Doing something …


Avada is Too Much.

Trying something on my other Other Dev site.

But first I gotta figure out which Fedi Plugin actually worked and I fear that it took a hack to get a dependency working and That I fear I’ve forgotton howw to do.

Ah, my web site.

My vanity domain, elfLand(.me), is really for EMail, and so I tend to break my WebSite frequently and often.

65,535 TCP ports, and just as many UDP Ports, I really don’t care all that much about HTTP(s) despite the fact The Web puts food on my table; I find it unamusing. It’s expected I have some sort of Visual Presence.

[The Roofer’s roof leaks, the cobbler’s children have no shoes.] So here we are.

The Original plan was to use Drupal 7 (because Drupal 8 wasn’t done baking and the modules weren’t where they needed to be to do the things I wanted to do). So, I taught myself Drupal 7 and BootStrap 3.x (and they all come with a very high learning curve, Drupal is well known for the highest curve of CMS Land). This took more than a year. Well, about 6/4 of the way through this, Drupal 8 got itself together and so I went and learned that, but there’s a catch; Soon enough the Bootstrap module is going to flip to BootStrap 4 (somewhat late to the game, even Twitter updated to BootStrap 4 over Christmas 2019, buggers changing the UI).

I’ve got other things to do that do not include chasing Major Code Revisions. So, in this case the path of least resistance is to simply fall back to WordPress. Though I prefer Drupal Module Code to WordPress Plugin Code (for a wide variety of reasons), this is cheap on my time, easy to use, and gets my site back up and running rapidly.

So, back to WordPress. This amuses a number of people greatly.

Now, I have some things to Wax Silly about which is the whole point of the exercise.
