it, but I just ignore it.
