This website was running under an older version of DotNetNuke (dotnetnuke.com), and was in severe need of an upgrade. I’ve only got the time rather recently to work on it.
However, it wasn’t very smooth. This may be because I have neglected upkeep on the platform for a while. It seems that the hosting provider had reverted the site back to a .NET 2.0/3.5 application pool, when it really needed to be a .NET 4.0 pool. I know, that was gibberish. The point was, it got fouled up. Fortunately, I had a backup, but getting the backup restored was not fast. Plus, it wasn’t foolproof. I had to try it a few times before it finally worked right.
And finally, because I had been struggling with it for a while, it took longer for me to realize that a problem (http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Resources/Forums/forumid/200/threadid/424900/scope/posts.aspx) was a actually a bug, and not something I did wrong.
But, we’re all happy now. I’m going to see if I can get my artistic son to help me make this prettier, and I’m going to teach him web technology in return.
