  • WordPress?

    I currently have my website with Office Live Small Business. This has been great since I got in during beta testing and they provided the hosting and domain name at no charge. My thought was to establish a web presence now in anticipation of a part-time business when I retire from my day job. Then after a while they stopped covering the domain name (although they did offer a no cost alternative), and now they're stopping their free hosting. All this to say I'm not ready to spend the money for a website just yet. A friend recommended something called Wordpress. Apparently they offer free hosting for a very minimal web presence where I can display pictures of my woodworking along with short descriptions (which is all I need right now). Does anyone out there have any experience with this site? Are there any others to look at? I'd appreciate the advice.

      Wordpress is the way to go for websites in the future. There is and also in the .com site things are quite limited and can change at any time. In the .org site you have complete control over content and layout. You can change content at anytime and as often as you want. You do need to have a domain name usually about $10/yr and hosting is as little as $3.95/month.
      Send me a pm and we can talk more if you want.

        A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

        I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

        Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...

        This is only my opinion.

        Hi Linda, My first reaction is it looks good, and my new toy craving started to twitch, but I thing it will be very limiting very quickly.

        It is a small engraving machine and if that is what you want and need maybe OK. You are limited to 1/8 shank...

        [QUOTE=Quartz43;n873079]No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

        I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure...
