I’ve had my programmer hat on for the last several days, eyeball deep in magazine-style themes for WordPress. I had installed WordPress locally here on my laptop because I wanted to develop a magazine-style theme for my coaching website/blog. I got the structure of it done late, late last night and was SO proud of it…it is just what I’ve wanted for my site for a long time!
This morning I decided to install it in another directory on my site so I could play with some of the functions that need access to the Internet and…
I KILLED MY SITE WITH ONE WRONG CLICK!
It never ceases to amaze me how, after more than 20 years of programming, I can still do dumb, dumb shit like that!
Fortunately, I’ve done enough stupid shit like that over the years that I had backups of backups, so I got to spend today putting my site back online. Yee-haw – not quite what I thought I’d be doing. But since I had obliterated it anyway, I decided to load up the new site instead of restoring the old one, and I have to say it’s just lovely. If you wanna take a peek, here is the new look and here is a page from the old style.
So, my beloved Internets, here’s the lesson for today: ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR STUFF! NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING!!!
You must trust me on this.
