I ran across this site today which has some good b2 hacks. I’ve intended to create more search engine friendly permalinks and page titles for a while, just haven’t gotten around to it. I don’t think I’ll be using this method for getting the post title into the page title though.
I may try to do it in concert with another idea I had for buffering the HTML output into a variable before I display it so it can the rendered blog home page can be stored in the database (updated on any post/comment) and not rebuilt on every page view.
A fellow also sent me some better code for my count posts per month/category hacks, it reduced the load time on my page by about 0.05-0.10 seconds, so I’ll repackage those when I have time, but it isn’t a high priority.
I also want to return the search results and archives views using post titles and short excerpts instead of the entire post – there are a number of hacks out there that do this kind of thing, so I hope to use one of them instead of writing yet-another-archives-hack.
Also, I’ve been meaning to add support for photos attached to a blog entry – not sure when I’ll get to that.
