I wanted to add a widget to a wordpress web article that allowed readers to add the event to their calendars. I found the site called, “AddEvent“. Fabulous. Proving that doing one thing well is all a web service has to do. Continue reading “Adding an Event to a Calendar”

I need a fifth blog; I am planning to reimplement my ello feed in wordpress and so I checked out some themes, simple, sosimple, libretto and minnow. I went live with minnow. Continue reading “Yet another wordpress theme”
If the short code is before the More line, then it appears on the Home, if after only if one enters the page itself. (So make a tiny article that looks like part of the header and pin it? We now have some PHP, see below/overleaf. )
For various reasons I needed to look at SPARQL again. What’s the easiest way to put it up?, Here! I’ve been working with LH-Tools which is commented on at its authors site, and LH-RDF. I did not get this to finish satisfactorily, mainly based on my lack of SPARQL skills. May 2015
LH-Tools implements a SPARQL endpoint, and LH-RDF implements a series of alternative RDF schemas. LH-RDF has been deactivated at the moment, but the SPARQL query screen is here; it uses the default rdf feed as a source.
I have errors occurring when using LH-RDF; see the comments to track. Jan 2017
While developing the new web site, I had a look at how my mingle was organised. The current regime has a conversion rules file for each output format and one for HTML. I need to incorporate the HTML output in a wordpress page and also apply the wordpress style rules to the HTML. I solved this problem by generating three html files, a feed, a source key and an output format key and then including them in the host page. Continue reading “Planet, mingle & wordpress”

Tag Clouds have been bugging me for ages, and I have just installed, WP Category Tag Cloud, which is pretty awesome. I have used the short codes to set up a tag cloud on its own page, and also installed a moving three-D cloud on the About this Wiki page. The featured picture is a picture generated by tagcloud.

I am thinking of expanding Nulis across my web estate and thought I might use a different header image for the blog. I experimented with using this as a the image or as a base for the image.
The image above is implemented as a hyperlink to the image hosted on flickr. It is registered as All rights reserved by lloydich, taken in 2014. It seems I need permission. Let’s see if he’ll give it to me, if not I’ll have to use one of mine.
I had a quick look at Nextscripts: Social Network Auto Poster. It claims to be able to forward posts to other social networks. These include as targets, twitter, linkedin and facebook. The also offer Google+ but that needs an additional library which may be chargeable. I need to work on this a bit more.
Since the blog is already forwarding to Facebook and now Medium via IFFTTT, which are the most important targets and I am unsure I want everything to go through to linkedin or even twitter, this may not be as useful as I hoped. I returned to this in Aug 2016 as I was interested in occasionally forwarding my micro blog to Medium. Continue reading “Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter”
This is a delight. This post at wordpress’ support forum is the place to start. This wasn’t the problem, but I am sure we’ll be back!
While working on Nulis and while attempting to solve some other problems I began to need to document the contents of wordpress databases. The first problem I sought to solve was to build a visual map of the site. This needs the schema to be understood and the table contents to be extracted. This needs the login parameters and a connection route. The second problem involves creating a new template and will need it’s SQL designed and encapsulated in PHP.

While winding myself up to play NWN2, I started experimenting with image morphing software, to see if I could make a video of a Druid Shifter polymorphing into their werebear shape. Sadly I think I lost the pictures from the 1st attempt and so as I started the game I had another go. Anyway once created, there is the question of how to serve it on the web. This article documents the tools I used to create the video and the tools I used to host it on this page. Continue reading “Rendering New Age Video”
