  • My Script for Auto WordPress Upgrade

    I like posting scripts. I am proud of most of them. I mentioned before that I run WordPress trunk and that every day, the auto upgrade script runs, upgrades this blog and sends me a detailed email regarding the upgrade.

  • Ninjafying WordPress

    In case you’re looking to have WordPress related work done, or want to find WordPress related tips, I’m blogging (and consulting) back over at Emmense.

    WordPress 2.0.6 was released today. This is a critical security release (There are at least two security flaws that I know of that were fixed in this version). I went ahead and upgraded all of our blogs successfully. If you manage more than, say, 10 blogs then perhaps Brian Layman’s script will be useful for […]

    If you’ve been seriously blogging for any bit of time at all, you’ve heard of the juggernaut that is WordPress. WordPress, of course, is the most popular self-hosted blogging platform utilized by independent writers. The official launch of WordPress 2.0 is upon us and, no doubt, the blogosphere will be buzzing about its launch. As a […]
