Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter February 8, 2015

SHF_feb_8

If you’ve ever tried to build a website then you know that sometimes inexplicably things can break. In my case I think it was my attempt to fix things that really knocked things off the rails. Recently many of you have told me there were issues with the images on ScoutPatchHQ.com. I spent the better part of the weekend cleaning out the bowels of the website and it’s now clean and live.

Without going into detail here was the basic problem. When I upload items for sale the image folders are separate and each listing has an “address” for the image that shows the patch. In my case those addresses got scrambled so I had the wrong image showing up for a whole bunch of items.

When I first sat down to tackle this Friday evening I was doing them one at a time. Eventually by Saturday I learned that the folders were the problem and I was able to speed things up and do twenty at a time. Needless to say it wasn’t until 1 AM Sunday that I finished the job.

So if you want to visit the site today and poke around looking for items I should be able to deliver on a clean site free of errors. I could have missed something so please let me know if you find something out of whack. I hope you’ll visit www.ScoutPatchHQ.com and see the improvements.

I am using the closing block in the newsletter today to take you back to November, 2011 and the very first episode of my podcast Scouting Hot Finds Radio that featured an interview guest.
