Engage with WordPress. It’s fun!

It's my weekly blog about WordPress, technology and life. Mostly WordPress.

Keeping it local…

By Dave Bell | May 25, 2017

I enjoy working with local companies to increase sales through their website. Lately I have had to fortune of working with a great variety of this type of client. The client I would like to feature this week is Krikorian Hardwood Floors, Inc. We will be adding some more information in the near future about…

CapeWP uses 20 year old tech to host your website. Here’s why…

By Dave Bell | May 18, 2017

You would think I would be using the latest and greatest software to make your website the best it can be. But the truth is that Linux and cPanel have been around for a long time. I am too lazy to Google it, so I use 20 years as an approximation. The first layer of…

Major changes to eBay and WordPress, wow!

By Dave Bell | May 12, 2017

  Many who have known me know I have always been a big fan of eBay. I do not think I would even be alive without them. Because the last I checked, I had sold a total of about $44,605 dollars worth of stuff on eBay. Over 12-15 years or so. Just today, I placed…

fiber optic cable

Report for the week…

By Dave Bell | May 5, 2017

The GeekGirl tech conference in Harwich was a great success. I stayed for about an hour. I spoke to the good people at OpenCape about fiber optics. Very interesting. In the photo above, see the thin green “wire”. Keeping in mind that the entire cable with all the colored “wires” wrapped around it is about…

RIP Internet Exporer

And the Internet grows up…

By Dave Bell | April 28, 2017

You heard it here first. In the next version of WordPress, version 4.8, Internet Explorer versions eight nine and ten are no longer supported. This is huge for the folks who have had to spend countless extra hours making their clients website design work properly on this browser. Two questions pop up. 1. Why would…

My cat Happy

T G I F

By Dave Bell | April 22, 2017

What a week! Major fire at the house next to mine. No one hurt, dog rescued, Happy and I are safe (we bugged out). Moral: Smoking is bad for you and your house. Best to quit that insane habit. The rest of my week was taken up by working on websites. I was so focused…

Wild turkeys

And it’s Easter. Well, close enough 🙂

By Dave Bell | April 14, 2017

Happy Easter to you. It has been a week for sure. Mostly deep in the land of the web and technology for me. No one ever said it would be easy 🙂 I wish all my readers and their friends and families a good Easter weekend. Me, well, I do not like ham and I…

Windows 95 launch party

What a long strange trip it’s been…

By Dave Bell | April 6, 2017

If you look closely, you can see me in the photo. Not really, but I could have been. Because that fateful night when Windows 95 was launched, I drove to Egghead Software in Weymouth (where I was friends with my former manager) from Truro Cape Cod. I was like a kid in the candy shop!…

trail in the woods

Here are two tech/Internet tips you can use.

By Dave Bell | March 31, 2017

Sometimes the deep intuition comes to me and sometimes not. This time, not. So I am keeping it simple. Chances are if you buy a new computer at retail, it has a bunch of what is called “crapware” on it. You know, all the Dropbox, AOL, eBay, Amazon etc. icons all over your brand new…

Which WordPress for you

It just so happened…

By Dave Bell | March 21, 2017

That last week, about a few hours after my blog post was sent, I stumbled across an article on the same topic. Basically, What are the two types of WordPress and which is for you. Here is a link to that article. It is the best I have seen on the subject. As a refresher,…

WordPress websites

So you want to start a blog…

By Dave Bell | March 17, 2017

I recommend not calling me. And here’s why. There is no need to. Because, after the initial call/meeting for learning what you need, I will charge for my time and expertise. Why not go free? Well, I got a couple of reason’s, not the least of which is “There is no such thing as a…

desert stars

WordPress is not perfect. But it sure comes close.

By Dave Bell | March 10, 2017

Here is why. Over the past few weeks I had the opportunity to teach a client or two some things about how to work with WordPress. I have, over the years, taught a few folks about the magic of WordPress. But it is not something I do all that often. Usually, I design, build, host…
