A note on the blogging of photos

I did write this explanation before, but blogsome crashed and it got lost, which annoyed me greatly, especially as the post was a minor rant about blogsome in the first place.

When I post pictures from flickr, or blog from my phone, blogsome adds a \ before each ” which messes with the code, breaks the link, and makes it look like I can’t type for shit.

I’ve known about this for a while, so any pictures you’ve seen up here I’ve gone in and corrected the code manually. For the time being, there will be a delay between my posting a pic from my phone and being able to get to the internets to sort it out.

The problem appears to be the blogsome is using an old version of WordPress. There have been a couple of wordpress updates since, which have rectified this, but the guys who run blogsome don’t seem to be upgrading. Or, for that matter, explaining to all the people in the forums if and when they intend on upgrading. This is fair enough I suppose, given that the hosting is free, but there are lots of other free blogging sites around, and WordPress have started their own now.

Soon, I shall be moving to a new home all of my very own, so I’m going to stick with blogsome until then. In the mean time, you’ll just have to be patient with the links.
