  1. I don't think you're going to find a good Pricewatch clone script for free. (Also, incidentally, this thread is #1 on Google for "pricewatch clone script.") The only other one that I've found that looks decent is this one: http://www.kaonsoftwares.com/price-comparison-script.html


    It's $450 and has an online demo of the user and admin interfaces.


    Alternatively, you could post your needs at someplace like Elance or some other freelance site and see what kind of bids you get. Will probably be tough to beat $159 though.


    Good luck.

  2. WP reverts to default theme on file access collision: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3907


    Not sure what would be causing that on such a regular basis for you though.


    One user's solution was to name her custom theme's folder to "default", so WP would "revert" to the correct theme. That's one way I guess.


    Interestingly enough, this thread is #7 in Google for "wordpress 2.2 theme reverts to default." Helpful.

  3. So what else am I suppose to do with this "test blog"?

    You're supposed to install it using the same version as your live blog. Leave all settings as default including permalinks, plugins, etc. Upload a theme and try it. Watch it work. Change your permalink structure. See if that breaks it. Upload and activate a plugin. See if that breaks it. Upload and activate your next plugin. See if that breaks it. Upload and activate your next plugin. See if that breaks it. And so on and so forth. Go through every change you have made from the default setup to what you have now on your live blog. Eventually you will come to whatever it is that broke it.


    Or, copy your wp-config.php and /wp-content and reinstall.


    Outside of that, like Bruce said, without access to your files (or even a link to a test blog that isn't working) there isn't really much we can do. WP works fine, and Bruce has that theme working on his test site, so it's something to do with your configuration.

  4. I don't buy it either. There is nothing to change when you upload a theme. If you are messing with any permissions you're thinking too hard. Unzip, upload, select it. That's it.


    You have a link or something to a WordPress site where the theme is not working? As far as I can tell, the site in your sig is still using the default.

  5. Yeah, there was a lot of commotion when it got pushed out to CURRENT too, and there will be commotion again when it goes to STABLE. That's what happens when admins aren't paying attention.


    I've been running EDGE since 11 was pushed out for CURRENT, so maybe a month or more. There have been a few hiccups but nothing major considering. At the moment I'm on 11.5.20-E13361 and all is quiet on the western front. Knock on wood.

  6. It sounds almost like mmogm.com is parked on top of mmogamingnetwork.com and UseCanonicalName is not turned off (so anything without a trailing slash will go to whatever the primary domain is).


    Given that you aren't using mmogamingnetwork.com anymore, you should probably have your account changed so mmogm.com is your primary domain name and mmogamingnetwork.com isn't referenced anymore.

  7. I think it would be both light on the processor and bandwidth.

    Sure, if it's just you. But multiply anything times a few hundred servers and a several tens of thousands of domains and it all adds up. Not to mention the time it will take to put it together and maintain it. And there is the cost of all the help desk tickets that will come in if it ever stops working.


    If you want a cute little button for your site check out host-tracker.com. It's free for everyone and only counts against your bandwidth.


    Otherwise, why not just have a text link that says something like "Server Uptime: Almost Always" and have it link to the tchstatus.com page for your server?

  8. Now everything's working fine!

    Almost. When I visit http://www.toptenlisted.com/ it is trying to load http://www.toptenlisted.com/Index.html and I get a 404. The link in the title is still redirecting to http://www.toptenlisted.com/wordpress-2.2/wordpress/.


    Your pages seem to be working, you just need to get the root figured out.


    Is this sort of client free?

    Of course.

    and how fast does FTP work with it?

    It's an FTP client, so it handles FTP really well.


    I also visited the site and do I download all five files? If so , the is there a particular place required to download them to?

    You want the third one down: FileZilla_2_2_32_setup.exe
