Well, they have been and gone and done it again.
They fucked up my site!
It happened a few days ago when they decided in their infinite wisdom to release a new version of WordPress which is the engine what drives this site [and you though it was sheer talent and hard scribbling?].
I installed it and it immediately broke the engineroom. Some of the equipment Down There just didn’t work any more. Seeing as that equipment was essential, I assumed it wasn’t anything to do with the update, as they would have noticed before releasing the stuff. It had to be something else.
I found it after a lot of sweat and not a few tears. It was the little thingy that put those nice little editing buttons on the comments [and where I scribble my shit]. There was no rhyme nor reason as to why it caused a problem as it had fuck all to do with the areas that weren’t working, but there you go – I had found the culprit. I disabled it with a monkey-wrench and everything works properly, except that those little buttons are gone.
I’m a bit cheesed about that. I liked those buttons. I had a funny feeling they weren’t going to last though, as the bloke who wrote them hadn’t worked on them in years.
So then I had to go around all the sites wot I look after and not only update them but remove their buttons too.
I’m looking for a way to replace them with something similar but so far haven’t had any luck. I’ll keep trying.
In the meantime, if I want to do something in a comment like put in a link or embolden script, I have to resort to the old HTML which is tedious and a pain in the hole.
And they call that progress?
After days of searching, I naturally found an alternative within minutes of posting this.
Fucking Sod’s Law strikes again.
There again, if I hadn’t written about it, I wouldn’t have discovered the alternative!
It doesn’t fucking work.
Ah well…. back to the drawing board.
