Nov 19 approx 8:30 pm ET: I apologize to everyone. I have attempted a change in the site address and have created a problem. Please read as you wish, but accounts on WordPress.com may not work, comments may not register. I am seeking answers as fast as I can.
Edit #1 later in this Nov 19 evening: I’ve managed to reset things to their original configuration and all is working correctly. It appears I was too impatient and didn’t let various changes percolate through the internet before moving to the next step, er, the next right step. 😀 I will be attempting the final bit of change in a few days.
Now that I have a little bit of time, I would like to explain that we are attempting to create a new URL for everyone to bookmark, one that can be used to help in migrating this site to another hosting service if we for some reason need to do so or are required to do so by events. If I can successfully change us over (seamlessly!) to the new URL, everyone who bookmarks the new URL will be able to follow us easily to any location no matter where the site is hosted.
I will not be able to finish this process until after Thanksgiving. Meanwhile the site should be working as it always has. I apologize if anyone was inconvenienced earlier this evening.
