Trying out the Mars Edit tool

I down­loaded Mars Edit. It allows me to com­pose web site posts directly on my Mac­in­tosh lap­top. I’m hop­ing this will sim­plify things for me. So far, it looks good! I’ll try adding a photo and see how this goes!

WordPress Scheduled Posts Not Appearing

Well. I wrote the entire Shar­ing our Knowl­edge series, and sched­uled the arti­cles to come out once per day. Two days passed, and noth­ing appeared! A bit of look­ing around with Google shows that many other Web­mas­ters have hit the same prob­lem. The “sched­ule a post” fea­ture is bro­ken in the lat­est ver­sions of Word­Press. (Word­Press is the soft­ware run­ning this Web site.)

I’ve wasted the past hour going through var­i­ous peo­ples’ attempts to solve the prob­lem. No luck! For­tu­nately, some­one has solved it, and pro­vided a Word­Press Plu­gin to fix it. And… it looks like it’s fixed! Kudos to 5ubliminal and the Sched­uled M.I.A.s Plu­gin!

2009 Reunion Picnic Dinner, Dixon Illinois

2009 Reunion Pic­nic Din­ner, Dixon Illinois

As I took over Web­mas­ter duties in Spring 2009, I was pleas­antly sur­prised to see how much infor­ma­tion we do have avail­able to our mem­bers online. We are now ready for more! Next time you stop by, look for…

  • The 2009 Strong Fam­ily Reunion pho­tos, includ­ing the Reunion Pic­nic, Strong­hold Cas­tle Tour, Dixon His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety, Offi­cial Group Pho­tos, Reunion Din­ner, and Wal­greens Fam­ily Connection
  • The Mes­sage Board, for gen­eral dis­cus­sion and His­to­rian Inquiries
  • My thoughts on Shar­ing our Knowledge
  • Pho­tos from the His­to­rian Archives project
  • Browse around our Strong Fam­ily tree in the Geneal­ogy section
  • This Strong Newslet­ter, and all future Strong Newsletters

I hope you like the light and airy, slightly out­doorsy, “look and feel” of our site makeover!

What would you like to have on our Web site? Is there any­thing Strong-related that you’d like to share with the world at large? We have plenty of room for pho­tos, arti­cles, anec­dotes – any­thing at all that we have per­mis­sion to make public.

Send me any ques­tions, sug­ges­tions, pho­tos or other material:

Inquiries Board is Now Open

We now have a Strong Fam­ily Asso­ci­a­tion of Amer­ica mes­sage board — open to every­one. You need to reg­is­ter to post on the board, but reg­is­tra­tion is free. (Oth­er­wise we will be over­run by spammers!)

I opened areas for Gen­eral Dis­cus­sion, and for Genealog­i­cal Inquiries. If you would like other sec­tions cre­ated, just let me know! The mes­sage board soft­ware is new to me. If you see any prob­lems, or have any sug­ges­tions, please let me know right away!
