To all you CHUfanatics out there. Just wanted to give you all a heads up that starting tonight, we are migrating CHU to it’s new self hosted platform.
What does this all mean?
CHU has grown drastically since it’s beginning and it’s now time to move away from WordPress hosting to our own, which will give us more flexibility and features.
What to expect during the migration?
Not a whole lot actually except wait to see when the new site loads, it looks drastically different as the site got a makeover so you’ll know.
You may hit the old site for the next 24 to 48 hours depending on your ISP DNS and how fast they update them to reflect the IP address change. DNS is a way to translate a domain name (comicsheatingup.net) to an IP address for you non-techies. If you do not see the new website within 48 hours, you may want to clear your browsers cache and cookies.
Your old WordPress login will not work any longer now that CHU will be standalone. We hope to work with WordPress to migrate existing subscribers and such but we not sure how well this will go since it’s in the hands of the WordPress developers and support using their Jetpack plugin.
Once we get settled in, we plan to allow subscribers to sign up so you can have your very own CHU.net login to post comments with, etc.
So please bear with us during this migration which could affect your comments and posting abilities, usernames, etc.
If you use the WordPress Application for Phones and Tablets (Android or Apple), you will no longer be able to follow this site from the app. Not to worry though, the new site is mobile friendly so you can load it in any web browser. I hope to have something in development for a CHU phone app in the coming future.
Sit back and hope you enjoy the new website.
