Blog Updated to WordPress v4.5

Just a quick post to mention I updated my blog to WordPress v4.5. As always, I backed up the files and database before applying the update. This also serves as a test post to make sure everything still works. The Twenty Twelve theme which I use was updated but no changes were made that affected my child theme. I used WinDiff to compare the current and backed up theme directories and none of the updated files affected me. :)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Added to Blu-ray Collection

Star Wars: The Force AwakensWell, I just had to go out and buy Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens on Blu-ray and add it to my collection. I have updated my DVD/Home Theater page accordingly. Even though my Blu-ray player is a bit old, it loaded and played the movie fine (the player took like 10 minutes before it would start letting me play Interstellar). I really liked the movie and can’t wait for Rogue One later this year and the following movies. :)

Galleries Updated to Zenphoto v1.4.12

Updated both of my galleries (mine, Mysstie’s) to Zenphoto v1.4.12. Followed their upgrade instructions and backed up the themes and zp-core directories as well as the database before copying over the new files.  I then used Windiff and code comparisons in PSPad to integrate any new changes in the default Garland theme into my custom Garland theme. The news.php file was the only modified file in this version from the previous.  I then added my customizations back into the html_meta_tags.php file since I use a custom og:image image that matches the image shown on the page. So far everything seems to work great! :)
