frickin lovely. (update, by the way)

there is no "visual editor" - it says visual, but it's html. If I click on HTML, the editor box closes. And it STINKING DOESN'T COME BACK.

If I follow the upgrade directions, it screws my blog (I'd love to use stronger language...here in my office, I am.)

I don't even know if THIS will work

I'm just going to put ALL of the files back and see what happens then


Ok...I backed up MzEllen using WinSCP to my desktop.  Then I updated wordpress.  It screwed my website.  REALLY BAD.

So I backgraded to the old version, got my website back.

Downloaded PHPmyadmin for wordpress (it's a plugin), installed it and tried to run it.

I don't know where the backup goes. Ok...got the backup sql file on my desktop.

What happens if the upgrade loses my posts?  Can I just use the same backup that I grabbed this morning and put the old version of wordpress up?  Or just replace the .sql (which does not have the same name as the one in the WinSCP window.

I think I read that the new wordpress version has automatic backups and upgrades.  That would be a good thing.

SCREW IT.  I'm leaving it for now.

11 - What church do you belong to? - Why?

At this time, I do not have a church membership. I attend a Christian Reformed Church that I'm fairly comfortable at, who will let me work in the limited number of ministries that they have - and the music worship is all I could hope for.

I do not have a membership because I'm complementarian and this church has a co-pastorship that is a husband and wife team. I do not feel comfortable at this time, taking an official membership in a church that I disagree with on a core doctrine.

I have visited many churches and this is the one that I like - other than this one issue. In the fall, I plan to talk to the pastors about the issue. My pledge will be that I will not undermine Pastor Amy and that I will not be the one to bring up the issue with another congregant. If they can live with that, I can live with membership there.

12- * Discover how you form your views. What is the reasoning-believing process? How do you handle the Bible?

I'm Reformed.  Sola Scriptura...and "come, let us reason".  Part of the "reasoning" is digging through both sides of the issue and discovering which side has not only the best "pro", but the fewest weak points.

I have radically changed views at least once in my life, leaving a Nazarene Church for a Reformed Church.  This was done after two years of studying and debate and not done lightly.  I've never looked back.
