Yey, technical difficulties are so much fun. Especially when they’re the fault of someone else.
Having recently renewed the domains for TigerTails Radio and TigerTails Gaming, we’ve fallen foul of a problem our domain provider is having with URL forwarding, which hides the ugly tigertails.co.uk/whatever/ name and gives it the pretty tigertailsradio.co.uk or tigertailsgaming.co.uk that we’re all used to.
So, while the outage happens, you can reach TigerTails Radio and TigerTails Gaming at the following URLs:
http://radio.tigertails.co.uk/site/ – TigerTails Radio
http://tigertails.co.uk/tigertailsgaming/ – TigerTails Gaming
While the main .co.uk addresses might be down, the websites are not. Yet.
Oh, and if anyone is thinking about getting anything with Plusnet… Don’t.
All sites are back up and running as per normal. Whooo! Use the links on the right to go visit them.
With one web host dead, another one comes along. The downside of this is there was no easy way to migrate the WordPress build from the old host to the new one. So, transition period time. So far, this is the only site on the TigerTails Entertainment network that will be working for a short time. TigerTails Radio will go live next, followed by TigerTails Gaming, and then Done and Dusted.
The new hosting company does not support Networked WordPress as the previous host did. The upside of this is the ability to have subdomains. The downside is every site will become its own site, and no resources can be shared. This is a bother as TigerTails Radio and TigerTails Gaming shared certain social plugins.
So, progress is happening. Not all that fast as this is a lot of work, but it is happening. Watch this space.
Yes I know updates to this site have been lax. We’re working on it.
In the meantime, why not pop over to the TigerTails Gaming page, where Xavier has been posting regular footage from his Lets Play adventures, and more of the Team TigerTails’ Adventures in Minecraft have been uploaded.
Over in TigerTails Radio land, the weekly show is still ongoing, and is soon to turn 9 years old!
New videos from TigerTails TV will be shown here in the near future! Promise.
It’s time to stop thinking about this site as a collection of static pages, and start updating people on what is going on in the TigerTails Entertainment Network. This is what those young people call progress, isn’t it? I’m not sure if I approve. Still, let’s roll with it and see what happens.
TO THE PROGRESSMOBILE!
TigerTails Entertainment is changing from a static website to a WordPress site. This is to allow the main site to be more flexible than ever before, with content that is regularly updated – instead of the make-it-and-leave-it format of the site before. However, due to the blogging site Posterous closing, many other TigerTails Entertainment sites and blogs are also having to move – and they need to be all set up before work on the main site can properly continue.
So, instead of this page, why not go and visit a site that’s been finished and is currently up and running – TigerTails Radio, for example. There’s much more to look at there. Promise.
So this is basically an “Under Construction” page, thanks to changes having to be made to a live site – it’s not something that can be developed “behind the scenes”, as it were.
