Late last night/early this morning, literati, my personal code monkey bestest friend, ♥♥♥, tweaked the code for my journal layout to add a taglist in my sidebar, and also to make my tags appear in a heirarchical form on my tag page. (How to.)

Wassat, I hear you thinking? It's this - isn't it nifty? But of course, that only works if you have your tags organised, and I... didn't. So, I went through my tags and renamed them into something that would look pretty when the code went live. (Heads-up to anyone who had any particular tags bookmarked or linked.)

Then I figured that there might be some improperly or incompletely tagged posts in my journal, so I went back to the beginning and started checking, post by post by post.

24 hours later, I have added over 70 formerly untagged older drabbles and drabblesets (some over 2000 words!) to my btvs:s/x:misc tag (and if I have to explain that acronym, you don't know me at all. *g*)

Lesson for the day: Sometimes, a touch of OCD can be a good thing. :D

BT Update: They're still a$$hats, but finally, after 24 hours or so, the illegal, immoral cookies from hell stopped appearing and messing up my ability to browse. There is still some lag time between my clicking a link or typing in an url and hitting 'go' and actually having the page start to load, so I may still be being rerouted through the Webwise servers, but BT haven't contacted me at all to discuss the matter, despite promises of <24hr responses to my emails. I'm still looking for a new ISP. And I will be complaining to someone further up the foodchain.

We had a fight getting the code to work. The tag page came out okay, but the list in the sidebar refused to appear no matter that we did. Then, in a flash of genius, I figured out the problem. Well, okay, I correctly guessed what might be the problem (code on my theme layer overriding the customise layout page code) and fixed it and yay!

Maybe prevent them from accessing their porn.

Maybe force them to view other people's porn instead of their own, because that's nearly always traumatic. :D

Ah yes. Went through that on my last layout. Quite the pain when that happens.

*snerk* Yup. That would do it.

I had no idea that could be a problem, but we'd already removed all the text boxes but one, off the theme layer, and we were running out of ideas so I just deleted that gobbet of code, compiled and refreshed my page and *\o/*. Hopefully, I'll remember for next time, if the problem ever occurs again.

Not that it's likely to now, not with the way they've added all that extra functionality to the customise area.
