->> Looking for a person to make some modifications to my website, most should be minor. I have some problems that need to be fixed and they are beyond my skill level. The person who did the original build is no longer in the business. If anyone has a recommendation for a web build service I would appreciate it.

->> How about some info on your website first? Give us its link so we can look at it. Was it built with old HTML, HTML5, WordPress, Muse, Drupal, etc.? What type modifications and fixes are you looking for? Etc.

Some of us are good in certain fields or know people who are. But without knowing even the lowest basics of what you have and what you're seeking nobody can help you.

->> Sure Doug. WordPress hosted by Dreamhost and linked to two SmugMug accounts. There is an error message on the face page and I can no longer backup the site. Those are the only two issues that I am aware of. The link is www.stevenlimentaniphotography.com

->> Steven...

Thanks. That's a good start. If your site was built using HTML or HTML5 using a page builder like Dreamweaver then I could offer assistance. Dreamweaver allows direct access to the server files where you can do backups and reloads manually. Being WordPress that is out of my field. However, there are plenty of WP people that are part of the SS group who might be able to offer help.

Can your Dreamhost kill the site code thereby allowing you to rebuild/reload it from a previous backup? This would be like scrubbing your C: drive and reinstalling the O/S.

->> Doug, sounds good, but unlike my photo files which I backup daily, my website backup is too old to do that.

->> Steven, I believe this error is because your web host upgraded their PHP version and your WordPress theme needs to be updated as well for compatibility. Unfortunately your theme name "simplicity" seems to be pretty common so it is hard to tell from a Google search which specific theme you are using.

The first step is figuring out which exact theme you are using. You should be able to find that information at this page:

As far as backing up your site, what specifically do you mean when you say you can't back it up any longer? Were you doing it a certain way before that has stopped working?

Here is the general documentation for backing up a WordPress site:

However there are a variety of WordPress plugins available that aim to simplify the process.
