Varnish Dry on Wink'd 1.6 #

by why in inspect

There’s nothing more satisfying than watching a flurry of winks land on a blog that has just closed its comments. Like here. A two page jeremiad on the relief of closing comments and we’re still yuckin away.

There’s more:

  • A somebody called boxcarrobert started a blog for newbies who want to climb on. See here: Wink’d.
  • Hoodwink’d 1.6 is out. You can now theme Hoodwink’d using very simple templates. This isn’t a frivolous feature, guys. I broke things into a couple templates and it just happened. For the scoop, there’s an article on Wasteland. (Is blank unless you wink.)

Great thing about the themes: you can call all the Greasemonkey functions from right there, so editing hacks and buddy list hacks are well within the grasp of most druids with traditionally-sized forearms.

Aha! Now 1.7 is immediately out. With a debugging theme and some bugfixes to URL handling.

Okay, spin it again.

I wink and wasteland has always been nil for me.

I did the voodoo dance of upgrading everything (the monkey and wink) and everything seems to be happy now.

I installed user.js several times, now it seems to be working. However, I can’t wink because I’m getting “no such user found” errors.

And, spin again. This should be the one. Oh and you can alter your theme settings on your profile page now.

make sure to update your hoodwink user profile, provide the default theme url http://hoodwink.d/themes/1/

once set, winks worked again.
