GoDaddy Unexpected Database Changes

19 September, 2015 (16:41) | Software | By: Lyle

GoDaddy seems to have moved some servers unexpectedly. A number of my web sites (WordPress) all went offline. I wasn’t sure of what the cause was when noticed – I couldn’t remember all those database passwords to get into PHPmyAdmin to figure out what was going on and GoDaddy has no contact mechanism now except calling […]

GoDaddy WordPress Service

24 July, 2015 (00:59) | Services | By: Lyle

I’m in the process of relocating my travel log from Blogger to another folder I’ve set up with a copy of WordPress.  I did this all from the GoDaddy account management page.  They’ve really improved their management tools, and it was completely easy to do.  The only mistake I made was getting impatient with the […]

A Test of MapPress Easy Maps

9 July, 2015 (01:16) | Software | By: Lyle

Related to an earlier post on Google Maps, which changed to something unusable for me, this is a test of a WordPress widget for imbedding a map in WordPress content.  If this seems usable, I will most likely migrate my travel log out of Blogger to a site here in my lschofield domain.  This will give […]

Changed Twitter Widget

9 July, 2015 (00:44) | Software | By: Lyle

I just disabled the widget Twitter for WordPress on my personal WordPress site, and replaced with the one Easy Twitter Feed Widget.  I preferred the Twitter for WordPress I was using; it was simpler configuration and didn’t try and have a lot of its own formatting so it was easy to fit in as a menu item […]

WordPress Dashboard Resolved (Maybe)

9 April, 2010 (11:08) | Software | By: Lyle

This post on the WordPress support forums seems to have helped me resolve the bad Dashboard display, although I can’t point to a specific issue. I changed the name of my plug-ins folder (renamed from “plugins” to “plugins_old”), logged out and logged into the dashboard and forced a reload of the pages.  Dashboard looked normal.  […]

WordPress Dashboards Failed

6 April, 2010 (23:41) | Software | By: Lyle

Having trouble posting.  All the dashboards failed even though the sites are running fine.  A couple of posts on support forums indicate I’m not the only having problems, but no answers being reported.  Messed up dashboard and the way its supposed to work shown below: Screwed Up Screen from WordPress Update:

Loading Old Content

1 July, 2009 (00:13) | Software | By: Lyle

This install of WordPress is 2.8 – a number of minor versions from where I was.  The work done on this product is pretty impressive, the Dashboard and management tools behind the scenes are slick, well designed, and easy to use.  The plugin and widget implementation have removed almost all my desire to tinker with […]

WP Templates…

25 March, 2005 (16:03) | Software | By: Lyle

First, helps to set the wp-content “themes” directory to allow writing.  Duh. Not too bad.  I’m starting from a template from Mike Little that is clean with both sides having a column.  I think by the time I’m done its doing to have little in common with the original outside of the CSS layout information.

Recent WordPress Install

25 March, 2005 (00:01) | Hardware | By: Lyle

Some more details… This site (and some others here) are powered by the wonderful WordPress “blog” content management tools.  The site is currently powered by Red Hat-Apache-PHP-MySQL (the “LAMP” approach), and WordPress is an obvious selection with this framework.  I’ve tried a bunch, and even use Blogger and some other things, but I want to […]
