removing unwanted meta tags in WP 1.5.x

I tried the Geo plugin in my 1.5 install, as I suspected GeoURL wasn’t finding me anymore. Turns out the plugin doesn’t work as expected and doesn’t come with instructions on how to clean up after it.

Took me a few searches of the WP support forum, and finally found something that worked. Go in your mysql database, change to the wp database, and use this:

delete from wp_postmeta where meta_key='_geo_location';

You can of course replace _geo_location with anything you need to clean up. To see what your options are, try:

select * from wp_postmeta;

Part the second

Continuing on with the narrative. Don’t get attached to it, as I don’t think it lasts the full 30 days.

Part the first

This is where I started. I took up an idea I had played with for last year’s NaNoWriMo but had to bail on. I got sick and lost a few days and that blew it for me. What I learned from that comes in two parts. One, don’t quit. Two, don’t force your writing. In a stunt or event like this, quantity over quality is what counts (bear that in mind if you read further).
