I found the modals a fab way of keeping pages tidy and when writing about DnD games they allow me to hide the hints. i found some examples, and created a page with three modals, which now seem to only display the 3rd. I would like to fix that as I think I will/might use the technique to hide the motions in “Energy, Climate Change and Just Transition”. Anyway, here are my notes and links Continue reading “Using modals on this site.”

I have a set of CA-Superproject’s installation disks and it has been an ambition of mine to see if I can run it on a modern Laptop. My edition failed to run on Windows XP and when I read about W98 and Virtual Box, I decided to see if I could install SPJ on modern desktop platform. I liked SPJ for a couple of reasons, it’s much better than MS Project, it deals with time and money and it has a PERT view which I used to prefer for project planning because it aligns with product based planning in a way that Gnatt charts don’t. Here are my notes … Continue reading “Superproject resurrection”

I had a quick look at Nextscripts: Social Network Auto Poster. It claims to be able to forward posts to other social networks. These include as targets, twitter, linkedin and facebook. The also offer Google+ but that needs an additional library which may be chargeable. I need to work on this a bit more.
Since the blog is already forwarding to Facebook and now Medium via IFFTTT, which are the most important targets and I am unsure I want everything to go through to linkedin or even twitter, this may not be as useful as I hoped. I returned to this in Aug 2016 as I was interested in occasionally forwarding my micro blog to Medium. Continue reading “Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter”
It seems that the wordpress plugin page lists those plugins held in the ./wp-content/plugins folder.
The article, What, Why, and How-To’s of Creating a Site-Specific WordPress Plugin shows how to create a container. They advise that it is located in its own directory. Doing this creates an entry in a the Plugins, installed plugins page on the dashboard.
This page at stackoverflow documents how to put a posts tag list into the article.
And this is wordpress’s documentation on the Read More functions.
