Over the next few months, I’m going to be doing some cleanup on this site to prepare for the “next stage” in its life. A few things I’m going to focus on:

  1. Site(s) cleanup – a few people have found a place to create subsites of this one. This is a feature that is not yet (supposed to be) available, so those sites will be deleted. In the future, I may allow paying members to create their own subsites, but not yet.
  2. Plugins cleanup – some plugins (functionality) are making parts of this site run slowly or not function well. I’m going to minimalize the plugins this site depends on in order to streamline it. (So some things may break – send me a message if they do.)
  3. Site restructuring – I’m going to streamline the content as well to make for better reading and finding of information – beginning with Menus and Categories (today).
  4. New theme – I’m (still) in the middle of creating a new theme for the next cycle of this site. Hopefully we’ll get that implemented shortly.
  5. Grammar plugin – I’m planning to pull all the Grammar posts out of the normal Posts and separate them into their own area for better organization and management of the grammar points.

Logistically speaking, the following also need to be updated:

  1. Better SEO – This means going back through the old Posts, editing, updating, and improving SEO.
  2. Better Backups – possibly including separating out the Media files to a separate domain (should also improve page load time)

Summer Update 2017

Let me give you a really quick update about me. This may help you understand why this site hasn’t received as much “love” lately. As you may have read elsewhere on the blog, the following have kept me extremely busy since about 2013: I’m working 2 (nearly full-time) day jobs I’m trying to change my […]

Work for the Fall

Key To Korean needs an upgrade.  After being “away” from the site for a while, here are the first major things I noticed when coming back to it: Design: complicated, cramped, too much information/stuff Colors: not bad, but could use tweaking and optimization Fonts: old and small Images: not consistent Page organization: haphazard, unorganized Plugins: […]

Website Updates and Downtime

I started performing some website updates today and in my effort to speed things up and remove some of the clutter, I’m now getting some 404 errors on old posts.

This is actually a GOOD THING because the brokenness now will help me fix things up and make everything run much faster and more smoothly in the future.

Please BE PATIENT as we work out the kinks in this latest update. Remember, we’ve got BIG THINGS coming (initiatives to bolster a bigger and better “Community” on the site) in 2015. So, while there may be some bumps in the road along the way, ultimately, this will be for the long-term benefit of the site and its users.



Apologies for our Contact Form ERROR

Admin note:

Wow guys! I thought we weren’t very popular because I haven’t been getting ANY mail in my inbox from this site for 3-4 months now! Turns out there’s just something wrong with this Contact form! ㅠㅠ  So sorry about that.

But I was smart enough to install a plugin catches all your messages and stores them in a database for me. So I have just FOUND all your messages.

If you’ve contacted us within recent months, please be assured that I will reply to you personally (with my apologies). But for now, if you have any more comments or questions, please direct them to:

admin (at) keytokorean (dot) com

Again, apologies for the error. I’ll get this fixed as soon as possible.
