Heal Your Church WebSite

Teaching, rebuking, correcting & training in righteous web design.

Yes, in fact is is WordPress and …

Yes, in fact the final decision was indeed to use WordPress.

Though I did have to re-read-up on the ‘split’ command to import/convert the vast array of MT posts.

Now I just need to figure out a few theme thingies – and figure out how to path new stuff v. old stuff and we’ll be good to get started again.


  1. It’s about time! I’m waaaay past denial – I think I’m past anger, bargaining, and depression too. I think I was firmly into acceptance – but then you had to dredge up the old wounds! Now I’m going to have to begin checking this site hourly for updates again.

    I thought you were dead or something. I even tried email, and those bounced. I was beginning to think that it was me. I thought, “Surely this relationship couldn’t have come to an end! And so soon! With so much promise! And not even a ‘Dear Ted’ letter. Can we still be friends?”

    But alas, Mean^H^H^H^HDear Dean, you’re back. I think we can make it work. We can make beautiful websites together!

  2. I know, I’m such a tease that way.

  3. OK, so I leave your inactive, no comments allowed blog on my blogroll for months awaiting your promised move to WP and 3 days after I de-list you you’re back?!? (Hooray!!)

    You did that just to annoy me, didn’t you? :-)

    Now, about abandoning Movable Type …

  4. Uh, I commented, where’d it go? Hello? Beuler?

  5. Gotta have at least 1 comment approved before you can comment at will.

    And yes, I’m annoying.

  6. I figured it was something like that, but I didn’t get any message to that effect so I wondered.

    Oh, and, for the record, my first comment was completely tongue in cheek (contrary to the angry tone). I am very happy to re-link you after only 3 days ’cause I missed you.

    Welcome back.

  7. And thanks for the link back to me, I just noticed that!

  8. Welcome back Dean.

    When I first started reading your site I though – blogging for a Church website. That’s well, I didn’t get it.

    Now I’ve seen the light. I have my own and I am working on our Parish Committee to let me roll over the Church’s website to WordPress.

    Glad to see you’re back in action. Also, thanks for all the work over at blogs4God.

  9. Welcome back mate, and welcome to the ‘pres, good choice!

  11. Looks like I beat you back by two weeks :)

    I look forward to hearing about the other neat stuff you’re working on.

  12. Look forward to reading HYCW again..

  13. Sure would be nice if the comments would show some sign they’ve been accepted when you submit. Otherwise we might be multi-posting when it doesn’t show up. Is there anything you can do on that?

  14. I see that trying to post a second time does give you a warning that it’s duplicate material. That helps, but it’d be nicer to have some indication that the message *was* received, particularly since they don’t show up on the blog item immediately. Is this anything under your control or is it buried in wordpress code?

  15. I’ve installed a couple Word Press sites and think it’s a very flexible and simple tool.

    In fact, we’re about to use it for a church project — someone called me on the phone yesterday and started out “I don’t suppose you know anything about blogs, do you deb?”

    Today I was able to point them here as an example.

    Way to go, Dean!


  16. Hi Dean

    Just found your site through a link from IncDirectory script. The funny thing is that I am building a directory and will see if I can link it in to a standard wordpress install!

    I have used wp for years and thoroughly encourage the use of it as much as possible including our own church website.

    I have built a plugin to run a shop from wp and will continue to help in its development including promoting as a blog tool amongst Christians etc..

    Thanks for the work.
