Never send a monkey to do a code monkey’s job

October 18th, 2007 by Troy Goodfellow · 6 Comments · Me

Nothing could be easier than upgrading your WordPress software, eh? Well, a combination of plug-ins, database mismatches and general incompetence on my part led to a few hours of panic this afternoon as I considered the possibility of losing months of data.

Patrick at POEHosting, however, saved my ass as we went back and forth over an hour while he understood the problem and forced a solution. Thanks a lot. It was really appreciated.

Now I just need to get my banner back online, and my sidebar re-set.

    Wow, that’s just a little different. :)

    Not finished the revamp yet. I figured that while I was upgrading, I might as well change the theme, too.

    Still need to get the banner up, find a way to get those archive and about buttons to work and other stuff.

    But three columns is a good thing.

    Whoa! I woke up in the wrong reality again. :)

    This is sweet! Liking the new look.

    Hey cool, upgrade! It’s different, so it’ll take a bit of adjustment before I’m used to the layout. I’m sure it will be better with the proper banner in place.

    Ouch. It scales the banner? I’ll jump in and see if I can fix that…
