And of course all of my issues with the plugin not working all had one tiny little fix and poof! now it all works just fine.
Well... not compltely fine, but a heck of a lot better than it was!
So, I know have a fun little "check out what I'm reading" blog here. The plan is to stick an entry up for a book when I finish it. It should update in the sidebar here at the main blog whenever I add an entry/book.
Turns out there wasn't anything at all wrong with the plugin. Apparently MT won't process tags that are in entries. Who knew?! I certainly didn't! A little bitty tag processing plugin later and Voila! now I can use MT-Wair in my entries/exerpts/wherever I want. Woot!
The only little hitch is that I'm getting these weird internal server errors when I save entries or rebuild indexes. No idea why. Everything still does what it's supposed to, but instead of the entry saving and then going back to the "edit entry" page, I get an "internal server error" page. Very weird. I'm having a hard time tracking down where the problem actually is since everything still rebuilds and updates and works properly even though I'm getting error pages. Oh well, I'll figure it out sooner or later.
