My Disqus module did not seem to work any longer (the comments no longer showed up in the blog posts). I ﬁxed it hopefully by reinstalling the Disqus module, updating the Libraries API module to version 2.x (and then reconﬁguring the Disqus module).

As written in a post before, I customized the Drupal RSS feed icon by replacing it with my own PNG icon. Unfortunately, the PNG icon should be designed well and is never scalable when using pixels. Therefore, I wanted to change it to a font based (vector) icon using again free fonts from font squirrel.
Yesterday evening I decided to move from dynamic http/https switching to SSL (https) only mode. I decided to do so because I want everybody to feel free to take down her tin foil hats when visiting my site.
As I promised a while ago, I will discover some details of the current nesono Drupal 7 theme. It has been optimized towards readability and is inspired by services like pocket (read it later), readability, and the reading plugins for several browsers.
In this post, I will explain the font settings as speciﬁed in the CSS ﬁles of this site’s theme.
I just enabled support for Disqus, as I think this should be much nicer for most of you, not having to give bogus user names and homepage links etc. but simply use one Disqus account. I kept the old comments active, but did not manage to merge them into Disqus, though. Hence, you’ll probably see two comment counters on some posts sometimes.
Here is my new zen theme based on drupal 7 - to which I upgraded my old site. The theme has been completely redesigned towards good readability. Its design is encouraged by applications like Instapaper, Read it Later or browser extensions like Safari’s Reader or Chrome’s iReader.
Today I stumbled over a problem using Views in Drupal. I had two listing Views - one listing all blogs, the other all posts, which muddled up my whole page:
The navigation dropped to the bottom and the content was listed kind of hierarchical, but without following an obvious rule. I searched quite a while - made hundreds of queries to google, without success.
You can now ﬁnd a drupal upgrade script on github and for drupal modules installation! Beware that this script was written for my site setup and works for me, maybe not for you, as you have other site setups, etc. I wrote it with respect to other setups though, but will never guarantee that :) If you are reluctant, try drush instead - though drush screwed my page up at least :/
Recently, I needed to upgrade my drupal installation and was quite surprised by the complexity of a drupal system update. Therefore, I sum up the steps necessary here, to simplify the process next time.
