I created Travel And Photo Today as a site to explore and enjoy the worlds of travel and photography.  So this articlei s a bit for this site. It doesn’t really have anything to do with Travel or Photography.  And that’s what this site is supposed to be about.  So – what’s up?

This article is sort of an update – a status report on some recent issues with the site. Travel and Photo Today is currently going through a bit of a  “Challenge”. I produce this site using WordPress software.  The site is hosted on “GoDaddy”. And, unfortunately, in the past several days something has happened.  I’m not sure if the problem lies in the software or the hosting site.  But what I do know is that I can write articles as long as they just include text.  But if I try to insert “media” into the article (for me that is “images” / “photos”) well the site goes all weird.  Images aren’t inserted.  And if that wasn’t bad enough – after an attempt is made to insert a photo the entire article goes all wonky. It can’t be saved properly or viewed properly.  Very frustrating here on the production end of things to say the least.

Now to some degree I like to think of myself as knowing a bit about computers, etc.  But I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the most techo-savy guy.   And this problem has really got me stumped.  I’ve spend untold hours trying to trouble shoot and solve this issue.  I won’t bore you with what I have done and tried.  But trust me – I’ve tried a lot!

So far, the best news is that I have found a few ways to “work around” the issues. But the work around is a very convoluted process which ends up taking about five times as long to produce an article as usual.  So I’m still trying to get this issue fixed.

I’m going to do my best to continue publishing articles while I work on a solution to the underlying issues.  But I thought I would give you a “heads up” and let you know that there are some “issues” with production at the present time.  So if you run into problems accessing this site, if the load times are slow, or if articles aren’t looking quite the same or if   anything else odd happens – well, I hope you hang in there and check back later.  I am determined to get this thing fixed ASAP

You may have noticed that this article has no photos.  Now you know why.

Web Publication ………. Enjoy the Adventure?
