Apologies about Galleries/Movies
BTW, I want to apologize to everyone about the fact that the Galleries and Movies sections don’t work. (Actually, they do work in a roundabout sort of way, but it requires you to fudge with the :URL:s and that just ain’t cool.) I switched the site over a while ago to use the new “search engine friendly :URL:s that are part of :pMachine: v2.3 and you’ll see that they work fine for this main weblog.
However, there are some incredibly strange file/directory permission issues going on with some of the, well, files and directories in my account and I can’t modify those files so that they’ll work with the SE-friendly stuff. I can’t edit or delete them—neither online nor via :FTP: using more than one FTP client on more than one computer. Nevin, the server admin/guru, is clueless too, since he can apparently log in fine using my info and do whatever he needs via FTP. Not me, though. Seems it might (somehow) be a Windows vs. Mac thing. Bizarre.
Anyway, I’ve been so swamped for time lately that at first I completely forgot about the whole problem and then I didn’t have time to do anything. I may try and find some time to try and talk to Nevin and Co. about it again soon, but with the upcoming move that could be hard for a while.
If worse comes to worst, I may ask them to just nuke my whole directory structure (after backing up) and then upload everything again. I assume that would give me the correct permissions to do what I need. One can hope, at least.
