The latest package of Wordcraft, the PHP/MySQL based blog software that runs this site, is available for download from Google Code. Just some minor bug fixes and cosmetic stuff. Its getting a little use in the wild. That is always fun to see.

There are several key changes in Wordcraft 0.9.1. The two big
The first comes as a result of us doing the same work on Phorum recently. I realized I needed the same protection in Wordcraft. The second was done out of neccesity as I changed the datetime fields in the database schema into int fields. Not sure why I ever made them datetime fields. Unix timestamps are much easier to work …[Read more...]
I am happy to announce Wordcraft 0.7. There are two big changes in this release. On the front end, I added a simple search. It just uses a LIKE clause. But, I figure a lot of blogs never reach 1,000 posts. Even at 10,000 posts, a LIKE would not be too bad. On the backend, I have switched the post editor to TinyMCE.

I am pleased to announce the release of Wordcraft 0.6. I have been using it for a

If you have lots of applications installed on the same site that use them, …
Well, I blogged about Wordcraft the other day. I
have just been running live on the software for 4 days now.
Well, that post had no URI associated with it. It took me
two days to figure this out. Oops. Welcome to
eating my own dog food. So, running this
live with actual users (and a host of bot spam attempts) I am
learning a lot and making a lot of commits. So, I may very
well roll once or twice a week for the first few weeks.
So, with that, I have packaged 0.5. …
So, a while back, not sure when, I was listening to the P3 Podcast and Paul mentioned his dislike for Wordpress. He said he wished there was a simple blogging application. I am probably misquoting him horribly. It was an idea that I had been tinkering with. So, I started on Wordcraft in my spare time. Like super spare time. That time between the kids going to bed and me falling asleep. So, it took a while to get it to a usable state.
Up until now, I have used Wordpress.com for my blogging. It works quite well. You can get started quite quickly and …[Read more...]
