Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Added to Blu-ray Collection

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Blu-ray coverWell, 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.

Blog Updated to WordPress v4.7.3

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. :)

Galleries Updated to Zenphoto v1.4.14

Updated both of my galleries (mine, Mysstie’s) to Zenphoto v1.4.14. Normally I follow their upgrade instructions and backup the themes and zp-core directories as well as the database before copying over the new files; however, Windiff showed that /zp-core/version.php and /zp-core/githead were the only modified files from the previous v1.4.13 master that I installed a few days ago to correct a couple things with the Flash player not sizing properly when a .FLV was used. (I am replacing these with .MP4 versions as I go along.)

Anyway, all I did was backup the databases and copy those two files over. The only odd thing it did during the setup was modify the .htaccess file by adding an extra “/” after my RewriteBase / line such that it had RewriteBase // and it made the file read-only with permission 444 on the webhost. I changed it back to permission 644 and removed the extra “/” on that line. I made a support thread on the Zenphoto forum to see if this is intended behavior or not. Other than that, everything seems to have gone well. :)
