“We’re going to write a WordPress Plugin that makes sure Baripedia doesn’t break up every time URLs change. This plugin will replace public URLs with internal page IDs just like the original default URLs, similar to what WordPress does with its canonical redirects now, but differently. When rendering, it will replace those internal page IDs back to the current permalinks. This will make the entire site completely indifferent to the URL scheme that we choose and to page hierarchy.
Stay tuned for more news on how this breadcrumb navigation and redirection WordPress Plugin develops.
Great stuff … solid, and really well written.
p.s. almost entirely unrelated: Lifestream displays your social feeds and photos much like you would see it on many of the social networking sites. from ibegin.com … not light, and apparently it bogs some … but sure would be nice as an addition to a personalized About page, a UserProfile page.
Use Press This to clip text, images and videos from any web page. Then edit and add more straight from Press This before you save or publish it in a post on your blog.
Also of note, from BloggingPro.com: “WordPress ShowCase” – “a cool development from the WordPress.org pages. They have recently launched a section called “WordPress Showcase”, which is a page dedicated to display great WordPress implementations by users just like us”.

“I’ve recently gotten very good at using WordPress to power static websites. The reason being that recent changes to WordPress have made it really easy to do so. Most people think of WorPress as a blogging platform, and that is what it is setup to do out of the box. However, a few minor adjustments and you can hide the blog completely, or move it so that it isn’t the first thing you see when you visit the site. Used in this way WordPress becomes more than a blog; it becomes a CMS or Content Management System.
First, why would you want to use WordPress if you aren’t running a blog? For lots of reasons. In minutes you will be running a fully functional website which conforms to web standard …”
Answers to Questions about Version 2.5 « Weblogtoolscollection News by Michael H – “These questions and answers were gleaned from the wp-hackers and wp-testers e-mail lists over that last several weeks.”

I gotta tell you, on the subject of corporate culture, there is something that really really really pisses me off about that sort of document. (Who am I to talk, you ask? I’ve been working on technical documents since 1972. And I’ll say there’s only a very slight probability that you have any clue what “heavy lifting” is really all about. MIL-SPEC FMECA, NORAD/SAC comms, TELCO … mind-bendingly difficult, and all of it has to be written squeaky clean.) I don’t want to be insulting, but there’s a way of writing something in 15 minutes that leaves 90% of the readers in the dark … “hermetic” … and it could be clarified with another 30 minutes spent on clarification.
A reference document stands and works for weeks and months. “Too busy” to do it right in 45 minutes? Snotty crap … plausibly-deniable passive aggression. Take your “too busy” and shove it you.know.where.
