I transitioned our family’s blog from being hosted on Apple’s soon-to-be-cancelled iWeb service over to the ever-consistent WordPress service. For most people who just visit the website: http://webelfamily.com , you will not need to do anything different, that same address will now take you to the new location. However, if you subscribe to the blog using “RSS”, then the feed has changed and you’ll need to delete the old feed and re-subscribe to the blog’s new RSS feed!
There is also an option to have an Email sent to you every time the blog is updated, so if you are not into RSS, but you’d like to make sure you don’t miss any blog posts, click on the “+ Follow” button on the lower right corner of the blog and you’ll be prompted to enter your Email address.
Come by and visit the family blog and make a comment or two – Erica LOVES to get comments on her blog posts!
Since I started this blog here at SteveWebel.com (after Erica took over my original blog!) I’ve posted 200 posts…
Some of the readers of my blog who are into this sort of thing know that I use the blogging software known as WordPress to publish SteveWebel.com . Well, I upgraded to version 2.6 today using WordPress Automatic Upgrade which automatically upgrades your wordpress installation to the latest one provided by wordpress.org by just clicking on a link. Easy, right?
Everything seemed to go smoothly, but then I couldn’t log back in to my admin page (where I write new posts and manage all the settings of the blog.) I have to admit, with all the issues Erica is having with her blog as a result of Apple‘s problems migrating from .Mac to “MobileMe”, I became very nervous that we were both gonna be hurtin in the blogging arena.
However, after a few minutes of trouble shooting and trying a few things, I thought about resetting my browser (I’m using Apple’s Safari browser.) I had read that one of the ‘upgrades’ in v2.6 was a new way of handling “cookies”, by resetting Safari, I would wipe out the old cookies and get a fresh start, so to speak.
Well, it worked! Whew! Crisis averted.
Okay, if you made it this far in this post, congratulations, you are probably the only one!
