Kingdom of Leo v 5.1

OMG! Let me fill you in on what has been happening in the Kingdom of Leo…

A little history…I have been blogging on Kingdom of Leo since 2004. Everything was fine until one day, my blog got hacked and I had one of those red-page malware warnings on my website. I backed up my blog and set to starting over, figuring I could import the old blog files. Guess what? That didn’t work, so at that time, I love approximately ten years of blogging.

More recently, I had a problem on September 20 of this year where I had to start over again. I was running WordPress with Twenty Sixteen theme and Wordfence plug-in and still encountered a problem: my blog would not display, but I could see everything in my WordPress admin panel.

Completely disgusted by GoDaddy (my website hosting provider) and WordPress (blog), I set to designing my own blog. That took one day. Because I only had a months worth of posts, I decided to recreate them. That also took about one day. However, in the midst of recreating posts, I decided to test and discovered that my index in one folder was disappearing off the remote root directory after upload. After several calls to GoDaddy – who were not helpful at all because while they provide access to download WordPress, they offer no support for the program.

I was finally able to detect the problem: I had copyrighted images on my file and GoDaddy servers were kicking it back. I rectified my problem by taking a screenshot of the image and posting that instead. I will deal with copyright infringement when it rears it’s ugly head.

So now that I don’t think it was WordPress, I am ready to try it one more time. Easier said than done. I cannot apply Twenty Sixteen theme because the version (4.3.1) of WordPress does not support it. How the fuck did I have it on my blog before!

So now I am using Twenty Fifteen for ease and convenience. My biggest problem now is that I want to reconstruct my posts, but have two afghans I need to finish before xmas. Aiyaaa!

What The Fuck?

WordPress

OMG! This morning I went to blog about my cancer and my potential car purchase and discovered that my posts were not displaying on my WordPress blog…just the header. It hasn’t even been a month, I added Wordfence plug-in for protection and still my blog got hacked or something…because GoDaddy sure as hell has not definitive answers. And because WordPress is open source code, it is liable to attacks. I can’t understand how it is rated number one among blog applications. Since I started blogging, I have had to start my blog over at least five or six time.

I have had it…I will simply make my own blog. While it may be simple, it will provided the much needed outlet for me. While I would love the notoriety that I hoped one day would come, it hasn’t, I’m getting old, and I am tired of waiting.

I did like WordPress, but the consistent hacking of my personal website is just intolerable. I’m a nobody – some people have way too much time on their hands.

In The End…

So after creating my own blog template yesterday, I tested it and found some issues. Not in the mood to deal with any more issues, I decided to download WordPress once again. However, this time I also downloaded the Wordfence plug-in, hoping that it would provide some form of protection.

Still I am not 100% pleased with the template I chose – Twenty Fifteen – and may have to change to one that allows for more color customization. While I am a big fan of black and white, when it comes to visuals I prefer color…and lot’s of it!

I better make a decision today before I have way too many posts that need alteration.
