Oracle Apps Blog Improvements
Some improvements have recently been introduced to this site which should hopefully ensure a richer blogging experience for 2005 - I’ve just moved my site to a new IPP and also upgraded to ExpressionEngine v1.2.1. Here’s the details…..
pMachine Hosting - my new IPP
Towards the end of last year I encountered a problem with my website which was causing it to crash every couple of days. Basically, my existing Internet Presence Provider (IPP) couldn’t handle the amount of traffic I was generating. I decided, therefore, to move my site to a new host, namely pMachine Hosting (who incidentally are the providers of the ExpressionEngine blogging software I use for this site). It seems to have been the right move because I haven’t experienced any crashes to date and the site seems to be running a bit faster.
This was released on the 15th of January 2005 and I’ve just upgraded this site to it. According to the ExpressionEngine site some of the new features are: -
Check out the change log for a detailed list of the changes.
- A stand-alone version of the “publish” form, so weblog entries can be submitted from any page
- An improved plugin manager. Plugins can now be browsed and installed directly from your control panel
- URL mapping for people who migrated from pMachine Pro, allowing pM style links to point to their new EE location
- Redesigned template installer which allows new template designs to be incorporated more easily
