4.3 update

I updated to WP 4.3 yesterday and found that one of my plugins ceased working, it also stopped the website from loading, both the blog and admin pages.
So I decided that I would raise a ticket to let the developer know there was an issue with the plugin:
https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cannot-redeclare-get_language_attributes?replies=2#post-7315181

I’m very happy that the problem has been fixed, but can’t say that I was ecstatic with the developers comment, seeing as my feedback was the first one posted after I’d checked to ensure there wasn’t one already raised. (The post ID’s give it away).

Perhaps I’m just in a grumpy mood today, as I often have to deal with many cases of people not reading things correctly, getting the wrong end of the stick or just ignoring the facts in-front of them. Normally these are my customers so it’s hard to rant at their complete lack of understanding or attention to detail, and you just have to point out their mistake.

I felt a little dissuaded from raising feedback in the future.

Same site, New host

So after 9 years with Evohosting the time came to seek out a new company to handle my relatively low space and bandwidth requirements, with 5 Domains and really wanting a UK based host, it was a rather trickier task than I first thought.
The biggest problem I was encountering was that most of the hosting packages only allow for 1 or 2 domains, to allow more usually bumped the price higher than I was already paying.

vidahostAfter a solid month hunting for a suitable host it was my fellow clan leader MK who put me onto the hosting company Vidahost. After some analysis of the options and pondering over cups of tea, I took the plunge and started the process of migrating my Welshtroll domain across. Moving to a Cloud based hosting and leaving the comfort of my shared hosting CPanel, was a little nerve-wracking but the Vidahost website is well detailed and doesn’t disappoint when you are looking for information.

Nice touches

One of the services that they offer is free migration of content from your previous host, providing you with a temporary link so that you can check it’s as you expect. In this climate of paying for every single addon, it was nice to see that it was a free service. Additionally they have a Concierge service for new customers which is aimed at ensuring they can find everything they need and if they have any questions.

So there you have it, I’ve currently transferred 3 of my 5 Domains over the next will be in a few weeks when I’ve resolved an email issue on my existing host.

That’s about it for now, but hopefully now i have settled into my new role at work a little more I’ll get more time to blog.

PS oh i forgot to say if you fancied trying out Vidahost you can get 10% off the cost of hosting if you use the code “WelshtrollSentMe” 🙂

Hats off to me

Aside from the usual Nike shoe spam I can tell a new Title has launched due to the Gold sellers ramping up their game. I even had one for Destiny.

hatsoff
