  • Blog Post: dasBlog 1.7 released

    Well, I'm a bit late to the party... but as Scott announced , dasBlog 1.7 is finished. There are numerous and substantial improvements in this version.

  • Blog Post: Referral Spam and Movable Type Blacklist

    Well, just in time for a wave of referral spam that is hitting my blog (mostly from http://www.ownsthis.com ) I spent part of today writing a class that can consume the Movable Type Blacklist .

  • Blog Post: RSS xhtml:body

    A while ago there was some hubub about support for xhtml:body in the RSS item tag. Since all RSS aggregators must support the description tag, which contains all the escaped html content of the post, having another tag in the RSS feed that duplicates all this content into a tag that only some RSS readers...
  • Blog Post: Dying Thread on Trackbacks, Referrals and Pingbacks

    Part 2 of 2 Bug 2: TrackingHandler Thread Dies Another problem that Scott Hanselman informed me of was that he would frequently stop receiving Trackbacks, Pingbacks and Referrals on his posts.

  • Blog Post: Enclosure support in dasBlog

    Well, thanks to some encouragement from Jeff Sandquist , I just recently added Enclosure support to dasBlog. It was a bit tricky because RSS 2.0 only allows for a single enclosure per item . I didn't want to get burned by the spec changing at some point, so dasBlog actually support any number of attachments...
  • Blog Post: dasBlog 1.7 progress

    Well I plan on spending the next few days getting together a beta of dasBlog 1.7 . I've been slowly doing some work on dasBlog the past few months (emphasis on slowly). To be honest I was pretty close to closing up shop on dasBlog and eventually writing something new from scratch, mostly because I felt...
  • Blog Post: dasBlog feature: Search Result Referrers

    I have to admit, one of the more fascinating aspects of having a blog are the ways that people find it. I'm constantly amazed at how people get here. Having a good amount of Google Juice helps put some of my posts pretty high in google's results. Well because dasBlog just places all referrals together...

  • Blog Post: dasBlog 1.6.1 hotfix

    Scott Hanselman and Clemens ran into a nasty dasBlog 1.6 bug . Basically it was possible for your entry cache to get corrupted (not your entries).
