Blog maintenance

August 30th, 2012 § 2 comments § permalink

Last week, I got a slew of spam registrations from one particular domain. No harm done; the users were deleted (along with several others that have sneaked in over the last year), but I did install a new Captcha to the registration page to discourage bot registrations to the site.

In the process, I updated all my plugins and broke the slideshow I was using for my front page. If you’ve been to the site in the last week or so, you may have noticed. As this was the first week of school, I haven’t had a chance to fix the slideshow yet, but I will find a new plugin that will work. In the meantime, enjoy the Johnson quote. There is no quote that better encapsulates my feelings about my own writing, especially my fanwork, and I carry it proudly on the cover of my nook and for the meantime, use it as my sole representation on this website.

Look for a new plugin (and maybe new quotes and photos? I might go crazy!) some time next week.

Here goes nothing.

I’ve been doing a lot of alterations to the backend of this site; upgrading the CMS and the theme, and making some small tweaks to some of the ways pages load. One casualty of the CMS upgrade was my notifying software, which apparently hasn’t been rewritten to work with the latest CMS version. (Which I noticed when I put up a new chapter of “One Day the Sun Will Rise,” so if you’re interested in that, you may wish to mosey on over there. 🙂 )

I’ve installed new subscription software which should provide pretty much the same functionality as the old–the ability to subscribe to notices instead of or in addition to becoming a “member” of the site. (I don’t really use the member feature at the moment, although I may in the future and will let you know.) At the moment, I pulled everyone who was on the old notification list onto the new one, but if you’d like to change your settings or unsubscribe, simply click on the  “Get Update Alerts” link.

And thank you, as always, for reading.

(who is crossing her fingers that notifications go out for this post)


New Signup Page

I’ve added a new feature to my site–the “Get Update Alerts” page. I wanted something very robust, so that everyone could decide exactly how much or how little or on which topics they wanted to hear from me. Thankfully, I found just the solution. All of you who are already members of the site have been added automatically to the alerts, but please feel free to adjust your settings or to unsubscribe completely if you wish. If you click on the link in any update e-mail you receive, you’ll be able to opt-in to notifications by topic. Only want to hear about “Da Capo?” Only want teasers? Just go for those categories.

I hope this enhances your experience of my new site. Thank you for visiting!
