After a couple (3.5) of years running on the Headway theme for WordPress, I’ve decided to go back to a simple standard WordPress theme. That of 2016, or Twenty Sixteen. The advantage is it can run on the PHP 7. series of PHP scripting language, which seems much more economic than the 5. series. Maybe we’ll be a bit more future proof as well. The front page seems to load a lot faster using this combination. Especially because the Headway theme caused some errors According to a much appreciated plugin that analyzes your page deploying, Query Monitor . I’ve run the sisterblog on twenty sixteen and that went well for maybe 6 months.

Coolia is a nickname I’ve invented for my cool coauthor Julia Osovskaya (don’t forget to read all posts of Julia) and when I found this photo on her FB timeline I couldn’t resist publishing it here.

Back to Basics

You may have noticed the publication frequency was low in the past period. That had 4 reasons:

  1. I was very busy running my small hotel Haagsche Suites.
  2. Two Grand Children were born in the last three months. Now I’m the proud Grandpa of 4 and I’ve enjoyed every minute with them thus far.
  3. We have had a very nice summery period here in The Netherlands, so I’ve taken off and went to the beach sometimes
  4. I was running an experiment to host this site on another server from another hosting company. If you’re interested you can read more about the adventure at Happy Hotelier

I’ve brought back the possibility to auto translate our English posts in 60 + languages. Auto translation is not ideal, but it may help all our foreign language fans.

And we’re back at Dediserve.

Stay tuned!
