Kinda-sorta, anyway. www.garyshowalter.com is more or less complete after a frantic few days of live chats and phone calls to the support teams at www.register.com. The last little hurdle to overcome (other than the still-ugly color combination) on the web site has been conquered.
For some truly bizarre reason, the ‘blog’ wound up on my home page rather than on the ‘weblog’ (so styled by register.com) and I had no idea how to move it or delete it or even hide it. I was so unsure of why it was there rather than on the blog page that I used their blog post utility to post a short test. Sure enough it was posted to the middle of my home page.
A quick call to tech support had the tech lady stumped for a few minutes but she did come back with a solution that worked and the blog was in fact automatically moved by yours truly to the actual blog page in a matter of a few seconds (hint- it’s in the site layout options, but you’ll never find it on your own).
So, it’s more or less done and I’m even going to post this entry to the web site blog page to prove it.
I’ll spend part of tomorrow fiddling around with the colors again to see if I can come up with something I can live with. Everything is is more or less the way it will remain for the nonce (no, I have no idea what a nonce is or how long it lasts).
Have a great weekend.
