Anyway, I discovered that the traffic has been surprisingly increasing since this blog relaunched a while ago. All of these traffic surges are thanks to the posts I wrote two years ago or so when I was still using Linux. As you know, I already deleted these posts because of the white screen of death, which means that the visitors of these links were presented with the 404 error page.
Based on the traffic log, I restored some of the posts which are still popular today from my backup copy of the site. These posts didn’t actually stored in the WordPress files. They stored in the WordPress MySQL database. I will write about how to do a scheduled backup of the database in another post.
Here are the restored posts with no specific order:
- Switching my Development Environment to Bluefish
- Import additional snippets to Bluefish
- Create a Wallpaper Slideshow on Ubuntu
- Working with jQuery and CakePHP
- Enable Line Wrap option in NetBeans Nightly
- The C #ifdef and #ifndef Directives
- Reinstall Ubuntu on CR-48 notebook with USB
- My First Tip on using Ubuntu with Chrome OS on CR-48 Notebook
- Running Sims 3 under PlayOnLinux in Ubuntu Linux
Unfortunately, not all of the posts are recoverable. Here is one post which I couldn’t find. I can’t remember the exact content for the post. But by looking at its URL, I think it is about using jQuery to generate the breadcrumb navigation.
The URL for each of these post are maintained so that others can visit the posts from other sites without updating their links. This is achieved by changing the publishing date to the original publishing date. For example, the publishing date for the post wrote on 12/19/2010 was set to 12/19/2010 and so on.
The content for these posts are almost original. I removed the images in these posts since I don’t have them anymore. The original comments were retained for nearly all of the posts thanks to Disqus.
I will be adding more of these old posts as they appear in the traffic log.
Now onto the updates for the site. In the next several days, I will be creating the child theme for this blog based on the Twenty Twelve theme. The upcoming posts will be the daily report for the child theme features of the day.
As of right now, I’m focusing on the WordPress development, mainly the plugin. For the last several months, I have been modifying the WordPress plugins for others. Recently I started my own WordPress plugin project. It will be used to managing my modified plugins and others’ feedbacks for my plugin modification service. If all goes well, I will publish this plugin to the WordPress plugins repo.
That’s all for this post. Be sure to leave a comment below to discuss which of my old posts do you want me to publish except for those that were already on the blog, as well as other feedbacks for this post.
