Welcome to the new Cele|bitchy, bitches!

Cele|bitchy is now run by WordPress, and sports a lot of new features.
Please test stuff out and let me know if you find any bugs or if you find anything hard to use or confusing.

Cele|bitchy’s New Features:

  • You can edit comments up to 30 minutes after they’re made
  • You can add a little icon next to your name when you comment using the Gravatar service
  • You can subscribe to the comments in a individual post by checking a box when you make a comment
  • The last commented posts, latest posts, and most commented stories are now at the bottom of each page
  • You can send an e-mail of a post to a friend and it will include the header image and the story excerpt.
  • There are lots of other neat features, including easier to navigate categories, more archive options and a weighted tag category view

The Classic View is now the default homepage due to the way WordPress manages archives, but you can still switch over to Headline View by choosing the navigation link on the top bar. I may add a cookie to make your homepage selection permanent. I’m focusing on customizing the blog as that’s not my forte and might take me a little while. (If you know how to do this easily, e-mail me at info -at- celebitchy.com. I tried to implement it a while ago, but I did it wrong and it was buggy.)

On the technical side, most all of the permalinks, except for the In Brief section, should be converted to the new format. I have left the old pages up for now, so you may find some of them on the migrated posts with picture pages. They will be removed in a week or two.

The feed from FeedBurner has been updated, but if you were pointing to the direct feed from the site, the address has now changed to: http://celebitchy.com/feed/rss2/

Cele|bitchy is just over six months old and has over 1500 posts, so this migration was no small feat. It was a lot of fun getting everything to work though, and I hope it creates a better gossip experience for you!

Let me know what you think, and thanks for visiting and contributing your comments. Cele|bitchy would not exist without you.

    I have been lurking on this site for almost a year. It is a must-stop gossip fix for me.

    I love the upgrades to your blog and want to thank you for removing old links that were no longer working.

    You’re doing an excellent job! Thank you.

    Thanks Cujokay, that really made my day! Which links were not working?

  4. cujokay says:

    I remember “Vanity ‘something'”. lol. I know I clicked on it for almost six months – it said “coming soon” or some such nonsense.

    Again, thanks for your wonderful site. I visit at least three times a week.

  5. Celebitchy says:

    I know what that was. That was a link to “Vanity Central” in my blogroll, not a part of Celebitchy. I would never put up a “Coming Soon” link like that. That was an external link that wasn’t working. I do try to clean those up but it’s hard to keep track of everything.

    Thanks Cujokay!
