    • I recently did a fresh install of OSX Yosemite on my 2009 MacBook Pro, and reinstalled my most used software, including MAMP, for test installing sites locally. Prior to the OSX fresh install, I had no problems installing Newspaper demos on my MacBook Pro. After the OSX Yosemite fresh install, I received the message "The link you followed has expired" when attempting to upload Newspaper9 into a WordPress test site.  After doing some research on the net, I determined the problem was most likely caused by the WordPress Maximum File Upload Size, which was set to 8mb by default.  The Newspaper 9 file was 11 mb. To increase the default WordPress Maximum file upload size, I added the following lines to .htaccess php_value upload_max_filesize 64M
      php_value post_max_size 64M
      php_value max_execution_time 300
      php_value max_input_time 300 This resolved the problem.  This method was among several possible solutions I found at the following link: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-increase-the-maximum-file-upload-size-in-wordpress/ NOTE:  In order to see .htaccess in Mac Finder, you need to already have your system set to show hidden files.  You will find instructions on how to do this at the following url. (It has info on how to show hidden files on versions other than Mavericks) https://ianlunn.co.uk/articles/quickly-showhide-hidden-files-mac-os-x-mavericks/
    • I decided to upgrade netpressionist.com to Newspaper 9 and finally learn how to use the TC Composer.  I use Visual Composer on most of my sites, including netpressionist.com, but I did not have many Visual Composer posts on that particular site, so I decided to go all in with TD composer. I  converted the Visual Composer posts to regular posts, and recreated the netpressionist.com homepage using TD Composer. TD Composer actually isn't too bad,  if you commit some time to using it, and not concentrate on how something would be done differently in Visual Composer.  With that said, I still prefer Visual Composer at this point. With the posts converted and the  homepage recreated, I deactivated the Visual Composer Plugin.  Next, I will explore more of the tagDiv Cloud Templates, and experiment with assigning them to single WordPress posts.
