Blog Updated to WordPress v6.0.2

Just updated my blog to WordPress v6.0.2 which was a security and maintenance release with several bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. As I usually do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating the blog here.

My TwentyTwelve parent theme was not updated so I did not have to worry about anything affecting my child theme.

I am now using the work around posted here to be able to highlight text I’ve selected with a color I choose. Although, if I select text near the right side of the editor, the color palette is partially hidden as well. I can live with this until they fix the [Advanced Editor Tools (previously TinyMCE Advanced)] plugin. So, far this update seems to have gone well. 🙂

Blog Updated to WordPress v6.0.1

Just updated my blog to WordPress v6.0.1 which was a maintenance release with several bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. As I usually do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating the blog here.

My TwentyTwelve parent theme was not updated so I did not have to worry about anything affecting my child theme. They still haven’t improved the selected text color selection so it’s not hidden slightly behind the right-side settings bar beyond what 5.9.2 did. I made this post about it: [Advanced Editor Tools (previously TinyMCE Advanced)] Text Color Custom Popup below Side Bar. Other than that, the update seems to have gone well. 🙂

Happy Father’s Day 2022!

Happy Father's Day

Wishing everyone a Happy Father’s Day, especially mine! Love you Dad and hope you’re doing well! You’re the best! Yeah, I know, I’m recycling the same image I used the last ten years LOL, but how could I not? After all, his name is also Dale Jr. 🙂

Happy Memorial Day 2022!

A thank you to all the men and women in the armed forces who have served and sacrificed themselves for America, as well as, those who continue to serve. I also wish for everyone to stay safe and remain healthy.
