Changes And Problems

I think I’m going to be forced to upgrade my template and WordPress in the near future because there is obviously something that isn’t appreciated by Firefox and IE in the coding. Firefox renders the site properly, but doesn’t always load it and IE hates my header graphic.

I’ve added a Feedjit widget to the sidebar after seeing it at Fallenmonk’s and Maru’s place. If you open the options you can stop it from tracking you for this site. The reported locations are only approximate. It tells people I’m in Freeport or Santa Rosa Beach. No one really lives in Freeport, and no one I know can afford to live in Santa Rosa Beach.

Actually I should lighten up on Freeport. It started out as a “free port”, as in a smuggling and pirate’s haven, and then someone noticed the major problem – it’s on Choctawhatchee Bay, not the Gulf and you have to pass the Coast Guard at the Destin Pass to get there. They once had the best local seafood restaurant on the Coast, Nick’s, but it burned down and wasn’t rebuilt. I guess the thought of losing that aged deep fry oil was too much for the owners. It takes years to get a grill, pots, and pans seasoned the way you want.

This is why I quit self-hosting my blog and moved to Blogger. It just got fuggin’ annoying dealing with hosting issues and software updates and migration issues when I changed ISP’s and etc…

Thanks, Frederick, but I’ve been through it and just have to find a template I can live with. I shouldn’t have modified the standard template so throughly, because it makes it such a pain to upgrade.

The reason I changed to WordPress was because of the problems I was having with Blogger, Badtux, so I don’t see going back.

I’ve had good experiences with WordPress.com hosting, though.

I’m probably going to set up a back up site over there, Michael, so I don’t have to learn a new interface, and can see the changes in different versions. The first thing I need to check is making my alterations to the template, my own template.
