You’ll find that subscriptions for tracking posts/replies as well as view counts have all been reset.
I’ve been maintaining this blog since 2005 and have made only small changes to it now and then. My goal was not to get mired in all things WordPress but rather to have my own little forum of expression.
I’ve been having more and more issues lately that my Web Host has been chronically blaming on “old and inefficient scripts”. It probably doesn’t help that my hosting plan has me sharing a virtual machine with likely hundreds if not thousands of other low-use websites.
So rather than troubleshoot 14 years worth of updates and tweaking since I *know* I’ve made some coding changes along the way that may or may not have been impactful to the efficiency of the blog functions, I elected to just lay down a fresh install of WordPress and leave the customizing to plugins.
I’m still seeing some “500” errors that miraculously go away if you refresh so I now need to collect stats and get my web host on the ball.
On the plus side I can now change my theme pretty easily to make it look a bit more modern/attractive.
Thanks for visiting!
