It’s probably worth me starting this post by saying that given the number of people who have downloaded Hunsdon or the new libraries (three whole downloads on the libraries), it’s either time for me to quit this lark, or the problem with the SSL certificate is being completely misunderstood. I’m hoping the latter, because most people really don’t know how this stuff works. Whichever, words have been passed between the ISP and us, with the result that this site will hopefully be moving to a new server.Continue reading “Moves May Be Afoot”
So, after a lot of poking, prodding, cajoling and peeking, it appears that ALL the internal WordPress links are already relative, rather than full, links. As a result, it appears that there’s nothing I can do to actually fix this problem. I’m passing it on to local Tech Support (also known as “Mrs. P”) to contact the domain host and ask them to remove the bleeping redirect. I don’t need this site to be SSL and their implementation of the certificate has caused hours of problems for absolutely no benefit whatsoever.
Net result: FAIL.
So I did this.
Yes, I’m aware that the field boundaries and roads don’t quite line up… I had a choice between making the airfield remains match the historical photograph or making the surrounding area match the historical photograph, so I went for the airfield option. If you take off the old photo, the airfield sits perfectly on the modern day imagery beneath it. Lens effect maybe? Not sure. Whatever. I now need to try and find a Aerodrome Reference Plan or something to place all the buildings, because while they are clearly visible on the old photo, they’re far from identifiable on it, unfortunately.
Or I could just guess!
OK, so it may not look that pretty, but I’ve solved the unreadable menus problem, using the “Additional CSS” tab, significant amounts of poking and prodding, plus a lot of scrolling through lists of colour names that browsers will recognise and display, then trial and error to find a combination that works.
Next up? Trying to fix the fact that certain AV programs still keep giving a “fail safe” false positive and insisting that my website is unsafe. I do actually have scenery to publish, but I have to get the site working, first!Continue reading “Transparency Solidified”
