Back for good???

I’ve finally got around to upgrading the site to the latest version of WordPress, something I should have done a long while ago but the recent security issues prompted me to finally get it done. I’d heard a variety of horror stories relating to the upgrade process but all went through without incident. Thanks should go out to Vero who I had a quick chat with before hand. Her thirty-second tid-bit, turn off all the plugins and backup, backup, backup . . . good advice at any time but especially so during an upgrade (as my ex-honeymoon photos would attest to).

There’s a lot going on at the moment so I figured I’d start chatting again on here, probably more as an extension of things I Tweet about but there you go. I wonder how long the updates will last this time 😉

Hello WordPress, hello iPhone blogging

So this is WordPress huh . . . looks simple enough I guess.

this will be the new, temporary home of Smufflersworld. I’ll be here for as long as it takes my current web host to upgrade to PHP 4.1 or until I discover that I can’t do everything I want/need to do using WordPress.

My site used to be based over at (and will be again) and was based on the Joomla content management system. It’s good, flexable and pretty expandable but I’m increasingly finding that it can’t quite do what I want to do in the way that I want to do it. After a couple of recommendations I’ve decided to give WordPress a go and see how it flys.

One of the things that has pushed me over to WordPress was their new iPhone app meaning that I can actually do something on the train offline (connectivity on the London to Cambridge line is appalling) and not lose it.

If you know me you know that they’ll be plenty more babble on here later, including some info about what I need this site to be able to do and hopefully I can get some help/advice on how to do it

Anyhoo I’ve got work to do . . .
