PHP 7.4 Upgrade

Time to upgrade from PHP 7.2 to PHP 7.4

Back in May, I was forced to finally make the giant leap from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.2. Now we are at PHP 7.4, which is still not the most recent version, but it’s at a stable and supported version.

A theme switch and tweaked settings inside the theme have this site back to looking better and more like a completed blog site than a work in progress, given that this blog has been around for almost 20 years.

The theme is now the same Point theme that I use over on my main blog. So that makes ongoing changes easier. And with a new post that is ChillyWilly subject-based for the Christmas holiday, maybe this long overdue cleanup of this blog will have more regular posts.

PHP 7.2 Upgrade

When your web hosting company sends you an email with a date of when they no longer support PHP 5.6 AND your WordPress panel keeps reminding you that your PHP is out of date, it’s time to make changes. I’ve had the previous Theme in use for years and switching to PHP 7.2 broke the theme.

So now I have this theme that I am trying to customize to look good. In the meantime, it will not look so good. Once I can find the right options, I can get this site looking better once again.

Until the next PHP upgrade forces a switch to a compatible Theme.
