Hi, good Fiesta Friday friends! Anyone has a special plan for the weekend? I do! Working on the blog, that’s my special plan. I hope it’ll rain so I won’t feel tempted to go outside and forget about the plan. Also, it’s been too hot over here for fall. Some rain might cool things a little.
This blog has been neglected for too long. No new recipes, no new photos featured on the home page, etc. Behind the scenes, a few technical issues are begging for some serious attention and some old plugins are in need of an update or replacement.
So, to get started on the plan, I’d like to ask you a few questions. Who among you are using Social Warfare plugin? If you are, you probably saw these messages on your dashboard:
As of June 30th, 2018, StumbleUpon will no longer exist as a sharing platform. Instead, they are moving in with Mix. While this is exciting for Mix, share counts will not be transferred, and Mix is not providing a share button or API. – Warfare Plugins Team
For those using New Share Counts, please take note: New Share Counts is no longer in service. You may update your Social Warfare settings to use the alternative Open Share Count to continue getting your tweet counts. To view your Tweet Count settings, go to Social Warfare > Social Identity > Tweet Count Registration. We are also working on an alternative option and updates to the code to prevent any possible disruptions in your service. – Warfare Plugins Team
I’m guessing they’ve been there since June/July (?) but because I’m blind I didn’t see them earlier. I really do need to start wearing my glasses!
Anyway, I just saw them, and I have absolutely no idea what they mean! Can someone please enlighten me?
Also, while we’re at it, I’d like to ask if you can recommend a recipe index plugin. A simple, easy to understand plugin if possible. I actually don’t use an index plugin at all and have been indexing my recipes manually. I know!! It totally shows how unprofessional it all looks.
So if you can help me, I’d be very much obliged. Thank you and stay cool, literally and figuratively.
Now, take a look at these yummies
“You guys, Kat is expecting a baby!! Go find out if it’s going to be a girl or boy by visiting her post. She had to cut into that cake to reveal and what a cool-looking cake that is. Absolutely gorgeous!” — Angie
“[This] looked like a hearty meal to warm up these cool Autumn nights. Probably a good meal for sports fans! The addition of mustard and cabbage to the ingredients was a new twist and the ease of making the recipe was very appealing.” — Catherine
“Timely information for Fall and Halloween. Very nice photos too.” — Becky
“Uh…what?! HAT dogs?! Sorting hats?! Harry Potter?! Of course! How clever! Now if only I can use a wand to teleport these through the monitor. Expecto hat dogs! No? Wingardium hat dogs! Still nothing! Guess I’ll have to make them.” — Angie
