Last week I reported to Typepad that there were a couple of bugaboos with the blog design composition area. I would select some desired changes, save them, and then go view the changes to the blog on the live site.
But -- no change.
So I submitted a help ticket to report my issue. And a bunch of helpful people tried to tackle the problem.
After a week, I tried submitting a post, and the problem was still not resolved.
I mean, no biggie, right. After all, it's not like I have hundreds of people reading my little mud puddle on the great information highway.
But paying good money for where you set up shop, and it's been around for over 10 years, so you'd think you'd get a little help. (Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the attempt to resolve the situations, but it just seemed like it wasn't going to work.)
I was left with a big decision. Do I redesign or do I relocate?
I really didn't want to relocate unless I absolutely had to. I would have to transfer all the posts I've made (now over 1700) and that process would surely have its fair share of headaches. Then there would be the decision of where to go. Ugh... After 10 years, I figured I would explore a little on Typepad and see if there was another template I could modify. It took a little hunting, but I found one, and it seems to be taking shape fairly well. Let me know what you think...
