As previously descibed i was a happy user of the pixelpost photoblogging software but spam and other security issues made that impossible somewhere in 2014.
As promised, my photos are back (menu on the left) but I have not been able (yet) to retrieve the comments and titles…
Got rid of my old buggy wordpress theme, to be further customised….
I knew it was going to happen … swamped by spam and in spite of akismet it all became too much. One.com, my provider, temporarily disabled my account and i do not blame them!
I backed up my pixelpost database, including the comments on my photo’s. Everything should reappear some day in the future. For now there is no time for “anything but work”, so be patient.
pixelpost, 1.7.3. the last release was born back in 2009. In total i used pixelpost for nearly 10 years. Thanks to all those people who made it possible, too bad its no longer maintained…
If anybody can reccommend a wordpress theme suited for photography please feel free to leave a comment. I want something simple and minimalist.
I am planning a major overhaul of this blog
…. things may not function for an extended period of time
A problem with the database forced me, after tree years of inactivity, to do some maintenance. Two conclusions are inevitable: pixelpost and wordpress are fabulous, an i am terribly lazy!
Something like this showed up instead of a photo:
….. is marked as crashed and should be repaired
a quick search learned me the solution is rather easy: here it is
I updated to the latest pixelpost and wordpress version without a glitch, only a number of plugins need some work.
A word of thanks to the makers of this software and its plug-ins is in order!
