I've just released a little project I've been putting together for the Textpattern community: Awesome Textpattern (https://github.com/drmonkeyninja/awesome-textpattern). It's a curated list of Textpattern plugins and resources hosted on GitHub. 

I've written a full explanation as to what it is on my blog (http://andy-carter.com/blog/awesome-textpattern-a-curated-list-of-textpattern-plugins-and-resources), but essentially the idea is for it to be a community driven resource for stable plugins and relevant resources to the latest version of Textpattern. If you work with Textpattern please take a look and start contributing to the list by making pull requests. I hope we can all build this into an invaluable resource.

How to unlock a car with your brain. Strange, but seemingly true.

Keeping getting what appears to be database errors on the Textpattern sites. Is there a known issue?

The Textpattern Resources website keeps showing up with "Warning: Got error 28 from storage engine describe `textpattern` in /home/plugins/web/public/textpattern/lib/txplib_db.php on line 89" (not good on a production site, would have thought these sort of errrors would be hidden); and the forum is showing up with "Error: Unable to fetch category/forum list."

Agreed that it sounds like server side issues.

In my case , I found out that chrome has issues with loading certain sites. It seems to be a random issue as far as which users it affects.

Just thought I'd put it out there in case.

Looks like you can access the forums now.

Whether you agree with the Green Parties policies or not Natalie Bennett makes a very good point that we elect a local representative not a prime minister in this country. The Conservatives and Labour seem to often deceive the electorate on this point!

arc_meta v1.3.0 is available now. I’ve increased the field limits for meta titles and descriptions. There’s also support for social graph/Twitter card images on categories and sections.

I've just blogged about what in my opinion are the essential Textpattern plugins.

+Kieran Harrod the concept of section hierarchy should definitely be part of core.
