The new Press This in WordPress 4.2 beta 2 is slick

Try this: update to WordPress 4.2 beta 2 and drag the “Press This” to your bookmark bar. Visit a URL that you like and poof. I just did that on a Flickr photo and I was able to select the image from the options and below is the result. Explore Alvin Bernardo’s photos on Flickr! Source: […]

Favorite new WordPress 3.9 feature

Copying and pasting from Microsoft Word directly into the Visual Editor is my new favorite thing in 3.9 beta. I just tried it on Lily’s store WordPress site and it worked alright. This is a fortunate side effect of 3.9 getting a new version of TinyMCE. I know, that sounds anti-climatic even a little mundane given […]

Still a sucker for WordPress beta

I took the plunge and once again used SVN to switch from running WordPress 3.1.3 to 3.2 beta. The betas are usually solid and I test my nightly backups on a different server from time to time. Unless something really drastic happens to the WordPress repo, I’ll be fine with the beta. The new fullscreen […]

Trying Firefox 4 beta again

Recently I gave Firefox 4 beta 4 a try but ended up removing it. As a beta it was not bad but I had some minor problems with Adobe Flash and the benefits were not enough to get me to keep it. Firefox 4 beta 7 is another story. On a whim I installed it […]

Playing with WordPress 3.0, Beta 1

As I usually do, I switched this blog from WordPress 2.9.2 to the current 3.0 beta. I always run the beta versions and I have not yet gotten myself into a hole. It also helps that I have very good backups for the last 30 days. I re-ran my overnight backup job one more time […]

Playing with WordPress 2.9 beta

I svn’ed the latest 2.9 beta on my blog, so far so good. It’s visually the same as 2.8 so I think user acceptance will be good.

Running Firefox 3.5 beta 4

I’m now using Firefox 3.5 beta 4. They bumped up the version from 3.1 beta 3 to 3.5 beta 4. Beta 3 worked really well so I expect beta 4 to be “betterer”.

Firefox 3.1 beta 3 looks good

Firefox 3.0.x has a bug in it’s javascript handling that makes Flickr go insane for some people who use Nvidia drivers. I had tried an earlier beta and was disappointed to see that the bug was not addressed. I’ve been using beta 3 and I have not been able to reproduce the bug. The javascript […]
