This is both happy and crummy all at once. I’m happy and feel more comfortable with this platform. We’re still using WordPress, of course, but it is hosted on a real web server and supported by the folks at WordPress. This has it’s pros and cons. Some pros include much faster response and higher availability. It also has a lot of cool items already built in so there’s no installing of plug ins or other various add-ins. Some cons would be that certain things cannot be changed. I can’t really customize the look and feel of the site too much. I can apply several themes but am not able to drill in and really tweak the settings. Another major con is the fact that I might not be able to restore all the old posts from the other server. I will make every effort to do this but it might not work out.
I also canceled any plans to resurrect the MFO: Forum. The blog provides plenty of space for discussion and people can even become authors and have their own channel here. It all depends on you!
I want to create a new home page that highlights new blog posts as well as current music played on XRT-FM. I have everything laid out I just need to learn how to publish the page. I expect this to be a summer project. Stick with me, you will not be disappointed.
I need to thank David again for his unending support and for the free use of his equipment and bandwidth for these past few years. I could not have done as much if it was based on pay services. Thank you, Dave!
