Was having issues with Hostmonster, first my sitemap program would never run to completion, talked to them 3 times about it and each time they said they fixed it and it still did not work. Very pleased it runs here on Bluehost in minutes where it ran over an hour on Hostmonster and never finished. .
Biggest reason I moved to Bluehost was this blog was hacked some how and a bunch of malware was installed on the site. Hostmonster took my site down (you may have seen “this site is suspended” if you are a regular visitor to my weather page or any other page) and wanted me to pay them $70 a month to fix it. I told them at the beginning of the chat that I would move my hosting some where else. They were not cooperative and even after I deleted the malware from the site they would not put it back up. They seem to think they could force me to pay them the $70 a month for the service when my hosting was like $18 a month.. After chatting with them for over 2 hours I told them enough and I was moving. My hosting was up for renewal any way.
I am happy with Bluehost https://www.bluehost.com/ they have been very responsive to fix issues and as of this afternoon the last item on my major items was to get my wordpress blog back up and as you can see it is. I searched for security plugins and installed a firewall so hopefully It won’t get hacked again. Also removed all inactive themes and plugins, everything was uptodate before I got hacked so that was not the issue. WordPress had updated like two weeks before it was hacked. But the latest Wordpess version now says the previous version had vulnerabilities .
Moving has meant some major changes. I did not put the LDS Singles pages backup, Facebook has pretty much killed email lists and there had been no post on it other than the monthly FAC sent automatically for 2 years and I have not been single for 4 or 5 years so it was time to go.
I have gotten redirection going so my urls all changed from https://scottsworld.info/weather/ to https://weather.scottsworld.info and so on for a short time. It is fixed now
Chased a lot of broken links where my stupid editor had not successfully global changed something or other issues. My sitemap program shows broken internal links. https://www.xml-sitemaps.com . I do not like WeBuilder my html/css editor, but the previous software was not supported any more. I tried Dreamweaver but Adobe has this scam where they don’t sell you stuff any more. Instead they want to charge you a $30 a month usage fee each for Dreamweaver or Photoshop and their other software. It crashed while I was testing it and lost over an hours work so it got uninstalled. Right now I am testing a freeware open source editor called Atom. https://atom.io/
I updated TNG The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding v. 12.2 and the gedcoms into the database recently and on the move some how lost the settings for the main page, so I tested all the themes and picked the one out of 3 of the 18 available themes. I picked a photo for the page which turned out to be HUGE and was running of the page so I need some software to reduce it. I first tried the trial version of Photo shop as I into the really only needed it once. It took forever to download and install and was still installing hours later. In the mean time I downloaded a free program, reduced the image by 50% and uploaded while Photoshop was still trying to install so I killed it and uninstalled Adobe cloud again. I would not recommend Adobe software to any one.
So the photo on the page https://genealogy.scottsworld.info/index.php is my Parents and grandparents when my parents got married in 1963. Sad to say everyone in the Photo has passed on. My father died this summer which leaves me as the oldest remaining Scheibe in that branch of our family tree. I was 55 last spring. My mother died in 2015 from complications of alzheimers, which runs in her family, her mother and all her older siblings died of it leaving only the two youngest still alive. My father lost his only sibling, his sister to breast cancer in 2008 and both his parents from old age later that year, he has not been the same since and just gave up caring for himself.
Anyway this post was about the website and I am wondering.. Will post more later.
