My Peeps, it is with deep sorrow that I share with you the passing of a FNFD Family!
Cindy DeWolfe passed yesterday after the passing of her husband, Peter on Saturday.
Cindy was a kind, gentle, caring and generous woman. Along with with being a wonderful client!
She was heavily involved in the Ragdoll Society. She was the Editor for RFCI Ragdoll World Online and held various board positions with RFCI.
She also ran her own Ragdoll Cattery RazlDazlRagdolls as well as partnering with her friend Janie in Two Comrades Siberians.
Her passing has taken everyone by surprise and she is deeply mourned.
Let’s welcome a few new FNFD Family Members!
First, we have DreamCatcher Ragdolls!
Custom FNFD WP Theme & graphics on a fresh install.
Next, we have AnamCara Ragdolls!
A custom FNFD Irish inspired theme on a fresh install.
Lastly, we have Florida Ragdolls. Florida is actually a subsidiary of Texas Ragdolls. They are a dual location for their vacation home. We utilized there existing theme and created a new header image that they took of Santa Rosa Beach, Fl and updated their Logo.
Let’s give them a big Howdy to the Family!

Howdy Peeps! We have 2 new Family Members from over the 4 day weekend (which I hope everyone enjoyed!)!
Welcome RagsterRagdolls ( http://ragsterragdolls.com/) from San Diego. Shari & Steve utilized a FNFD Pre-Made Theme called SandStorm that was personalized for them. The Cameo in the Header area is actually one of their ragdoll kittens!
Welcome Coton Cottage ( https://www.facebook.com/coton4u/) Kay came to us for help in starting up a FaceBook Business Page. We helped with all the settings and utilized Graphics from her website.
So with the new WP release, please ensure that you update!!!! For some of you, that should have been done automatically through your Hosting Company. You will still need to set up your Privacy Page (it is not done automatically).
If you need assistance in setting up your Page, please feel free to contact me, but please be aware Hourly Rates will apply and you will need to reacquaint yourself with our updated TOS about GDPR https://furnfeatheredfriends.com/terms-of-service/
You can see 2 examples of a Privacy Page: 1 using the Plug-in by Codelight (https://codelight.eu/wordpress-gdpr-framework/) on my website (https://furnfeatheredfriends.com/privacy-policy/) and the 2nd on my Demo site using the new WP update: https://digitalglitz.net/privacy-policy/
Have an awesome Friday My Peeps!
Guess what’s coming down the pipeline? GDPR!
You ask what is that? Simply: a new privacy regulation.
It’s EU based, so how does it affect me? Answer: If anyone from the EU can visit your site, it applies.
WordPress is already looking at a Core update to help with compliance as well as most plug-in developers.
So, here are a few articles for you to educate yourself.
Via WordPress: https://wordpress.org/news/2018/04/gdpr-compliance-tools-in-wordpress/
Via GoDaddy: https://www.godaddy.com/garage/practical-steps-for-website-gdpr-compliance/
Via Codelight (one of the Plug-in developers): https://codelight.eu/wordpress-gdpr-framework/guide/legal-grounds-for-processing-data/
Direct link to the Plug-in by Codelight: https://codelight.eu/wordpress-gdpr-framework/
So, if you took a look at the Codelight Plug-in Framework, that is pretty much what WordPress is looking at incorporating by default into the next Core update.
I am currently educating myself on all of this and it seems daunting but so far I think for us ‘small potatoes’ we are pretty simple in the info that our websites & plug-ins use. Just remember, I’m not a legal expert and if you have any concerns over legality of your website to consult a lawyer.
As always, I’m here to help!
This Theme comes in 1, 2 or 3 column options.
2 Dividers, 2 Bullet/Accents
Customization of Header with your Logo (or keep the lighthouse), your Website Name & Customized Linkback banner.
Optional: Slider (picture of woman, not included)
Just letting you know that WordPress has a new update available, 4.9.5
Check to see if your Hosting has that update available but remember to update your Plug-ins first!
Howdy FNFD Family!
Due to recent “Help” requests for websites going down for various reasons and Mercury Retrograde (yup, just a little superstitious) I have decided to add a new courtesy service for all my existing and future customers.
I have installed a Plug-in called All in One WP Migration. This plug-in creates a backup of your complete website. I have created a backup of your website and have downloaded a copy for future ‘Just In Case’ use.
This is a one time service that has been performed this week for you!
Some of you already have a backup service being provided by your hosting companies/managed wordpress, so if you already have this you may not see the plug-in in your Dashboard.
If I was unable to obtain a backup of your site, you will receive an email from me.
If you are a Gerlinda.com customer that I have had the pleasure of assisting, I did not do a backup. However, if you would like me to provide this one time service please contact me.
Have an Awesome Friday My Peeps!
