Dammit, WordPress

Few things enrage me more than wrestling with blog software. All I want to do is fix the archive links so that outside references to popular posts imported from movable type still work. Messing about with mod-rewrite, random plugins and generally wasting my morning are not part of that agenda. All it needs is one extra field that I can manually type my own permalink into that would map to a specific post. I don’t NEED an algorithmic solution here, that’s the beauty of URLs. They’re just text! If only this blasted software would get out of the way and do the simplest thing that could possibly work.

  1. Hi Darren,

    Sorry to bother you, and indeed to place this message in inappropriate location, but I am pulling my hair out at the moment, attempting to get a JDOM XPath to select elements in an unprefixed namespace, exactly what you describe in your post https://darrenhobbs.com/?tag=xpath

    This looks like it should work, and is how I’d implement in xsl or .net, but does not seem to work in JDOM. Just wondered, could you tell me if that code actually worked for you?

    Kind Regards,
