Just a quick note; WordPress 2.3.1 adds support for WLW Keywords.
Some nomenclature changes – tags to keywords; but it works just great.
Here are the Keywords in WLW:
… and the corresponding tags in WordPress:

I’ve been hosting a family blog and photo site for a good friend for over a year.
They decided recently to ‘lock down’ the site and restrict access to both the blog and the photos to family and friends only.
I spent some of yesterday doing this.
I’ve extensively use WPG2 to integrate WordPress and Gallery2 – and I use the permissions and roles within Gallery2 to successfully limit access to pictures. The most striking example of this is with my sisters Cub Scout web site; non members can read blog posts; but not view pictures.
Securing the WordPress side was a little more tricky. Drupal has a very strong permissions module -especially useful for the anonymous user. Nothing like that for WordPress.
In the end I used the post-levels plugin from Filipe Fortes – it needed some SQL mungling to work with WordPress 2.3 – but the end results were pretty good.

I’ve just updated most of the hosted blogs to WordPress 2.3 – so far so good.
I need to update the integrated photo stuff to Gallery 2.2 as well – that’s going to be a lot more involved and needs some good planning and change control.

Away from home and the WordPress updates come in..
2.2.3 is a security update; also 2.3 Release Candidate 1 should be out tomorrow.
I also bumped the version of subscribe2 on the family blog – that fixed a lot of problems 🙂

The paint is still wet – but it looks like it works 🙂
Some plugins (feedwordpress) look like they are broken.
The tags look like they are using a similar idea to the Drupal taxonomy concepts – should be interesting.

I’ve not blogged about WordPress patches and updates for a while – I’ve been just that busy.
This weekend another two patches – for 2.2.x and 2.0.x
So far so good – easy and clean updates.
Worth an upgrade too – looking at the code changes there seems to be a lot of additional checking and url handling safety.
