Follow Up On The Thumb

If you’re interested, saw the doctor yesterday, confirmed there is a tiny chip out of the bottom of my thumb, the tip bone back near the joint. No need to cut it open to get it out, thankfully. Lots of bruising, ligaments a bit tight. Some swelling. Healing pretty good. Needed lots of pain meds […]

Quicktags For Comments

Just a quick word, ability to do quick tags, things like blockquote, link, bold, etc, for the comments has been turned off for the moment. It is an old, old plugin, which is causing issues with the PHP server. I’ll see if there is something else, though, I am looking to start using Disqus soon. […]

New Aquarium!

I was actually visiting the parents from Wednesday, came back Saturday afternoon. It’s a good thing I did. The plane was way late leaving Trenton due to thunderstorms, and I walked in to check my two tanks. Notice a little water around the edge of the 10 gallon, a nice Marineland with the day/night type […]

Mobile Theme Temporarily Disabled (Update) Back On

I’ve temporarily turned off the jetpack mobile theme, because it’s restricting comments, even my own when logged in. Don’t have time at the moment to fix it. Update: turned back on. I had to disable the ability “Let readers use WordPress.com, Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ accounts to comment”. It was causing an error about outside […]

Is Pirate’s Cove Secure?

One of y’all reached out and asked me about the security message that you can see up in the browser bar, which reads “Your connection to this site is not fully secure. Attackers at this site might be able to see the images you’re looking at on this site and trick you by modifying them.” […]

Note On Privacy Policy And Logging In

With the new 4.6.9 WordPress, it was made to be compliant with European Union privacy rules. You’ll notice that there is a new privacy policy in the top bar with all the other Pages. Though it’s kinda bare bones. My privacy policy is basically “I don’t give your stuff to anyone else.” You’ll also notice […]

Quick Note On The Emoticons And Quick Tags

If you’ve enjoyed the special emoticons for the comments, well, you won’t be seeing anything other than the base ones you see right now. The plugin, called WP-Monalisa, will not allow for the uploading of the extra ones I added in, and believe me, I’ve tried. I can’t even deleted the plugin. Maybe things will […]
