After updating to the latest version of WordPress, I loaded my site to find that the photo slider on the home page is no longer loading, and a quick web search shows that I’m not the only one with this problem. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to just turn the slider off without engaging some potentially website-mangling PHP editing. I have checked the other features of the site and photos, video and music still play back. At least this little hiccup gives me an excuse to start looking at a revamp.
In other news, I’ve been seriously neglecting the site as well as my other outlets (YouTube, LinkedIn, Stage 32) and I plan to immediately start rectifying that. Hopefully starting with this post I’ll be updating more regularly. I will also be transitioning more of my existing work to YouTube which will enable those with slower connections to view the videos more easily, and adding a couple of other videos I’ve done with Joseph Lopez (now Joey PhD) in the past.
