Making changes to the blog
When making changes to the blog, keep the following notes in mind:
- The blog runs as www-data on linode.openhatch.org
- It lives in /var/www/blog/
If you've made some changes to the blog backend, GET the following resources using wget and make sure they don't fail:
Do a GET of them in a web browser, too, to make sure the styling looks okay.
Then, log into the backend. (Make sure to log out if you are already logged-in, so that the test is a high-quality test.)
Make sure it still accepts your admin username and that clicking around the admin doesn't show any obvious problems.
Do a test file upload, of an image. If you're looking for a good image to add to our blog as a media file, I recommend this 1x1 GIF.
Finally, make a test comment. This is a good URL for that:
