    He offers the service but I don't have it yet. I should have made that clear. Thanks for pointing it out though! I need to practice what I preach when it comes to web stuff.

    Thanks for the reminder. I hadn't really touched my site for several months. We get busy and forget about things like that.

    Basic updates, should be highlighted when you login to the admin.

    Anything buggy or broken beyond what the update system will do requires knowing how to program it.

    - 242 is an absolute nightmare. It's probably either indicative of waaaay too many plugins or a site/theme that has been compromised by hackers.

    - GoDaddy has a well-documented track record of being an awful host. The level of awful is exponential when it comes to their WP hosting. Timeouts seem to be part of their core offering...

    - Re: broken code, this is most often due to plugins that haven't been updated or themes that are no longer compatible with updated rollouts of WP. If your theme hasn't been touched since WP 2.9 and you're on WP 3.7, you probably have quite a few issues.

    If you want to shoot me a PM, I can take a quick look for you. I'm sure Greg would as well, we just never know when he'll wake up to see this. He's known to go on some serious coding benders. ;)
