Things have shuddered to an uneasy halt: it can take up to 72 hours for domain redirection to propagate and send folks to the new domain. Our sister made her first blog visit today to the old domain and landed on the “parked” page displayed there. It took over a month for her to actually look for our blog and she found a page of ads. It’s our fault: we had not told her when we were moving.
The Time is Come is up and running at http://rrretired.com. We’ve begun fine-tuning settings, but the whole thing is still unstable. For example, sometimes the dashboard ignores the edit-post command and won’t accept keystrokes in the text editor. Positioning an image in the text editor is weird now, although Zemanta images work o.k. We have a list going and will call support when it’s long enough.
The guided transfer package gives us two weeks of paid support. We cleared the calendar for the entire two weeks. It’s going to be pretty intense, what with learning enough CSS and XHTML to know what the code means, and with modifying the features that need changing. Our experienced blogger-friend reassured that our background will suffice to tackle WordPress outside the .com safety zone. Nonetheless, we have heard that Fools rush in where Angels fear to tread…
Please come visit the new location, http://rrretired.com, to watch site stability unfold!
