Still checking things, and may well go out for a few hours to get a break from the screen…but it looks pretty good right now :o)
So if you go to the site now, you will see the “Go Daddy” host page. Go Daddy provide the hosting for the site, so don’t worry, this is as it should be while the site is down.
There was nothing major wrong with the site, but we needed to change a whole bunch of files, and there are a number of little things that needed to be added and adjusted. So we have taken it down while we work on that. We wanted to get the site up asap and ended up rushing it a little bit – but I don’t want it up with a load of things still to be done (other than uploading) because it was stressing us both out to feel the site was structurally incomplete.
So we are tying up as many loose ends and things we are unhappy with. We still hope to get it up over the weekend or early next week.
Whoever left the comment about “at least 1 more week of delay” was spot on, lol…
…we have run into more problems. So we are going to work through the weekend and try to sort them out. We thought it was all ready to go, but it wasn’t :o(
Will let you know more as soon as I have something interesting to tell you..
Everything is looking good. I am changing over links as I said in the previous post. I was going to put the site up, then change the links. But in retrospect, that would be a bit daft – the site would be up but not working right. So instead, I am sorting out the links, then putting up the site. It will be up later today, probably around 6pm New Jersey time!
After a bit of messing around, we got the site up and running.
We have now taken it down again because the site has loaded up but the links to artwork and downloads have changed. I have to go through the entire site correcting them. Its not a major problem, but it is a tedious job, so I am going to start it fresh in the morning, and sort it out all day tomorrow, so that by the end of the day it will be a functioning website!
The next post will be made on the front page of the new site tomorrow, around 10am – ish New York US time (thats 5 hours behind UK time, so 3pm) and I will keep you updated as the day goes by…
Despite one sneak preview by Nav (you must have been bored and spying mate!) we have run into a few issues getting the site online. We will try again tomorrow, but we only have the evenings at the moment! So bear with us, we are doing our best :o) this is all new to us, so we are learning as we go along.
We are very close though. As soon as we work out what’s stopping everything from working, we will fix it, ha ha!
Seriously, though, we just have a few bugs to sort out and we are too tired to do any more tonight!
The site will have finally uploaded in the next few hours. We still have to add a little bit of code, and double check things are working. If all is well, then it will go up later today / tomorrow. If not, then not – you know how it is, we are new to this so the chance of getting it wrong is high lol…
As for the torrent thing, there’s no need to worry about it just yet – its an emergency option if we have a problem with too many downloads. But we shouldn’t need it :o) Nice one…
