Website Changes for February 2016

Main Website

I added links to the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Schedule and Chase Formats for each series to my NASCAR page.


Updated my blog to WordPress 4.4.2. It was mainly a bug fix from the looks of it. As usual I performed backups of my file structure and database before applying the update. This is also a test post to make it all still works fine. :)

All I have for now. If I make any other changes worth noting, I’ll update this post. :)

Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas for 2015!

EQ2 Christmas Tree 2015Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas for 2015! :) There’s some cruddy weather in many places so everyone take it easy out there and stay safe as well. Oh, the Christmas tree on the left is the one in the city of Maldura in EverQuest II. :)

I’m including one of my favorite Christmas Lights to Wizards in Winter music videos again. I hope you enjoy it!

Website Changes for December 2015


Updated the blog to WordPress v4.4. Did the usual backing up of the database and file structure before applying the update. I then added my various code tweaks back in.  This update did include a newer version of the Twenty Twelve theme which my blog uses a child theme of. Since none of the files I am using in my child theme were updated in the parent theme, I didn’t need to modify anything. This version did introduce a new Twenty Sixteen default theme which I’ll check out locally.


Updated both of my galleries (mine, Mysstie’s) to Zenphoto v1.4.11. 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. I then added my customization back into the html_meta_tags.php file since I use a custom og:image image that matches the image shown on the page.

Well, that’s all I can think of for now. If I change anything else, I’ll add it to this post. :)
