As those of us in the United States prepare to celebrate our country’s birthday, I thought I’d decorate appropriately. Enjoy!
I have (finally) updated the “About” page for the site. The current page focuses on my professional biography. Please check it out and tell me what you think!
Just a quick note that I have upgraded the site to version 2.9.1 of WordPress. Please leave a comment if you experience any issues with the site.
Waaaay back when I was using the free WordPress.com blog service, I also put the iPhone WordPress app to good use. The app allowed me to write and submit my posts on my iPhone, freeing me to blog whenever the heck I felt like it. Of course, I didn’t post a lot then, so the app ended up in the iPhone version of the discount rack, hidden away in the dark recesses of my phone.
Since then, as you can see, I’ve consolidated my blogs and moved them to their current location. I then discovered that WordPress had updated their iPhone app to version 2.0. I immediately downloaded it, only to discover I couldn’t use it. A strange 500 internal server error would pop up every time I connected to the blog with my iPhone.
I let the issue slide for some time. Working two jobs while searching for a new job will do that. Now, though, I have the chance to figure out what the exact issue was.
It turns out to be a simple fix – On the root of my website’s file structure, there is supposed to be a file named .HTACCESS. On my site, there was none. I created the dile on my computer and, before uploading it to my website, added this line of code:
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
Once I pushed this file up, I was able to use the iPhone app without any problems!
Thanks go out to Jeremy Snyder of snydersoft.com for publishing this fix.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have updated my blog to the latest version of WordPress. It looks like everything works and, if you’re reading this, everything actually DOES work.
Just to let you know, I’ve upgraded WordPress, the software this site runs, to 2.8.6. Please comment or email me at kevingamin at gmail dot com if you have any issues.
