Yay!

What I suggest you do is quietly edit your front page with a link to the new site.

What they did was so darn crappy!

Oh, and continue to pursue getting access to your old domain name. The most direct is to change the DNS pointers so it goes to your new site (and in time, people simply use your new name). Use htaccess to rewrite any searches based on your old name to the new one.

If this is all content that can be copied and saves somewhere, always do so in case your new host is a pain.

Thanks! Having access to my files (particularly the healthcare page) saved me an enormous amount of work. Big relief.

I'm planning to do that very thing, Lynx. I'm going to go through today and save the remainder of the Blogger pages as HTML pages as an emergency back-up. Once I get the new site up and see that it's running smoothly, I am going to hide all of the content on the old site except the home page, and will put a "We've moved!" thing on there.

Never heard of htaccess, but will look into it. Thanks for the tip!

Well, I thought the new site was ready to go, but in testing today I ran into some issues. Every 3rd or 4th time that I load a page, the layout doesn't render properly (everything shifts; background does strange things). I've checked my code and don't see anything obvious that could be causing it, but I could be missing it.

I'd greatly appreciate it if a couple of volunteers could try loading and re-loading pages to see if does anything weird. The new site is here: www.tlpmarketplace.com.

Thanks.

I'll go move this. I hate forgetting!

I think your new site looks very cute! And I do love the favicon!

Your new website looks so cheerful and bright, sef!

I just tried your site with both Chrome and IE, and didn't have any problems with any of the pages loading and reloading.

Yay! Oh, thank you so much. :)

We're now officially open for business! I have added some new items, as well as removed some things that were perpetually out of stock (what's the deal with Terramycin?). I'm also offering a special new item that was designed for TLP by the kind folks at AnimalsInk:

I wondered where you had gone! So glad that you're still in business. I hadn't bookmarked your URL before so every time I needed it, I would just come to your thread here on GL to find it. You weren't listed here (GL) for a little while.

As far as Terramycin availability, I talked with a pet store owner and apparently it's only made once a year. They try to make enough for the year but obviously it's created problems.
