I Am Back

After spending everyday since last Tuesday the 12th, working to rebuild the site, I finally got a new one up and running. It's very similar to the old one but it's a new wordpress theme and I've made a lot of updates on the broken old links to pages that aren't used anymore.

The login is different and easier to sign up now for new people. However, I still have some issues, which are that the images aren't all showing up for old posts and for the profile images (avatars) for the members. Each member will have recreate their account too, if they didn't join prior to March 20th, 2020 as from that date back to the beginning first post on September 21st, 2009 is all the data I had saved.

Meaning if any user joined in that time period their account should still be in the database, but they might have to reset their password... I'm not sure there? Most everyone will need to upload a new profile picture as again, they seem lost or damaged. It's way easier now to do everything with your profile as I've changed that signin and/or join process completely.

As for all the posts from March 20th, 2020 up until today I have them all stored in Notepad for the text and my hard drives for the images. It's going to take 6-12 months of slowly putting those old posts back up to get everything back, as I had 3519 posts and the backup copy from 2009-2020 only has 2204 posts. That's a lot of posts to put back up over time.

The good news is that most aren't important really as the market is ever changing. They are more just for me and website traffic to them, that's all. I did put up about 10 or so of the most recent. I will add to that over time so that anyone can go back and reference some old post if needed. If anyone has trouble with the new site and logging back in or re-creating their site again just email me: Red (at) RedDragonLeo (dot) com

One more thing to note... the certificate for the HTTPS needs updated, so some browser will put a warning about.  I should have it fixed in a day or so as well.

Have a blessed day.
