Shameless plug for a new website I built for my daughter using WordPress, with a nice vertical menu nav system using a theme called Revolve Pro  :cheesy:
I had hours of enjoyment doing this, not to mention getting the domain away from a private living room hosting by one of her friends.

That's pretty smart.  :cool: (Like the Bewitched font)

Looking for work? (paid)
My sister has moved over to new hosting and Wordpress for her photography site and looking for someone to help set it up.
It's not a big job tbh, it's basically only a gallery.

Yes, I'd be interested. There are some excellent themes for photography.
You can pass my email address to her if you like, mate.

Anyway, I'm sure we can do something.

She's currently having issues with the old host.

My daughter was having issues with her old host too, which is why I did the switch, changing nameservers etc.
I can help with that too, if  she's interested.

I can deal with that from here mate, cheers.  :cool:
Just Host seem to be a bit clingy. (Looking at her bills, the fuckers charged her almost £500 for hosting + domain renewal one year)

That £500 smacks of extortion. No wonder she wants a change.
Might be worth checking if she has a self-hosting WordPress.org arrangement (she probably has) which is much more preferable to WP.com, which is limited.

Self hosted via TsoHost.
Just Host still had its mitts on the domain and needed a push to free it up (even though we supplied the new host with the EPP code a week ago)
And even then it was still attached to their nameservers (now changed so waiting for it to propagate).

I had a similar problem with Fasthosts when trying to transfer Quiltology to my account (unlimited domains) at Godaddy after supplying the IPS tag.
In fact, the delay was partly my fault since I didn't realise that I had to go through an 'add to cart' procedure in Godaddy (at no cost) to marry up the domain with my existing plan.
Duh!

No idea what she's doing with her website yet, she says she can do it herself, but I highly doubt it.  :cheesy: (I gave her your email)
