You know what is awesome? When your Joomla to WordPress conversion tool actually does the job as advertised. I’m going to do some clean up over the next few days and then the old site will be nuked and replaced by the new WordPress CMS. I still need to work on installing and modifying themes, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
For the longest time, the photo gallery on this site (jameslandrith.com) has been busted, broke, malfunctioning and otherwise just not working. I've played at duct-tape and chickenwire solutions, repairing the code myself or installing a different photo album application. The problem with the latter solution is that many third party apps break when I upgrade […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I've uninstalled the forum due to an exploit that was – well – exploited aggressively this morning (2:00 am ET). The forum was seldom used and not a very popular add-on. While I could research a replacement and import the old data, I'm leaning toward just leaving it off the website. Just an FYI for […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
COMMENTS ARE WORKING AGAIN. COMMENTS ARE WORKING AGAIN. COMMENTS ARE WORKING AGAIN. COMMENTS ARE WORKING AGAIN. That is all. UPDATED: Apparently the comments are working – with an annoying glitch. You must be a registered user to leave comments. I'm going to switch to a different comment system in the near future. In the meantime, […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
I have turned off all commenting ability and hidden the comments for the short term. No comments have been deleted. The recent Joomla upgrade does not appear to like my akocomment component. Once this problem has been fixed, I'll make make the comments visible again. Thank you.Continue Reading... No Comments.
I've installed a new template that activates when a reader visits jameslandrith.com from a PDA. I'm not excited about the view on my iPhone, but that's Safari for you. I'd like some feedback from readers with Treos, cell phones and other PDAs so I can better evaluate this new template and mambot. For other Joomla […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I've made some updates to my website's syndication feed. On the left side, under DS-Syndicate, you can find new links for syndication feeds. Following this module, you can find RSS Socialnet, which contains clickable links to add my feed to various RSS services. The old feed links will still work, but they are only providing […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
I’ve made some template changes to my website and merged my school board campaign website into my personal website. In addition, I’ve added an events calendar (free plugin for Joomla CMS) to track media and political appearances. Being the total geek I truly am – I backloaded it with prior appearances too. I also […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Yes, the site looks all kinds of different. I screwed up and used the "upgrade to whatever new version of Mambo" script in my webhost's Fantastico tool in the control panel. Everything was broken from that point on and using the backup file to resurrect the prior installation of Mambo was so convoluted and ridiculous a process that […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I've finally finished the merger of my old WordPress installation with this Mambo CMS. Long-time readers know this website began with Blogger, then MovableType, on to WordPress and finally to the Mambo CMS you see today. YES!!!! This has been pending for nearly a year (see the Website Updates category under News/Blog Archives for more). All […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
