I’ve altered the look of the blog slightly. There would have been more alterations, only getting these changes to take was a complete and utter palaver. I have a feeling the time-and-time-again connection issue has reared its ugly head once again. It took me literally five million, eight hundred and thirty seven and a half attempts to adjust the header. The half attempt was when I gave up and opted for a logo instead, but I thought I’d try once more… and guess what! The tweak finally took. Nothing like an easy job when a hard one can take its place, is there?

I don’t know whether the issues are related to the WordPress platform or an update to Windows 10, although it may be somewhere in between. The last time I tried to contact WordPress regarding the issues, I couldn’t get onto the forums, so this time around I will not even try. If there was a connection issue, with all the times its occurred now, you’d hope it would have been spotted and sorted, wouldn’t you?

So. Issues mean no pictures. Issues also may mean another week without a Sound of Summer post, but we’ll have to see about that. It may be miraculously resolved within the next few minutes. Even with a blocked nose I won’t be holding my breath.

Here’s a Totally Silly Limerick to sum up the experience:

My blog has gone from black to white
And it truly is a different sight
But there are hitches
Can’t upload pictures
And that gives me a dreadful fright!

It’s the little things that make all the difference. Minor annoyances can cause major woes if we let them!

This post is posted in connection with my Monthly Theme …it’s the little things… May is coming to an end, but if you’d like to take part and post your own post based on the theme, should you feel an overwhelming compulsion to do so, this link will take you to the page with all the details.

  2. Hi Tom! 🙂

    Yes, WordPress is screwed up! 😦

    I made changes to MY blog and everything worked in the editor, but wouldn’t change my actual page!!! 😦

    In the end I gave up… 😦

    God Bless!

    1. Don’t tell TL, Prenin, but W10 is responsible for a great deal of havoc in computerland. So VERY glad I got it out of my computer’s system after IT placed itself on my computer! Talk about outrage. Sorry to hear you have ‘puter’ problems as well…Good luck fixing it! VK

    2. That’s strange, Prenin. I know the customize screen doesn’t always show the changes exactly as they appear, but the changes do take when I make them. Are you still having the notification problems as well? I’d pop on by the support forum if I were you!

      1. It’s an ongoing problem, but one i can live with, what bothers me is that WordPress only reports likes, not comment emails and I’ve had no success in getting help.

        Nothing has worked right since Windows 8… 😦

        God Bless! 🙂



  3. I’m sorry you’re having difficulties again, Tom, but I do really like the new white background! (And it’s a really good thing I proofread my comments before I post them, because I first typed ‘shite’ background – not at all the comment I’d intended!) 🙂

    1. I’ve had the black background for such a while now, Diane, I thought it was time to give all of our eyes a rest! And your comment was quite right – I have tried some shite backgrounds as well, before settling for this one! Hehehe! Typos, eh! At times they certainly do change the whole meaning!
