Issues & Projects for May / June / July

  • Still working on transfering data from Access into a Google Spreadsheet so we don't lose the information.
  • Updated the links for Wayne County Government to their updated look/location.
  • Studies articles on GDPR. Made educated guess that we won't be that affected, so putting this on hold for now to work on other pressing issues.
  • Large invoice runs in July - working overtime to get them out before I went on vacation the 1st of July.
  • Updated the software for XML sitemap. Add Every Child Can Read to volunteer listings.
  • Filed Business Entity Report with the State. Good for 2 years.
  • Researched, installed and then troubleshooted issues that arose from installing an SSL certificate. We now have a "secure" site - mostly. There are still some rogue scrips on the site somewhere that I have yet to track down, so Google is still dinging us, but we get the "lock" in Firefox. Will continue working on this one.
  • The installation of the SSL certificate broke the script that ran "Talk of the Town" and I haven't been able to figure out how to fix it. Since the only feature we were really using was for our News Releases, I transfered that over to a straight HTML page. Pluses and minues, but in general, I think this works better for our visitors.
  • Continued research and finally figured out it was our .htaccess file that was causing the site not to show up if the "www" wasn't included in the address. That's been fixed.
  • Had to update all the Flickr scripts as they were out of date and causing the security https not to work properly.
  • One day of troubleshooting webhosting problems that caused the entire backend of the site to disappear - only the home page was showing. Fixed by amhosting.com.
  • Took one week of vacation from July 2nd through 9th.

    Note that our unique visits are down significantly, likely due to our site being "dinged" by Google for not being "mobile-friendly".

    Historical Background

    The figures that were formerly in this section were created from the statistics generated by the AWStats program offered online by our web host.

    One of the major changes that occurred when AMHosting moved our site to a new server was that we no longer have access to AWStats, the statistics program we used for years.

    The downside is that we can no longer compare apples to apples when looking at our historical data. The good news is that we have had Google Analytics set up on the site for some time, so we can still maintain a long-term overview by looking at this service.
