  1. Right, what Bruce said. Depending on the version of WordPress you're using, you may also need to make sure the template tag generating your list of pages is set to observe your manual ordering. The default tag is usually: ><?php wp_list_pages(); ?> But that doesn't always do what you want it to do. If `wp_list_pages()` is the tag you're using, you'll need to make sure you're setting the `sort_column` argument: ><?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order'); ?> There are other tags that can generate lists of pages and you might be using something differ
  2. Looking at what you have in your first post, it seems like something like... ><?php wp_list_categories('orderby=id&exclude=55,56,57,58&title_li=&hierarchical=0'); ?> ...would generate what you're looking for. Order by ID, exclude the specified categories, no heading or outer list item, no nested lists for subcategories.
  3. The template tag wp_list_categories() is a fairly recent function, one that's intended to replace the older wp_list_cats(). Both functions work in a very similar way. One problem I can see is that you're using arguments intended for wp_list_cats() with wp_list_categories() instead. To sort by id with wp_list_cats: ><?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=id'); ?> To sort by id with wp_list_categories: ><?php wp_list_categories('orderby=id'); ?> What's that `depth=1` argument you're using? I can't find any documentation on that for either function. Wh
  4. I agree that sounds like a missing or incomplete file. get_private_posts_cap_sql() is part of wp-includes/post.php and is new to 2.2.
  5. I don't follow. Are you talking about the main page containing only links to content stored on other pages? As far as I know, Dreamweaver doesn't have the capability to interact with WordPress at all. You can still use Dreamweaver to help you with creating layouts, but you'll have to get your hands dirty to make them into proper WP themes. The best thing to do would be to recreate your content in WordPress, then delete the old files and use 301 redirection to send all visitors (including search engines) to the new WP content. Search engines will usually update their lis
  6. I hate to dispute the plugin author, but he's incorrect. The plugin is in fact hardcoded for configurations where WordPress is stored in the site root. Line 128 of pluginst.php defines the variable $toggle, which is then output on line 148 as part of the Uninstall table. Here's line 128: >$toggle = "<a href='/wp-admin/plugins.php?page=".$_GET['page']."&uninstall=".$plugin_file."'>".__('Uninstall')."</a>"; As you can see, the link will always point to your website's root. To get the plugin to work properly, change line 128 to this: >$toggle = "<a h
  7. All those views and no responses? Ok, I'll bite. I'll take a look at the plugin. What version of WordPress are you using?
  8. Nope, that's not hard at all. ><a href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> Atom 0.3 Feed">Atom Feed</a> <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss_url'); ?>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> RSS 0.92 Feed">RSS 0.92 Feed</a> <a href="<?php bloginfo('rdf_url'); ?>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> RDF/RSS 1.0 Feed">RDF/RSS 1.0 Feed</a> Of course, you'll want to adjust that as required to match your theme and your tastes.
  9. Oh, duh. I forgot to give appropriate permissions to the parent directory. Yeah, my first idea does work, so long as I give the parent of the folder to be removed temporarily higher permissions. The rmdir() command worked just fine for me. I'll try this one next time I break something. Thanks, guys!
  10. Understood, but if it's possible to resolve this myself, I'd like to. This issue pops up now and again among my TCH-using friends and I'd like to be able to offer a better solution than simply "the help desk can fix it."
  11. I allowed a PHP script (plugin for WordPress) to create a directory. Now the directory is owned by a different user ID. I can't read from it, write to it or change permissions. I've tried using a simple PHP script to remove the directory (thinking if PHP created it, PHP can remove it), but that doesn't work. The part of the original script that created the directory is: >if ( !is_dir( ABSPATH . 'wp-content/backup-db' ) ) { mkdir( ABSPATH . 'wp-content/backup-db' ); } and the command I've tried to remove the directory is: >rmdir('/home/secret_name/public_html/blog/
  12. That looks pretty slick. That BBCode thing is a smart feature. I use something different for comment status management: Extended Comment Options. It has some nice options for advanced control, but it doesn't do anything automatically.
  13. That sounds like a rotten response. More feedback from the script vendor? So should you contact Automattic, makers of Akismet, or Automattic, lead developers of WordPress? The first time I got that error, I figured Yahoo timed out or something. Now I'm not so sure. My next steps will be to submit the problem to Akismet and UTW and to deactivate all my other plugins and reactivate them one by one. I've never used that feature before. I tried it out just now and it worked just fine me. Which really only tells you that you're cursed and I'm not. Deactivating plugins to tr
  14. It's strictly coincidental that I knew about that outage. I just started subscribing to the WordPress category at the Blog Herald. I hate to muddy the waters any further, but I'm really not a fan of Spam Karma. I tried it for a while and found it troublesome. For me, it was prone to mystery errors and had a very high rate of false positives. I use Akismet, Bad Behavior and Trackback Validator. I also use another plugin that stictly speaking isn't a spam fighter, but is probably more effective than all the others combined. Extended Comment Options provides a handy interface for closing
  15. This probably wasn't related to TCH at all, Kathy. Akistmet has been having downtime issues today.
