- <h1>Requirements:</h1>
- <ul>
- <li><strong>PHP4</strong> (version 4.0.6 or higher)</li>
- <li><strong>MySQL</strong> (version 3.23.23 or higher)</li>
- <li>Perl (optional - only for the spellchecker)</li>
- <li>... and a link to <a target="_blank"
- href="http://wordpress.org">http://wordpress.org</a> on your site.</li>
- </ul>
- <p>The link will help promote <a href="http://wordpress.org">WordPress</a>
-and is its only mean of promotion. </p>
- <p>WordPress is built from b2, which comes from Michel V. We
-wouldn't be here without him, so why don't you grab him something from
-his <a
- href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/registry-address-select-done/1XKLC38KDUPXR/103-8901342-4908609">wishlist</a>?</p>
- <p>This document is currently beta stage, we'll be updating it
-extensively as WordPress matures.</p>
- <h1 id="installation">Installation:</h1>
- <h2>New users: 5-minute install.</h2>
- <ol>
- <li>Unzip the package in an empty directory.</li>
- <li>Copy wp-config.sample.php to wp-config.php. Open
-wp-config.php in a text editor and modify the variables as explained in
-the comments. Comments are lines that start with # or /* or //</li>
- <li>Upload everything. This release is designed to sit in your
-root folder, IE the folder where your WordPress-powered page will
-reside.</li>
- <li>CHMOD 666 the <code>weblogs.com.changes.cache</code> file.</li>
- <li> Launch <a href="wp-admin/wp-install.php">wp-install.php</a>
-in your browser. This should setup the MySQL database for your blog. If
-there is an error, double check your wp-config.php file, and try again.
-If it fails again, please go to the <a
- href="http://wordpress.org/support/">support forums</a> and make a
-post with all the information about the failure (error messages, etc),
-and your setup (the PHP and MySQL versions on your server, and the
-browser you were using). <strong>Note the password given to you.</strong></li>
- <li> Go to <a href="b2login.php">b2login.php</a> and sign in
-with the login "admin" and the password given to you by the install
-script. Then click on the menu 'My Profile', and change the password.
-Note: you need javascript enabled to launch the profile popup window.</li>
- </ol>
- <h2>Some notes:</h2>
- <ul>
- <li>Whenever you want to post something, just open a browser
-and go to b2login.php to log in and post.</li>
- <li>You can also use a bookmarklet and/or a sidebar (IE5+/NS6+)
-to post.</li>
- <li> You can also post through the Blogger API, <a
- href="#xmlrpc">click here</a> for more info.</li>
- <li> Your site's blog is on b2.php (simple template) and
-index.php (CSS template), you can rename this file to index.php or any
-other name you fancy (provided it bears the php extension or is
-interpreted as a php file by your server).</li>
- <li> You can also copy b2.php into a new file and modify that
-new file, it will work too ;)</li>
- </ul>
- <h2>Users upgrading from b2 v0.6.1 to WordPress v0.7:</h2>
- <ul>
- <li>All you <em>really</em> have to do is replace all the
-files with newer versions and run <a href="javascript:window.close()">b2-2-wp.php</a>
-and you should be ready to go.</li>
- <li>If you're using an older version of b2, it's probably a
-good idea to upgrade to at least .6.1 before making the leap to
-WordPress.</li>
- <li>The templates are so much better, and there is so much more
-going on than before it's probably worth it to start from scratch and
-work back to your design.</li>
- <li>You <em>must</em> update your <code>wp-config.php</code>.
-There's all sort of new stuff in there.</li>
- <li>WordPress issues should be discussed in our <a
- href="http://wordpress.org/support/">support forums</a>.</li>
- <li><strong>Back up</strong> your database before you do
-anything. Yes, you. Right now.</li>
- </ul>
- <h1 id="templates">Template(s):</h1>
- <h2>First notes:</h2>
- <ul>
- <li>Enclosed is an example of a template, in the file b2.php.
-You can rename this file to "index.php"or something else (recent b2
-versions have a default index.php, which is an elaborate CSS-based
-template).</li>
- <li>You can have any number of template files, since all they
-do is extract the posts from the database.</li>
- <li>Pseudo-template for the comments is in b2comments.php. You
-needn't rename this file, but you can edit it.</li>
- <li>The only thing to remember is that it's not actually a
-template, but a PHP file that you're manipulating. So when you see
-"don't delete this line", you know you mustn't, unless you want to have
-a broken page.</li>
- <li>Required lines are: the first lines that call
-blog.header.php, the lines with the "while" statement, and the ones
-with just "}" (it ends the while loop).</li>
- <li>Between the "while" line and the "}", is the template for
-your posts.</li>
- </ul>
- <h2>Notes about parameters:</h2>
- <ol>
- <li> Some template tags can accept optional parameters between
-the parenthesis <strong>()</strong>.</li>
- <li>To add a parameter to a tag, enclose it between quotes and
-put it between the <strong>()</strong>.<br>
-Example: <code>&lt;?php my_tag("my parameter"); ?&gt;</code></li>
- <li>You may have to put several parameters, for that you
-separate them with commas.<br>
-Example: <code>&lt;?php my_tag("first param","second param"); ?&gt;</code></li>
- <li>The order of parameters is important. If a function accepts
-2 parameters and you only want to set the second one, you still have to
-provide the first one, and so on for any number of parameters.<br>
-Example: <code>&lt;?php my_tag("","second param"); ?&gt;</code></li>
- <li>Some template tags, like the_date(), display something only
-if in some conditions. They generally accept parameters to display
-something before and after them only when they display something.<br>
-Example: <code>&lt;?php the_title("&lt;h1&gt;","&lt;/h1&gt;"); ?&gt;</code>
-would display &lt;h1&gt;title of the post&lt;/h1&gt; only if the post
-has a title<br>
- <br>
- </li>
- </ol>
- <h1>Template tags:</h1>
- <blockquote> <strong>&lt;?php the_date() ?&gt;</strong> <span
- style="font-family: 'Courier New',Courrier,mono; color: rgb(255, 153, 0); font-weight: bold;">*</span><br>
-the date of the post. example: 03.07.01 (default is dd.mm.yy).<br>
-the date is displayed only on new days. for example if you got 10 posts
-on the same day, the date for this day is displayed only once.<br>
- <div class="params">Parameters:
- <ul>
- <li>format string (default: "d.m.y")</li>
- <li>string to display before the date (default is blank)</li>
- <li>string to display after the date (default is blank)</li>
- </ul>
- </div>
- <br>
- <strong>&lt;?php the_time() ?&gt;</strong><br>
-the time of the post. example: 18:37:00 (default is hh:mm:ss)<br>
- <div class="params">Parameters:
- <ul>
- <li>format string (default: "H:i:s")</li>
- </ul>
- </div>
- <br>
- <strong>Note:</strong> you can change the way the date &amp;
-time are displayed in the Options page.<br>
-once you understand the format strings for the date &amp; time
-(explained in the Options page), you can change the display right on
-the template: for example, <strong>the_date(</strong><em>"d.m.Y"</em><strong>)</strong>
-to have dates like 25.12.2001, <strong>the_time(</strong><em>"B"</em><strong>)</strong>
-to have Swatch Internet Time.<br>
-If you change the display of the date on the template, changing it from
-the options page won't have any effect.br /&gt; <br>
- <strong>Note about the_date():</strong> if you want all your
-posts to bear the date, you'll have to use the_time() instead, with a
-date format string. for example, to have all your posts show like
-"25.12.2001 @ 8:04:50 AM" you'll have the_time("d.m.Y @ g:i:s A"). you
-can also repeat this template tag 2 times with 2 different formats:
-the_time("d.m.Y") for the date, and then later the_time("g:i:s A") for
-the time of the day.<br>
- <br>
- <strong>&lt;?php the_weekday() ?&gt;</strong><br>
-This displays the day of the week when the post was made. It works like
-the_time(), in that it would appear at every post. Weekdays can be
-obtained with a custom date format string in the_time() or the_date(),
-but for non-english weekdays you have to edit day-month-trans.php<br>
- <strong>Note: this tag is OBSOLETE, the_time() and the_date()
-now use weekdays/months from day-month-trans.php</strong><br>
- <br>
- <strong>&lt;?php the_weekday_date() ?&gt;</strong> <span
- style="font-family: Courier New,Courrier,mono; color: rgb(255, 153, 0); font-weight: bold;">*</span><br>
-Like the_weekday(), but works like the_date(), in that it would appear
-only on new days.<br>
- <strong>Note: this tag is OBSOLETE, the_time() and the_date()
-now use weekdays/months from day-month-trans.php</strong><br>
- <div class="params">Parameters:
- <ul>
- <li>string to display before the weekday_date (default is
-blank)</li>
- <li>string to display after the weekday_date (default is
-blank)</li>
- </ul>

- <br>
- <strong>&lt;?php the_content() ?&gt; <span
- style="font-family: Courier New,Courrier,mono; color: rgb(255, 153, 0); font-weight: bold;">*</span><br>
- </strong>The text of the post.<br>
- <div class="params">Parameters:
- <ul>
- <li>text to display for the link to the complete entry
-(default is <em>'(more...)'</em>)</li>
- <li>0 or 1, whether you want to show the teaser message or
-not, when showing the complete text (default is 1)</li>
- <li>a filename of another template, if you want the 'more'
-link to link to a different template for the complete text of the
-extended entry (default is the current template)</li>
- </ul>
- </div>
- <br>
-For example <em>&lt;?php the_content("read more","0","blah.php") ?&gt;</em>
-would display a link to <em>blah.php</em>, with the link text <em>read
-more</em>, and won't display the teaser message.<br>

+ <li><strong>MySQL</strong> (version 3.23.23 or higher)</li>
+ <li>... and a link to <a href="http://wordpress.org">http://wordpress.org</a> on your site.</li>
+</ul>
+<p>The link will help promote <a href="http://wordpress.org">WordPress</a> and is its only mean of promotion. </p>
+<p>WordPress is built from b2, which comes from Michel V. We wouldn't be here without him, so why don't you grab him something from his <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/registry-address-select-done/1XKLC38KDUPXR/103-8901342-4908609">wishlist</a>? You can also support the <a href="http://wordpress.org/about/">WordPress developers</a>. </p>
+<p>This document is currently <em>beta</em> stage, we'll be updating it extensively as WordPress matures. There is also <a href="http://wordpress.org/docs/">online documentation</a> under development. </p>
+<h1 id="installation">Installation:</h1>
+<h2>New users: 5-minute install.</h2>
+<ol>
+ <li>Unzip the package in an empty directory.</li>
+ <li>Copy wp-config.sample.php to wp-config.php. Open wp-config.php in a text editor and modify the variables as explained in the comments. Comments are lines that start with <code>/*</code> or <code>//</code></li>
+ <li>Upload everything. This release is designed to sit in your root folder, IE the folder where your WordPress-powered page will reside.</li>
+ <li>The weblogs.com cache file needs to be writable by the web server. <a href="http://www.evolt.org/article/A_quick_and_dirty_chmod_Tutorial/18/541/">CHMOD 666</a> the <code>weblogs.com.changes.cache</code> file. </li>
+ <li> Launch <a href="wp-admin/wp-install.php">wp-install.php</a> in your browser. This should setup the MySQL database for your blog. If there is an error, double check your wp-config.php file, and try again. If it fails again, please go to the <a href="http://wordpress.org/support/">support forums</a> and make a post with all the information about the failure (error messages, etc), and your setup (the PHP and MySQL versions on your server, and the browser you were using). <strong>Note the password given to you.</strong></li>
+ <li> Go to <a href="b2login.php">b2login.php</a> and sign in with the login "admin" and the password given to you by the install script. Then click on the menu 'My Profile', and change the password. Note: you need javascript enabled to launch the profile popup window.</li>
+</ol>
+<h2>Some notes:</h2>
+<ul>
+ <li>Whenever you want to post something, just open a browser and go to b2login.php to log in and post.</li>
+ <li>You can also use a bookmarklet and/or a sidebar (IE5+/NS6+) to post.</li>
+ <li> You can also post through the Blogger API, <a href="#xmlrpc">click here</a> for more info.</li>
+ <li> Your site's blog is on b2.php (simple template) and index.php (CSS template), you can rename this file to index.php or any other name you fancy (provided it bears the php extension or is interpreted as a php file by your server).</li>
+ <li> You can also copy b2.php into a new file and modify that new file, it will work too ;)</li>
+</ul>
+<h2>Upgrading from b2 v0.6.1 to WordPress v0.7:</h2>
+<ul>
+ <li>All you <em>really</em> have to do is replace all the files with newer versions and run <a href="javascript:window.close()">b2-2-wp.php</a> and you should be ready to go.</li>
+ <li>If you're using an older version of b2, it's probably a good idea to upgrade to at least .6.1 before making the leap to WordPress.</li>
+ <li>The templates are better and structured slightly differently, so it might be worth it to start from scratch and work back to your design.</li>
+ <li>You <em>must</em> update <code>wp-config.php</code>.</li>
+ <li>WordPress issues should be discussed in our <a href="http://wordpress.org/support/">support forums</a>.</li>
+ <li><strong>Back up</strong> your database before you do anything. Yes, you. Right now.</li>
+</ul>
+<h1 id="templates">Templates:</h1>
+<h2>First notes:</h2>
+<ul>
+ <li>Enclosed is an example of a template, in the file b2.php. You can rename this file to "index.php"or something else (recent b2 versions have a default index.php, which is an elaborate CSS-based template).</li>
+ <li>You can have any number of template files, since all they do is extract the posts from the database.</li>
+ <li>Pseudo-template for the comments is in b2comments.php. You needn't rename this file, but you can edit it.</li>
+ <li>The only thing to remember is that it's not actually a template, but a PHP file that you're manipulating. So when you see "don't delete this line", you know you mustn't, unless you want to have a broken page.</li>
+ <li>Required lines are: the first lines that call blog.header.php, the lines with the "while" statement, and the ones with just "}" (it ends the while loop).</li>
+ <li>Between the "while" line and the "}", is the template for your posts.</li>
+</ul>
+<h2>Notes about parameters:</h2>
+<ol>
+ <li> Some template tags can accept optional parameters between the parentheses <strong>()</strong>.</li>
+ <li>To add a parameter to a tag, enclose it between quotes and put it between the <strong>()</strong>.<br />
+ Example: <code>&lt;?php my_tag('my parameter'); ?&gt;</code></li>
+ <li>You may have to put several parameters, for that you separate them with commas.<br />
+ Example: <code>&lt;?php my_tag("first param", "second param"); ?&gt;</code></li>
+ <li>The order of parameters is important. If a function accepts 2 parameters and you only want to set the second one, you still have to provide the first one, and so on for any number of parameters.<br />
+ Example: <code>&lt;?php my_tag("", "second param"); ?&gt;</code></li>
+ <li>Some template tags, like the_date(), display something only if in some conditions. They generally accept parameters to display something before and after them only when they display something.<br />
+ Example: <code>&lt;?php the_title("&lt;h1&gt;", "&lt;/h1&gt;"); ?&gt;</code> would display &lt;h1&gt;title of the post&lt;/h1&gt; only if the post has a title </li>
+</ol>
+<h1>Template tags:</h1>
+ <strong>&lt;?php the_date() ?&gt;</strong> <br />
+the date of the post. example: 03.07.01 (default is dd.mm.yy).<br />
+the date is displayed only on new days. for example if you got 10 posts on the same day, the date for this day is displayed only once.<br />
+<div class="params">Parameters:
+ <ul>
+ <li>format string (default: "d.m.y")</li>
+ <li>string to display before the date (default is blank)</li>
+ <li>string to display after the date (default is blank)</li>
+ </ul>
+</div>
+<br />
+<strong>&lt;?php the_time() ?&gt;</strong><br />
+the time of the post. example: 18:37:00 (default is hh:mm:ss)<br />
+<div class="params">Parameters:
+ <ul>
+ <li>format string (default: "H:i:s")</li>
+ </ul>
+</div>
+<br />
+<strong>Note:</strong> you can change the way the date &amp; time are displayed in the Options page.<br />
+once you understand the format strings for the date &amp; time (explained in the Options page), you can change the display right on the template: for example, <strong>the_date(</strong><em>"d.m.Y"</em><strong>)</strong> to have dates like 25.12.2001, <strong>the_time(</strong><em>"B"</em><strong>)</strong> to have Swatch Internet Time.<br />
+If you change the display of the date on the template, changing it from the options page won't have any effect.br /&gt; <br />
+<strong>Note about the_date():</strong> if you want all your posts to bear the date, you'll have to use the_time() instead, with a date format string. for example, to have all your posts show like "25.12.2001 @ 8:04:50 AM" you'll have the_time("d.m.Y @ g:i:s A"). you can also repeat this template tag 2 times with 2 different formats: the_time("d.m.Y") for the date, and then later the_time("g:i:s A") for the time of the day.<br />
+<br />
+<strong>&lt;?php the_weekday() ?&gt;</strong><br />
+This displays the day of the week when the post was made. It works like the_time(), in that it would appear at every post. Weekdays can be obtained with a custom date format string in the_time() or the_date(), but for non-english weekdays you have to edit day-month-trans.php<br />
+<strong>Note: this tag is OBSOLETE, the_time() and the_date() now use weekdays/months from day-month-trans.php</strong><br />
+<br />
+<strong>&lt;?php the_weekday_date() ?&gt;</strong> <br />
+Like the_weekday(), but works like the_date(), in that it would appear only on new days.<br />
+<strong>Note: this tag is OBSOLETE, the_time() and the_date() now use weekdays/months from day-month-trans.php</strong><br />
+<div class="params">Parameters:

+For example <em>&lt;?php the_content("read more","0","blah.php") ?&gt;</em> would display a link to <em>blah.php</em>, with the link text <em>read more</em>, and won't display the teaser message.<br />
+<br />
+ To enter an extended entry, just type <em>&lt;!--more--&gt;</em> in your entry. The part before that comment is the teaser, the part after it is the extended entry. To force the extended entry not to show the teaser message, type <em>&lt;!--noteaser--&gt;</em> somewhere in your entry.<br />
+<br />
+ To enter an entry with several pages, just type <em>&lt;!--nextpage--&gt;</em> in your entry to start a new page.<br />

+<p><strong>&lt;?php include("b2calendar.php") ?&gt;</strong><br />
+ this will include a table with the current month's calendar, each day when you posted shows a link to this day's posts. You can customise this table with CSS classes: </p>

- <p>Most of the time you won't have to do anything about it, but
-if you want to know how it works, it's here:</p>
- <p>How to use the query string:</p>
- <blockquote> index.php<strong>?m=200107</strong> will display the
-month of July 2001.<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?m=20010701</strong> will display all posts from July
-1st, 2001.<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?w=20</strong> will display the posts from the 20th
-week of the year, where January 1st is in the first week (according to
-PHP).<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?p=50</strong> will display the post labeled #50 in
-the database.<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?s=blue+house</strong> will display the posts that
-match the search request "blue house".<br>
-here is the code for a simple search box:<br>
- <br>
- <code>&lt;form name="searchform" action="&lt;?php echo
-$PHP_SELF ?&gt;" method="get"&gt;<br>
-&lt;input type="text" name="s" /&gt;<br>
-&lt;input type="submit" name="submit" value="search" /&gt;<br>
-&lt;/form&gt; </code><br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?cat=1</strong> will display all posts that belong to
-category #1 (1 is the default). you can add/rename/delete categories
-from b2's interface.<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?author=1</strong> will display all posts from the
-author #1<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?p=50&amp;c=1</strong> will display the comments and a
-form to add a comment below the post.<br>
-you should use this variable only with <strong>p=</strong>, example:
-index.php<strong>?p=50&amp;c=1</strong>.<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?p=50&amp;tb=1</strong> will display the TrackBacks to
-the post #50.<br>
-you should use this variable only with <strong>p=</strong>, example:
-index.php<strong>?p=50&amp;tb=1</strong>.<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?p=50&amp;pb=1</strong> will display the Pingbacks to
-the post #50.<br>
-you should use this variable only with <strong>p=</strong>, example:
-index.php<strong>?p=50&amp;pb=1</strong>.<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?p=50&amp;more=1</strong> will display the extended
-entries' text. this, too, should be used only with <strong>p=</strong>,
-for individual entries.<br>
- <br>
-index.php<strong>?p=50&amp;page=1</strong> will display the first page
-of post #50. this, again, should be used only with <strong>p=</strong>,
-for individual entries.<br>
- <br>
-You can also mix these variables, example: index.php<strong>?m=200107&amp;s=hotdog</strong>
-will display the posts that match the search request "hotdog", but only
-in July 2001. </blockquote>

- <h1>XML-RPC Interface:</h1>
- <p>WordPress has an XMLRPC interface. Currently supported APIs
-are the <a href="http://www.blogger.com/developers/api/1_docs/">Blogger
-API</a>, <a href="http://www.xmlrpc.com/metaWeblogApi">metaWeblog API</a>,
-and the <a
- href="http://www.movabletype.org/docs/mtmanual_programmatic.html">MovableType
-API</a>. There are talks about a new API that would cover a lot of
-weblog/CMS systems in the future: when it's ready, WordPress will
-support it.</p>
- <p> The <a href="http://www.blogger.com/developers/api/1_docs/">Blogger
-API</a>
-has been completely emulated on WordPress, with some little differences:</p>
- <ul>
- <li>using <em>blogger.getRecentPosts</em> with the number
-'zero' returns all posts in the blog</li>
- <li><em>blogger.getTemplate</em> fetches your file
-$blogfilename (as specified in the config), while <em>blogger.setTemplate</em>
-overwrites it with the edited data</li>
- <li><em>blogger.getUsersBlogs</em> is a dummy function that
-returns '1' and $blogname, since b2 supports only one blog as of now</li>
- </ul>
- <p>If you use blogger.newPost, your post is submitted without
-title and in category #1.</p>
- <p> However, you can type &lt;title&gt;my title&lt;/title&gt;
-and/or &lt;category&gt;2&lt;category&gt; in the body of your post to
-make its title be 'my title' and its category be #2 (refer to your
-categories section to find out the ID numbers of the categories). b2
-would then delete that extra info from the body of your post once it is
-posted.<br>
- </p>
- <p>The <a href="http://www.xmlrpc.com/metaWeblogApi">metaWeblog</a>
-and <a
- href="http://www.movabletype.org/docs/mtmanual_programmatic.html">MovableType</a>
-APIs are currently supported
-with the following exceptions:<br>
- </p>
- <ul>
- <li>metaWeblog.newMediaObject,&nbsp;
-mt.getRecentPostTitles,&nbsp; and mt.getTrackbackPings are not yet
-implemented</li>
- <li>mt.supportedTextFilters is a dummy stub function that
-returns an empty string</li>
- <li>keywords are not supported in the MovableType API</li>
- </ul>
- <br>
-Extended entries in the <a
- href="http://www.movabletype.org/docs/mtmanual_programmatic.html">MovableType
-API</a> are automatically converted
-to/from the WordPress &lt;!--more--&gt; tag.<br>
- <p>You can now post to your b2 blog with tools like <a
- href="http://blogbuddy.sourceforge.net">BlogBuddy</a>, <a
- href="http://bloggar.com/">Bloggar</a>, <a
- href="http://www.ubique.ch/wapblogger/">WapBlogger</a> (post from your
-Wap cellphone!), <a href="http://radio.userland.com">Radio Userland</a>
-(which means you can use Radio's email-to-blog feature), <a
- href="http://www.zempt.com/">Zempt</a>, <a
- href="http://www.newzcrawler.com/">NewzCrawler</a>, and other tools
-that support
-the Blogging APIs ! :)</p>
- <p>Your XMLRPC server/path are as described here: if you login to
-b2 on http://example.com/me/b2login.php, then you have:</p>
- <ul>
- <li>server: http://example.com/ (some tools will just want the
-'example.com' hostname part)<br>
- </li>
- <li>path: /me/xmlrpc.php</li>
- <li>complete URL (just in case):
-http://example.com/me/xmlrpc.php</li>
- </ul>
- <p>There's also a b2-specific method: b2.getCategories. Request
-it with 3 strings: blog_ID (use '1'), username, password. The response
-is an array of structs with strings categoryID and categoryName.<br>
- <br>
- </p>
- <p>&nbsp;</p>
- <a name="postviaemail"></a>
- <h1>Post via Email:</h1>
- <p>You can post news from an email client!<br>
-But first you'll have to edit the options on the options screen,
-filling the appropriate values for your POP3 email account (this
-interface doesn't support IMAP yet, only POP3, sorry).</p>
- <p> Once you have edited the options, you can make your webserver
-execute b2mail.php every set amount of time (depending on your host's
-performance, this script can be resource intensive, so don't make it
-run every minute or you'll be kicked).</p>
- <p>You can do it with Cron-jobs, or if your host doesn't support
-it you can look into the various website-monitoring services, and make
-them check your b2mail.php URL.</p>
- <h2> Preliminary advice:</h2>
- <p> It is strongly advised to send your email as text-only
-(Outlook and Outlook Express default to 'html', which may cause
-problems), but HTML email could work (the script would strip all your
-html tags though...).</p>
- <p>It is also advised not to use your public email address, but
-create a new one especially for this script. If you use your public
-email address and the script goes crazy posting every email on your
-blog and deleting all your emails, I can't take responsibility for this.</p>
- <p>Make sure you delete any email sent to your blog in your
-'Sent' folder too, just in case (you don't want someone to find your
-login and password in the 'Sent' folder).</p>
- <p> The script will <i>delete</i> the emails that were used to
-post stuff on your weblog if it successfully posted your stuff. If it
-didn't manage to post, the email is not deleted.</p>
- <h2>How to post:</h2>
- <p>Now to post something, here's how your email should look like:</p>
- <div class="params"> <b>To:</b> address@example.com <span
- style="color: rgb(153, 153, 153);">(you set it in the config file)</span><br>
- <b>Subject:</b> blog:the post's title <span
- style="color: rgb(153, 153, 153);">(you can change 'blog:' in the
-config file)</span><br>
- <b>Body:</b><br>
-login:password <span style="color: rgb(153, 153, 153);">(example: <i>Jack:Starwars</i>)</span><br>
-The content of the post, blah blah blah.<br>
-More blah blah. ___ </div>
- <p> Subject must start with 'blog:', or any string you set in the
-config file (so that the script doesn't check EVERY email in your
-mailbox).</p>
- <p>Body's first line must always be login:password, else the
-script will just skip the email.<br>
-If you don't use '___' (or any body terminator that you set in the
-config file), the script will post the whole body, which is not what
-you want if you send email with Yahoo or Hotmail (you don't want their
-ads on your blog, do you ?).</p>
- <h2>Special cases for mobile phone email:</h2>
- <p> Some mobile phone service providers may allow you to send
-email with your mobile phone or PDA, but on such devices you can't
-always include line breaks. In such case, you have to set <i>use_phoneemail
-= true</i> in the options, and then here's how you write the email:</p>
- <div class="params"> <b>To:</b> address@example.com<br>
- <b>Subject:</b> blog:the post's title <b>:::</b><br>
- <b>Body:</b><br>
-login:password <b>:::</b> The content of the post, blah blah blah.___ </div>
- <p>You will have to append ':::' (or whatever string you set in
-the config file) after the subject, and after the login:password.<br>
- <br>
-Some mobile phone service providers may not allow you to set a subject,
-and they'll make the subject be the first characters of the body, in
-which case you would send an email like this:</p>
- <div class="params"> <b>To:</b> address@example.com<br>
- <b>Body:</b><br>
-blog:the post's title <b>:::</b> login:password <b>:::</b> The
-content of the post, blah blah blah.___ </div>
- <p>&nbsp;</p>
- <a name="notes"></a>
- <h1>Notes: </h1>
- <p>On multi-user:</p>
- <p>New users can register with <code>b2register.php</code>. Then
-you (as an admin) click the "+" next to their name on the Team page in
-admin to upgrade their level to 1 or more, so they can post. If you
-don't want an user to post anymore, just click "-" until their level is
-0.</p>
- <p>Note: you can now disable users registration altogether from
-the config file.</p>
- <p><strong>Levels</strong>:</p>
- <ul>
- <li> 0 - new user: can't post.</li>
- <li>1 - user: can post &amp; edit/delete their own posts.</li>
- <li>3 &amp; more - admin: can post, edit/delete other people's
-posts, and change the options.</li>
- <li>Any user whose level is higher than 1, can edit/delete the
-posts and change the level of users whose level is inferior. Example: a
-level 2 user is not an admin, but can edit the posts of level 1 users,
-and up the level of a new user from 0 to 1.</li>
- </ul>
- <p>Usually, you'll want to have a team of only level 1 users
-except you. ;)</p>
- <p><strong>Note:</strong> you can modify an option on the option
-screens, to enable new users to post once they've registered.</p>
- <p>If you don't want users to register on your blog at all, just
-delete b2register.php once you've registered your user account. </p>
- <h1><br>
-Final notes:</h1>
- <ul>
- <li>WordPress is functional, but a lot of coding and code
-clean-up remain to be done.</li>
- <li>If you've got suggestions, ideas, or comments, or if you
-found a bug, why not joining us in the <a
- href="http://wordpress.org/support/">Support Forums</a>?</li>
- <li>If you can code in PHP, you'll see the structure of
-WordPress is flexible enough to allow for more functions and sections
-to be added.</li>
