Rebuilding MaryQuilts.com

I managed to wipe out my entire site when updating Wordpress so I'm in the process of rebuilding it since unfortuantely the backup I downloaded didn't work either.

For the most part it will be just tracking down and uploading files but there are some pages that I built the instructions on the site rather than in a PDF file and those will have to be completely redone.

I'm saving the main pages with the same file names so those links will work if you've bookmarked them but if you bookmarked the link to the PDF files, you'll have to update them because they have new link addresses.

Oh, Mary. How frustrating. You had so much there. Good luck getting it all done. I wonder why the backup doesn't work. I may never upgrade again!

That is a lot of work. How terrible! I see you are back up and running with a few exceptions. You are the second person whose blog I've read today that has had this problem updating. It must have been a Wordpress glitch.
