Error 404 and so much more

Error 404 and so much more

The customized error 404 pages look like the image above. Cute, yes?

More articles were added to the articles page.

I managed to find the .mp3 sound file I took from the Murder House Flip episode. My Sirv account automatically backs up every media file uploaded to this site which includes .mp3 files–how lucky is that? Thank you, Sirv! The file is back below the mp4 video clip.

With the addition of the plugin WP Last Modified Info, it is now possible to see precisely when each page and post was last modified.

Added a link to a blog article – BTTF# 19: The Tragic Death of Child Actress Judith Barsi in Canoga Park Remembered 25 Years Later–you can see a screen capture of the history of the selling of the house from Judith and Maria’s murder on to the current residents, the Berdahl family, as featured in Murder House Flip.


Please consider making a donation of $1 or more if you want to support my ongoing efforts to keep maintain this project. I could really use the money.  Thanks much in advance to anyone who decides to contribute.


That’s all for now. Until next time.

Accessibility added/Globe Magazine Article

For deeply personal reasons, I’ve added a plugin to help the low sighted and blind read this site. I am a disabled person myself; I have no problem going through lengths to adapt my site. Under the + which opens the site widgets, on the right hand side is a blue circular icon with a white figure of a person.

Click on this, and it will give options to change text size, styles, fonts, and screen contrast. It will also read the entire site aloud.

I was going through my old Judith galleries just now when I discovered an old scan I did of a Globe magazine article back in 2010. Apparently, I forgot to list it in the All Articles photo album; major blunder on my part! It is now part of the album on the articles page.

 


If anyone is feeling charitable and/or generous, I could use a donation of $1 or more to help pay site expenses. I still need to make up the $21 I spent upgrading the site’s theme. Please donate here:

Thank you to anyone who choses to contribute. I really need all the help I can get.


That’s all for now. Until next time.

For the theme of it

For the theme of it

One of my friends said last night that the site layout –the theme–is hard to navigate. I am well aware of this. As of right now, I cannot afford to upgrade the theme to make the layout easier. It costs $21 per year. I am trying to pay off $81 in credit card debt before February 12. That is exactly why I started the ko-fi page so that perhaps someone would help out with site expenses every now and then. Upgrading the theme would help all others easily navigate this site; I just can’t afford to at the moment. I have made it the current $21 goal on the ko-fi page. If anyone wants to chip in, please feel free to do so via ko-fi or paypal. Any amount given is much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Back to work for me. Until next time.

 

Here I go!

Here I go!

Hello, readers and Judith fans!

Yesterday I began an update process which is on-going.  I’m working steadily on it. Lots more to do. Here’s what I’ve done so far:

(self-hosted, so youtube, google, and NBC can’t sue me for posting)

  • edited the Entertainment Tonight clip — it is now self-hosted also, just in case it ever has to come off of youtube. One never knows when linking other account clips.
  • added better image of the Sea World Ad — thanks, Tracy, for finding it!

Here’s what I am attempting to do:

  1. Start a page to support the site. It is similar to Pateron, but doesn’t have as many fees. I will update as long as I can with content.
  2. Get the theme to actually work. A few have told me the theme is broken. It is, unfortunately. I don’t have the money to fix it yet. Getting the money as best I can–very slowly. Here’s a screenshot of what it is supposed to look like:

Sit tight, because the work around here is just beginning. More to come!

Whew!

Whew!

For all it’s worth, I am exhausted!

I did meet the $64 goal on January 7, last Wednesday with an $11 surplus I never expected. I’ve already put it toward bettering this site. A final donor gave $4.00; this post is for her.

I’ve changed the theme; surprisingly complex story there. Hopefully it is much easier to load and read. I’ve also replaced the youtube video of TLBT’s theatrical trailer because I recently discovered the previous user whose video I was linking no longer has the account it was posted on. Ay, the consequences of using other people’s videos! The Land Before Time page is here.

If anyone finds any links or images that do not work, please email me. I am not always aware if content isn’t working.

Thank you to all who donated. You three really saved me this month!

That’s all for now. Until next time.

To keep on going

To keep on going

Another generous donation, this time from a fan, came in yesterday. This person was as good as their word as they promised their donation a full week ago.  Only $4 more go now. The bill is nearly wiped from its slate. I never thought 2 people could be so giving; I never thought I’d get so close to $64 because no one had been donating lately. I suppose when the goal is clear and deadlines are pressing, the “magic” happens. I am eternally grateful for the support. Only $4 shy! I’m starting to believe again with a little under 5 days to go. Here’s hoping for a little longer. Thank you all who continue with me on this evolutionary journey!

Click here to donate.

Please consider giving $1 or more. Thanks and love!

That’s all for now. Until next time.

A donation lifts my spirits

A donation lifts my spirits

Lo and behold, this morning I was shocked by a donation from a long time friend who isn’t even a Judith fan. With about 11 days left, I now need $30.25. It is doable! I feel 100% better about this now. Thank you, Phil! I love you! 😀

Please donate $1 or more here:

Pay The Judith Fund using Paypal.Me


I updated the theme (again) and took away the flickr photo stream plugin. It was taking too long to load. Now the site should load much faster.

That’s all for now. Updates soon to follow. Love to all who browse and read! 😛

‘The movie’s only real acting.’/A thank you!

‘The movie’s only real acting.’/A thank you!

High and deserved praise, indeed. Added this review from the York, Pennsylvania Dispatch. As with the other articles before, it is also viewable via the 2nd page of the article gallery.

Shout-out and personal thank you goes to Chris from the Judith Barsi facebook page for his/her/their recent donation to the site. This update is for you, friend! 😀 Your caring absolutely keeps me and this project going!

New theme and fixed video

New theme and fixed video

I changed the theme of the site. I hope all of you out there like it. I also noticed the youtube video of “A Little Peace And Quiet” of the New Twilight Zone episode didn’t work anymore because the video was taken down at some point. That is one of the consequences of using other people’s videos on youtube. I fixed it. It should work now.

Once again, if anybody is feeling generous, I could really use a donation for the site. I’ve spent all I could and cannot afford to spend anything more until Christmas.

If anything else is broken on the site, don’t hesitate to contact me; I will fix it.

Hopefully, more updates will come in December around the holidays.
