The follwing is not neccesarily porn related, just some followup on some blog issues of mine that got resolved recently.
For those of you who were unaware, two months ago the domain that I had used to host my original SmackDog Chronicles blog had been hacked into, thus causing the original webhost to pull my domain without warning.
I was able to find a different domain and start fresh, but in the transfer all of my posts from my original blog location were nuked...and that included some material that I had been saving, such as the reprint of Sheldon Ranz's classic 1989 interview with Nina Hartley, and some exchanges on the madness of Shelley Lubben's antiporn ministry from the perspective of some porn performers that she and her followers were maligning.
At least, I thought that it was lost. Until, about a month ago, when much to my utter surprise, I discovered that I had saved the database which contained all of the posts that I thought I had previously lost.
Problem was, not being an expert on manipulationg databases within WordPress blogs, I wasn't able as of then to successfully transfer them to my new blog location. That's is, until last Friday...when I discovered that all I had to do was to change the URL in a certain field of my database from my former domain to my current one.
That, and a bit of minor jigging with some code, finally did the trick...and I am finally happy to anounce that my "old" SmackChron blog is now back in operation. I was even able to move all of the latest posts from the newer blog that I set up back over to the "old" location, so now everything is now consolidated
Essentially, the "old" blog is now located at my new domain, otherwise everything else remains accessible, including all the extraneous pages and other stuff.
I have updated the linkroll here reflecting the new URL; but here it is here for posterity sake:
The SmackDog Chronicles (Version 2.6)
The only difference is in the domain name (redgarterclub.com); otherwise, everything old is new again...and vice versa.
