I discovered this morning while trying to improve the layout of
this blog that Blosxom (the perl version) keeps six processes
running once a query has been made. So changes to the CSS don't
actually show up on the web site, because the copies in the
running processes' cache don't have the new changes.
That makes it rather challenging to integrate new CSS changes
into a Blosxom site. (There must be a trick -- I've seen some
nice looking Blosxom sites, but there aren't any templates or
hints in the documentation.)
So I went looking for alternatives, and decided to try
first since it didn't require any changes to the existing entries.
It's very nice! Much easier to configure than perl blosxom, plus
it comes with (a) CSS template samples and (b) a collection of basic
plugins that actually work. Nice!
So now I have a sidebar and a category list as well as a calendar,
and CSS configuration should be much easier from now on.
