Light at the end of the tunnel!!

If you still see the space in the list, beginning with “the 101″…  which is still present as of October, 2013…

If you look toward the right column wherein I have posted links to sequences, unless by the time you have read this, my work therein has been completed, you will see within the link category named “sequences,” a space.  Of course all the link categories to the right are involving sequences, apart from the default links, the calendar, recent posts, etc.  In any case, as of this writing you will still see a space after which you will see a link for “the 101.”

This space marks the division between my previous method of linking (using menu widgets) and my new method (involving link widgets.)  The new method allows me to easily move a link from “sequences” to, for example “featured” or some other heading simply by editing the link in question and changing the category to which it belongs.  This is a great labour-saving system, but it has been a very long process, as I have set about reworking some aspects of the site.

What has inspired this post is simply that I have noticed that the list of old links is growing small!  At first It felt as though it would never be completed.  The list of sequence seemed to have grown so large, you see; and I hadn’t really taken a good look at it until just this morning.  Only a scant handful of sequence left (plus possibly a few short sequences to which I hadn’t provided links before–I have, in fact, encountered a few of those here and there as I have been going over things)

It is a good feeling to see that ones work is progressing, even when the work in question is simple “scut work,” as our beloved combat engineer might term it.   For so very long the list after the vexing break and beginning with “the 101” has been much longer than the list of finished links; or so I thought.  Apparently, it has been of junior length for a long while now, and, all the while, escaping my notice.

In any case, here it is almost finished and I hadn’t even noticed the progress I had been making.  It just seemed like a long, long, task that would never come to an end.

Indeed, do not put a ‘0’ in the “Tag Cloud” widget:

The widget in question is no longer limited to 75 elements. I have mentioned this before, whereabout I decided to limit its size to 30 which presents a roughly square shape. Still, I will amend my prior statement all the while conducting an experiment: Do not put a ‘0’ in the “Tag Cloud” widget unless you place it last, as it will render all other widgets unfathomably far down–virtually unreachable.

Finally Done

I believe I have finally finished updating all sequence links to the new “Link” format.  Previously, I had been using a custom menu widget, and had slowly but surely been redoing these links one at a time until just recently having finished the final link.  Now it is much easier to move sequence links from “coming” to “new” to “featured,” &c.  So…  I have finally dispensed with the old menu widget in favor of a new crop of “link” widgets.  I thought I would never get it done.  But it has finally been completed.

On the gripe side of things:  The Zemanta plugin appears not to be working any longer.  Did wordpress.com dispense with their relationship with Zemanta?  I really found it quite useful, and, if it is true that Zemanta is gone, I will mourn its loss.  But what can one do?
