This week our friends at Modern Charlotte Realty called us because they were having trouble forwarding a domain with Godaddy.com. Since this was not the first time someone had asked us to do this we thought we’d put together a how-to video that explains what you need to do.
If you still have problems feel free to contact us and we’ll help you forward your domain with Godaddy.com.
Their old website was built a few years back and users were finding it hard to navigate.
In creating the new site the biggest point of emphasis was to make sure that consistent navigation was had throughout and that they had the ability to maintain the site. By creating a custom theme and using WordPress as their content management system we were able to accomplish both of those goals.
The official statement from the WordPress blog said:
“After more than a million downloads of WordPress 3.2, we’re now releasing WordPress 3.2.1 into the wild. This maintenance release fixes a server incompatibility related to JSON that’s unfortunately affected some of you, as well as a few other fixes in the new dashboard design and the Twenty Eleven theme.
For a full list of fixes, view the changelog the list of tickets. Our release haiku:
JSON, the admin
A little bit tidier
Edge cases covered
Download 3.2.1 or update now from the Dashboard → Updates menu in your site’s admin area.”
In looking through our Google Analytics this week we noticed that more and more of our visitors were coming from mobile devices. Due to the number of projects we’re working we didn’t have the time to develop a mobile theme so we started looking for mobile plugins for WordPress.
A lot of our work now-a-days has come in the form of creating custom themes for WordPress. When building a custom theme for WordPress we name our themes for many reasons but the most important is that if we just put our theme into the default folder or the twentyten folder then when a WordPress update is done the theme can be overwritten and if you don’t have a backup, gone forever.
To name your theme just follow these simple steps:Read more
Most users were hoping that the next release would be WordPress 3.2 but an issue that could allow a malicious Editor-level user to gain further access to the site had to be fixed before 3.2 was released.
