Catching some rays out on the patio while checking out the WordPress app. Posting this just to see how the editor works, and just because I can…
Okay, let’s try this again.
The last time I posted anything here was over 5 years ago, and I thought that was a long time. Time really flies… Anyway, Lisa wanted to revive the blog and write regular updates so I’m back at this, too.
Stay tuned for updates to this site. Things will be changing as I figure out what needs to be here and what doesn’t, and maybe I’ll add some features if someone asks nicely. 🙂
If only WordPress had come along 20 years ago. I’d have made much better use of it. I was blogging before blogging was a thing, but maybe I’ll get back to it when I retire.
I haven’t done anything here in a long time — not that I planned on doing much anyway, but I did think I would have done more than I have. It’s a very good thing that I didn’t get too creative with my username and password or I wouldn’t have remembered it because it’s just been too long … and I’m not as young as I was.
Anyway, I decided to log in and check on things, and saw that there were a few updates available so I updated everything. There was also a new default WordPress theme available for 2015 so I changed the theme here. If you remember what the old layout looked like, please let me know if this one is better or worse than that one. 🙂
Thanks, and Happy New Year!
Ok, so I’ve been trying to figure out how to add featured images to the site and finally managed it. If I upload an image it works pretty well but I have been completely unable to access the images in the WP library on my PC. Today I tried it with my iPhone and almost got it but couldn’t quite close the deal. I could hear the filenames but couldn’t tap the button to add the selected image. This afternoon I tried it on my iPad and it worked!
Then I moved on to adding buttons to share posts on social media and email, and I think that I got it but it doesn’t seem to be working on posts, just pages so I need to take another look at the settings.
I’m getting more comfortable with this… 🙂
I was reading about how to modify themes with child themes. It looks like it is coded in PHP…
I just installed WordPress at roggeman.com but I still don’t know what to do with it. I simply wanted to play around and see if I can figure out how WP works.
