I just updated to version-1.5. This update includes numerous UI tweaks, expanded results per page with excerpts, links to tags, and a new structure for the pages.

It comes with absolutely gorgeous themes; I’m partial to dark themes and they had a great [...]

I fixed the “phantom category” problem. I either added each post to an existing category, or I deleted the post. Actually, I deleted about half my posts. I lost all the pictures when I messed up my upgrade a while back [ note to self: look for a way to setup the /upload directories to [...]

====== much later. trying to get gnome working in afterstep. When gdm invokes afterstep, its not calling up the gnome daemons. Where is afterstep getting called? that’s the question of the century.
