Blog Updated to WordPress v5.9.1

Just updated my blog to WordPress v5.9.1 which was a maintenance and bug fix release. 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.

No themes were updated to I didn’t have to do anything to my TwentyTwelve child theme. So far the upgrade seems to have gone well. πŸ™‚ They even improved the selected text color selection so it’s not so much hidden behind the right-side bar. I made this post about it: [Advanced Editor Tools (previously TinyMCE Advanced)] Text Color Custom Popup below Side Bar.

Website Updates for February 2022

Well, it’s be some time since I’ve made one of these posts so I figured why not. πŸ™‚

Website Update

Main Website

Over time I’ve made various tweaks to my main website. The most notable might be my Weather page where I fixed the radar image and added a link to an alternate radar which shows the winter mix. I updated my MOD page to including the beta WACUP player. The 64-bit version even plays MOD files. In addition, I updated the NASCAR page to include 2022 links and information. Once the Daytona 500 completes, the Driver Standings list will be updated.

I also updated my WACUP/64 Now Playing/History ⚡ page to differentiate between the 32 and 64-bit versions of WACUP. The 64-bit version supports a reduced number of file formats currently, so I still play the bulk of my music with the 32-bit version.

Company of Valor

I went through the Company of Valor website to check which links have gone bad. So I removed, updated, and added some new links on the Resources/Links page.

Pelicar

I then went through the Pelicar website and removed and updated the links on the Links page. I also updated the footer section to show the last update time being in the Central Time Zone. Eventually I’ll do the same with the other pages on the site.

Mysstie

On Mysstie’s website I updated the links on the Landmark page. I then removed some links on Mysstie Wolfestar’s EverQuest I UI page. As usual, I’m always updating the character data when needed.


Well, I guess that’s all for now. πŸ™‚

Blog Updated to WordPress v5.9

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.9 which contains quite a few updates including a new Twenty TwentyTwo theme that’s designed around Gutenberg blocks. I’ll explore this theme later. 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 Twenty Twelve theme was also updated to version 3.6 but did not contain any changes I would need to make to my child theme. So far the update seems to have gone well. πŸ™‚

Blog Updated to WordPress 5.8.3

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.8.3 which contains mainly some security 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.

Since none of the themes were updated I didn’t have to worry about any changes with them. So far, the update seems to have gone fine. πŸ™‚
