Happy birthday and a new book

March 7th, 2006. Tagged: News/personal, phpBB

phpbb-guide.jpgToday my blog turns 1 year, hence a few hiccups with the DNS change and the migration to a new server (thanks, Eric Gruber for the heads-up).

Blog stats: 85 posts and 183 comments(thanks everyone!), contained within 19 categories. Actually this post's ID is 100, but I have a few drafts lying around...

I started this blog as a diary while preparing for the Zend PHP exam, hoping that others will benefit. Now it's more like a little bit of this, a little bit of that, web-dev stuff. Anyway, hoping I'll post more this next year. Actually 85 posts is about once a 4 days, hmm, not bad, I thought I was lazier than this.

So celebrating the blog's first day I treated it to a nice new theme, designed by Marco and ported to WordPress by Christoph. Nice, thanks guys for you work!... I also updated to WordPress 2, very slick.
(Marco has also published a post about my blog, that's very, very flattering...)

And as another present, I saw that the second phpBB book is out! It's a scaled down version of the first, basically without the more advanced programming chapters and it comes at a much lower price.

  1. Looking smooth! ;)

    Happy birthday phpied.com!

  2. There seems to be some weird problem with single quotes. I originally tried to post the comment with a single quote but that did not quite work….

  3. Very nice new layout, and congrats!

  4. There is something going on with the quotes, too much escaping I think, when you do the AJAX stuff. Happens when I tried searching for a single quote, or type a quote in the comments and preview…

    I’ll take a look unless Cristoph fixes it before that ;)

  5. Reverted back to the old look (almost). I was just missing some stuff I’m used to… small stuff like links to edit post and stuff.

  6. I liked the Lush layout better… :(

  7. Yep, Ryan, so did I. Only there was a few mior things with the AJAX stuff – the comments preview and the search. I’ll give it another go in a few weeks I guess.

  8. Happy birthday phpied.com!
