New Look and a Safer Website (I Hope!)

Posted on

Some of you may have noticed that my website looks a little different, at least assuming you are still returning to my site.  It turns out that in the not too distant past there was a compromise on several of the Wordpress websites on my hosting page, and mine was one of them.  As such, code was added to my site to redirect the first visit for the day to various websites, some of them not very good, and definitely not safe for work.  The options given to me by my host weren't ideal, so I decided to reinstall Wordpress from scratch, and then restore the database.  It took some doing, but everything is now up and running, and no bad code to be seen.  It will take me some time to restore a lot of the previous plugins that made my site useful, but that's a small price to pay for a clean site and URL.  After all, if you can't trust my website, why would you visit?  If anyone still has trouble with my site, please let me know!
