Back On Track!

Some of you might notice that we had heavy problems with our website and our provider last week because of too much traffic. Finally we pulled the plug and acquired our own server to serve our readers with a better performance of our website and without having any downtime. Please let us know if anything is not working after the transfer to the new server.

Sorry to all our readers and advertising partner for any inconvenience and we hope we won't have any problems like this in the future. So we will have more time to write more in depth tutorials, hacks or tricks about WordPress! 🙂

Thanks a lot!

Other blogs already mentioned Child Themes but I've found so far only posts where they just talking about the activation and modification of the style sheet.
