Site updated ready for v2.0’s release!

I’ve updated most of the pages with the latest screenshots. I had to install yet another WordPress plugin as, annoyingly, if you want to replace an existing screenshot you have to upload a fresh one, delete the old one then rename the new one and then it should (!) appear on the page. Or you […]

Oddities with DropBox link

The other day I copied over a new beta copy of the Toolbox onto my DropBox account at home. Nothing strange about that. However, several people pointed out to me that the link didn’t work. This link has pointed to my .DOTM file for some considerable time, but for some reason it’s now altered. This […]

Better protected WP site than the old days

There weren’t that many plugins available to help keep the spammers away, so I found myself spending a lot of time removing them.

Time off for new projects

New domain I’ve bought a new domain (mikestoolbox.co.uk -i.e. the site you’re on now) so that I can move this site across to a WordPress-based one. No offence Weebly, but you’ve been great for the last 2 years (and 2 months), but now that I’ve been using WordPress more and more, it’s the way I […]

Updated version of my Word add-in (v1.89)

It’s been a few months since the release of v1.87, but after several incarnations of the beta (v1.88), I can now announce the availability of v1.89. There have been *lots* of changes: either to existing features, or adding new features. I’ve also fixed some really embarrassing bug fixes and, as a visitor to this blog, […]
