I’ve been using dasBlog as the engine for this site for many years. It’s had it’s share of issues, but it was easy to install and low maintenance, so I’ve stuck with it. My biggest complaints were that if you left a comment you’d get an error screen (even though the comment was saved) and even worse, I never got notified of the comment, so unless I was actively browsing my old posts (I don’t go back very far) I never saw comments.
Well today I noticed that dasBlog has had at least a bit of activity in it’s code base, so I decided to upgrade (from 1.7 to 3.0). It seems that everything that was working before is still working and now I actually get emailed when a comment is left, so maybe I’ll be a little more responsive, especially to comments on older entries. If you run into anything that doesn’t work, please let me know.
