  • PHP Forms are the work of the Devil

    I am at the end of my rope.  I’ve been screwing with this PHP form for hours now, and the only conclusion I can come up with is I need to burn it all down and start over.

    The Memoriam script on TRC has stopped uploading images, and I can’t for the life of me figure out why.  It was written YEARS ago by my friend Mikey P., and he’s been missing for a year. I just can’t figure out why this isn’t working. The whole form works, but the minute you submit it, it looses the picture entirely!!

    I’m going to have to start over from scratch, and thats the LAST thing I want to friggen do.


  • Progress on TRC 9.0

    I have been diligently working on TRC 9.0 for the last… well, several months.  I’m finally at a point where its mostly done, and just needs some testing / tweaking.


    Yes, its a new domain name!  I figured 20 years in, we were due for a new domain. Also, it will make it easier migrating from Drupal to WordPress, as I need to keep some portions of the old site as they are and moving Drupal to another domain was something I didn’t want to deal with, even remotely.

    Check out the site, give me some feedback.  I need to find anything and everything that isn’t working correctly so it can get fixed before I switch the site over to being live!

  • TRC 9 Progress Update

    I’ve been working on TRC 9 a bit lately.  Made some progress, had some setbacks, the usual.

    I’ve been trying to figure out what to do about the news archive that is in Drupal. I managed to find a plugin that will import content from a Drupal site, but sadly it imports every thing with today’s date. That doesn’t really work the backlog of posts on the site.

    I’m back to square one, so I’ll need to find some way to preserve what we have with Drupal. I’m thinking this is a good reason to get a new domain for the new version of the site. I’m still thinking it all over.

    But I did make progress.  Got quite a few static pages converted over!


  • TRC: Big things are coming…

    I made some progress on TRC 9 this weekend. Finally settled on a WordPress theme and pulled the trigger on buying it.  I have a lot of configuration to do still, but the picture is a sneak peak.

    Its all uphill from here.  Need to get the layout/theme straightened out to where I like it, then start the arduous process of converting the bulk of the site.

    Expect more updates in the coming weeks 🙂

  • TRC 9 Progress

    I spent some time this evening running another battery of tests for my WordPress Alternative idea for the new version of TRC.

    The tests went successfully!  It actually looks I’ll be able to do just about everything I need to to make TRC work similar to how it does now. In some ways, better!

    I think I’m confident that this method will work, and I’m going to start moving ahead with it.  The next step is a bit of a daunting one though, as I need to find the PERFECT theme.  I’ve already accepted that I’m going to have get a paid one and stop getting by with free ones.  TRC deserves the best after all!

    If anyone would like to help me out, I’m looking for suggestions for WordPress themes. Send ’em my way!  I do have a few requirements though:

    • Page Templates: Full Page-Width, 1 & 2 Columns
    • Color Customization – we gotta use the TRC blue!

    I feel its gonna take some time to find just the right theme, so watch for future updates!
