Please note: Because of hosting changes at GoDaddy (from Windows server to Plesk server), a number of path and database connections were broken. Looking at the file dates it seems most of them have been broken since August 23 but because of COVID I've not been updating on a regular basis and saw no reason to check. So, I didn't discover it until uploading the "Creative Intersections!" show in Hyde Park. GoDaddy said I didn't need to change a thing. But they do, clearly. Most of the links after this point will not bring up a page. I'm working to fix this with GoDaddy as soon as possible.
