This site now supports OAuth logins via Google, Facebook, and Twitter.

I have upgraded to the latest Geeklog version 2.1.0, available from:
https://www.geeklog.net/filemgmt/index.php/1130

This prompted me to make some changes to the theme. I have my site logo working again and now looks good even on mobile devices. I should probably test the site on a Windows computer but I don't have any available these days. Update: Seems to work ok on modern Windows computers with IE, also.


I made some other plugin updates and additions. These are the plugins I have installed and are compatible with Geeklog 2.1.0:

Autotags 1.1.0
http://www.geeklog.net/filemgmt/index.php/1061

Captcha 3.5.5
https://www.geeklog.net/filemgmt/index.php/1121

SocialShare 1.2

Open Graph Protocol (OGP) 1.1.7

Woops! While trying to update some Geeklog plugins to help fight the Spammers (I am getting hundreds and hundreds of bogus user registrations per day), I broke parts of the site. I am normally more careful about making a backup immediately before starting an upgrade, but in this case, I had Faith and Trust.

And Backups... luckily.

Site restored.

And so I announce... I might be making changes to the registration process to help combat the high volume of spam account creation.

Sorry Spammers, I am tired of useless trackback and pingback traffic.

I have decided to disable pingback and trackback here on my thatlinuxbox blog. Hopefully I can spend my time on better things than deleting spammer garbage.

I had some trouble with this install due mostly to documentation issues.

I made some minor changes to the thatlinuxbox style sheet.

I adjusted the size of some of the headings, decreased the font size for most of the text, and changed the story body text color from black to a dark grey (that's #333333 for you web geeks).
