Some advance on the knowledge blog front this week. Firstly, myself and Simon Cockell spent a short while setting up a development and testing environment and wrote our first wordpress plugin — “Peaches” based around the Hello Dolly plugin, but with the lyrics from the Stranglers song instead. We finished this yesterday just before automattic released Wordpress 3.0. Hopefully, it will be easy to upgrade. Rather more usefully, I got the very first version of a reference list plugin working. At the moment, it just transforms DOIs into hyperlinks.
And, secondly, I got notification from the British Library that they will be archiving the website. Good news, although there are not archives available yet.
We move forward!
