Ever since Google announced they were shutting Reader down, I’ve been looking for a new RSS reader to replace it. I have since settled on Tiny Tiny RSS, a self-hosted package with a nice, clean interface. It also has a plugin system, which lets me use the Reeder app on my iPhone by having Tiny Tiny RSS emulate the Fever API.
I’m running all of this here on Nearly Free Speech, and I thought I would document the process in case it helps anyone out, including getting Reeder to sync with TT-RSS.

Oh shit, that kind of looks like SeaTac…
That’s exactly what happened yesterday at Seattle’s Sea-Tac Airport, according to KIRO-TV and other news outlets. The fire was first reported on the sixth floor of the garage around 6:45 a.m., and it quickly moved to consume several other vehicles. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but airport officials estimated damage to be around $250,000.

Smarter Archives 2.5 has just been released. I’ve made it so that the changes are invisible to users, but the code has been streamlined, optimized, and improved in a lot of ways. Most importantly, a couple of new options to customize what the function does have been added, and the old function name has been deprecated in favor of a new one that makes more sense,
smarter_archives(). I’ve added a brief version of the changes below to the Readme file.
Download it now from the WordPress Plugin Directory. There is an example of the plugin in action on my archives page.
- Template tag function has been renamed to
- New filters are available:
smarter_archives_defaults — applied to function defaults before user arguments are merged in
smarter_archives_where — applied to
WHERE statement of the SQL
smarter_archives_join — applied to blank string,
JOIN statement can be added if desired
smarter_archives_months — applied to array of short month names (Jan, Feb, etc.)
- Function output can now be either outputted by default or returned
- Non-breaking space between months is now customizable
- Order can now be switched between descending (default) and ascending
