The static pages (like Store) are working again. I’ve had to fix the redirect plugin by Nick Berlette. If you want it to work with your modern WordPress blog (2.6 or higher) you just need to change a tiny bit.
I’ve been looking at switching host providers from Yahoo for some time. I did a test migration to WordPress.com but discovered that they really don’t seem to get that many people would like to control their own blog. For a simple blog, WordPress.com would be fine but you might as well go with Livejournal.com, Facebook or some other blogging system then. I don’t see what value WordPress.com offers.
If you paste code into a widget, save and when you look again it has gone then the system has removed it.
This is done for security reasons.
or that uses Form or Input tags for instance is not allowed. There are other tags but the effect is the same – they disappear. There are no exceptions to this.
For various reasons we do not permit the uploading and use of plugins here at wordpress.com.
The hosting is simply for your blog even if you would pay $$ for email services. Sure, they have a hack that will allow you to redirect to Google Apps but you might as go with Google’s Blogger then. Perhaps I’m just not getting the point of WordPress.com (not to be confused with WordPress.org). Can someone enlighten me?
Sometime early this afternoon, the categories & tags of my blog disappeared. After a little bit of investigation (I was working quite heavily at the time), I discovered that the wp_term_taxonomy table in MySQL contained minor corruption. I ran repair table ‘wp_term_taxonomy’ and it was corrected.
I’m sure you’ve noticed by now but every so often a captcha will pop up when you’re reading my blog. This appears to be a feature of WordPress 2.5 which I haven’t been able to disable yet. If anyone knows how to disable it, please let me know as the captcha is very annoying.
During the last couple of days this blog was hacked twice due to the old version of WordPress that Yahoo! install on hosted websites. The first hack was sending out a virus which was removed and the site was repaired. The second was graffiti and the deletion of about 30% of the WordPress install.
I followed the WordPress upgrade instructions but ran into a snag where the WordPress user in the MySQL database didn’t have the permissions to alter the tables in the database. There are two solutions to this:
Replace the DB_USER and DB_PASSWORD in wp-config.php with the yroot login password. I didn’t know the yroot password.
