The Tech Gremlins Are At Work


The Fife and Drum Miniatures Black Friday sale is going very well with lots of interest coming in from all over the world. There is one technical glitch, going on right now, that affects orders made with credit cards rather than with PayPal. (Note: you can use your credit card with PayPal and it won't affect your order).

The Weebly website editing function isn't working, starting yesterday morning, and I still can not open the page editor. This is important because it is the gateway to my dashboard which allows me to view all of the incoming orders.

I get order notices and details from PayPal so I can receive and fill any PayPal order. For credit card orders, I am only getting a payment advice (which does not include the name of the buyer or what is being bought), thus I can not read these orders and get them shipped.

Weebly has been down since early Saturday November 27th and is still down as of this posting at 10AM CST in Chicago. This has happened before and usually gets corrected within a day or two at the most. I will post an update on my blog when the glitch is fixed.

1) PayPal orders are still working

2) I can accept orders via email and then send you a PayPal invoice for the amount due, less the 20% discount.

3) I will extend the 20% discount sale through Saturday December 5, 2020 which happens to be the anniversary of the Battle of Leuthen in 1757 - seems appropriate, doesn't it?

  1. Hi, Jim. I just noticed this problem you are having. I sent an order by email on Wed 25th November. I wonder if you received it? In case you didn't, I have just resent it again now. If you get both, that is fine, though regrettably not 2 different orders! ;-D Cheers, Rohan.
