Cork City Streets on April 19, 2008

This is an experiment. I am hoping to post (almost) every photo I take as small 400px wide images using the new gallery function in WordPress 2.5.

These posts won’t appear in the feed because of the number of thumbnails Feedreaders won’t see the gallery, and only an excerpt will be shown on the homepage if I’ve got my snippets of code right. It’s not polite to shove 90+ images down the throats of subscribers IMO! You’ll have to view the actual post to see the thumbnails.

Out of these images, I think there’s maybe 2 or 3 that I’ll work on and post later. Hopefully this gallery may provide a context to those photos I work on and publish later. At the very least you’ll see that I take a lot of photos of nothing in particular! 🙂

Oh yes, I got my Sigma 10-20 lens back today. Only took 5 months to repair! Thanks Sigma!

Aperture ƒ/3.5
Camera Canon EOS 20D
Focal length 18mm
ISO 400
Shutter speed 1/1600s

    Were those shots taken on the Sigma 10-20mm?

    Each thumbnail provides a link like this – when I hit that url, I get your homepage. No picture. Also no meta info (otherwise I’d have answered my first question myself!) 🙂

    PS> It seems like comments don’t work without cookies. I got a 403 error on wp-comments-post.php when I tried my first comment from my regular browser (with cookies disabled).

    Callum – thanks. That’s wp-super-cache. I had to add another rule to the mod_rewrite rules so the attachments would be served. Must put that into the release version too.

    Unfortunately you need cookie enabled to post. It’s my anti-spam measure. It stops 99% of comment spam dead but of course has unintended consquences. See for the plugin I use. I added a few mod_rewrite rules to check for the cookie, which saves my server a *lot* of CPU usage.
