Making Headway

We’re making headway with the layout and content of the new web site.  The look and feel will be an ongoing effort until we arrive at something we can live with.  I’m having to do a lot more customizing of the theme layout than I did in earlier versions of the same theme.  This was kind of frustrating and exciting at the same time knowing I have some more flexibility.

I ended up not being able to access the site for awhile – as a matter of fact, NONE of my sites hosted on GoDaddy were available.  After finally getting through to the helpful folks at GoDaddy, we finally determined that it was my router that was screwing up and not letting me access the sites hosted at Go Daddy.  All other operations were operating normally which was really confusing.  I had even turned everything off and rebooted all the devices and still no luck.  Eventually after doing some research I messed around with the MAC addresses in the router and now everything is working again.  Very strange…

Started uploading photos to the site for use later.  And I again found a little annoying problem with the plugin used in Lightroom to upload directly to the wordpress site.  It seems it’s security related and keys off how often the site receives access requests; too many in too short of time blocks access.  Now I’m tweaking the parameters in that plugin’s settings to see if I can reduce or eliminate that issue.  I may have to completely rename the offending php file and re-program WordPress to use the newly-named file.  Kind of annoying that I have to do this but apparently it’s a fairly common problem.

Anyway it’s time to run out to get dinner ready for the family as we’re turning around quickly and heading out to an Audubon meeting tonight where we’re bringing refreshments.  Tomorrow will be a busy day (hopefully the weather will cooperate with me some more) as I have three photo shoots to work on including one twilight shot what will take a couple of hours to work through.  That’s not including the editing time which will add another 2-3 hours to that.
