More on the Site issues.

As you may have noticed.. The site (And the others on our shared host) has been buggy as hell the last couple weeks. Bluehost has been GREAT as far as trying to help, but the move from a lower cost to a higher cost has changed the problems rather than eliminate them.

For all you wordpress guru’s who may be asking if the problems are related to wordpress. NO. We don’t think so. It has to do with the domain name servers/server etc… Our sites are functioning fine, matter of fact better than ever WHEN THEY ARE VISIBLE.

As of now things are good. IF you happen to see something like this:

Please when the site comes back email me (Click mail box on sidebar) or drop a comment and let me know when it happened. This will help get to the bottom of the issue if its still a problem. As of right now: This is the first day that I didn’t see that screen on any of our sites. That’s a good sign.

It will back to normal and better in the near future. I promise.

If you are looking for a good hosting company I’d suggest you look into Bluehost. I’ve been with a couple of hosts and they are by far the best of the best.




Template change…

Template change…

Hey Yall, While I was working on a friends blog a new template was found that I really like, I changed a few things and I have some more things to change, but overall I like this. You will notice when you comment the sidebar is gone, (faster load time) you have the ability to collapse posts and comments too. ( The little minus signs in the right hand corner) I will be changing the background tomorrow,  the flags are cool but it’s a little too busy for me on the big screen.

I am still fine tuning it, trying to get it the same in IE and FF is a chore, and I will be working on it off and for a bit… I will try to leave it off of “Maintenance Mode” so all of my “RACIST” views can be obtained by the FBI and certain Local Gubmint officialsin the LBC.

Partial success.

Partial success.

After many hours of frustrating work, the good technical support of BlueHost host and some luck, WE were able to save my previous posts, and the comments. Unfortunately the Tags and Categories I used on prior posts were lost, BUT I know now how to save them for future moves.

American and Proud is back, and on 2.6.

So far 2.6 seems stable. Those of you looking to switch should make sure your server is compatible with the new version.

Some advantages of the new version:

* Word count! Never guess how many words are in your post anymore.
* Image captions, so you can add captions under your images.
* Bulk management of plugins.
* A completely revamped image control to allow for easier inserting, floating, and resizing. It’s now fully integrated with the WYSIWYG.
* Drag-and-drop reordering of Galleries.
* Plugin update notification bubble. Lets you know when a plugin needs to be upgraded.
* Customizable default avatars.
* You can now upload media when in full-screen mode.
* Remote publishing via XML-RPC and APP is now secure (off) by default, but you can turn it on easily through the options screen. (Don’t think I’m going to use this feature but who knows).
* Full SSL support in the core, and the ability to force SSL for security.
* You can now have many thousands of pages or categories with no interface issues.
* Ability to move your wp-config file and wp-content directories to a custom location, for “clean” SVN checkouts.
* Select a range of checkboxes with “shift-click.”
* You can toggle between the Flash uploader (when uploading images or any media objects) and the classic one.
* A number of proactive security enhancements, including cookies and database interactions.
* Stronger better faster versions of TinyMCE, jQuery, and jQuery UI (which were the primary sources of errors in the Beta 3 I’ve tested)
* Version 2.6 fixes approximately 194 bugs.

In addition to this, I like the “Insert Gallery” function of WordPress 2.6 I like to post pictures with posts so this is an added goody.
