Apparently trying to rebuild a blog whilst sick is not the way to go. I started to get sick on the weekend and it steadily got worse until Monday when I could tell my brain functions were at an all time low.
Anyway, I discovered that wordpress creates 3 versions of every image you upload (sometimes even 6 or 7), so before I could upload all my images, I had to go through every folder (every year since 2007 with monthly folders) and delete the extra copies of everything. That took ages. and AGESSSSSSSS.
I then began to upload them to the server, then had to download them to the wordpress media gallery, but then for some reason it is not showing the correct links so I have to manually go through every single post and replace the image with exactly the same one. In my mucus hazed light bulb moment, I thought that if i imported all the posts perhaps it would pull all the correct images from the media file.
All that did was duplicate every single image. AGAIN!!!?!?!
So I am now, slowly and painfully, going through every image and deleting the duplicates and sorting through the most recent posts to replace the images so they show. I am also doing my events pages as well since they are the most read thing on my blog. So please bear with me whilst I try and get this place back in order!
I have also created a FB page Azerothian Life to connect to. I am unlikely to ever update it aside from the direct linkage of posts, but Twitter annoyed me so much the other day I am thinking of deleting my account. Every time i tried to post something it told me my account was locked…I was completely over it after the 5th time.
What do you think of the new layout? I am not sure of it…I think i prefer a blog that has the posts in a reading view rather than having to click on each post..but for tracking what posts are being read I prefer this format??? In an effort to reduce the chances of being hacked I am trying to use a basic theme that is already designed and just go with that rather than hacking something together like my previous one.
