My Netfirms Permalinks Are Pretty

[This post it outdated! Please see my WordPress plugin that enables pretty permalinks. This post is for informational purposes only]

OK, so this is mostly for any other users who maybe on Netfirms like me.

For some weird reason, Netfirms does not support “pretty” permalinks in WordPress, despite the fact that they claim to have Apache mod_rewrite enabled (Maybe because AllowOveride isn’t enabled, who knows). That’s why for the last month all of my links have been that crazy, ?p=123 or whatever the heck the post number was. Well, after Netfirms Tech Support was of no help (as usual), I decided to do my own research and hack around a bit. 5 hours later, viola! Pretty permalinks!

Simple Mailing Web App

Greetings internet slaves! OK, well, not really slaves, but you get the point…

So for the past 8 months or so I’ve been attending a small college and career group at the local church down the street from where I live. It’s been a pretty solid group (well, that is until the 19 year old army took over) and Laure from www.axiomdesignworks.com and myself have decided to get involved and build their website for them so they can finally move into what I like to call, 00 century.

Enemies of Metal

Well, it’s been a week since I’ve launched the new, and ever so improved Joelika.com, so I felt as if it was time to write a new post for you utter enjoyment. Over the past 6 years I’ve been creating Joelika.com, I have always made it a point to not update about my personal life. Oh sure, I would rant quite often, but it’s not like I would tell you about my freakishly long mutant toe or anything (and if I did, well, I would do it in a completely humorous manor). But I am going to break that rule a little today and write a little bit about me since I pretty much dropped off the face of the earth over the past 9 months.

Welcome To Steel Knuckels

That’s right my friends! Welcome to the new (and not really approved) Joelika.com. Hopefully everything is working pretty well, since I didn’t really get a chance to test this before making it live (come on, you know I totally busted this out of my butt this weekend!). I did check it in Safari, FireFox, and Camino, so if you have one of those browsers, javascript turned on, and at least Flash 7 installed, you should be golden. If you are using IE 6, well, I can’t say for sure how it will look. I did put it a lot of hacks so hopefully it degrades well, but like I said, I have no clue. I’ll check it out tomorrow when I’m at work to see how I did.
