Ok. I’ve upgraded my blog to Mephisto Edge.
It’s been something like nine months since the last official 0.7.3 Noh-Varr release and in Rails time that’s a pretty long time. There’s a lot been happening in Rails Edge and it just made sense to catch up with these things a bit.
So I decided to invest the time to upgrade, do some fixes and cleanup and generally bring my blog setup in a better shape again. If you’re running Mephisto and consider an upgrade, some of the following observations and notes might be of interest for you.Read the rest of this entry

I’ve been asked for instructions on how to use the Mephisto pagination plugin that I’ve published last week. Well, that makes sense :-) So there you go.
The plugin allows you to add very basic pagination functionality to your article section pages (that is, pages like your blog homepage, sub-section pages etc.). Right now, there are only means to add a “older posts” and “newer posts” links to access the previous and next paginated articles list’s pages - you can see this at the bottom of my blog’s homepage.Read the rest of this entry

When I switched to Mephisto last month I could not believe my eyes that there’s no post pagination on any of the section pages that list blog posts besides the archives.
Since, I wondered if that’s probably just a bit too closeminded to consider this a usability breakdown or something like this … might just be a matter of taste, too. But then I happened to run in this very issue twice the other day.
I consider this functionality crucial because it’s a well-known usability pattern all across the web these days. Millions of blogging engines do it this way (don’t they?), so it should be default in Mephisto, too, IMO … but actually it isn’t. So I decided to follow Rick’s suggestion and write a plugin to implement this.Read the rest of this entry
