BlogBuilder update: Tag synonyms

There has been a new release of BlogBuilder today, with the following changes:

New Feature
  • You can now get URLs that AND tags together by putting a + between tags in the URL itself, such as
  • There are now agreed Tag Synonyms so the Top Tags and individual Tag pages now take into account similar tags, for example, when you go to the tag for Movie you will also see tags for Movies, Film and Films, and this is taken into account in how big "Movie" is on the Top Tags page.

  • The text on galleries has been tweaked slightly
  • Posting comments has been tweaked slightly to make it harder to "double-post"
  • When you create an entry, it should take you back to the screen that you created it from
  • There have been some design changes and fixes – this may make your custom CSS look a bit weird, or it might not.
  • You can now select a blank style (for the ultimate custom CSS'ers)

Bug fixes
  • The "My Comments" page now sorts like it says it is by default
  • The bug where Internal Trackback emails are sent many times has been fixed
  • A problem with deleting images that had been uploaded in a Zip file has been fixed
  • Tag counts in the sidebar are more accurate.

  2. Was it really undesirable to have the whole banner as a link to your blog? I liked not having to look for the title in order to link back :-( But I guess I'll have to get over it (and Mat might have to change his banner again…)

  3. you can set the display mode of the link to block and make it take the full area.

    Ah, I knew there must be a way – thanks Andy.

    #siteLogoBar a {
    display: block;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    (I have other settings like font-size: 0px; and making it the same colour as my picture in order to remove the text completely)

  5. Thanks!

  6. shouldn't need width or height values,

  7. Ah. Is this why pages such as link are not styled now?

  8. No, that appears to be an error. There's something wrong with the style markup. None of the favourites pages seem to be selecting a style and every page is listing the "warwick" and "blank" styles as alternative stylesheets.

    On favourites pages we're getting:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/blogbuilder/media/styles//style.css" title="" type="text/css" media="screen">

    Notice the double forwards slash in the href, there should be the name of the style in there. The profile and entry pages are doing it correctly.

    And these lines shouldn't be present in any of them (they don't do much, but I don't know why they're there):

    <link rel="alternate stylesheet" href="/blogbuilder/media/styles/warwick/style.css" title="Warwick Style" type="text/css" media="screen">

  10. What is the actual element name for the Tags section on the sidebar? I've tried using

    #Tags {
    display: none;

    to hide it but I can't get rid of it. Am I missing something?

  11. Mathew Mannion

    The id is #taglist, not #tags

    24 Sep 2005, 18:32

  12. cause #tags breaks interweb explorer :(

  13. Thanks, chaps.
