Warning: This post barely mentions the Cubs and even then only in a tangential manner. It will also contain what I can only assume will be a nauseating amount of sentimental nonsense. Please feel free to skip straight to the comments and post inappropriate GIFs, hilarious Alvin photoshops, or even some baseball stuff. In fact, whether you read the post …

Obstructed View on WordPress

In Other Topics by dmick896 Comments

We're now using WordPress as our blogging platform. The comments component we used on Joomla had not been updated even though multiple new versions of Joomla had been released. The service for it had become close to non-existent so it was time to move on. This site has an active community and we enjoyed having the "refresh comment" link at …
