    How To Get Distracted Part 2: Windwows !

    In my office at home I work with two screens. Sometimes there’s nothing on the second screen except a slideshow of screen captures of some of my websites. Just now the screen capture for my “bobbing wide IT consultant” website caught my eye. Apparently, in 2008-9 I was developing middleware software for Windwows (sic).

    why am I telling you this now? Well, I’ve just been making changes to my oik plugin to support “custom image links” for the [[nivo]] slider shortcode. Then I thought it would be a good idea to make it work for the [bw_images] shortcode as well. So I developed a solution (for oik version 1.3). I was just testing [bw_images thumbnail=100] and got two unexpected behaviours: wrong size image (thumbnail parm ignored) AND the image title was missing (a nice feature which I was intending to add but not by accident). So I was about to debug that problem when I saw Windwows.

    At which point I decided to create this test case.

    When the code is working then this page will appear how I expect it to appear and the image will link to the page with the original typo.
