Way back in 2013 I wrote a post called Why Thesis V2.03 Still Sucks. I’ve never liked Thesis which is why I run in on my Load Of Bullshit blog. Anyway, two years ago I tried to update that blog in the hope that their latest Thesis V2.03 would be better than the one I was running V1.8.6. As it turned out Thesis V2.03 was even more crappier than the one I was running. Shit, it wouldn’t even load. All I got was the white screen of death.
So I hit the Forums in the hope someone there could help. No joy there at all. So I decided to stick with the older version.
Anyway, I’ve noticed of late that Google has been sending out emails about how important it was to have blogs / websites that were mobile friendly. (More about that in the next post). Something had to be done because Google hated the version of Thesis that I was using.
So, some two years later I head on over to the Thesis to download their latest theme. Imagine my surprise when they were still using Thesis V2.03! Surely they would have resolved the white screen of death issue?
So I installed the latest Thesis V2.03 only to find that it still did not work. I still got the irritating white screen of death. Once again their forums were useless!
That’s it! I’ve had enough. I know I paid good money for Thesis but whats the point if it doesn’t do the job properly. I did the only thing I could do. Something I should have done all those years ago when I discovered that Thesis was nowhere near as good as they all promoted it to be. Shit, as far as I was concerned then it’s absolutely crap.
So, I have given Thesis V2.03 and every other Thesis the bullet. It’s now dead to me and will never run one of my blogs again.
I know there are a lot of bloggers out there who will swear by it. But you know what I don’t care. I’m happy that it works for you. It obviously never worked for me.
I’m not fussed though because my Load Of Bullshit blog now runs the best theme ever. FlexSqueeze2!
As always it was so easy to set up. I made the blog even wider than my other blogs with double sidebars on the left. I decided not to have the title in the header opting for integrating it into the header itself. The blog looks so much better. Heck it runs better and yes it’s Mobile friendly.
Don’t forget to look out for my next post where I’ll show you why I thing the FlexSqueeze2 mobile version is so much better than most of the other themes out there.
There are lots of ways to share your favourite posts. Some people Tweet them. Some like to share them with their FaceBook buddies. Because of the SEO benefits of having images in your posts there are a lot of bloggers out there happily sharing their stuff with Pinterest as well. Personally I like to share my posts with all of them but my favourite is StumbleUpon. If you”re not a member you can join here.
StumbleUpon is a discovery engine (a form of web search engine) that finds and recommends web content to its users. Its features allow users to discover and rate Web pages, photos, and videos that are personalized to their tastes and interests using peer-sourcing and social-networking principles.
I was at work yesterday and I was having as good a time as you can have when you’re at work. Until the boss came up to me and asked me to go on checkout. I told him I wasn’t comfortable doing that as I hadn’t received enough training. Typical bloody boss wouldn’t listen to me and made me go on anyway. Said he would be right there with me to help me out.
Wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I got on the wanker left me there. Needless to say things went downhill from there. The customer didn’t want some stuff and I didn’t know how to remove them from the total. Then the credit card wouldn’t take and I didn’t know what to do. I hate not knowing what to do and looking inept in front of others. I did the only thing I could do in that situation and I blamed it on the company for not training me properly so I could provide her with the good service she deserved.
After logging off the boss saw me and asked me how it went. I told him it was crap and if he ever put me through that again I’d be looking for another job. I used to work for this company many years ago and in those days their training was exceptional. Not so these days. Read the rest of this entry
