I Quit Mambo

Written by Kodi Wolf at 8:25 PM

Yes, I've finally given up on Mambo. I was willing to hang in there and stick with it, I really was... Right up until I upgraded the version I was using so that it would work in Internet Explorer on Windows Vista and it deleted half the edits I'd made and changed enough files and code around that I would have had to go digging for weeks to redo all my edits. So, I said, "Fuck it," and decided to create all that they were offering from scratch.

So far, it seems to be working pretty well (and at the very least, way better than Mambo). I've learned enough CSS to do most of what my Mambo template was doing, as well as finding a free poll script, which was actually one of the main reasons I was interested in Mambo in the first place.

One of the other reasons was to have a blog, which I've now moved to Blogger.com (owned by Google). Their system lets me host it on my own domain, but they keep the code on their site. I just started this today and I've already wrapped the blog in my site's template, customized the blog to look pretty much the way I want it to, and I've even transferred the posts from Mambo. Now, that's how it should be. The only issue I've run into is that sometimes when I try to post, it seems to hang, and the hanging can last for quite a while before it gets back to being just a few seconds. The only thing I can think of is that there's a lot of traffic or something.

Well, I think I've done enough for today.

Oh, quick update to the last post: It wasn't the flu I had, it was bronchitis, and my doctor said it was very good that I came in and got checked out because it could have turned into pneumonia really easily.
