mircea_popescu: "if comment_approved" can't be a flag at post time.
asciilifeform: in STOCK wp, it is !
asciilifeform: for fucks sake
asciilifeform: hitting 'submit' to be presented with the original page and blank form and NO indication of what happened, is nonsense
asciilifeform: and this is not what happens on trilema
mircea_popescu: damn. how would the machinery know at the time someone hits submit whether you'l lapprove it later or not ?
asciilifeform: it knows that it is in the mod queue
asciilifeform: vs immediately-approved
mircea_popescu: ok, so you want it to do a "your comment is awaiting moderation" thing ?
asciilifeform: most of the themes appear to already have the hook
mircea_popescu: guess what : trilema does this
mircea_popescu: (try, see)
asciilifeform: test (Your comment is awaiting moderation)
asciilifeform: so, how ??
mircea_popescu: teh... normal way ?
mircea_popescu: iirc phf's install does it also.
asciilifeform: it does
asciilifeform: but he never published his theme
asciilifeform: so i have nfi how !
asciilifeform: default theme does no such thing
mircea_popescu: i thought he was using teh default.
asciilifeform: apparently not
mircea_popescu: weird shit.
mircea_popescu: grep for the string what you got there ?
asciilifeform: it is in wp-includes/comment-template.php
mircea_popescu: no, in comments.php
asciilifeform: not in the default theme !
mircea_popescu: well possibly because it doesn't support this.
asciilifeform: the only place in mp tarball that has it
mircea_popescu: obviously. if the text not there you ain't getting it.
asciilifeform: is the template.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform mp tarball does not include a theme.
asciilifeform: my theme has it !
asciilifeform: yes i know
mircea_popescu: <? if ($comment->comment_approved == '0') : ?><em>(Your comment is awaiting moderation)</em> << in comments.php, where you want it posted.
asciilifeform: <?php if ($comment->comment_approved == '0') : ?><span class="unapproved"><?php _e('Your comment is awaiting moderation.', 'veryplaintxt') ?></span><?php endif; ?>
asciilifeform: there it is.
asciilifeform: and 0 effect.
mircea_popescu: wtf is "php _e" ?
asciilifeform: how the hell would i know
mircea_popescu: apparently your interpreter doesn't either.
mircea_popescu: nfi what _e function is, myself.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah. a thing introduced after 2008
mircea_popescu: stick to echo.
asciilifeform: my php has it
asciilifeform: or, e.g., 'Post a Comment' would likewise fail to appear.
asciilifeform: and numerous other strings similarly encrudded in the theme.
asciilifeform: so this isn't it.
shinohai: php _e <<< that is a wordpress turd that makes it display in multiple languages iirc
trinque: yeah but the span doesn't appear either
trinque: in teh html sauce
asciilifeform: <h3 id="respond"><?php _e('Post a Comment', 'veryplaintxt') ?></h3> becomes <h3 id="respond">Post a Comment</h3>
asciilifeform: so i dun see the problem ?
trinque: if _e were emitting empty string that'd be one thing
trinque: but the span around it doesn't show up in the source on the next page after POST
trinque: asciilifeform: maybe <pre><?php print_r($comment) ?></pre> in that template somewhere
trinque: or whatever it was, it's been a while
asciilifeform: trinque: and this will tell me what ?
trinque: print_r will dump the contents of that var into the template
asciilifeform: trinque: i have nfi where.
asciilifeform: or why i should be spending time emplacing 1,001 printf debuggeries
asciilifeform: when this thing apparently WORKS in mircea_popescu's unpublished original.
asciilifeform: i confess that i have not found this exercise to be either pleasant, or educational, or productive.
asciilifeform: it is about as much fun as reading cobol.
trinque: there is always "not to be"
asciilifeform: phf apparently knows enough to replicate working setup without the missing pieces and without using the pig-ugly default theme.
asciilifeform: i - do not.
asciilifeform: i will become a php monkey shortly after i learn to run the deep fryers at mickeydee's.
asciilifeform: how the fuck do folks put up with a thing with no debugger ?
trinque: it's an overgrown templating language that came of needing to turn db queries into html and not much else
trinque: written by some guy that needed to make a website one time
trinque: even if you had your debugger it wouldn't be meaningfully attached to the browser
trinque: sure there's skewer and whatever other *awful* madness I've dipped my dick into now and again
asciilifeform: even half a debugger, that meaningfully steps through the process of shitting out the html, would be useful
trinque: runs afoul of your "no, whole earth must burn" though
asciilifeform: it must.
trinque: I agree 100%
trinque: and hell, you want a proper blog^H^H^H^H command line interface to a bunch of articles gimmeh teh gossipd
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-07-06#1497752 << yeah. you're also infinitely more expensive to support. i'm guessing maybe this is just not for you ?
a111: Logged on 2016-07-06 01:31 asciilifeform: i - do not.
mircea_popescu: no idea how that'd be possibru in computing, but somehow apparently.
asciilifeform: it is quite possible, this cobol is ~entirely foreign to me.
mircea_popescu: but yes, trinque has it : html crap is by definition undebuggable.
asciilifeform: back when i set up original www, i used a heathen shitpress with as much as could be removed.
asciilifeform: and the result ~worked.
asciilifeform: and left it at that.
asciilifeform: this was in 2007.
mircea_popescu: well so copy it over or w/e.
asciilifeform: i don't want to akismet any moar !
mircea_popescu: ah. well, maybe let it be give it another try once shinohai produced a version.
trinque: then bite the dowel and put the print_r in
asciilifeform: i'ma install it trb-style
asciilifeform: which is to say, once somebody shares a COMPLETE package
asciilifeform: without 'now re-invent this wheel i didn't feel like posting'
shinohai: TIL php may possibly be asciilifeform 's kryptonite
asciilifeform: shinohai: i always despised wwwtronics and made no secret of it.
trinque: god I think I have surrogate indigestion
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ironically, if your original is from 2007, mp-wp should work with your theme out of the box.
mircea_popescu: maybe try that.
asciilifeform: i specifically wanted a new site, independent of old and producing no down time when tweaked
asciilifeform: and i dun like me old theme either
asciilifeform: it sux quite mightily, as discussed in original thread
asciilifeform: (mutilated images)
asciilifeform: was trying for clean start here.
mircea_popescu: well then find a theme that doesn't suck.
asciilifeform: i did !
mircea_popescu: "fails to do what i want with queued comments" = sucks.
asciilifeform: and it run work with mp-wp
asciilifeform: though it was written for 2.x !
asciilifeform: *dun work
mircea_popescu: mno. you found a theme that sucks. find a theme that doesn't suck
mircea_popescu: where "does exactly what i want" = not sucks
asciilifeform: i tried dozens
mircea_popescu: well that i dunno.
asciilifeform: they all suck.
asciilifeform: so answer seems to be 'write theme'
mircea_popescu: this complaint i heard befoar.
asciilifeform: which phf is qualified to do, and i am not.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well, eventually serenity is gonna produce one i think.
asciilifeform: then i will use, and say 'thank you'
mircea_popescu: cool. not emergency anyway.
mircea_popescu: but odds are you'll say "this doesn't work".
asciilifeform: but i'm a bit sad that there is no place to put the submarine pics.
asciilifeform: they were spiffy.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, if any web / css / designer people wants to do something useful, an old amiga/dos style theme for the tmsr wp would be apparently mucho appreciated.
asciilifeform: muchly so.
asciilifeform: or even simply a plain text, minimal bytemass sort of thing.
asciilifeform: i dun so much care that it 'looks like commodore64' but it really ought to fit in the address space of one.
asciilifeform: simply matter of principle.
asciilifeform: 200kB css is loathesome.
Joshua-I: Interesting. I'll look at some c64 UIs to get a feel
asciilifeform: i had no doubt that this exists.
asciilifeform: but i'd rather just have a <64kB thing.
asciilifeform: that i could read + understand.
Joshua-I: Like css wise right
asciilifeform: whole mass minus payload.
asciilifeform: and ditto on server side.
Joshua-I: Wondering if that's even possible with wp
BingoBoingo: Joshua-I: You obviously haven't seen qntra theme
Joshua-I: Yeah I did a quick check and the answer is yes
Joshua-I: I have seen it just though jquery was built right in there, since I've never seen wp without it
BingoBoingo: And no, qntra theme has not yet been tested with mp-wp. Runs own wp fork.
BingoBoingo: Which is still different from thedrinkingrecord.com wp fork.

Joshua-I: Should I read the logs most recent to least recent or the other way around
BingoBoingo: Prolly best to read the last monthe first and then jump back to 2013
BingoBoingo: Just want the most recent month to put history into context
Joshua-I: Hm ok thanks
BingoBoingo: Or mebbe start in January 2016 and read to no and then do 2015, 2014, and 2013
BingoBoingo: Lots of ways to break it up.
BingoBoingo: But hanbot's 6 month quote was from 3 years ago so I assume best to to just read ONLY six months of logz and be like "I r Bitcoin nao"
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-07-06#1497830 << make sure you're working off the correct version.

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-07-06#1497840 << logs stretch out to 2012. at this point prolly best approach is to put word of your interest in search, read the results and the references.
