During the next week, the Fairhaven Website will be going through some changes. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
But why the changes?
I’m glad you asked.
The Fairhaven website was a self hosted WordPress.org website.
In other words, this means that Rachel and I where responsible for the maintenance, security, backups, and the performance of the server.
Now that I am moving it to WordPress.com, they handle all the back-end for us (maintenance, security, backups and the performance of the server).
Benefit of the move
All the back-end website stuff is all taken care of by WordPress.com at the cost of $99.00 per year for the premium plan (at the time of this writing).
Downside of the move
Less data storage, no custom theming (php or css) and no plugins.
WordPress.com verses WordPress.org.
You can read more about the two here https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
But there is one problem. . .
The change to WordPress.com was not a perfect transition. Everyone needs to sign up for the email updates again. 🙁
If anyone has any questions leave them in the comments below.
