Comment problem? Htaccess problem? help!

I had been wondering why I hadn’t had any comments between Sunday and Tuesday. I posted enough posts that surely some of you must have tried to comment … at least on my Green Thumb Sunday post. Didn’t you?

Early Sunday morning I put some code in this sites Htaccess file that would create a 301 redirect so that all pages on this site would go to an url with www in the address. It didn’t work well when I just put the code in, so I went to the options area in my blog and changed the blog directory address so that it had a www in the url.

That worked. Ta Da .. when I visited any page on my site the url had www in it. I wanted it that way because this site is a PR5 when the www is in the url, so to consolidate all the links to my site that are out there – some with www and some without I wanted to force the www.

What I didn’t realize was that if someone was visiting an url on the web that had been listed without the www they were automatically sent to the index.php page of this site.

I also just discovered that when I wanted to comment on one of my own posts that it just came up with a blank page when I hit submit. Did you guys encounter that too? Or were you ignoring me for the last couple of days.

Tell the truth, I promise I won’t be hurt if you ignored me.

So I guess I need some help. What I’ve tried to do on my own didn’t work. Julie tried to help me for quite some time last night but the codes she gave me to try didn’t work either. I contact my webhost support and they say “they don’t help people with scripts”. Hmmm nice.

I want this sites url to include the www so I need to do a 301 redirect. Anyone want to give me Htaccess codes that I can try? Please. What I was using didn’t work obviously.

Also, do I need to change anything in my blogs configuration? Maybe my mistake was adding the www to the blog address in the wp dashboards option area? But the code I tried didn’t work without me doing that.

One more thing … if you are a 301 redirect htaccess wizard … what code would I use for our other blogs that are listed as mydomain.com/blog I’ve tried to figure out an htaccess code for them that sets it so that they do NOT have the www in their urls, but I can’t figure that one out. Everything I’ve tried fails.

Help!

Oh and with the minor changes I made my wordpress wasn’t adding new categories anymore either. I only changed the two things that I mentioned. I couldn’t have messed things up that badly could I have?

Web design and Graphic Arts courses?

I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been seriously considering going back to school for some course in web design, graphics and perhaps internet marketing.

I have years of experience in creating websites for others and myself, but I never pursued this as a form of employment. It’s always been something I’ve done on the side.

Now that I’ve been stuck at home for about a year and a half due to my stupid illness I’ve discovered that I actually can make a living by doing work through the internet. Whether it be marketing or design I haven’t fully decided, but I really do think I should work on my skills and learn a few more things if I really want to make this work. So I’ve been looking at the courses at Collins College. I don’t know if I’ll take any of their courses, but it’s giving me some great ideas.

I’m actually in the middle of redesigning a few of our sites right now. This is the only one that’s giving me trouble. The coding isn’t complex but it’s not as straightforward as on all the rest of the blogs. One wrong move and the site doesn’t work anymore! Perhaps if I did take some courses weird code like the one that makes up this theme wouldn’t be as much of a problem?

If I was a horse you’d shoot me …

I really wanted to get around to all my Green Thumb Sunday participants today. I wanted to see what’s blooming in their gardens and weed the sites out that haven’t been participating in quite a while. I also wanted to visit some of the sites of people who participate in Photo Hunters and the Do Follow blogroll.

I had hoped to get into my garden for at least an hour to work on pruning and tidying the areas that I haven’t touched yet.

Most important of all I wanted and needed to redesign the theme for this blog – I’m tired of it, and I need to redesign it so I can put some ads up for the new network that I’ve been accepted into (my big deal!!), and to top it all off I wanted to re-design my husbands blog Guitar Licks too because it’s theme totally sucks and I’ve got a really cool theme to use for that site.

Forget mothers day. I’m not a mom. Chris’ family never got it together to do anything for his mom this weekend either so our Sunday was supposed to be free … for me to work …

I wasn’t able to do any of that today.

I think whatever my husbands been fighting since Friday got to me. Except since I have Crohn’s disease it hit my stomach hard and I’ve been in awful pain all day. Not to mention almost constantly feverish.

I feel horrid. I wasn’t able to eat much either. I tried to eat dinner but my abdomen really started to hurt once I got a bit of food down and I had to stop. I hope I’m not going into yet another flare. I’ve already been in a constant flare for more than two years – I don’t need it to peak again.

I’m so sick of this. I can’t make any plans. I can’t even rely on the small plans I make for myself because it always depends on how I’m feeling. This makes me feel useless.

I want to go to a big blogging convention in Las Vegas in November and I’m being asked already if I’m going and, honestly, I can’t say. All I can say is that I want to go. For all I know I’ll either be so sick I’ll be in the hospital at that time, or I might be feeling healthy for the first time in two years. I just don’t know.

Instead, on days like today I’m just lying on the couch, grimacing in pain. Watching TV to try to take my mind off of the hell my body is putting me through. At least I had the Survivor finale to watch this evening. Good going Earl!

If life’s a race I’m falling behind … and If I were a race horse people would be thinking about putting me down about now.

SharePoint is packed with cool features for your organizations hosting needs. It’s the leading Microsoft web solution for document management, information sharing and team collaboration, and Alentus is offering the new Windows SharePoint Services in shared or dedicated hosting environments.

Some fantastic features of SharePoint are the 40 different templates that you can choose from, as well as project tracking. Each Windows SharePoint website comes pre-configured with a wealth of built in features. If you need a website for project management, a Class room or even HR management templates can be installed and customized to your exact needs. With SharePoint you can create blogs, forums, and wikis to compliment your businesses website.

This Microsoft web solution is great for document management, information sharing and team collaboration. Your employees will be able to work collaboratively on many different tasks such as documents, lists, events, images, calendars, announcements, contacts and many more projects. There’s even a new portal tool with mobile access that will allow members of your team to collaborate and manage content remotely.

Package prices begin at $30.95/month for the SharePoint professional Plan and go up to 99.50/month for the SharePoint Fortune 500 plan.

All packages come with same day setup.

There are so many great features I can’t see how a small to large organization wouldn’t want to try this new Microsoft Windows SharePoint Hosting at Alentus. The prices of the three available packages seem reasonable as well.

I should mention that SharePoint is a secure tool that’s been built in a secure environment. Another important fact that any business would want when hosting their companies website.

The Alentus staff are knowledgeable, and the Alentus hosting site has a reputable uptime record.
