An unfortunate side effect of the upgrade to WordPress has been that the feed URLs for this blog have changed, costing me 2/3 of my traffic. This will hopefully be rectified soon, but right now the URLs are:

http://scienceblogs.com/aardvarchaeology/feed/

or

http://scienceblogs.com/aardvarchaeology/feed/atom/

If you don’t know what this means, Dear Reader, then you are probably reading the blog by visiting it in your web browser. And if so, you have no problem with this.

Sadly, people who read this blog with feed reading software are unlikely to get this message unless they suddenly one day begin to wonder why my feed’s gone quiet.

    I am still waiting for the folks at
    Scienceblogging.org
    to get this URL change information, since that has been my customary access path.

    Never commented before, but just wanted to let you know that the message came up perfectly fine in my Google feed reader!

    Made the feed change some time ago and have been receiving it. At the old Scienceblogs, I was receiving all of the various blogs via one feed and, if there was a way to receive them singly, I wasn’t aware of it. The question is whether this comment will go through. At Evolution Blog, at least, commenting hasn’t worked for me.

    Obviously, commenting worked, but the oddity is that my comment jumped above the one of B. Nelson that had been entered long before.

    That’s just because I’ve configured the blog to put new comments up top. Whaddaya think?

    Well, what seemed like a bug turns out to be a feature. I guess it just takes getting used to.

The site is currently under maintenance and will be back shortly. New comments have been disabled during this time, please check back soon.
