It appears that IFTTT once again created more than one post when posting my daily fitness summary to my website. I see an occasional duplicate post but this time it posted the same post four times. (Then those posts aggregated to my social media sites and spammed my friends and followers.) Not sure why this happens. Not sure how to fix it. I hate to shut that applet off but I may have to.
I’m working on a web project and I’m going to use BuddyPress since it is a network site. Whenever I use BuddyPress I’m always perplexed why there are not any good free themes available for download. I decided to go with the Customizr theme that is for WordPress/BuddyPress for now and see how that goes. Still, if BuddyPress is as widely used as they state it is you would think there would be more free theme options.
It appears that IFTTT, the service I use to post my fitness summary and other content to this site is creating duplicate posts when doing so. This is definitely not good because I don’t think it is fixable. I would like to apologize for spamming the interwebbies.
Just a note to folks that follow my Facebook Page that the way the content from this site is getting aggregated to that page is not displaying exactly the way I would like. Please be standby for changes coming soon……
In previous versions of this website, I was able to share my location when I chose to do so. However, with the changes in the way Google Maps works it broke and I took that functionality down. (I was also overly paranoid about what I was posting online at the time.) Now I am able to do so once again but I am not able to show my location on a map any longer. That functionality may return at some point. I just don’t have the motivation to work the details out.
So after a couple of hours of fumbling around with WordPress this morning, it’s time to get my day started and do so actual real life stuff. What did I actually accomplish though while fumbling around —
- Chose to use the default WordPress 2016 theme. It’s not pretty. It’s not shiny. What it does though is give you the reader of this website the information I want to give you clearly in black and white plain text and it looks good in both mobile or desktop formats.
- Connected bit.ly to this WordPress install and also set up bit.ly to use a custom domain. Now when WordPress generates a short link it will be from my domain j1m.pw.
- Connected this WordPress install to my Twitter account. When I post something here a link will be sent to Twitter. I used the WordPress Plugin WP to Twitter to achieve this. It also utilizes my custom domain j1m.pw that I connected to bit.ly.
Not sure what real life has in store for me today. Today is a day off from my real life job so anything is possible.
