    RoblesGT replied to a thread I made on here a while back about building a site for me. He was doing a nice job until about a month ago and then I haven't heard back from him. I need his help now because all the pages on my site got deleted and hopefully he still has the backups. He's active on here but is ignoring me... actually to the time frame were I was trusting and paid him some money before the site was completely finished. I really am hoping someone might know him personally and be able to help me out, the site is down and our club has a event coming up shorty were as people are going to need info on it asap. Not the mention the website link is posted in TWO full page writeups in national jetski magazines for the May issue about our event!


    ANY help would be awesome guys


    btw the link is www.adirondackjetskiclub.com

    Maybe he doesn't have backups?

    I could make something temporary if you want to hire me :o

    ok before you do anything do the following

    a) setup a blog account, and then forward your site to it. Claim the site got hacked and you are in the process of restoring it, and meanwhile here is the info for the next gettogether

    b) if Money was exchanged, I sure hope you got a contract...if not you'll need to tell us what method of payment you used. But 9/10 you are out of luck. Why didn't you have a backup of all your files anyways?

    I appreciate the help guys, thanks! I'm very new to having a worthwhile website and never gave it a thought to back it up. Lesson learned! The reason why the files got deleted, I was edited the admin's in wordpress and thought it would be a good idea to get rid of the account he used as I wasn't sure what he might do since I havent heard back In a long time. Doing that deleted all the pages.

    I'm going to work on the pages today, I should be able to at least piece together the main event page, gallery and about page... just wont look as good as it did

    I never worked with wordpress before and never realized it would effect the site if I deleted a account. I have another admin account but now I know since things were built with the other they a associated with it and go with it. Which sucks but it wont happen again thats for sure.

    I cant wait for this guy any longer..I need to at least get the main event writeup back and the about page. I've tried but I dont have much experience with wordpress and cant figure out how to remake a page and have it save in the correct place for the corresponding webpages on the site. Im willing to paypal money just to get the guidance. Thanks

    Robles did some work for me. The first bit he did was great. The second would have been fine had we had longer to build out the site because we were using a technology he wasn't familiar with. Overall, he is a good guy, so I'd say guess there might be something more to the story.
