Mrs Spectator

Everyone’s favourite scribbler has set up Mrs Spectator’s Coffeehouse, using blogging software (MT) to create

a clearinghouse of online resources for researchers interested in the long 18thc.

This site is a modest attempt to gather links to online resources which concern the long 18thc. There are a number of excellent places where one can find academic or other resources, but none, as far as I know, which focus on quite this range of online resources, from small weblogs to large projects.

It’s a fledgling site at the moment, but I look forward to seeing it expand (not least for me to pinch new stuff…). You can send suggestions for sites that you think ought to be included to: jones [at] unbsj [dot] ca.

(WordPress trivia and request: just discovered, thanks to the logs in Spam Karma, that a trackback to a WP ‘Page’ (i.e, this one) won’t show up in the list of recent comments. Probably because the hack I’m using for that list predates the invention of Pages. Poo. It really is time I found a new plugin for this. Except that all the WP recent comments plugins I’ve found seem to display the first words of comments and I prefer to just have the title of the post… anyone know of one that will do that?)

    I don’t use it, but this one

    looks like it will get comments from static pages, and is probably configurable

    If I’m reading it right, it can be configured to do what I want. And I really do like these plugins that you can play with in the admin interface. Yay! New toy to try at the weekend! Many thanks!

    It works! (The observant will note that I’ve also taken the opportunity to make the sidebars just a teensy bit wider.) And very easy to configure too. I’m impressed. So thanks again for that.

    But eek! Where’s me gravatar gone today?
