yonima.com is made with loving care.
The site is published using [WordPress](http://wordpress.org). WordPress is easy to install, maintain, and manage, and features a large, robust catalogue of plugins, a few of which have been contributed by yours truly.
The following WordPress plugins are currently being used:
* **Akismet** – WordPress’s comment spam filter of choice.
* **Bad Behavior** – Michael Hampton’s excellent spambot blocker.
* **Contact Form 7** – Takayuki Miyoshi’s plugin to manage a contact form for you, because I didn’t feel like going through all the trouble of setting up the code myself.
* **Fluency Admin** – Dean J. Robinson’s excellent theme for the WordPress admin area. You won’t notice it, but it makes my life much more pleasurable.
* **Markdown** – John Gruber’s Markdown is a fantastic human readable plain text format for posting to the web. Plugin by Michel Fortin.
* **WP-Footnotes** – Simon Elvery’s plugin for easy addition of footnotes to articles.
* **WP-Syntax** – A syntax highlighting plugin. This is used for code examples I post. It uses the Geisha syntax library. Plugin by Ryan McGeary.
* **WP Super Cache** – An absolute requirement for any WordPress installation. Plugin by Donncha O Caoimh.
* **WP Scrippets** – A plugin for inserting screenplay fragments into articles, using [John August](http://johnaugust.com)’s Scrippets format. Written and maintained by me.
* **Fancy Quotes** – Allows the addition of specially styled blockquotes, wrapped in a cute little speech bubble. Another plugin developed by me.
This site is hosted by [A Small Orange](http://asmallorange.com), which I have no complaints about.
I’m a strong advocate of allowing user comments on blogs, so by default all posts allow comments. Two levels of replies to comments are enabled, so you can comment on a comment on a comment. I have very thick skin, and will usually only delete comments if I feel what’s been posting shocks the conscience, but I reserve the right at all times to do whatever I want with my website, including modifying and deleting comments for whatever reason.
Like many WordPress blogs, this site uses Gravatars (global avatars) in the comments. If you don’t have your own Gravatar, and would like to have a photo appear next to your comments, you can sign up for a Gravatar [here](http://en.gravatar.com/). I highly encourage you to do so, as it makes comment identification much easier. My Gravatar is shown here, and my comments are marked with a different, darker background color for easy identification.
Comments are not paginated.
### Site Design
The site uses a custom theme that I designed and coded from scratch on a Mac. I do all my coding in [TextMate](http://macromates.com/). The site was primarily designed for Safari 4, but tested in Firefox, Chrome, and Opera for the Mac OS, and Internet Explorer 8 on Windows. Webkit browsers will show you the site the way I intended it to be seen.
The title font is *Century Schoolbook*, set in italics. The font is available as part of Microsoft Office, and has become my serif font of choice. The Century family is extremely attractive and respected: It is the required font family for submissions to the Supreme Court of the United States, and counts among its members the *Computer Modern* font used in the excellent LaTeX typesetting system. If you’re interested in giving a Century font a try but don’t have Microsoft Office, you can download [*CMU Serif*](http://cm-unicode.sourceforge.net/), a freely available Unicode version of LaTex’s Computer Modern. CMU Serif’s italics aren’t as nice as Century Schoolbook’s, but it’s still a mighty fine font.
