I upgraded Joomla tonight. Other than following the instructions I think everything is working okay.
I also uninstalled Community Builder. It just isn't a feature I'm going to be utilzing at all for a while. Instead, I just need to focus on getting some content that anyone can see up and running.
I've had a lot of fun working with Flickr, so I might see if I can get johncstark.com to automatically show the photo feed from our Flickr account.
This site really is a learning experience for me. I don't anticipate anyone looking at it very often. There is hardly anything here.
