I’ve decided to knock the WPblog in the head. The reasons are simple and two fold.
Firstly, it doesn’t give me anything I haven’t already got with my webpage SEE HERE to make it work like a blog. Just scroll down the page, click on the links to see what I mean.
Secondly, I am having no problems with BCUK anymore apart from the rogue php text at the top of today’s page. :)) :)) :)) which disappeared shortly after typing this, they must have been updating the blog, realised it was there and deleted it. Funny. Also, which is important, I have a nice friends list which is easier on the eye than the widgets on WP offering the same albeit inferior service. And nice friends of course…grovel grovel…
All the widgets are made by individuals and many need to be modified to suit the blog in question, it’s not just a question of “Activate” and off you go. Not all the widgets are easy to install and not all work, it depends which version of WP you have and it depends whether your provider has updated the SQL database with the most up to date one. Most widgets are new and as such assume the WP version is the most recent. Add to that the fact that even though I’m not a BCUK “Pro”, I have a gradually increasing amount of media space for images etc mainly due to the fact that the longer you are with BCUK and the more you post, the more Mb download space “credits” you accrue. And it’s all done for me. So I stay here and contemplate whether WP is worth pursuing even if it is just for educational value.
Today was a home day, doing the washing while Astrid is at work busy making adverts for the local paper HERE and while it was busy washing away, I had a wander down to the reservoir, watched a bloke feeding the trout with bread, talking to a bloke who was making a background film for BBC Look North and admiring the scenery. The sheep was trying to get to the bloke feeding the fish, he sometimes chucks some bread into the fold for them. He’s got the fish and sheep well trained but his dog is a bit of a nutter so he keeps it on a lead. The sheep tried to nut the dog once and seem to think it is fair game. It’s a Welsh collie, so nuff said.
