Unless you are interested in both Textpattern AND PHP (and know what both of those things are), this post will probably confuse and/or bore you (hopefully not to death).
To my great delight, I did some initial testing and discovered that Textpattern will handle direct, inline PHP! That means I can throw PHP commands directly into my posts, as needed (if you know essentially what I mean, but need some help on the implementation, let me know).
Which brings up another issue.
I am not at all sure how I should treat my scripts and experiments on this site. Do I setup a static section that contains them (and then post a notice on my blog when I’ve added something neat), or do I just create a post any time I create a new script or experiment and tag it appropriately?
Due to the somewhat limiting nature of posting within a blog, and the increased possibility of future screwy links (if I was to switch blogging systems, for example), I am leaning towards creating a lab for scripts and experiments (indeed, I’ve had /thelab/ set up in my directory structure as long as I’ve had /contact/).
Any thoughts, ideas, or opinions regarding this issue are appreciated.
Oh, and once I figure this out, I have some PHP stuff to post!
