CategorySite Development

Server Speed

The site is really slow right now. I am working with the ISP to make it better, and they are replacing some equipment to make it work better. From what I understand, they are done, but it does not seem to be any better. I will have to send another email to get it improved.

Bear with me until I can get it improved.

Server Down

Sorry that the site was down for so long! I was in the process of moving, and there has been more important things to do. As you can imagine, this was one of the last things on the list. How important is it to get something up that doesn’t make any money? It is up now though, and I am glad to see if back. This little thing makes me proud.

I will be posting more in the common days. There are a lot of things to talk about, and I am very sad to say that my Saints lost this past week to Dallas. How in the world did they do that? I hope that it was just an off day.

New Design

As you can tell, I have made some changes to the site. I am not completly done, but I would say that I am almost there. There are a lot of little tweaks that need to be made here and there, but I like it better. There are a lot of little subtle differences that make it much better to me. I also have more control over things. In fact, the possibilities are infinite with this site design. I can easily add and remove things. It was something that I was missing with WordPress. I think that WordPress is great, but it lacks the ability to change that I like. Drupal gives you the ability to change things easily. It did take a day to get everything running behind the scenes, but I think that the changes were well worth it.

Trying out iPhone App to blog

Just testing out to see if the site works with the new application that I downloaded. It allows you to blog right from the phone without having to go into the wp-admin section! That is awesome!

It took me awhile to get this to work, but I had to change the location of php function to wp_head in the theme that I was using. By placing it at the top of the header section, everything magicaly worked!

New Site…

I am in the process of building a new site for a co-worker. I just got the domain setup, and I am going to be building the site during the week. We will see how things go on this. It will be located at thedonutdepot.com. I am hoping to include an online order system, and I will be taking a theme and reworking it for this site. Of course, I will be using Drupal for this build. I think that it is the best CMS out there.
