Yes, my website has changed again. I hadn’t intended to change it, but the WordPress theme I was using updated yesterday. Normally it’s not a problem, but yesterday? Major issues where I couldn’t even log into my site anymore and my site was down.  After some fiddling around, I found a way to get into the site. Once in I discovered that even deleting the old copy and downloading a fresh version didn’t fix the issue — in my humble opinion, something is wrong with the coding of the original doc. So as much as I loved the simple look of that theme, I had to trash it and start fresh with a new theme.

Luckily I didn’t lose any of my pages or data, although I did have a fairly recent backup of the site I could have drawn on if I’d needed to (which is a warning to anyone with data that is important, being it a website database or a single document – back up, back up, back up!)

I’ll probably be tweaking it in the coming weeks. But that’s par for the course for me.

But while you’re wandering around the site, if you find any links that aren’t working, or anything that’s not looking right, let me know so I can fix it.

In the meantime, I’m back to working on the long-awaited Wrangling the Past…
