Home Sweet Home; Unpacking Technical Difficulties

A Message from Your Author

Hey everyone!

Happy Birthday Washington! What a great way to start blogging! Today is President’s Day! Oh, by the way, Happy belated Valentine’s Day! All my guests or followers must have seen the temporary banner previously positioned above the website that already mentioned this message. I would like to make this the official message for the romantic day of celebration. If you are single, I hope you made the best of it by watching movies and eating ice cream.

Now, transitioning into business.

Welcome to the new home of PrinzeCharming.com! Yes! We have moved from WordPress.com to WordPress.org! Was the move easy? Well, nobody enjoys packing their belongings into a truck to unpack and reorganize again! Although the move was fairly easy, PrinzeCharming has less than 70 blog posts in three months. So, editing the pictures and fixing all the broken ones was the only hassle. I realized that originality is a beautiful thing. The very few reblogs were lost in the transition, so I edited those posts as well. I am very fortunate that I did not reblog more than ten posts. If you received a pingback, just delete it. I believe I fixed enough. If you notice anything different, just let me know. I know there are a few minor issues still left around here, including the award posts. In addition, the Internet connection was very weak in the office. It was fixed the other day. I am very pleased with the results of PrinzeCharming.com, and I hope we all can have a successful year ahead.

You will notice a few new features located throughout the blog. Let me give you some insight on the latest and the greatest.

The Top Latest Changes

  1. Layout / WordPress Theme

  2. PunchTab

  3. Disqus

  4. Subscribers

Layout and Theme

First, the layout and WordPress theme is the greatest change to notice for the top latest changes. The theme compliments the feel of PrinzeCharming. The layout is very fun to play with as well! Give it a try! Stretch out the page and watch everything shift! The articles and bottom half of the page will shift around. If you have a small monitor, you will see the default layout of the articles in rows. If you have a larger monitor, there will be one long list of articles going across.

Punch Tab

Secondly, PunchTab is a rewarding online program down below the bottom of PrinzeCharming.com. When you first notice this new feature, it will appear to look like this:

punch

When you instantly connect with Facebook, you will have access to this:

Ok, so “Rewards” cannot be clicked. Sorry. The 900 points (pts) must be earned, but that is not linked either. The share buttons and the two buttons next to the points (pts) are waiting for your clicks.

The group of people will bring you to the Leaderboard. The Leaderboard will show you the last thirty days of activity on PrinzeCharming.com. The other followers connected to Facebook will be displayed here as well. When someone contributes to sharing or commenting on PrinzeCharming.com, they will earn points (pts). Go ahead and earn your first 100 free points now!

 

100 Free Points 

Anyone can receive 100 free points just for connecting with Facebook! The rest is all up to your contributions!

Catalog

When you click on Catalog, you will see this menu:

Rewards

The more points you earn, the better prizes you can redeem! Why settle for a $5 Target.com eGift Card when you can save enough points for $25 Restaurant eGift Card?

I could also host a Giveaway event! I can make this happen via PunchTab.

The Giveaway feature looks like this:

Good luck!

Disqus

If you noticed, there is a new commenting feature used throughout the site.  If you look around, you will notice how Disqus is effectively used in every article. This is a very popular commenting platform! I was very pleased to see how organized the system was by viewing every article, and how it functions within the community here. I hope you enjoy it too!

 Subscribers

Last, but certainly not least, I have 4,071 followers from WordPress.com whom might not receive a notification for this recent blog post. Can you let me know, please? If not, you must subscribe down below to the new blog. If you do, great! I just hope everything works out just fine. If nothing is sent through your inbox, renew your subscription here!

Although I am shy one day for seven days, I will throw out a Genesis idea around.

“And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”

Now, I shall rest. Take care everyone! I hope you can all enjoy the latest! Be sure to check out my navigation pages!

 

Sincerely,

Tony T

  1. Yikes…congrats…I think? I do look forward to all the kinks getting worked out — just please leave some kink😉 … right now everything on my screen for your opage is shoved waaaay over tot he far left…?

      Haha, yikes? What now? Oh, you are asking for it, young lady!😉 Yeah, I may just add something to the right … I am not sure yet. Other than that, it all depends on your screen. If you have a large monitor, everything scatters across in a nice straight line. If your browser isn’t stretched out enough, it will all shift to the side. I can add more articles to the page too if I wanted! haha

        Mmmm, you’re always making me smile in the most passionate way possible.;)

      Yes, I am technically still on WordPress.com, but all my traffic is going into WordPress.org. Yeah, it’s confusing, but … haha long story!
