NEW “THEME” AND OTHER UPGRADES REQUIRED
by Sharon Rondeau
(Aug. 25, 2020) — Last winter The Post & Email was informed that upgrades to the site would likely be needed in 2020. We subsequently launched a fundraiser to which readers responded generously.
The funds collected were largely used to upgrade our “Comments” section twice: the first time to add the ability to edit a comment within five minutes of its submission, and the second two weeks ago after readers’ comments mysteriously stopped appearing.
We thought all was well until last week, we began seeing frequent “critical error” messages when attempting to publish new articles. Troubleshooting performed today by our hosting company, Pressable, revealed that our WordPress theme is outdated and can no longer handle our publication needs.
We very much want to continue our work and have engaged a developer to begin the major overhaul. We can accept financial support through SquareUp through credit or debit card. Alternatively, you may send a check to:

We thank you for your support.
