WordPress Upgrade Blues

Sometime in the past week this site went buggy.

I am not sure what went wrong, but there have been a large number of upgrades rolling out…Plugins, WordPress Engine…Something just caused all of the dropdown menus used throughout WordPress to quit working.

I have already tried using a different, new install with the exact same results. The place this problem really shows up though is when you try to do anything with the sidebars of this site. You can’t do any thing at all on the widgets page…nada. No drag and drop, no open the second sidebar, nothing.

I have managed to cludge together a semi-fix by editing the actual sidebar files. So, until I manage to figure a way to fix the site, that will have to do.

So, for the time being, please pardon the dust…I hope to fix all of this soon.

Welcome to our new place…

After a couple of years of hanging out at Blogger with this blog, I’ve decided it’s time to move into roomier digs. It wasn’t that the folks at blogger weren’t treating me right. They have been nothing but hospitable since I first signed on to their service.

But the paint on the walls was getting old. I had spun off Coffee Muses to a self hosted WordPress blog and was happy with the freedom to paint the walls at will, put in a new picture window if I wanted, even raise the roof on occasion to let in some fresh air. I wanted the same freedom with this blog.

Granted, this site has been neglected somewhat in the year or so since I rolled my daily muses out of these pages. Believe me, it wasn’t intentional. I just felt then, and I continue to feel, that a blog with the name this one has shouldn’t spend so much time talking about living on the Texas Gulf Coast…

So anyhow, I am in this process of slapping a coat of paint on these new walls, hanging a few pictures, putting up a handbill or two to try and pay for the hosting account at least. I’ll be adding some relevant link pages, searching out news and sites that have a North Carolina Mountain message.

Consider the welcome mat out at our new home. Come around and check on the progress. If the light switch doesn’t work, or the door knob falls off, send me a note…I’ll try and figure out what I screwed up. You can reach me here inĀ  the comments or send me an email at gwboyd at gmail.com…I’ll keep the light on out on the porch in case it’s late when ya stop by…
