What did you do yesterday? I spent the day making myself crazy (which isn’t a terribly far walk).
I maintain three websites. My own. One for a friend. And one for the company that my husband and I own. It was that company one that was and still is driving me crazy.
After many hard drive crashes and many years, it has become so convoluted it’s unmanageable. I don’t know why but whole folders replicate themselves. Instead of having two templates, I have three copies of those two templates in various hidey holes on the site.
During the breakdown of the site, which you can see in this picture, I discovered spam has been deposited in two folders. Hundreds of spam from places like Abercrombie Fitch and Naked Women for You.
What you see in that picture took me hours. I call it the tree layout of the site.
Now I think my only choice is to recreate the entire site, somehow delete everything that’s online and put up the new version. Then figure out how to stop spam. It’ll take me days if not weeks to do that. In the meantime, the site has glitches that I can’t correct. Grrr.
I’m seriously going to look into taking Dreamweaver classes. I taught myself Dreamweaver. Clearly, I had a crappy teacher.
