I have found myself getting lost in the labyrinth of WordPress settings at times and I made an interesting discovery days ago. Where there was a page of comments waiting approval and spam comments, which has always been those bot comments filtered out, I discovered a hidden treasure pile of comments. Actual comments, from actual people that I have been interacting with for a long time in some circumstances. Some of these from many months ago and these comments never showed themselves for approval. So, I have been replying to ages old comments recently. If it was a comment of yours, I am very sorry for the delay!
I just hope that no-one feels that I have just been ignoring people. Sori sori!
If you are someone who can tell me why comments from people who had been approved for instantaneous posting of comments previously, are suddenly in my spam comments folder, it would be good to know so please tell us!
Hello to you!
Many of my super readers are also fellow WordPress users. I discovered a little something about WordPress plugins and I thought I would share. (Had I known this, I never would have made this mistake.)
Many of you know that I went on a reformatting spree and managed to thoroughly destroy my blog pages. Some of which are yet unfixable.
Apparently, when you install your first plug-in on wordpress, you can say fare-the-well to some of your wordpress perks, previously taken for granted. For example; the plug-in I installed, completely scrambled my formatting. In a forever kind of way. I changed to varying themes with minimal success in retrieving things lost. One of the permanent losses is my reblog button. As someone who loves to share great posts on occasion, this was a real sad moment of realisation for me.
Worst of it? I did all that damage for a plug-in I didn’t even want! Ugh…
I finally spoke to WordPress about what I can do and was informed that when you install your first plug-in (!Any plug-in!), the reblog button is gone forever. (I noticed myself that if my reblog button on my site is missing, then I have no ability to reblog from others sites either…) *Sniff sniff
If this happens to you and you want a reblog button for your site, you can install another share plug-in which will give you the capability to create a button for wordpress sharing.
Good Luck; Ask yourself if you reeeaaaalllllyyyy need that plug-in!
Yours truly decided that she was going to give this blog a complete make-over. In the process, I seem to have installed some items which did not work well with my format and seems to have scrambled … or just deleted…. many things on this website.
Basically, I got a bit over-motivated and broke my site. 😦
I am working with wordpress to correct these ‘issues’ as quickly as just is possible. Please be understanding. We will find a way to get things back to normal soon!
Thank you 🙂
I. am. an. idiot.
