While on the subject of blogging, I experienced a blogger’s worst nightmare a few days ago… I DESTROYED MY BLOG! Poof! – all gone… except for some jumbled remnants (I wish I’d taken a screen shot).
I had updated WordPress from 2.5.1 to 2.6, and it worked, but I decided I didn’t like it because two of my plugins that I had just spent ages setting up didn’t work – so I thought I’d revert to 2.5.1 – Big Mistake. I was using a fancy gizmo that comes with my hosting to do all this.
I emailed my hosting company Little Oak—my message actually included the words “please help me – I’m desperate”. I got a reply 20 minutes later saying “Would you like to revert to 2 hours ago or 14 hours ago?” I wrote: “2 hours please”, and about a minute later my blog was BACK. PHEW!
I am very pleased with Little Oak—I think I’d describe this as good service. (The gizmo I used actually did warn pointedly that reverting was not a good idea.)
Also… I’ve written up a new page How to subscribe by RSS, and put a link to it in the sidebar (in case anyone’s interested in such things).
Cheers – Robin
