I love it when readers email pictures of projects they’ve made, before and afters and wonderful home tours! Michele visits the wonderful town of Cape May, NJ each summer and she recently shared a few pics with me from a recent trip. Oh, how I’d love to see this town in person and go inside these cute shops! My bucket list gets longer and longer.
Beautiful gardens and charming cottages!
Have you ever been to Cape May? The homes Michele shared remind me so much of those you see in small towns here in the south or around the squares of the larger cities in the south. Wouldn’t it be fun to host a party in this house and throw open those wonderful doors just off the front porch of this beautiful Victorian. Love the flags tucked in among the flowers. Are those hydrangeas? I didn’t know they would grow so far north, but I think those are hydrangeas. Beautiful!
This upcoming week I’ll share some pics from the Haven Conference. I am still recovering! It was an amazing two days and sooo much fun. I think even those of us who have been blogging for a while came away with some great information to help improve our blogs. I have pages and pages of notes…will take me a while to sort through them all.
Thumbnails and Could Use Your Help:
You may remember, right after BNOTP moved from Blogger to WordPress 2-3 weeks ago, the thumbnail pics for many posts went missing. When you hit the words “More posts from BNOTP” at the bottom of the BNOTP home page, you found excerpts of past posts, but they were without their thumbnails. Not very appealing or helpful if you’re cruising the archives.
I spent a few hours each day (over the last few weeks) replacing all those. I was almost finished (had about 6 months of posts to check) when WordPress issued an update that turned out to be NOT compatible with the thumbnail plug-in. About half my thumbnails (maybe more) vanished again. Two steps forward, 5 steps back. I tell ya folks, WordPress is not for the faint of heart.
A thread was started by those who use the plugin and eventually the “techy” guys in the thread found a solution. After applying the “fix” I was left with around 175 posts still lacking their thumbnails. I’ve been working on those over this past week and I think I have them all replaced. Please do me a favor, though. If you are clicking back through the pages/posts and come across a post still missing its thumbnail picture (or missing a picture in the post itself) I would appreciate it so much if you would let me know. Hopefully the next WP update won’t wipe them all off again. I live in fear of WP updates now! Seriously!
If you were having some trouble getting the Mouseover Tutorial I posted recently to work, I’ve added some additional visuals and changed the “example code” to one that may be a bit easier to use. You can check that out here: Create a Mouse-over Photo of Your Before and After Project
See you tomorrow morning for Metamorphosis Monday! Have a wonderful weekend!
