I completely forgot to setup the email settings on the Demo Site 3 when I set it but as of today you can register and get the email needed to confirm registration and start posting on that site, with editor privleges.
That means you can upload images to the Library and create posts. So give it a try. I will leave it active for at least 3 more days.
I decided to test out demo site 3 just to make sure I had fixed it. The entire process was somewhere between 15-20 minutes. I picked a random theme, customized it, edited the sample page and created a post.
So go visit that demo site and leave a comment or try out one of the other demo sites yourself!
So you have decided to host your own website in much the same fashion as I do. I applaud you for your determination and for your ability to see beyond the corporate hosting stucture!
Of course, eventually, because you are a single point of contact on the interweb, just as I am, your site might drop off the radar when the power drops out. I know, that is not normal for you East/West coast, big city jackasses, but in the rest of the USA it does happen.
So what do I do to bring my website(s) back online here in the land of Daniel Boone and backwards thinking? Well….I use Wake on Lan…yeah an APP on Google Play to wake the PC up once the power has been restored. Then I use another FREE app called Teamviewer to control my sorry ass Windows 7 machine and re-fire the Linux VM.
