I have two new (well one and a half, rounded up) pages to announce for WUWT readers.
First, we have the new Atmospheric Reference Page, available on the pulldown menu as seen below:
The Atmospheric Reference Page is also available on the right sidebar with this icon:
Thanks to WUWT regular “Just The Facts” for compiling and developing this page.
In the coming weeks we are planning to develop additional Reference Pages and to refine the existing pages further, so please post any links below that you think might be valuable additions to WUWT’s Reference Pages.
Second, we have the “sorta-new” upgraded Test page, also available from the menu bar.
The purpose of this page is to give WUWT commenters a place to practice complex comments that might need formatting, I’ve added the helpful tips from Ric Werme to this page to give a reference to use for formatting comments.
Unfortunately no, wordpress.com where WUWT is hosted still hasn’t provided a live comment preview function, I’ve asked wp.com support for this many times, but to no avail. But we do have a solution, read on.
The only solution to actually embed a preview function in the WUWT website is to go to self hosting and manage wordpress in a LAMP installation on a server myself, and given the volume of traffic WUWT gets, plus what we learned trying to do just that with climateaudit.org when news breaks (so did the server box) I don’t want to risk it. Cloudservers at wordpress.com handle such loads with ease. Both WUWT and Climate Audit are stable and can handle huge loads, so I don’t plan to fix what isn’t broken.
You can however use Firefox and Greasemonkey to edit and preview some comment functions, see the link in the Test page. Combine Greasemonkey with the CA Assistant (developed for Climate Audit by Mr. Pete) and you have a way to fully preview and edit comments prior to submitting – see details here
