WordPress Automatic Upgrade

August 10th, 2009 by Iain · 2 Comments

What a fabulous plugin   Having previously ballsed up a upgrade, I had been reluctant to upgrade WordPress and risk losing the site as a whole.  Fortunately I chanced upon the WordPress Automatic Upgrade (WPAU) plugin, and decided to risk it.  Worked a treat!

Fixed (ish)

February 8th, 2008 by Iain · No Comments

Well I’m almost there.  The good news is that email notification for Gallery comments is now installed and working.  So you’d better start commenting on some pics!! The bad news is that the plugin which displayed the random Gallery image at the top of the right hand side bar doesn’t work any more.     I’ll [...]

I seem to have broken things somewhat! That’ll teach me for fiddling! Hopefully I’ll be able to get things back up and running at some point today…

New Look

January 8th, 2008 by Iain · 1 Comment

As you can see, I have made changes to the template here for the homepage, despite saying I wasn’t going to yet! However, the change was forced on me I wanted to increase the picture size when blogging a picture from my Flickr account, but it was just too wide for the old template. So, [...]

The Gallery

January 3rd, 2008 by Iain · 2 Comments

I have now created the gallery. It is currently just on the default template and I haven’t even begun to investigate my options. I’m sure it’ll be fairly plain though! (Not through my lack of creative juices, but because I don’t want to detract from my marvellous photography ) Note – the links (above and [...]

Change of Plan

January 1st, 2008 by Iain · No Comments

I had previously said that I was going to keep the Blogger front page, but have since changed my mind. After posting that, I tried to make some template changes and found some limitations with Blogger when publishing via FTP to my website. So, I took another look at WordPress and wasn’t quite so scared [...]

New Home

December 29th, 2007 by Iain · 2 Comments

Just a quick post to say we’ve moved. The hosting of the website that is, not physically! It’s been a long time coming (forging a new career got in the way) but I’ve wanted to sack 1&1 for a long time now. It wasn’t so much that their server went bang and lost everything, it [...]

The West Ring 2.0

November 22nd, 2006 by Iain · No Comments

Whilst working on the basic layout for my website I had a think about what it was going to contain. The important bit is the photo gallery, and the blog would contain any ramblings, so why bother with a homepage? After all, what was I going to put on there other than links to the [...]

This Comes To You From a Broken Home

November 18th, 2006 by Iain · No Comments

…page. Well, kinda. I’ve torn down the main website, and am going to have a go at building something halfway decent. Seeing as I have no computer hacking skills, no design skills, and no bow hunting skills* it may take some time… * If that’s not making any sense, then go watch Napoleon Dynamite.

Moblogging Progress…

November 15th, 2006 by Iain · No Comments

…of a sort. I’ve managed to get the email client configured on the 6280, but things are far from easy. To send an MMS: view pic, choose send, the pic is resized and sent. Unfortunately, this particular Poxia dumbphone doesn’t give you the option to send as email, unlike most other phones. The upshot is [...]
