Goodness it has been a fun two weeks. I’ve switched internet host providers for the website, deleted all the provide content from the old site and changed to WordPress as my CMS. Content Management System for those non-nerds out there.
I’m on my sixth install of WordPress. The first five went terribly askew when I made some “enhancement” to the software in the code. Plus even my backups were going wrong. So I have three books on WordPress, studied countless YouTube videos and forums. It is supposed to be easier than this, but it is totally on my for the confusion and false starts.
If you are reading this it means I am through the worst of it and likely on the right track. If this is down in the next day or two . . . it means I didn’t learn my lesson and have likely tried to create additional enhancements recommended on WordPress subject sites. I am restraining from that right now. Many hours of sleep deprivation and constant reading and experimenting due to my making this a lot more difficult than it has to be.
I would definitely still have made the changes because ultimately I will be able to create a much better site(s). Once timpfohl.com is up and going I’ll move on to the exciting “Jet52.com” and “timandJulie.net” creations. Much more work to come, but in the end the IT journey is what is the real fun.
