A few changes at B&P

I’ve made some changes to B&P recently.  I added a Previously on B&P section in the sidebar that displays the last ten posts.

I’ve also updated the About B&P page and the BABBQ page as well.  I also fixed the comments problem on the pages that we experienced in the last incarnation of B&P. At least I think it’s fixed.

I also removed the donation Recognition Wall that never did work right.  I also installed a plugin which allows readers to edit their comments after they posted them.

Maffu is still working on getting all the old posts back.  Cross your fingers.

Buy Jonco a beer

I’ve activated a plugin to allow B&P readers to make a donation in support of Bits & Pieces (in the right-hand sidebar).  This plugin is a little different than the one I used before.  It’s a lot easier to set up, that’s for sure.  It includes a recognition wall that is built into the plugin.  You can have your name and comment added to the recognition wall or not. That’s your choice.

It also has a suggested amount that is defaulted at $10.  I tried to zero out the default amount but it won’t let me.  You can put whatever amount you want in the box…. $3, $5 $10, $20, $100….. (I wonder how high it will go?)

Anyway, a donation is certainly not required but if you feel so inclined (and some have requested this) I really appreciate the support.

J-Walking in St. Louis

Who’s had more beers?

It looks like J-Walk has, but I don’t think he drove off the road when leaving Ken’s house, but let’s not talk about that.

The Midwest Mini Blog Summit took place in St. Louis when I met up with John Walkenbach, mastermind behind J-Walk & Associates, the J-Walk Blog and the Spreadsheet Page, not to mention author of countless Excel books, a few of which I own.  We shared trade secrets and the world’s best mustard and a beer or two or ten.

More pictures after the break….

B&P Update…

Well…. I think we’re making progress.  We have the basic site back up without the infected parts.  We don’t have any past content yet, but we’re working on that.  I have added the header logos so it’ll start looking a little more normal.  I’ll have to add all the plugins and blogroll and categories too.

Stay tuned…….

Also, since this is technically a new install, I’ll have to approve your comments the first time.  After that they should go up instantly.
