Wishing everyone a Happy Veterans Day and reminding everyone to remember our troops, past and present, and the sacrifices they and their families have made, not only on this day, but every day. 🙂 Thank you for your service!
♫ Trick or Treat. Smell my feet. Give me something good to eat! ♫ LOL!
Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween for 2018! Boo! 🎃 While I doubt any trick-or-treaters will show up to my apartment, I’ll still get myself some candy. 👻
Well, Twitter finally went and did it. They killed their search widgets. All the search widgets stopped working on my web pages today. 🙁 They’ve been planning this for awhile: Deprecating widget settings – Announcements – Twitter Developers . The following pages are now missing their widgets: my Weather, NASCAR, and Entertainment Page, as well as the EverQuest II search at Mysstie.
So, for now, all I can do is provide links directly to Twitter, like #okwx OR #okfire OR #okquake – Twitter Search. Blah… Sigh.
I am trying to decide if I want to change the font I use. I was prompted to do so after trying out the new WordPress Gutenberg editor which happened use the font. I am also testing out this WP-Polls | WordPress.org plugin. Just more curious than anything. I also wonder how this will come across on my main website. Hmmm.
- This paragraph is in the original font which was
font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 1234567890
- This paragraph is in the new font which is
font-family: 'Noto Serif', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 1234567890
I used the google webfonts helper to download all the necessary font files and CSS to host the fonts locally and not depend on a third party site.
Oh, I’ll make another post about my experiences with this new editor. 🤔
I just updated my blog to WordPress v4.9.8. “This maintenance release fixes 46 bugs, enhancements and blessed tasks, including updating the Twenty Seventeen bundled theme..” As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. So far, the update seems to have gone smoothly. 😃
