Home page embarrassment

The Jets played the Patriots this past Sunday. But a preview on their matchup still is the lead front page story.

It's already Thursday.

Embarrassing.

I know Shrink cared deeply about the front page and would strive to have fresh stories and updated headlines.

Guess that's not the case anymore.

Nope still the case Stephen however when only one person has the ability to update it and she has issues preventing her from accessing it that poses a problem.

She should have her desktop back this afternoon though and should be able to get it done :)

Also,

The front page was not updated every day when Ken was alive. The lead story was almost every day but the other stories could go several days without being done.

I remember at least once where the same article was up for almost a week some time before Ball and I even took it over from the previous person.

If I had the software and the IE that worked on this computer it would have been updated Monday and Wednesday for sure (JK Blog and Winning Wed)

However, when my IE won't work on the laptop I am to the point where I can log in go to edit and it shuts down.

I managed to miss every virus that went through EOG only for one of my kids to get one while I was gone on Monday.... 2938u4ji23

Re: Home page embarrassment

Nope as I said, I missed ALL of the EOG ones.

I had to leave for a bit on Monday while I was gone my son was playing on my computer when I came home my computer was shot.

I tried fixing it myself, no avail.

Sent it in to my regular guy and he had nine other computers ahead of mine.

This afternoon he is suppose to have it done if not, tomorrow morning.

Right now, I have the laptop set up with all of my desktop equipment attached.

So basically I am running like a desktop (monitor, keyboard, etc) but with the laptop.

Only thing that really messes with ya is the two screens showing the exact same thing

Re: Home page embarrassment

That's ridiculous that only one person can access that portion of the website.

Do people even read those articles? I sure as hell don't.

Re: Home page embarrassment

No kidding.

That's why I asked if you wanted to learn how.

I know how to edit it by heart and could walk someone through pretty much blindfolded :+textinb3

Our tech company can but they charge by the hour and I try not to use them unless it is something REALLY important... (considering how much we have used them this month already the front page has been the least of our tech issues...)

It can take up to two hours to do the front page if it is done correctly...

WTW its not about if people read them

Re: Home page embarrassment

Front page has been slow for a while. When Shrink died it took two days to get a notice of his death up on the front page.

Incorrect.

Shrink's death was on the forum on a Saturday by Sunday late morning the article was on the front page.

It would have been sooner but a few different people were involved in writing it
