It’s only been a month, and few days since the last post. In a bit to prevent spam comments on the site I installed akismet. However that resulted in the site breaking and me left with a 500 server error with not a clue what the hey was going on.
After finally fixing the issue and being able to access the site, the spam comments seemed to be getting worse – roughly 2-3 almost every 5 minutes. So had to re-break the site and leave it hanging with a 500 error.
Fast forward to today, finally got the site back online, spam control installed and functional AND also got the child theme back up :D.
First order of business is light clean up of posts and refresh images and links. Other tasks to follow:
Update change log
Extend child theme
I missed making an entry on the anniversary itself as I was pretty much flying for nearly 14 hours yesterday (2nd Feb) not counting boarding, transit and the other pointless rigmarole. But here we are, third year:
Domain and hosting has been brought under one roof
Multi-site WordPress installed
Custom theme still to be imported
One thing I’ve noticed moving is that I have nearly 2000 spam comments. Not certain if Bluehost’s proprietary WordPress setup contained anti spam controls or what not. Also all my media files are AWOL as well.
That will next on the agenda with with either a sub-site or another WordPress site for all the other development topics I’ve been itching to explore and write about.

I just managed to import all posts from the previous wordpress blog and nearly had a conniption, as subdued as my demeanor allows. Yes, quite. So between reinvigorating this blog and other much needed maintenance – key being bringing my custom theme back – stay tuned!
