Thus ends the second weekend of me desperately trying to rebuild my site as a result of one HELL of a lot of code going bad after Cracked.com’s recent site upgrade. (I used to work with them and had my webpage on-site, meaning a lot of code that worked at the time is now retarded.)
The upshot is I’ve had to completely rebuild my site from scratch on WordPress, and with some 500-odd entries, I’m sure you can imagine how easy a transfer like that’s been.
As of now, I’d say about 75% of the site works and can be accessed from the sidebar on the right. Content that had unique coding will have to be redone manually. At a guess, this is gonna mean most of the most popular areas of the site, including Back of the Bible, Superman Comics, Batman Comics, Batman Primer, Lordo Ringfellow, Me and Fred Savage, News Skim Comics, etc etc etc.
I’ll be getting these various areas of the site online throughout November, and appreciate the patience of what few readers have even bothered to remain with the site throughout this unfortunate bullshit parade of massive code breakdown. Hopefully I’ll be able to get things shipshape over the next several weeks as time warrants (rest assured, at least, that I’m aware of what’s broken and it’s on the list); tweak the look of the existing site; and finally open up a thread in the forum for any errors I might have missed.
In the meantime, my funny wife Karla’s been spending all of her free time USING the WordPress interface instead of eating up entire weekends transfering archived content onto it, and so unlike myself actually has new updates. Read them here.
Lastly, if you’ve got any bookmarks to JP.com, to the forum or otherwise, remember that a “cracked” in the URL is the Kiss of Death for the new site. All URLs should be forwarding to plain ol’ “jaypinkerton.com.” If you’re finding otherwise, you’re using old code, sir.
