A couple days ago I updated my blog to WordPress 4.7.4, which was primarily a bug fix update. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. No issues to report with this update. Everything seems to have gone well.
Just wanted to wish a Happy Easter to everyone. I think this is my first Easter holiday post and I’m not sure why. Well, I think there might be one way back in the archives before I had a blog since I did have some older Easter images. Anyway, hope everyone has a great day!
Well, I had to add Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to my Blu-ray collection. I have also updated my Home Theater page accordingly. It is an excellent movie which I highly recommend. Thankfully my Blu-ray player had no issues with it.
Also, as a follow-up to my earlier post, DVD/Blu-ray Pages Updated With HTML5 Player, I have completed adding trailers to all the movie pages where one was available to download or create. Many of them list a page created date of “Before March 19, 2003” because that’s the earliest time I could figure out based on file dates. That date was probably when I copied the images over to a new PC or hard drive and is why they were are all the same.
Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Everyone be safe out there and don’t do anything stupid like drinking and/or texting while driving. You know, I’ve never had green beer and still probably won’t this year.
I just updated my blog to WordPress 4.7.3, which was primarily a security update. As always I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand.
There was one slight problem with the update. My Facebook and Google+ share buttons on my posts quit showing, but only if I used the official buttons in Jetpack’s Sharing settings. It turns out that the Custom Tweaks for Jetpack plugin I was using to display the buttons on top of the posts was causing it. After disabling it, the buttons reappeared. I made a support thread in both the Jetpack and Custom Tweaks for Jetpack support forums. I may look for something else or just leave it as is.
So, other than this plugin conflict, everything else seems fine.
Update March 14, 2017: After Jetpack was updated to Version 4.7.1, the official buttons show again even with the Custom Tweaks for Jetpack plugin enabled. So, they changed something.
