Update on transfer of sites

Brotherhood News is offline at the moment. Matt is working on it. It’s the last to get transferred to the new hosting service, and there appear to be some issues with the transfer.

Other sites have been transferred already and are up. Forthright Press has to be redone, with the shopping area added a second time. That doesn’t get transferred automatically.

In other news, The Missus and I fly home to Brazil on Thursday, arriving, Lord willing, Friday morning sometime. It’s been a good visit with friends, family, and supporters. A positive thing about travel also is returning home, sleeping in one’s own bed, and returning to one’s own routine.

Followers and posting

TFR now has over 3000 followers, says the WP system count. This includes social media contacts also, so it’s almost as good as it looks.

Question: how many of the Fellows use the post option on the main page? How many use the dashboard? Just thinking here in terms of theme change. This one is not responsive, that is, doesn’t adapt well on mobile.

There’s a child theme to this one that does, but we’d have to move off of the WP hosting onto our own host server. Which is not a bad thing, but would involve some work.

Some of our sites are offline due to a server outage

OfflineOur hosting server, for FPress, Forthright Mag, BNc, and others, appears to be down and has been for an hour or so, at least. My blog is also on this server.

I’ve not heard from anyone about it, but I assume it’s not a problem with just my access. My IP was blocked a couple of times from it, which was, and is, an unwise approach.

TFR is unaffected, since it’s hosted by WordPress.com. So everyone can double up here for reading and interaction.


WordPress has made a major update and it…

WordPress has made a major update, and it appears that our theme used here on TFR does not agree well with it. Social media share buttons are aligned vertically. There’s nothing we can do but wait for the Great Ones who run WP to fix it.

Time to renew hosting and domain name of…

Time to renew hosting and domain name of TFR, along with a number of other domains and Internet charges that belong to the Forthright / GoSpeak ministry. No single fee is large, but over the year they add up. Seems many, if not most, of our renewals come in January.

If you, as a child of God, have been blessed by TFR, Forthright Magazine, BrotherhoodNews.com, Christian Hub, Believing Prayer, or any of our other sites, please consider a donation to help keep them going. You can use PayPal or send a check through the mail to our overseeing congregation in N. Little Rock.


Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.

Welcome to Josh Gulley

josh-gulleyWe’d like to welcome Josh Gulley as the newest Fellow here on TFR. Josh teaches chorus at DeKalb County High School in Middle Tennessee and attends the congregation in Smithville.

Eugene has posted a number of Josh’s articles from the Smithville church bulletin, so he arrives as a figure already familiar to us. And he’s already made his first post today, which we hope will be the first of many edifying articles.

We had the privilege of meeting Josh earlier this year at Tenn. Bible College’s Spiritual Renewal Lectureship.

Please make Josh feel welcome.
