Welcome To The Updated DailyTurismo
It has been a few years since we’ve pushed any major changes to DailyTurismo website…but we’ve got some new stuff for all you car lovers in cyberspace including; a new and revamped website, a new commenting system, and that’s about it.
It has been a long two days of fighting WordPress themes and configuring DNS entries, but if you are reading this then you’ve got to the new site. Sorry for the lost comments from the past few days, but our pull of the data from the old site (8558 posts and almost 100,000 comments from July 2012-June 2020) happened on Thursday, so anything posted on Friday was lost in the migration. And some of the old posts look strange from formatting conversions…but we’ll sort them out with some time. Mobile performance and commenting should be much improved.

Are these comments working?
Congrats! I’m glad to hear you got everything sorted.
One small step for …
Woot – it lives!
Well done! Looking forward to many more years of affordable car dreaming!
Yay! Working comments for me. Nice job on the upgrades Vince, the site looks like it buffed out well.
Yup. I have a few more tricks up my sleeve. Email notification of replies in comments needs to be turned on.
This may take some getting used to but I look forward to the new world order.
“I, for one, welcome our new WordPress overlords”
Is that “new car smell” you’re wearing?
Only comment so far is that a condensing of the introductory paragraphs on the homepage would be appreciated. On the old site you could get the gist of the listing and price before clicking on the post, which was always nice.
Brad — let me work on that — the difference is that in the old environment I manually inserted a hard “jump break” in the post after first paragraph, but when the 8558 previous DT posts were imported to the new environment the jump breaks didn’t get imported, so when you went to the main page (or a search result) you saw the entire post..yuck. Now I am using an “excerpt” with feature image so that you see the first image and a few lines of the post, but I haven’t figured out how to make the excerpt include the price/location info yet.
Whoah…this is different.
