Just a quick nerdy update. Just skip this if your eyes glaze over when people start talking about technical stuff. 😉
In Howie’s footsteps, I added the Fotobook plugin to my blog. It’s an application that pulls my Facebook albums and displays them within my blog on their own page. They’re on the Photos page. I still have to figure out how to add a chron job so they’ll update automatically, pulling the most recent versions from Facebook.
Things got dicey when I was messing with those plugins and my blog suddenly displayed only the entry titles and the stuff that goes below entries; the post bodies were missing. After the initial shock, I posted back and forth with friends on Twitter.
I suspected it had to do with the first version of Lightbox 2 I’d installed. In a thread on Facebook’s Fotobook group page, Lightbox won’t work, I learned two things. One, Fotobook works fine in WordPress 2.7 if you use the older version of Lightbox: version 184.108.40.206. Additionally, I am not the only person to have blog entry bodies disappear from view after installing Lightbox 2.
Things seem to be running smoothly now. I’m doing another backup!
