Update on my WordPress Woes

36 Comments

It’s fixed! The lovely Alex G. on staff at WordPress started off his note to me by promising not to eat me, as per my concern in the last post. He then informed me that the problem was with an image in one of my articles which had an errant “/” within its coding. Something that I, in a million years, would not have suspected. He fixed it for me, and voila! Problem solved.

I’d like to give a shout out to Sammy D. and to my darling Belinda for going to great lengths to provide me with possible solutions to my woes. Thank you both. 😀

The moral of the story: if you have a problem, go to support and/or post about it. And don’t be afraid – WordPress doesn’t eat bloggers. At least Alex G. doesn’t.

There's a writer in here, clawing her way out.

  1. Glad you found a way to get help. I’ve always found it a great chore to find support from WP as there isn’t support unless you find a forum and someone to help you out and not usually in a timely fashion. Good for you. 🙂

  2. Neh – dunno how you do text mode dear. I only go in when things go squiff in visual. / perhaps I should give it a tr/y?
    HOW the HECK does a / do all that damage?! Cos they were there before.
    What I would not give to know all that stuff about coding really. I KNOW – I could go study it or something and then get a job working on wordpress staff. I think ‘coding’ should be a compulsory school subject. Probably more important than a ‘second language’ – IT IS a second language. Dang – that could have been my post for today.
    HAPPY all back to sorted. Have a good weekend.

  3. Delighted to hear this, Linda – both the sorting out of woes, and the avoidance of a cannibalistic act courtesy of a fellow writer! Reminded me of a splendidly ambiguous line from Flanders and Swann’s classic ‘I Don’t Eat People’ song – ‘I won’t let another man pass my lips…’ which has always made me howl with laughter!

  4. I am now clued in to now avoid using the letter ‘l’ in all cutlines in the future. Thanks, Linda G. And I’ve never written a thing in visual mode, only text. Doobster, why must you get me thinking about his stuff?

  8. Well congratulations on getting the problem resolved. Strange that an errant “/” would suddenly appear. You’ve used that image in the past without a problem, haven’t you?
