Lately my blog has been hit
with a torrential downpour of comment spam. I’ve been able to fight
much of it off with some creative regular
The other tactic I neglected to mention in my previous
combatting comment spam is more big picture. How do we remove the
incentive for spammers to comment spam in the first place?
With the Subtext 1.9 release just around the corner, this is probably a
good time to highlight some minor, but important, changes to skinning in
In my previous
I outlined some minor changes to the skinning model for Subtext. In this
post, I will give a high level overview of how skinning works in

Work on Subtext 1.9
is progressing well with more and more contributors chipping in. No firm
release date yet, but hopefully soon. The latest builds are pretty
stable, but there a few more minor bug fixes to get in there. Also we

No, this is
not a case of breaking and entering. With preparations for the next
release of Subtext, apparently our SourceForge ranking has climbed up
