A GreyMatter Problem

Well, isn’t this a kick in the head? GreyMatter doesn’t let me use the PRE or CODE tags in my posts because GreyMatter parses every bit of HTML that passes through its system. In plain english, I can’t post code fragments through GreyMatter. It’s not the worst thing in the world but it does hamper my ability to use GM as a quick note taking alternitive to a full page dissertation on any coding I might do. In this particular case, it means that you will have to wait a couple of days until I create a new page on this site for my GreyMatter and SSI How-To tutorial.

I know you’re all going to lose a lot of sleep over this.


  1. you might want to work on the rest of your page (essays, portfolio, etc) as they aren’t linked.

    Hi pot, this is kettle…you’re black…(I have yet to do the same thing :-P)

  2. You know what would be nice? If GreyMatter would set a cookie with your Name/E-Mail/WWW info so it doesn’t have to be typed for every comment. I wonder if anyone’s made an addon like that for GM yet…

  3. Well, I personally am losing sleep over it. Or maybe it’s just that I was an insomniac to start with.

    I wish I had some wonderful insight on how to make eveerything work the way you want it to, but I think by now you’ve realized I don’t know jack about any of this coding stuff. I’m just here as the online cheerleader. “Go Geek Go!”

    It’ll all turn out fine. Trust me on this.

  4. Wow, I didn’t think anyone would be here yet. Thanks Myo, I was actually told how to make code work in GM by a fellow named ‘michael’ on the GreyMatter message board, but it’s a convoluted and kludgy way to do it so I don’t think I’ll be using it much.

    Josh, you’re absolutely right. I saw your post about it too. As soon as the rest of this site is up and running (this weekend I hope) I’ll work on a solution. I think I know how, but I’ll need to do a bit of research first.

    Arvid! Dude! You’re alive?!? Man, I visit your site all the time hoping for a story about Olympic Naked Coed Pillow Fighting with your new housemates but it never seems to happen. Could all my juvenile fantasies about a household of women be wrong? Have you not even had one game of Bikini And Olive-Oil Twister yet?

    My god, J is gonna kill me.
