Current Site Status
A log of issues and my efforts to solve them.
Temporary solutions often become permanent problems.
March 20, 2019: My site should be running much faster now. Bye bye Font Awesome.
January 31, 2019: Funky button issue on home page on iPad. Fixed.
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.
June 23, 2017: Widgets in footer and sidebars mysteriously disappeared. All good now.
February 3, 2016: There was a problem with the navigation menu. All is better now.
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.
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.
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.
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.
