Well, after some upgrades yesterday all was well. Except I had coded my site to automatically include ratings on any post with mixes. Since I did that, any old posts where I manually included the ratings had the ratings showing up twice. So today I tried to do a search and replace to get rid of the ratings shortcode. Well, the plugin I used failed miserably, and just deleted the letters in the word ratings from all my posts. So years worth of website has been ruined. I did keep weekly backups, multiple copies. One on server, and one emailed to me. Somehow, they are all corrupt back to March. So, I have contacted my host and am hoping they can set me straight by rolling back my database a day or so. If they can, we are golden. If not, rvoodoo.com will have to start all over. woof……

Well, as you can see, some of the website is fixed. I was experimenting some, and realized that I could revert each post back to its prior revision. So the pages are done, as are the member profiles, and the posts on the first page. That’s all I’m doing today. I’m going to wait until I hear back from godaddy. I’m happy to know that I can fix my website, but it will probably take a week to revert each post. So before I do that, I’m going to hope that the DB can be restored for me.
