McKenna Web Design Announce Sponsorship Deal

Castlecroft Rangers Crest

McKenna Web Design are delighted to announce they have agreed to sponsor the naming rights to the home of Castlecroft Rangers which shall now be known as The McKenna Web Bowl. It is a pleasure to take the opportunity presented by Castlecroft Chairman Dave Brook as we share their passion for Grassroots football and firmly believe in the hard work being carried out by all at the club.


Castlecroft currently play in the Birmingham AFA Sixth Division, sitting in 7th position and their main shirt sponsor is Balls to Cancer who do great work raising funds and giving support and advice to the suffers of that terrible disease. As part of the Sponsorship Deal McKenna Web Blog will carry a copy of every Castlecroft Match Report to help promote the club and their bid to keep progressing up the pyramid in English Football.

Heres to a long a fruitful partnership between ourselves and Castlecroft Rangers

Passwords Coming to an End?

Globe3Have passwords had their day? Is there now a safer way to protect our access on the myriad of different sites that we use on a daily basis? It would appear the powers that be at Google believe so, in an article on Google outlines a couple of methods they are looking at to replace passwords and on the surface they seem like a good idea, obviously there will be issues to be ironed out, what happens if its lost? How quickly can access be restored? What if the device is stolen? But we assume that will be taken care of before any launch. On the other side of the coin It may cut down on the amount of phishing emails sent out, leaving our inboxes free from scam after scam. It should also remove the need for complex passwords so no more SaY67$.Kod just simple, easy to remember passwords. We feel something has to be done, and Google appears to be heading in the right direction in our opinion.

WordPress Site stuck in Maintenance Mode?

Wordpress-HostingHave you ever went to upgrade your WordPress site only for it to hang during the update and then your site gets stuck with the message “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance” This can be frustrating as the message tells you to try again in a minute but never actually comes out of the maintenance mode. The reason behind this is that the maintenance file is not deleted from the root folder of your blog. In order to regain full access to your site just use FTP to delete the Maintenance file from the root folder your WordPress site is in and check your site again. The problem should then be rectified and your site should work as normal again
