Photo Albums are now Posts

After much tweaking of WordPress and Photospace codes, I have made the photo albums POSTS not PAGES. This way they show up in the news feed// or on the home page. Think I am good to go — to get scanning all the oldie but goodie photos and get them up here for all to enjoy. LOL.


Updated WordPress to 3.5

Well finally this blog has a current/new theme that is working – Twenty Twelve and I just upgraded WordPress core to 3.5 and see no problems!
Now I just need to update core in all my other installs of WordPress.. and then I should have some time to start adding photo galleries to this site.
This is all good.

And yesterday I looked at this site on a 7″ tablet to see how responsive Twenty Twelve was and it worked great, although the sidebar images did seem to ‘squish’ a bit. Will have to ask about that. And I looked around the web as well and found out that the simple white background shows up soooo much better on the tablets and phone, that if your audience uses those handhelds, then keep it simple for them.


New Theme Twenty Twelve with some tweaks

I have been working on customizing ever so slightly the default WordPress theme Twenty Twelve, and finally put it on this site.
I will have many more tweaks to do, but all seems to be functioning well at this point.

I wanted to get in in place and test here before the roll out of WordPress 3.5 which is imminent, to make sure if there were problems I could isolate to theme or core functions.

I also intend to start a photo gallery on this site, which will happen slowly as I scan old images and clean them up. I have another site with a photo gallery as well, and that one will become live again just after 3.5 rolls out.

I may be switching back and forth a bit to the older theme, as I figure out a few things.


River and Creek Photos 29 Nov – 2 Dec

Humboldt County was hit with several strong storms last week,
Hazardous Weather Outlook and the Storm Reports.

The best thing about these storms was the amount of rainfall.. rivers went from a trickle you could walk across to this.. almost overnight.

Testing Wordbooker

This is a test of a WordPress to Facebook plugin. Testing from my personal blog in case it blows up. Several clients want this now, and I hope it works flawlessly. I think it will work better with a photo in the post, but often the posts from clients won’t have photos, so curious what it will do.

Well straight off it pulled a thumbnail from my sidebar to use. I guess each client will need a ‘special’ image to tell it to pull if no images are in the post.


Migrating OnMyBeat from MT to WP

This process may take a lot of time. [this is now done]
I will try to do this transfer as quickly as possible.
But I still have to get a WordPress theme into place before I start that part. Yes I could of hidden all this, but really how many people really check in here? I hope to change that with a WP install, and comments live again.

I am going to go with this super simple and plain theme to start. I will do some colors/ fonts/ backgrounds/images and such customizing then get to the process of transferring all the posts and images.
