Update to Akismet 2.1.8

The first thing I did when I went back to blogging was to make sure my WordPress installation was up-to-date so I upgraded it to the latest version which was WordPress 2.6.1. I also updated all the plugins that I have via the Plugins section of the dashboard. One of the plugins I updated was Akismet and at that time, the version available was 2.1.7. All upgrades went smoothly and I was able to post my last entry, reply to some comments, check blog stats and other stuff.

Because of the 3 month long hiatus, I wasn’t able to do much with my blog except for approving comments. Spam comments have piled up and numbered at the thousands. No matter how much spam comments I have, I always make it a habit/practice to check the spam queue for valid comments. When I was done going through the list, I clicked on the Delete All button and waited for the spam comments to disappear. It was taking quite a while to finish and at first I thought it was taking long because of the large amount of spam comments I had but when I saw that the browser stopped loading and the spam comments were still there I knew something was wrong. Anyways, I tried doing it again and ended up repeating the process like three times to no avail.

WP 2.3+ Tiger Style Admin Fix

The Tiger Style Admin was the first admin theme plugin that I came across and used in my WP dashboard. It’s also the first admin theme I featured in my Pimp My Dashboard series.

When WordPress 2.3 was released, there were many plugins that were affected like the Extended Live Archives and Ultimate Tag Warrior. The Tiger Style Admin was also affected but unlike other compatibility issues that some plugins had, it only has a couple issues with the formatting. If you have tried using Tiger Style Admin on WP 2.3+ I think you know what I’m talking about.

For the sake of those who don’t, what happened is that the WP dashboard footer which contains the WordPress version, Documentation and Feedback isn’t aligned properly and floats above it’s proper place.

The other issue is the “View site »” link in the upper right corner of the dashboard which can be barely seen because of the small font size. I was able to fix these issues by editing some code in the Tiger Style Admin’s stylesheet.
