Another Look Into The Unknown!

On my last posting you may have remembered,   that I was planing on re-doing some of my videos.

Sounds easy enough,  …  just bring back your videos from before and remove the sound track that was the problem with WMG   (Warner Music Group)  And then replace them with another sound track.  or even better, leave it be with the original sound track.

Sound simple enough, so I started looking into do so.  Another plus was, when I re-downloaded the video it would be at the new HD format that YouTube has.

Great!,   Sounds like a winner to me!  Evan if the 5star ratings and XX number of comments go away…  I know they will return!:)

So I start on doing so, Only to find out that!!!

I am unable to edit any of theses videos.

This brings  something else into the mix!!

When you find that you can no longer access your past,  along with videos of your Grandchildren.

One starts to worry.

Anyhow,  I’m really hoping it’s just me being stupid.  Either way though,   I need to get a experts advise.

We  will talk again soon after the Camp Fires have a chance to relax.

Till then don’t worry,




Plugin Nightmares

Posted by Dan | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 22-04-2009


4000+ Plugins for WordPress! :!:

If there is anything that I have learned, …  That Is This!!!


Before you even think about installing a plugin, you better have a backup ready.

Perhaps learning this way may be the best for some of you out there, cause I do know,  … that WAS the  fact for me. :x

Regardless, what I have learned in the process has made me more aware of what to check out BEFORE even trying to install it.  I now spend time googling at least the results of what others have found.  Often, I will find that their are to many negatives on the reviews.  That alone will tell me to stay away from even trying it!

But that is only the start.   …  Then there are those plugins out there that you research and research again that you know after doing so,  …  You know, yes you to need it, BUT   which one?

A great example of this is:  WP-CACHE

Well heck!   there are only at least a dozen of these out there so….     Do you go with:





Yes there are more out there!!!    I myself have visited this area a lot, and have come down to those 4.  I have even tried  WP SUPER CACHE.  However I noticed right off the bat that when I was updating my site,  I too got static pages.  So then my question was, do I need this?

Right now the answer for me is NO!

This plug in to the best to my knowledge is only needed if your web hosting account is unable to handle the traffic.   So for now, I’m staying away from it!!

My True Nightmare One Was:

Google Sitemap!!

I do believe,  I do have this MUST HAVE now working

A course, we will not know the outcome from that until a few days from now!


The plugins I do have now, and are still testing are:

1.  Add to Any: Share/Bookmark/Email Button

2.  AdSense Manager

3.  Akismet

4.  All in One SEO Pack

5.  Custom Smilies

6.  Google XML Sitemaps

7.  Most Comments

8.  My Page Order

9.  Simple Image Link

10.  Smart 404

11.  Top Commentators Widget

12.  Yet Another Related Posts Plugin

Yep!  WordPress may be the best out there,   however It’s going to take time to master the best!

So, Any Ideas?

Till Our Next Campfire! :P



RV Web There Yet?

Posted by Dan | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 19-04-2009


Another Exhausting Day!!

We did finally get our google site map to work for us.  That was of course was only after hours of trying this, and trying that, that  I finally gave in and and got  Hostgator Live Chat on the line  again to solve yet another dilemma.

Then It Was On To:


Videos and photos are a big part of our site.  But yet at first glance, you would not know that and move on.

The photo part is driving me crazy!!  So far, any photo of ours that I try to upload does not work. Yes we have

been able to transfer any photos out there to a slide show, but been unable to get them out there alone.


We will keep at it!!!   My next project will be to add a link to my favorite web sites.

So far though I only have one RV COOKINGSHOW.COM

Till our next time around the camp fire

Fix One Thing, Break Another!

I’ll give it a rest after this post in hopes that someone may know the answer.  Since the last fix I no longer have my Google Site map working!!  :roll:

This is another, I have been told MUST HAVES. If you ever going to find anyone out there in the vast Internet, or should I say, FIND YOU !! :roll:

Hopefully my last site map  is still out their working,  and thus this is how you found this site!  :lol:

I really want to get this site to work for all of  us RVer’s out their.

Another Problem Solved!

Yes, I need to give thanks to my web hosting service.  Since trying to get my new website format switched over, I have had their 24-7 tec support helping me quite a bit.

All this computer stuff is a learning process for me.  Just when you think you have mastered the computer basics,  web building is a whole other topic!  Either way, when I was in school,   …  computers then,  you had to know the html wording to even work with them.  Heck, I still remember my first game console my Granddad gave me!  Yep, it was a Atari system.

Ok, so you have taged me now as a baby boomer!   Yes it’s true! and while we are at it, ….  Microwaves still empress the heck out of me!  Anyhow I’m getting off the topic here, so let me just wrap this up with saying:

I would recommend those of you out there looking for a host provider to use Hostgator!

Not Working Out!   :oops:

Wasn’t able to get the events calendar to work out like I’d hoped.  It kept moving every thing in the third column down to left below the post, and it would never show up in the third column at all. So for now I removed it until I can either find a better plugin or figure out how to get that one to work!  Speaking of plugins, there are so damn many out there!  It just gets flustering trying to sift through all of them!!

Anyhow, our next camping adventure is going to be a week from now at Salt Springs Recreation Area here in Florida. This will be our first time staying at a Federal Reserve Park. :lol:



Posted by Dan | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 15-04-2009


Yep! I’m going to need all the help I can get! :lol:

Just spent the day finally getting what I think is the best event calendar out there.  We will see as time goes by on how well it works. The idea is you should be able to see where we are going next, and be able to link to that site.  Again any and all feedback is welcomed on what doesn’t work, and what I need to improve on.

Till our next post:    HAPPY RVING! :lol:


Hello world!

Welcome to our new site!

I can see now it is definitely going to take some time getting use to using wordpress.  However I know in the long run, it will definitely be a improvement! :) You now will be able to comment on any of our postings for starters,  also it will give me a chance to give updates in between camping trips.   I know I will run into some stumbling blocks along the way so any help or suggestions would be more than welcomed!   :lol:
