Current Site Status

Temporary solutions often become permanent problems.

—Craig Bruce

WarningA log of known issues and “undocumented features.”

I’m using this page to keep track of any site issues.

Current Status: All is well.

2018

June 19, 2018: My site is experiencing a few issues. I’m in the middle of a major cleanup with help from the folks at Monterey Premier.

May 7, 2018: Divi caused an issue with my contact forms not working. Temp fix applied.

2017

June 23, 2017: Widgets in footer and sidebars mysteriously disappeared. All good now.

2016

February 3, 2016: There was a problem with the navigation menu. All is better now.

2015

August 27, 2015: All better now. Looks like it was an image-optimization issue after all. Kraken really helped.

August 22, 2015: The site is loading slower than normal. Most likely, this stems from possible plug-in conflicts with WordPress 4.3. Resolution pending.

March 18, 2015: Date issue for events is fixed; they are now showing up with the event date, not the date on which I published the event.

January 23, 2015: Tab issue appears to finally be fixed. Superfluous carriages kept appearing, driving me crazy.

2014

December 26, 2014: The sites for my third and fourth books (www.thenewsmall.com and www.theageoftheplatform.com) now redirect to their corresponding pages on this site.

November 27, 2014: Minor tweaks, including fixed links to some of the book pages.

November 3, 2014: I had a few things miscoded like the The Next Wave of Technologies book page related posts. I also fixed a few misplaced carriages. These little buggers are pesky. They keep reappearing. Divi knows that this is an issue and evidently is working on a fix.

October 31, 2014: Event videos have been fixed. There was some type of strange Vimeo short code conflict with either a plugin or the theme. I had to replace all videos. Thank heavens for TextExpander.

October 22, 2014: New site is live. There were a few minor images issues but all seems to be well. There are a few minor formatting issues that will be fixed in the next day or so.

September 10, 2014: Posts from www.theageoftheplatform.com have now been ported over. There may be a few lingering image and URL issues. Construction

September 3, 2014: Site search was broken; it’s fixed now.

June 21, 2014: Navigation menu issue appears to be solved. This one was very tricky and probably plugin-related.

June 9, 2014: Navigation menu has been acting strange; sidebar is not appearing on the side. Looking into this.

February 6, 2014: I rolled back the site a few weeks to try to isolate the issue. Everything appears to be back to normal. Posts were briefly deleted.

February 3, 2014: There are some bizarre CSS issues, perhaps stemming from a plug-in. The iPad version is also broken. It might be an iOS 7.0.4 issue. I’m on it.

2013

November 18, 2013: Site home page was missing; it was defaulting to a list of blog posts. Probably a WordPress issue. Restored.

June 26, 2013, 6:00 pm: All better.

June 26, 2013, 12:00 pm: Some YouTube videos in posts aren’t appearing correctly. There’s an issue with the responsive video plug-in. I’m working with my developer on the issue. There’s also an issue with the mobile site because of a WP Engine/Zerigo issue.
