My hero today is James ‘Jamie’ Pollock, computer consultant. I’ve been talking to web design people for months trying to solve an issue on how to put a category feed from a wordpress site into my iweb site’s home page. They’ve all told me point blank “get rid of iweb and start a wordpress site!” And although I realize that would be, in a perfect world, the ideal thing to do, the problem is I’ve got a LOT of content on my iweb site I’d have to transfer over. I would rather archive the content and just add new content in my chosen (albeit unconventional) way – content I can blog about in a category on my current wordpress site.
This is where Jamie comes in. I’m doing my usual online searching for an answer for my problem and I learn an RSS feed would work…and my iweb HAS an RSS feed. So I put the box on my iweb home page, copy the http code from the wordpress site’s category link, and…nothing. I’m thinking it *should* work with the right http code wording. So I go online and find a list of companies that work with MACs in my neighborhood, to try to find someone familiar with iweb, wordpress, AND computer code/wording. In that list is Royalwise solutions, who provide inhome computer training consultation and have a LOT of satisfied customer comments. I sent an email asking what are the magic words/code/etc. to get a wordpress category feed to go into an RSS feed on iweb.
Jamie responded in TWELVE MINUTES. 1 Point for quick customer service, and I wasn’t even a customer.
Jamie gave me the ‘secret magic words’ – so I’m up and running with the what I want! 2 Points.
Jamie said that if my question was that simple, no charge. 3 Points.
Jamie said to contact him if I have any computer needs in the future, and to tell my friends how helpful his company is. Done:) Thanks to James ‘Jamie’ Pollock of Royalwise Solutions for answering my question quickly, kindly, and with respect.
