A few new things
Hello once again everyone. I know things have been slow and quiet on the porch and my humble apologies for that. I won’t bother to bore you with any explanation as to why since I pretty much have the same excuse as the last time this happened. Instead I will focus on a few new things that you may or may not have noticed. So lets start with the obvious, shall we?
Yup God’s Porch is now a version 3. I’ve had this design sitting down for about 2 months waiting to see the light of day. The transition is not 100% complete as there are somethings that I would like to change and also some things I might try to add in (not sure yet).
As you might have noticed it’s a lot simpler than the last and a couple things have been done away with, most notably the “Around the Web with God” and “Recommended” sections. They both seemed like a good idea in the last design, however I quickly realized that I couldn’t keep them updated. Maybe they might make a return in the future, but, for now I’ll let them take an extended break.
The “recent posts” list has been left out for now. I’m trying to find a way to work it into the design, so we’ll see how that works out. For now though you will see the last 3 posts on the front page and anything else beyond that date can be found in the “Archives”.
I wanted to try and keep the site as simple and clean as I could, while making it appealing. I think I managed to do it, but I’d love to know what you think. By the way if you notice anything out of place, broken or well…just plain wrong, please let me know.
TXP 4.0.4 was recently released and I just had to upgrade right away. It’s certainly a welcome upgrade and I can definitely agree with Natalie’s thoughts on some of the new features.
While the upgrade went smoothly, my comment form is giving a little trouble. It will post your comment though it gives a “Server Not Found” error and doubles up the URL when you hit submit. Don’t let that stop you from commenting though as your comment will still go through. I am currently trying to get that back up and running with the help of the wonderful TXP community and will post again when I get it all sorted out.
Other than that, its all good.
Well right now I’m not quite sure. Exams are coming up so I might still be a bit quiet but we will see how things go. I kindly ask for your prayers that I will be able to keep focused and do well this semester and the next.
So that’s pretty much it for now. I will leave you with a verse, but until next time, peace and God bless.
It is the Lord your God you must follow and Him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey Him; serve Him and hold fast to Him. — Deuteronomy 13:4
